The pharma industry needs to be in a state of continuous, steady improvement to spur medical advances. And, as the life sciences industry evolves, advancements in lab equipment too will see a boost. Pharma labs will have to be at the cutting edge of science and technology to be more efficient, improve time-to-market and reduce costs. As a result, the demand for sophisticated equipment and instruments to aid and accelerate the process of drug discovery, development, analysis and modelling of the compounds will continue to grow. Adding to the industry’s woes, packaging and freight costs have also increased manifold. The show, along with its knowledge forum, aimed at finding solutions for these industry issues.
Speaking at the success of PharmaLytica 2021, Mr Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, Informa Markets in India, said, “We are delighted with our return to physical shows once again, commencing with PharmaLytica, at a time when the Pharma industry is facing a massive transformation. The industry support and encouragement that we have received for putting up this show now creates added morale and determination to strongly bring back face-to-face shows in the pharma and other sectors. The Pharma industry is projected to reach $65 bn by 2024 and $120 bn by 2030. This year, PharmaLytica, in its Hybrid format, focused on the lab and analytical equipment, pharma packaging solutions and pharma machinery subsectors. With future labs coming into place, the industry anticipates a boom in the pharma lab equipment market in the coming years.”
