Company background

Sun Pharmaceutical is India's largest drugmaker. It sells mainly generic drugs, an area in which Indian companies do well, in more than 150 countries, including the U.S. It has over 20 production bases around the world and supplies more than 1,000 products. It has succeeded in expanding its business globally, given that domestic sales account for only about 30% of its group sales. It has built a solid business base especially in the U.S., generating more around 50% of sales in that market.

The company was founded in 1983 by Dilip Shanghvi, who serves as managing director. It brought online its first active pharmaceutical ingredients factory in the western Indian state of Gujarat in 1995. It has been on a growth path recently on the back of the global expansion of India's generic drug business. Shanghvi is known for his aggressive merger and acquisition strategy and has expanded his company through buyouts including overseas companies. In 2014, it bought Ranbaxy Laboratories, an Indian drugmaker, which cemented its place at the top of India's pharmaceutical industry.

Shanghvi and other founding family members and affiliate companies own more than 60% of shares in Sun Pharmaceutical. Shanghvi is one of India's richest men, and he and his family are actively investing in India.
