Reports say that by 2020, India is likely to be among the top three pharmaceutical markets by incremental growth and sixth largest market globally in absolute size. Reputation is defined as a measure of the effectiveness of transmitted belief about attitudes showcasing Respect – and our report measures the consumer Respect for a brand and also its transmission by measuring the media quotient. Given the importance of this sector for the economy and to the public, brands should concentrate on building and maintaining their Reputation to stay ahead in the changing world,” said Pooja Kaura, Chief Spokesperson for India’s Most Reputed Brands.
