Rifampicin Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

Rifampicin is an antibiotic drug that is extensively used to aid TB (Tuberculosis). The Rifampicin prices showed a rapid rise over the discussed period of H1 2023. The prices had been rising for most pharmaceutical drugs since the onset of Covid 19 pandemic as globally, the demands surged overnight, but the disrupted supply chains made the transportation and procurement processes difficult. Also, the manufacturing countries restricted the supplies to ensure domestic medicine security first. But as the restrictions are over now in most parts of the world, the prices were expected to go back to normal; however, the opposite is happening. The prices have doubled compared to the pre-pandemic levels.

The biggest driver behind the price surge is the rise in raw material API costs. As India and China account for more than 70% of global generic drug manufacturing, a price surge in this region had an impact on global Rifampicin prices. India is the key manufacturer but is almost completely dependent on Rifampicin’s active pharmaceutical ingredients in China. As China raised the API prices, the Rifampicin prices also rose.
