AYUSH and Alternative Medicine Industry in India: Industry Outlook

AYUSH and alternative medicine industry in India is expected to register a CAGR of 8.6% during the forecast period.

In the context of COVID-19, the market for alternative medicines, like Ayurveda, has been increasing due to the increasing demand for various ayurvedic products to boost immunity. As per a report published in August 2020, since March, the demand for honey has gone up 45%, chyawanprash by 85%, and turmeric by 40% in ayurvedic stores. The interest in these products has mostly been fueled by the recommendations from the Ministry of AYUSH to fight COVID-19.

The system of alternative medicines in India consists of Ayurveda, yoga, naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, and homeopathy (AYUSH). Due to the abundance of ancient scientific knowledge, India is considered the hub for alternative medicines, like Unani, Ayurveda, Siddha, and homeopathy. The market currently is experiencing a surge in demand for AYUSH and alternative medicines in India, owing to the growing awareness about the effectiveness and efficacy of traditional systems of medicine, coupled with increasing initiatives by the government to support these systems and rising R&D. In September 2020, the Parliament of India passed two bills to improve access to quality and affordable medical education by ensuring the availability of adequate and high-quality homeopathy and other AYUSH medicines across the country.

Additionally, in August 2020, the Gujarat health department reported that they had distributed the homeopathic drug Arsenicum Album-30, as prophylaxis treatment to approximately 3.48 crore people, which is more than half of the Gujrat’s population since March 2020, after the COVID-19 outbreak. These medicines are cost-effective as compared to other synthetic products. At present, India is also one of the top exporters of alternative medicines in the world. Major export destination includes the United States and European countries, like Germany and France. The government of India is continuously supporting the industry with investments in scientific research in AYUSH, building the necessary infrastructure and regulatory framework to regulate this system of medicine. However, one of the major factors hindering the growth of the Indian AYUSH and alternative medicine market is the general perception of the treatment as a secondary source of medication.
