The generic injectables industry has been characterised by the presence of high entry barriers in the form of strict quality control regulations and a relatively complex manufacturing process. This has been the primary reason for the low competition in the industry, particularly in the US which is the largest market for generic injectables. However, the governments of various countries are supporting the manufacture of these drugs in the form of easy approvals and less stringent manufacturing procedures. These regulatory changes, coupled with the high profitability in the market, have encouraged a large number of pharmaceutical giants to enter it. Another major factor is the rising cases of chronic health problems on account of sedentary lifestyles and various environmental factors. This has created a huge demand for affordable pharmaceutical products. As a result of these factors, the global generic injectables market is projected to witness a strong growth over the next five years, reaching a value of US$ 43 Billion by 2022.
