The pharmaceutical industry has always been the largest market for the fine chemicals industry.

Agrochemical intermediates represent the second largest category in the fine chemicals market.
Fine chemicals players with significant exposure to the generics segment are likely to face pressure on their profitability levels in the near future. However, the recent shift in focus toward biopharmaceutical products will expand the margin of this industry in coming years.
Outsourcing has become a key trend in this industry, fueled by the growing importance of biopharmaceutical and virtual pharma companies in low-cost destinations such as Asia. Outsourcing from biotech and pharmaceutical companies will strengthen the custom manufacturing industry in India and China.
