Generic Injectables Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024

Generic injectables are bio-equivalents of their branded counterparts which are not protected by drug patents. They are as safe and effective as the innovator drugs since they have similar active ingredient, dosage, strength, quality, form, etc. Although the manufacturing of generic injectables is complex, their R&D cycle is cheaper and shorter. Unlike branded drug manufacturers who spend millions of dollars on R&D and marketing, generic drug manufacturers do not require such investments. Moreover, the number of competitors in the generic injectables market is lower as compared to oral generics, resulting in limited price erosion and significantly higher profit margins.

Owing to the advantages offered by generic injectables, governments in various countries are supporting their manufacture. Additionally, an increase in drug shortages, especially in the US, along with patent expiry of a number of blockbuster drugs, aging population and rising prevalence of chronic as well as lifestyle diseases represent some of the other factors driving the growth of the market. According to IMARC Group’s latest report titled, “Generic Injectables Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the global generic injectables market reached a value of US$ 28.6 Billion in 2018, exhibiting a CAGR of 9.3% during 2011-2018.
