Generic Medicines

Lupin is leading global manufacturer of generic medicines with a product footprint in more than 100 countries. We are the segment leader in a number of therapy areas including anti-TB, diabetes, cardiovascular, respiratory and ophthalmic, across different geographies.

Key Markets


Lupin’s branded generic business is ranked #6 in the Indian Pharmaceutical Market (IPM). Our top five therapies are cardiovascular, diabetes, respiratory, anti-infective and gastrointestinal. We also have a significant presence in CNS, gynaecology, pain management and vitamin-mineral supplements, among others. In the past, we have also forayed into urology, dermatology and paediatric respiratory therapy in India.


Lupin entered the U.S. generic pharmaceutical market in 2003 with ANDA approval for Cefuroxime Axetil Tablets. We have since received more than 250 FDA approvals and market a total of 180 generic products. This has solidified us as one of the fastest-growing pharmaceutical companies in the U.S. Our consistent track record of growth on the generic side is a result of a robust pipeline, strong customer relationships, and flawless execution.

We are vertically integrated, from process development of the API to the submission of dossiers for finished dosages. This provides control over the supply chain and the ability to offer quality products at the right time—and the right price. Because our manufacturing is also integrated, we are able to closely monitor the integrity of our generic products, a competitive advantage in an industry where customer trust and safety are non-negotiable.

Overall, we are one of the fastest-growing pharmaceutical companies in the US. Our consistent track record of growth on the generics side is the result of a robust pipeline, strong customer relationships, and flawless execution.

Complex Generics

Our strong focus toward research and innovation has helped build Lupin’s complex generics portfolio. Over the past few years, we have made significant inroads in this space and launched products such as Filgrastim, Pegfilgrastim, Etanercept and Albuterol, among others, in different geographies around the world.

We have made tremendous progress in our injectables portfolio, and are focused on four areas — iron products, peptides, depot injectables and partnered products. In the US, our complex generics will be supported by the commercial strength we have on the institutional front.

Albuterol, our key rescue inhalation product, has already garnered significant market share in the US. We are well advanced in our journey to bring other key inhalation offerings such as Perforomist and Brovana to the US, and Fostair to Europe.

Our robust pipeline of complex injectables, inhalation products and biosimilars will continue to fuel our growth, and strengthen our position in this segment.
