Bangladesh Contract Logistics Market Trends

Pharmaceutical and healthcare spending is driving the market

One of the industries with the highest export potential is pharmaceuticals, which can provide 98% of domestic demand and have a domestic market of USD 3.5 billion. Several developed, developing, and least developed nations (LDCs) purchased USD 188.8 million worth of export in FY22. The vast majority of Bangladesh's raw material and chemical imports come from developing nations including China, India, Korea, Singapore, and Malaysia, and totaled roughly USD 1.050 billion last year. Pharmaceuticals and chemicals made up only 1.94% of all foreign direct investments, with the United Kingdom accounting for 40.6%, India for 7.1%, and the Netherlands for 5.7%. More foreign direct investment is required for improved technical transfer.

The export of pharmaceutical products is one of the main opportunities, and Bangladesh's pharmaceutical industry has long been planning for this. Around 20 to 22 businesses in the industry are investing a lot of money in R&D to increase exports. The local businesses are working very hard to produce raw materials at affordable pricing. Active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) have been successfully produced by numerous businesses for some goods. For a variety of products, Incepta can also create APIs.
