Mylan has a vast manufacturing platform in India which comprises active pharmaceutical ingredient (API), oral solid dose (OSD) and injectables facilities that serve a number of markets around the world and produce medicines in a wide range of therapeutic areas.

Seventeen of Mylan’s facilities in India, including all of its API facilities, are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Many of these sites also are approved and regularly inspected by other regulatory authorities, including Australia's Therapeutic Goods Administration, the U.K.’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency and the World Health Organization.

R&D Network

Mylan’s globally integrated R&D platform helps expand our product portfolio to satisfy unmet medical needs. We have < 3000 scientific affairs workforce who work collaboratively across multiple R&D centers around the world. About half of our scientific affairs workforce is based in India.

Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients

Mylan is one of the world's largest API manufacturers as measured by the number of drug master files on record with regulatory agencies. Mylan uses the APIs it develops to supply its internal network and to sell to third parties. The company operates all nine of its API facilities in India and offers a broad portfolio and pipeline of more than 250 APIs in a variety of therapeutic categories, from antibacterials to antifungals. Mylan has an API capacity of >4800 kiloliters.


Responsible wastewater treatment is a key topic for our industry and Mylan is committed to leading by example. The production requirements of our operations – coupled with local regulations and infrastructure – guide the type of water and wastewater management applied. In India, we are a leader in zero liquid discharge (ZLD) systems. ZLD systems are wastewater treatment plants that eliminate effluent discharge into the environment. Instead, all wastewater is treated and repurposed back into non-potable applications in our facilities, reducing water usage and significantly reducing environmental impact.
