Market Overview:

The global generic drugs market size reached US$ 343.6 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 460.5 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 6.83% during 2023-2028.

Generic drugs are bioequivalent of branded medicines with the same active ingredients and equivalent therapeutic effects. They also have similar dosages, risks, consequences, side effects, strengths, intended use, and route of administration. They are relatively less expensive than branded drugs, as the production does not require extensive research. Besides this, the production of these drugs does not involve the repetition of clinical and animal studies to measure the effectiveness and safety of the medicine. As a result, generic drugs are gaining immense traction across the globe.

Generic Drugs Market Trends:

The growing global geriatric population and the rising occurrence of chronic medical disorders, such as cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases, represent one of the key factors positively influencing the market. In addition, changing dietary patterns and hectic schedules of individuals are leading to various conditions, which, in turn, is catalyzing the demand for generic drugs worldwide. Along with this, increasing efforts by governments of various countries to reduce healthcare costs and promote the manufacturing and uptake of generics are contributing to the market growth. They are also encouraging key players to introduce effective generic drugs and provide easy availability. Apart from this, the low production cost of generic medicines is creating a positive outlook for the market. Additionally, the expansion of the pharma companies and medical stores across the globe is further augmenting the market growth. Furthermore, the rising focus of leading manufacturers on partnership strategies to launch new products is propelling the market growth. Moreover, increasing investments in extensive research and development (R&D) activities and technological advancements in medicine formulation are anticipated to drive the market.
