An active ingredient (AI) is the substance in a pharmaceutical drug or a pesticide that is biologically active. The similar terms active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and bulk active are also used in medicine, and the term active substance may be used for pesticide formulations. Some medications and pesticide products may contain more than one active ingredient. A dosage form: the API, which is the drug itself; and an excipient, which is the substance of the tablet, or the liquid the API is suspended in, or other material that is pharmaceutically inert. Drugs are chosen primarily for their active ingredients. The Indian pharmaceutical industry also needs to take advantage of the recent advances in biotechnology and information technology. The future of the industry will be determined by how well it markets its products to several regions and distributes risks, its forward and backward integration capabilities, its R&D, its consolidation through mergers and acquisitions, co-marketing and licensing agreements.
Uses and Applications
API like Cephalexin is used to treat a number of infections including: otitis media, streptococcal pharyngitis, bone and joint infections, pneumonia, cellulitis, and urinary tract infections.

Amoxicillin is used in the treatment of a number of infections, including acute otitis media, Streptococcal pharyngitis, pneumonia, skin infections, urinary-tract infections, Salmonella, lyme disease, and chlamydia infections. It is also used to prevent bacterial endocarditis in high-risk people who are having dental work done, to prevent strep pneumococus infections in those without spleens, and for both the prevention and the treatment of anthrax. Ibuprofen is used primarily for fever, pain, dysmenorrhea and inflammatory diseases such asrheumatoid arthritis. It is also used for pericarditis and patent ductus arteriosus.
The demand for pharmaceutical products in India is significant and is driven by low drug penetration, rising middle-class & disposable income, increased government & private spending on healthcare infrastructure, increasing medical insurance penetration etc. India based pharmaceutical companies are not only catering to the domestic market and fulfilling the countryâ€™s demands, they are also exporting to around 220 countries. They are exporting high quality, low cost drugs to countries such as the US, Kenya, Malaysia, Nigeria, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Ukraine, Vietnam, and more. The Indian pharmaceutical industry is the fourth largest in the world in terms of volume of output and thirteenth in domestic demand. However, the Indian industry, valued at USD 17 bn in represented just over 1% of the global pharmaceutical industry (USD 1700 bn) in value terms. The domestic market is estimated at Rs 680 bn.
