Keeping Up with Trends
Zuvius Lifescience has been keeping up with the changes in the industry. It makes sure to be abreast with the latest trends not only domestically, but also at the global platform. With the same vision, the experts at Zuvius attend international conferences and industry events regularly, to have a bigger and better view of the industry.
The brand also has a dedicated team of experts who are focused on forecasting market trends and formulating innovative solutions. Being actively invested with dedicated efforts in research and technology of oncology is the key to the brand’s strategy of keeping itself at par with the tides of time.
Overcoming the Hurdles
Zuvius Lifesciences believes that the Indian Pharmaceutical Industry is one of the most developed and fastest-growing markets in the global scenario. India, the pharmacy of the world, produces about 20 % of the world’s drugs. However, the nation still has some obstacles to overcome.
The first and most pressing challenge in the industry today is of access and availability of affordable drugs in the remote interiors of the country. The brand is ready to aid the government in building high-facility hospitals in rural areas. Zuvius team believes that it would drastically change the statistics of cancer diseases in the country. The country has medicines but lacks the proper resources to ensure that the medicines reach the ones in need. Zuvius aims to overcome the challenge with its broad range of anticancer drugs and strongly believes that ‘the disease doesn’t differentiate between rich & poor and so shouldn’t care.’
Difficulty in exporting medicines to countries with high demand is the second hurdle the brand has to hop through in the industry. With so many rules and regulations from both the countries, especially for the pharma sector, exporting often becomes expensive and complex. The brand believes that the challenge is addressed by the Indian Government as it is working very hard to appraise the Indian pharma standards. Extensive efforts are taken so that medicines can be easily supplied seamlessly across the globe, thereby opening new doors of possibility for the pharmaceutical industry.
Proper research and development is the third and most important challenge. Over the years, the companies have accepted and created a dire need for better research component. Though the Indian Pharma Industry is growing at a rapid pace, the profits generated are not enough to support the expensive costs of research, as compared to its counterparts in other countries such as the US. Zuvius believes that India needs friendly government policies that would encourage research and studies in the field of pharma.
Having mentioned the government’s role that is required to transform the industry, the most essential part is the government’s reforms. Regulatory reforms in India and abroad tend to be different, creating a need for the Indian government to pace up.
Regulatory Reforms in India and Abroad
After coming a long way in terms of development, India is yet to walk a long road. The nation is in need of better regulatory reforms to promote drug research and development. Compared to the economically developed countries that have academic researchers, India too has a large number of such experts. These experts are indeed keen on working on cancer research, creating a dire need for strengthening the academia-industry interaction supported by the Government.
The brand believes that there is an urgency to introduce reforms to ease the difficulties in conducting domestic clinical trials along with better solutions to tackle trial approval delays.
Beating the Competition
Keeping the brand on edge, competition is the biggest motivating factor for any organisation to grow and be inspired. Competition is a well of contemporary wisdom and it stirs Zuvius to strive harder. The spirited race keeps the brand informed and alert of the latest trends and tides. Viewing competition in this light, Zuvius believes competition helps relevancy to come automatically without much conscious effort.

Advancing Via Technology
Advancement of technology has transformed the business approach over the years and has become a key differentiator for companies. Be it in terms of research and manufacturing or selling and procuring, technology has facilitated every spectrum of the business chain. It has helped brands to leverage opportunities as it has simplified things.
“From customer-centric technology relating to the health care providers, to manufacturing and R&D-focused technologies that can help enhance productivity and compliance, one can see visible benefits of technology in the areas of secured collaborative research, Quality by Design (QBD), Product lifecycle management (PLM), Modelling and simulation in process development analytics and visualizations,” quoted Nimish

The seasoned leader’s astute guidance and supervision lead the team to achieve the top position as he works in sync with the myriad problems encountered by a cancer patient and brings out the best solutions.
Witnessing the Transformation
Pharma industry has witnessed a tectonic transformation in the past decades. The presence of Indian Pharma companies in the international market has increased massively leading to increased Indian formulation and bulk drug exports.
“With research, safety and long-term efficiency of medicines being the prime focus, the industry over the years has adopted the technology. It has played a pivotal role in catapulting the pharmaceutical sector in terms of research, manufacture and reach. With so many brilliant minds of doctors, scientists and academics leading this industry, the transformations are sure for good,” said Nimish
He further added, “We also see a great change today in-patient care, which was hardly available earlier. Neutraceuticals is again the next segment which has seen a major turnaround with people getting more and more health-conscious.”

He further shared “We are in sync with the mission we have set to achieve that is becoming a globally renowned and trusted brand as the right players drive the different branches of the company. We are in the process of building an ecosystem for the patients suffering from Cancer.”
With the novel reforms by the government to uplift the bed of Pharmaceuticals and Life-science industry, Zuvius believes that there is scope for more powerful regulatory reforms that would strengthen the position of Indian Pharma in the global forum.
Government has already initated a Public Private Partnership model for building cancer healthcare centre across India, which will really bring a revolutionary change in the society.
“We expect better healthcare centres cropping up in the villages and remote areas where the health problems mostly go undetected for a lack of facility and finances. Internationally, the industry has a huge scope to expand in China, Japan, and American countries. Hence, reformed trade laws with these countries to levy the rules can help revolutionise the industry,” quoted Nimish
