Sulfamethazine is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial drug that belongs to the family of sulfa drugs and is a sulfonamide widely employed in the treatment of bacterial diseases such as bronchitis, prostatitis, and several other urinary tract infections.

The market activities of sulfamethazine were reliant on the performance of pharmaceutical industries in the first and second quarters of 2023. In India, the government promoted the import of several formulations to boost production activities. This also helped in strengthening the supply chains with international players after a period of stagnancy due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The rates of imports were also affected by the heavy dependence of India’s pharmaceutical sector on the raw material trade with China. The boom in the pharmaceutical sector in the first and second quarters was based on the expensive raw materials imported from the neighboring countries, and thus, the price trend of sulfamethazine inclined.

Analyst Insight

According to procurement resources, Sulfamethazine price is estimated to depict a fluctuating pattern as the dependence of India’s pharmaceutical sector on the import of expensive raw materials will prove to be a challenge in the upcoming months.
