Project Title
Project Description
The proposed project envisages setting up of a Medical Herbs extraction unit, which will produce finished products in the form of powder, oil, paste or aqueous solutions from extracted herbs. This project is suggested considering the availability of wide range of natural herbs in Gujarat.
Product Application
Medicinal herbs are widely used as diet supplements and treating illness like valerian. The extract of natural herbs can be used in various formulations like Ayurvedic medicines, natural flavoring agents, cosmetic ingredients and as natural ingredients in allopathic medicines.
Market & Growth Drivers
The global herbal market is estimated at US 60 billion dollars. China enjoys the lead, contributing 30% to the world market. The growth rate for herbal market is estimated to be around 7% - 15% annually.
The market value of pharmaceuticals derived from plants used in traditional medicines exceeds USD Herbal drugs are used in cardio vascular (27%), respiratory (15.3%), digestive (14.4%), hypnotics and sedatives (9.3%), miscellaneous (12%).
The Indian annual production of herbal drugs is estimated around INR 1000 million, while the medicinal plant value is about INR 50.0 billion and the anticipated export is around INR 5500 million.
Considering the rich assorted and varied botanical resources available in the country, the exported value is not impressive. The Indian market has 1650 herbal formulation involving 540 major plant There are medicinal plants exported from India in four forms: As dried plants or plant parts. e.g. liquorice roots, Senna leaves, Vinca Rosea (Catharanthus As extracts e.g. Sag of Opium poppy.
As isolated and purified active ingredients/intermediates e.g. Gymnema powder, Atropise sulphate, menthal crystals, Calcium sennoside. As ayurvedic, Unani, Siddh, and homeopathic formulations e.g. Over the counter (OTC) drugs, and range of proprietary formulations. This also includes range of herbal cosmetic Growth Drivers
Increasing awareness about adverse effects of synthetic drugs, such as steroids, anti-biotic, pain killers, etc has boosted up the demand for medicinal herbs in domestic and export Herbal drugs have no adverse effects and are safe to use.
Herbal extracts and powders are comparatively cheaper than synthetic drugs and The herbal medicine will act as an alternate for the class who cannot afford the allopathic drugs with the new product patent regime act and under WTO provisions.
India is seen as a reservoir of medicinal herbs and their uses by western countries.
Why Gujarat?
The State has several medicinal plants growing in different regions. State enjoys presence of around 37 traders / manufacturer of the herbal plants. This is primarily due to favorable climatic conditions, which provide a suitable environment for the growth of these plants. Particulars about some of the important medicinal plants that are commercially cultivated and have potential for development are List of Medicinal Plants available in Gujarat
Common name
Botanical name
There is availability of required industrial and basic infrastructure to carry out herbal processing and developing products thereof, whether domestic or export oriented.
There are many processes patented through out the world for commercial extraction of plant ingredients. Basically there are two methods of medicinal herbs extraction: The most successful commercial method for plant extracts is Super Critical Carbon dioxide extraction (liquid Carbon dioxide extraction) process which is very capital intensive.
The other is a combination of percolation and solvent extraction method, using suitable organic solvents, where medicinal plants / seeds are first thoroughly washed and inspected for removing unwanted impurities. The materials are subjected to boiling for decoction followed by percolation by solvents.
Further the material is crushed to fine mass, homogenized and converted into the paste form, prior to extraction of medicinal herbs.
Essential oils are commonly extracted by steam distillation. The basic still design is shown in the figure. Steam is piped from a boiler into the bottom of the still vessel which contains the plant material.
The volatile oils in the plant material are released and carried upwards with the steam and pass from the top of the still vessel through a condenser. Cold water flows continuously through a system of internal tubing in the condenser, cooling the steam/oil mix to a liquid. The water and oil flow into a separator (Florentine flask) where the oil, generally having a specific gravity less than water, floats the surface and is collected. The still design, capacity, water purity levels and flow rates, operating temperatures and length of distillation are important aspects that can affect the composition and quality of the oil. Technical assistance to optimize extraction efficiency is necessary. Other products used in the flavors and fragrance industry can be extracted from plants using a solvent extraction system. A high degree of technical expertise and significant capital investment are needed to set up Drying
To dry large quantities of crop effectively, a drying shed equipped with a forced-air drier or a freeze drier will be necessary. Volumes, drying temperature, length of drying and drying technique play an important role in the quality of the end product.
Specialist advice will be required to recommend appropriate equipment and methods, to optimise drying efficiency and minimise loss of critical plant Packaging
The type of packaging and how to meet consumer demand and market specifications requires excellent communication with the market. Specialist advice may Storage
Generally herb products and essential oils should be stored in a cool, dry place away from sunlight and protected from insect infestation. Essential oils should be bottled in glass or nonreactive metal containers. A cool store or freezer may be necessary to store plant material before processing.
Detailed requirements should be obtained from the relevant authorities before setting up facilities.
Raw Material
As indicated previously there are several medicinal herbs available in Gujarat, both cultivated and naturally growing. Gujarat Forest corporation is collecting several herbs from the forests of Gujarat.
Apart from this there are several traders who are collecting these herbs from tribals as exchange for supplying their daily necessities. As per trade estimate Gujarat is having total herbal market of 50,000 MT to 70,000 MT and against this processing is done only for 25000 to 30, 000 MT per annum. There is sufficient availability of required herbs for the proposed unit as the capacity suggested is only 5000 MT per annum and which is much lower than the herbs quantity available in Gujarat.
Suggested Plant Capacity & Project Cost
Capacity - 5000 MT of input for herbal extracts and mix of herbal extracts.
Capital cost is estimated to be INR 90 million or USD 2 million.
