Analyzing Generics Market in Japan 2017

Analyzing Generics Market in Japan 2017

The development of the generic drugs sector in Japan has been a long standing plan of the Japanese government. The country has one of the highest healthcare costs amongst the G8 countries and the government has been focusing on developing the generics market in order to combat the rising healthcare and pharmaceutical costs. Due to this, the growth of the Japanese generics market does lag behind its peers countries.

Having experienced fluctuating growth in recent years, the Japanese generics industry has finally stabilized in terms of volume in the last year or so. The market's growth in terms of value is also expected to stabilize in the near future. The Japanese government plans to increase the share of the generics segment to nearly 80% of the total pharmaceutical market volume by the end of 2020.
