Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 14.8 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 8.5% during 2023-2028. The growing number of hospitals and clinics, favorable government initiatives, and the rising prevalence of chronic diseases represent some of the key factors driving the market.

Generic drugs are medications created to be the same as an already marketed brand-name drug in dosage form, safety, strength, route of administration, quality, performance characteristics, and intended use. They work in the same way and provide the same clinical benefits as the brand-name medicine. They meet the same high standards of quality and manufacturing and use active ingredients to offer the same benefits as the patent medicines. They can be oral, intravenous, intramuscular, nebulizer, and topical. They are highly cost-effective as the drug manufacturer does not have to duplicate the original clinical trials for effectiveness and safety. They are easily available and patients do not need to investigate far to find alternatives to popular non-generic medicines. As they are usually covered by insurance companies due to their low cost, the demand for generic drugs is rising in Canada.
