Ranbaxy had entered the Japanese market in the year 2002 through a strategic alliance with Nippon Chemiphar, a mid sized research pharmaceutical company.

In July 2005, the JV between the two companies had introduced its first co-developed product Vogseal O.2mg and 0.3mg tablets for the treatment of diabetes.

Last year, Ranbaxy had also increased its equity stake in Nihon Pharmaceutical, making it a 50:50 joint venture between the company and Nippon Chemiphar.
