Generic drugs are drugs with the chemical makeup of a drug equivalent to an existing branded drug. These drugs are cheaper and equivalent to branded drugs in dosage, strength, route of administration, quality, performance, and application. Generic drugs are subjected to government regulations in various countries rather than being associated with a particular company.
The major factors that contribute to the growth of the generic drugs market include increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, diabetes & cardiovascular diseases, growth in geriatric population, increasing healthcare expenditure, high demand for generic medicines, and large number of patent expired branded drugs. However, stringent governmental regulations and adverse effects associated with drugs are expected to restrain the market development. The rising demand for newer versions of generic drugs, additional numbers of clinical trials, and large numbers of licensing & partnering strategies to launch new products by key vendors contributes to significant demand for generic drugs in the near future.
