The market was further driven by COVID-19 pandemic and the importance of making India as a hub for conducting clinical trials. The large number of patients also highlights the growing demand for treatments and immunizations. Currently, 288 medicines and 106 vaccines are in various stages of development, with almost 7.0% of therapeutics in Phase IV, 21.0% in Phase III, and 43.0%, 13.0%, and respectively, Phase II and Phase I.

These rules have brought India's regulatory framework on par with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) norms and now India is among the top choices for global clinical trials. India's clinical trials market is expected to reach $3.15 billion by 2025 with a compounded annual growth rate of 8.7%.

A new set of rules in place since 2019 is beginning to make India an attractive destination for big pharma to conduct clinical trials in India.
