The healthcare industry is at the centre of a new world defined by the COVID-19 pandemic – be it healthcare delivery system that cares for those infected, while exposing themselves to the virus, or the drug manufacturing industry, which is racing towards finding a cure/vaccine for the disease.
The epicentre of the disease has shifted through 2020 and India may soon find itself on the top of the table.
The economic impact of COVID-19 on world economies, particularly India, can be a cause for concern. However, the pharmaceutical industry has maintained stable revenues in 2020 compared with similar periods last year.
In terms of performance, the major listed companies* had a flat revenue growth, both over Q1 of FY 20 and the immediately preceding quarter of Q4 FY 20.
The third edition of Health Check takes a closer look at:
- Opportunities for the pharma industry due to the ongoing pandemic
- Impact of COVID-19 on pharma and healthcare providers
- Government incentives available to the industry
- Summary of Grant Thornton’s International Business Report findings from the healthcare sector
