Abstract: In Part I, Chapter 1 gives a brief introduction about the world pharmaceutical. Chapter 2 builds a theoretical model to study the pricing behaviour of breakthrough drugs, a??me-tooa?? drugs and generic drugs in developed and developing countries. Part II deals with the Indian pharmaceutical industry. Chapter 3 gives an overview of the Indian pharmaceutical. Chapter 4 studies the impact of the strict patent regime on the patenting activity of Indian pharmaceutical firms and finds that patenting activity of these firms has increased after the signing of the TRIPs. The study is conducted for 65 pharmaceutical firms using count panel data models. Chapter 5 examines the impact of foreign patent rights on the trade pattern of pharmaceutical firms in India. The study for the relationship between technology and trade is carried out for 177 Indian pharmaceutical firms using dynamic panel data techniques. Finally, Chapter 6 ends the thesis with some concluding remarks and policy suggestions for the future.
