Customized knowledge services company Boston Analytics today released its new report examining the vast economic opportunities in the pharmaceutical market in India. Titled "An Introduction to the Indian Pharmaceutical Industry," the report examines the elements that will lead to a 13.5 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in domestic production and sales of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) and generic drugs by 2010 as well as the booming Indian pharmaceutical outsourcing market that is expected to see a 37.5 percent CAGR in that same time span.    

"In the last few years, a lot of attention has been paid to the rapid growth of the software and manufacturing sectors in India.
