Why generic drugs?

Generic drugs refer to the drugs with a chemical make-up of a drug a like an existing branded drug. These medications are inexpensive and similar to branded drugs in power, and route of delivery, consistency, efficiency, and usage. These are subject to administration regulations in different nations, rather than associated with a particular company. These drugs are proven to be as safe and effective as their brand name formulation, which has already been marketed. While other features, such as color, form and flavoring that do not influence the health and efficacy of pharmaceutical products that vary from the original edition; generic versions are formulated with the same active ingredients as their advertised counterparts when operating in the same manner and quantity of the time.

Growth Factors

The low price of generic drugs as substitute to branded drugs is the supreme crucial factor in the growth of the global market for generic drugs. Generic drug firms do not have to experience high drug improvement costs and so cost is 85% less than branded drugs. The costs of research and development, as well as drug discovery, are not included in the case of generic drugs. A very small amount is to be invested in the collection of pre-marketing data for generic medicines. The companies rely on the clinical evidence provided by the business of the innovators for the health and effectiveness of the drug.

In addition, generic drug claimants do not need to repeat the animal and clinical (human) studies needed to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of brand name medicines. As a result, generic drugs, with similar active ingredients having the same strength, stability, purity, effectiveness and protection as branded drugs, are available at a lower price than branded drugs. Such advantages lead patients to opt for generics as alternatives to costly branded medications. Increasing number of patent expired branded drugs is another major factor expected to boost growth of the target market in the near future. Drug prices decline considerably when patents expire. The degree of price reduction varied critically between products and nations. Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, diabetes & cardiovascular diseases are creating huge demand for the drugs. However, the numbers of patent expired branded drugs is constantly increasing in the North America region which is providing huge potential opportunities to the generic drugs industry as the generic drugs offer various advantages over the non-generic drugs. For instance in 2019 FDA approved approximately 108 generic patents only in U.S.A.
