After the birth of Bangladesh, a few small scale manufacturers managed to survive and grow the local drug market, but with high dependency on imports & MNCs. A turning point for the local industry appeared when renowned experts of the country formulated and adopted the first National Drug Policy. Within the next 30 years, the country witnessed a phenomenal growth of the pharmaceutical industry. Today our medicines are exported to 144 countries. Nearly 97 percent of the market demand is now met by local products & revenue earned from the pharmaceutical sector accounts for 3% of GDP.
Though we have reached near self-sufficiency in pharmaceuticals in terms of quantities, as a country our next level goal is to reach the quality standards equivalent to that of the strictly regulated first world countries. At the same time, as Bangladesh becomes a middle income country, we also need to prepare as an industry to graduate into an advanced R&D based one.
And this is where DBL conglomerate comes in.
Having established a number of businesses in textile, apparels, textile printing, garment accessories, packaging, ceramic tiles, dredging, ICT and telecommunication sectors with enviable success, particularly driven by DBL’s passion for the most advanced, sustainable and precise technologies, the group decided to enter into the pharmaceutical sector under its diversification plan.
