“Growth in the Generic Drug Market Will be Critical in Cutting down Rising Healthcare Costs”
Generic drugs are expected to witness strong growth in both developed and emerging markets. Patent expiries of a number of blockbuster branded drugs and the huge cost savings that can be potentially achieved from the utilisation of generic drugs are expected to represent the key factors catalysing this growth.

A generic drug is a pharmaceutical product which is a bio-equivalent of the branded drug and is normally manufactured after the expiration of the patent rights of the branded one. Over the past few decades, the global market for generic drugs has evolved considerably and currently represents a global multi-billion dollar market.  The growth of the generic drug market has expanded primarily due to several factors. Owing to the low research and development requirements, the costs involved in developing and manufacturing a generic drug is significantly lower as compared to a branded drug. This allows generic drug manufacturers to price their products significantly lower compared to branded drugs.
