AstraZeneca India was established in 1979. It is headquartered in Bengaluru, Karnataka.

In 2003, the company launched an Oncology product, Arimidex, for the management of breast cancer.

However, the same year, the company closed the API production unit in Yelahanka, Bangalore. In FY 2017, APIL aligned its portfolio to AstraZeneca's global therapeutic strategic focus in core areas of Cardio-Metabolism, Oncology and Respiratory. As a part of this process, certain brands were divested in the areas of Antibiotics, Local Anaesthesia, Maternal Health Care and others. In October 2019, the company launched Lynparza, which later got the approval to be the first-line treatment of Ovarian Cancer and also for the treatment of metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer with HRR mutations.
