Global Generic Injectables Market to Reach US$ 90.9 Billion by 2032, Propelled by Favorable Government Initiatives

April 25, 2022 | Healthcare

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Generic Injectables Market Report by Therapeutic Area (Oncology, Anaesthesia, Anti-infectives, Parenteral Nutrition, Cardiovascular), Container (Vials, Ampoules, Premix, Prefilled Syringes), Distribution Channel (Hospitals, Retail Pharmacy), and Region 2024-2032,” finds that the global generic injectables market size reached US$ 47.5 Billion in 2023. Generic injectables are alternative drugs that are bio-equivalent to their branded counterparts. They contain similar active ingredients, strength, quality, effectiveness, intended use, and dosage. These injectables help in the easy absorption of drugs into the body in liquid form, which reduces the frequency of dosage administration without affecting the effectiveness of the treatment. They are also cost-effective as they do not require investments in research and development (R&D) and promotional activities.

Global Generic Injectables Market Trends:

Nowadays, the governing authorities of numerous countries are undertaking favorable initiatives to support the manufacturing of generic injectables. This can be accredited to the rising drug shortage and upcoming patent expiry of several branded drugs. Besides this, the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, and Alzheimer’s and the rising geriatric population that is more susceptible to such ailments are positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, generic injectables are widely adopted by patients who are unable to take medicines by mouth and have poor intestinal absorption. In addition, various key players are engaging in mergers and acquisitions (M&As) and partnerships to develop complex and differentiated products, which is creating a favorable market outlook across the globe. Furthermore, the emergence of self-injection devices, the improving healthcare infrastructures in developed and developing economies, and rapid technological advancements in drug delivery systems are some of the other factors augmenting the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 90.9 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
