Pharmacology / Pharmacogenomics / Drug Discovery and Design and similar stuff have the potential to keep growing *always*... Just becoz of the simple reason that diseases keep growing too, in one form or the other... there is no end to it...

And this field is comparatively new to India, when compared to the outside world... but its on a fast track in India, with many companies offering state-of-the-art drugs, at cheaper prices... And Biological Research in india is doing good too....

So this is in fact a very good field to work in and make it a career.... Needs hard work, lot of thinking, and reasoning, and u will have a successful career...

Good luck to all the people who wud like to make biological research their career... its the most rewarding in terms of satisfaction, work pleasure, and most importantly, joy and fun in serving mankind.....

It is not Joy and fun, scientist like me are working day and night to produce a result but the credit is going to foreign countries, because India has lot of resourse but the patent is in USA hand, for example neem (Vempu)is orginated in India but it was patent by USA if you want to do any research in Neem you have to get permission from USA now pasumathi, and turmeric (Mangel) the same situation, so we have to work hard and make patent all of our natural resouses, it is not fun and joy

The Indian biotechnology sector is poised for an exponential growth and would garner a global market share of 10 per cent in the next five years from the present one per cent.

"Indian biotechnology is currently nascent and accounts for a mere one per cent of the global biotechnology market. It is poised for an exponential growth over the next five years with an expected global market share of 10 per cent," P K Mukherjee, director, Small Industries Services Institute, said addressing the national convention of biotechnology, in Mumbai.

He said the consumption of biotech products in India is estimated to grow ten-fold to $1.5 billion by 2007 and to $4.5 billion by 2010.

The market for modern biotechnology products and services in India is estimated to be about $150 million for 2002, of which about 40 per cent are estimated to be export revenues.

The government's budgetary allocation to biotechnology has risen to $500 million in 2002-03 from $300 million in 1997-98, Mukherjee said, adding the national budget for 2002 provides for 150 per cent tax deduction for R&D spending on biotechnology.

India enjoys certain advantages such as low operational costs, low-cost technologies, skilled human resource base and large network of research laboratories, he said.

Several state governments such as Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka have taken proactive initiatives in promoting biotechnology policies with a focus on setting up biotech parks, incubators, centre of biotech excellence and providing fiscal incentives to the investors.
