Pharmerging Market Trends:

Increasing generic population

The increasing generic population across the globe is contributing to the market growth. The growing elderly population is having varying effects on the pharmerging sector around the world. It is anticipated that by 2030, one out of every six individuals will be above the age of sixty. China's geriatric population is predicted to reach 330 million by 2050, while India's geriatric population will surpass 277 million by 2050. The most frequent diseases in the geriatric population are dementia, hypertension, and cardiac failure. These disorders necessitate continuous and sustained treatment. This, in turn, is providing a boost to the pharmerging market outlook.

Rising demand for generic therapies

The rising demand for generic therapies is another major market driver. Healthcare systems in developing nations heavily promote generic pharmaceuticals to minimize expenses. Generic medications and therapies are offered at 20% to 35% lower prices than their branded counterparts. This them accessible to a larger segment of the population in pharmerging markets where budget constraints are common. Furthermore, the rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular conditions creates an ongoing demand for affordable medications, which generics can meet effectively. This, in turn, is favorably impacting the pharmerging market growth. According to the India Brand Equity Foundation's Indian Pharmaceutical Industry report, which was published in November 2021, the country's pharmaceutical industry accounts for more than 25% of the demand for pharmaceuticals in established European nations. Generic medications have the same ingredients as their non-generic versions. Generic pharmaceutical manufacturers make little investments in marketing and advertising. This is one of the main reasons for their affordability. The Government of India created the 'Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Janaushadhi Pariyojana' (PMBJP) to raise public awareness about generic drugs. It strives to deliver generic pharmaceuticals that cover the broadest range of therapeutic areas. This, in turn, is creating a positive outlook for the pharmerging market overview.

Growing awareness about early detection of chronic diseases

The growing awareness regarding early detection of chronic diseases is favoring market growth. Chronic diseases have been a source of concern in recent years. According to the OECD, cardiovascular diseases account for about 9 million fatalities in the Asia Pacific. One of the important pharmerging market trends is an increase in public awareness of early diagnosis of chronic diseases to facilitate timely treatment, which is directly related to the amount of time spent researching cost-effective remedies for these conditions. The need to introduce inexpensive pharmaceuticals to address chronic diseases at an early stage is driving up the pharmerging market revenue.
