It is very important to understand what exactly is Glucosamine in order to proceed further. So here is all about glucosamine.
What is Glucosamine?
Glucosamine sulfate (or Glucosamine for short) is a naturally occurring sugar present in and around the fluid, cushioning tissues of joints. In addition, this substance can also be found in the hard shells of shellfish.
Glucosamine sulphate and glucosamine hydrochloride are nutritional supplements. Animal studies have found that glucosamine can both delay the breakdown of and repair damaged cartilage. The results for the use of glucosamine for osteoarthritis are mixed and the size of the effect is modest.
Glucosamine is mainly used to treat diseases related to bones and joints such as:
- Osteoarthritis: Patients with osteoarthritis of the hip, spine, or knee can take Glucosamine sulfate to help relieve pain.
- Rheumatoid Arthritis: Initial studies have shown that, in rheumatoid arthritis patients, the analgesic effect of oral glucosamine hydrochloride is higher than that of placebo. However, the inflammation and the number of painful swollen joints did not improve.
- Besides, some other diseases some people may also be prescribed to use Glucosamine such as:
- Interstitial cystitis.

ACTIVE PHARMACEUTICAL INGREDIENTS (APIs)
Tyche industries is into manufacturing API’s. Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) is the biologically active component of a drug product (tablet, capsule, cream, injectable) that produces the intended effects.
Any drug is made up of two elements one is known as API, and the other is Excipients which are referred to as support the API. Therefore API is a very integral part to manufacture drugs.
Company manufactures following Api’s currently.
Pharmaceutical intermediates are chemicals compounds widely used in manufacturing various types of drug in bulk quantity also used for research and development by Pharmaceutical and biopharma companies.
Company manufactures following Intermediates currently.
Chirality is a key factor in the safety and efficacy of many drug products and thus the production of single enantiomers of drug intermediates has become increasingly important in the pharmaceutical industry. Chiral intermediates and fine chemicals are in high demand for the bulk preparation of drug substances and agricultural products. There has been an increasing awareness of the enormous potential of the use of microorganisms and microorganism-derived enzymes for the transformation of synthetic chemicals with high chemo-, regio- and enantio selectivities.

Nutraceuticals might be defined as substances that have physiological benefits or provide protection against chronic diseases. Nutraceuticals may be used to improve health, delay the aging process, prevent chronic diseases, increase life expectancy, or support the structure or function of the body.

The global pharmaceutical industry is likely to grow at a CAGR of 19.2% and the pharmaceuticals industry is estimated to reach $3201.02 billion in CY2026. The larger section of the global demography is ageing, which makes them prone to chronic illnesses, such as rheumatoid arthritis, hypertension, diabetes, and cancer. Over the next five years, the industry is expecting to launch a total of 300 new medications, with a bias toward specialised, niche, and orphan drugs. This is likely to generate $196 billion in additional expenditure, that will counterbalance the brand spending reductions of $188 billion, owing to loss of exclusivity.
The Indian pharmaceutical industry is the 3rd largest pharmaceutical manufacturing country, in terms of volume. The nation is also the largest supplier of generic pharmaceuticals in the world, accounting for 20% of worldwide supply. The Indian pharmaceutical market is now valued at $41.7 billion and by 2024, it is likely to be worth $65 billion. Investment (as % of sales) in research & development by Indian pharma companies increased from 5.3 per cent in FY12 to 8.5 per cent in FY18. In 2017, Indian pharmaceutical sector witnessed 46 merger & acquisition (M&A) deals worth US$ 1.47 billion. The exports of Indian pharmaceutical industry to the US will get a boost, as branded drugs worth US$ 55 billion will become off-patent during 2017-2020.
Going forward, better growth in domestic sales would also depend on the ability of companies to align their product portfolio towards chronic therapies for diseases such as such as cardiovascular, anti- diabetes, anti-depressants and anti-cancers that are on the rise. The Indian government has taken many steps to reduce costs and bring down healthcare expenses. Speedy introduction of generic drugs into the market has remained in focus and is expected to benefit the Indian pharmaceutical companies. In addition, the thrust on rural health programmes, lifesaving drugs and preventive vaccines also augurs well for the pharmaceutical companies.
