Abstract [en]

The rise of antibiotic resistance and the difficulty in the procurement of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) used in the manufacturing reduce the availability of antibiotics in Sweden. The main objective of the study is to explore the APIs market in India and analyze the major suppliers to support the stable production of antibiotics which suffer from shortage in the Swedish market.

 

This research is concerned with the API supply stage concerning the rest of the antibiotic supply chain. It includes the structure of the local industries and the strategies adopted by the leading players. In this regard, the relevant literature on pharmaceutical supply chains and strategy and on other initiatives to combat antibiotic resistance are referred with the motive to establish a theoretical base for the practical findings. 

 

The interviews with the supply manager of major API suppliers have conducted in India and various reports on APIs suppliers are studied. The challenges in the supply and export of APIs are explained in the interviews. The current players and government initiatives to promote the export of APIs help to understand both internal and external problems related to the export of APIs.  

 

The thesis is concluded with the recommendations of Indian APIs producers that can be considered by the pharmaceutical companies producing antibiotics to establish a reliable and robust supply chain between them.
