Abstract

Indian pharmaceutical industry is witnessing enormous challenges due to varying patent laws, increasing demand, and continuous pressure from the government to provide medicines at a lower price. To overcome these challenges, there is a need for a more robust supply chain (SC) which will help in information sharing and reduce overall cost. The chapter determines the key drivers of Indian pharmaceutical SC, and draws the attention of industry, stakeholders, and top management to emphasise on these drivers to enhance the performance and profitability of SC. An interpretive structural modelling-based approach has been employed to model the pharmaceutical SC key drivers. The 16 key parameters have been identified across all major dimensions such as SC, HR, & organizational, market, technology, and reverse logistics. Further fuzzy MICMAC analysis is done to categorize based on their driving and dependence power. The factors like collaborative relationship among SC partners, quality regulations, third party logistics, and end-to-end responsive SC are found to be more important enablers.
