A generic drug is a pharmaceutical product that can be interchanged with the innovator product and is comparable with it in terms of dosage, intended use and efficacy. Generic drugs are manufactured without a license from the innovator company and are usually marketed after the patent expiry of the innovator drug. The approval process of a generic drug is less time consuming and involves significantly lower costs compared to their branded counterparts. Manufacturers of generic drugs do not require to spend significantly in research and development enabling them to price their products significantly lower than their branded counterparts.
Generics today represent a multibillion dollar industry. One of their biggest drivers is an increasing global pharmaceutical spending trend towards generics. Continuously increasing healthcare expenditures have pushed governments and third-party payers to seek ways to control their healthcare expenditures. This is catalyzing an increasing demand for generics versus their branded counterparts. Another major driver of this industry is the continued patent cliff that is providing growing pipeline opportunities for generic firms. Similarly, a growth in the overall global population and aging demographics is also proving to be beneficial for the overall healthcare sector including generic drug manufacturers. Healthcare reforms in the US and other developed markets coupled with strong growth in emerging market are some other important drivers for the industry.
