Medicinal Plants


As per available reports about 43 relevant Journals, 38 Conferences  are presently dedicated exclusively to Medicinal plants  and about 208 articles are being published on Medicinal plants.

Medicinal plants have the ability to synthesize a wide variety of chemical compounds that are used to perform important biological functions, and to defend against attack from predators such as insects, fungi and herbivorous mammals. They have been identified and used throughout human history. At least 12,000 such compounds have been isolated so far. Chemical compounds in plants mediate their effects on the human body through processes identical to those already well understood for the chemical compounds in conventional drugs; thus herbal medicines do not differ greatly from conventional drugs in terms of how they work. This enables herbal medicines to be as effective as conventional medicines, but also gives them the same potential to cause harmful side effects. Drugs from natural sources, Biochemistry, Protein structure prediction, New strategies in identification & development of drug moieties are the wings included in  Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry .

Scope and Importance:

Main scientific interests of the Society for Medicinal Plant and Natural Product Research and its members are in the area of horticulture, pharmacognosy, phytochemistry, pharmacology, phytotherapy, basic research and related fields and include Horticulture of Medicinal Plants involving breeding and cultivation of medicinal plants and genetic diversity of medicinal plants, Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry involving identification and authentication of plant material, chemistry of plant constituents and natural compounds, development of improved and new analytical methods, search for new biologically active natural compounds.

Ethnobotany (the study of traditional human uses of plants) is recognized as an effective way to discover future medicines. In 2001, researchers identified 122 compounds used in modern medicine which were derived from "ethnomedical" plant sources; 80% of these have had an ethnomedical use identical or related to the current use of the active elements of the plant. Many of the pharmaceuticals currently available to physicians have a long history of use as herbal remedies, including aspirin, digitalis, quinine, and opium. The use of herbs to treat disease is almost universal among non-industrialized societies, and is often more affordable than purchasing expensive modern pharmaceuticals.

Market Analysis:

The global market for Medicinal plants  totaled $23.9 billion in 2013. This market is expected to grow to $25.3 billion in 2014 and $35.5 billion in 2019, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.8%. Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2013, estimates for 2014, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2019.
