It stems from a need to maintain higher inventory for select key ingredients imported from China - Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) and Key Starting Materials (KSMs) that go into making of certain APIs. According to analysts and industry sources, the costs are up by around 10 per cent for the industry as compared to the pre-COVID days. This is after accounting for around 20 per cent increase in prices that Chinese suppliers have implemented, and not considering the impact of depreciation of the rupee, since it will be offset later through exports from India - with rupee falling from Rs 70 to Rs 76 to a dollar, which is close to 9 per cent. The exact impact of the cost increases is a function of the quantum and nature of imports from China and the amount of inventory. As against the usual inventory for up to two months, the trend now seems to be between three months and six months.
