FY 2012/2013 Research Topic: C-31
Empirical Analysis of Competition and Price Determination in the Indian Pharmaceutical Market


India is currently designing major revisions in its policies pertaining to the patent protection and pricing of pharmaceuticals. In order to assess the potential impact of these changes, it is necessary to understand how the domestic pharmaceutical market functions. In this project, we evaluate the welfare impact of the aforementioned policies by empirically examining inter-firm competition and pricing in individual drug markets.
