About Generic Drugs
A generic drug is a duplicate of brand-name drugs and has the same dosage form, active ingredient(s), potency, route of administration, quality, and intended use as that of branded drugs. Generic drugs enter the market once the patent protection of the original developer expires. Generally, the cost of generic drugs is 50-70 percent lower than that of their brand-name counterparts, while meeting the very same standards of safety, quality, and efficacy as the innovator drugs. Generic drugs help the manufacturer by eliminating the need to develop and market a new drug. As the patent approaches expiration, manufacturers can apply to the FDA for approval to manufacture and sell generic versions of the drug. Generic drugs are equal to and within the bioequivalence range of branded drugs.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Generic Drugs market in Japan to grow at a CAGR of 8.16 percent over the period 2014-2019.
