Asia Pacific Branded Generics Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis – by Therapeutic Application (Oncology, Cardiovascular Diseases, Diabetes, Neurology, Gastrointestinal Diseases, Dermatology Diseases, Analgesics and Anti-Inflammatory, and Others), Distribution Channel (Hospitals, Retail Pharmacies, Online Pharmacies, and Drug Stores), Drug Class (Alkylating Agents, Antimetabolites, Hormones, Antihypertensive, Lipid-Lowering Drugs, Antidepressants, Antipsychotics, Antiepileptic, and Others), and Formulation Type (Oral, Parenteral, Topical, and Others)
The branded generics market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow from US$ 71.45 billion in 2022 to US$ 130.39 billion by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 10.5% from 2022 to 2028.
A Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO) report states that promoting branded generics constitutes a core instrument for countries' national pharmaceutical policies, ultimately reducing drug expenditure with expanding healthcare access. In November 2008, the Department of Pharmaceuticals, Ministry of Chemicals & Fertilizers, Government of India launched Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Janaushadhi Pariyojana (PMBJP) to make quality generic medicines available at affordable prices. Under the scheme, dedicated outlets known as Janaushadhi Kendras offered generic medicines at affordable prices. As of 2021, 8,012 Janaushadhi Kendras were functional across the country. Moreover, a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) report states that if the FDA approves most branded generics, it can drop the costs of medicines. Generally, multiple generic drugs for the same product create competition in the market. For example, a single generic competitor results in price reductions of up to 30%, while five competing generics are associated with a price drop of nearly 85%.
The WHO estimates that about 65% of the Indian population lacks regular access to essential medicines despite India being one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of generic drugs. The price of generic drugs procured by the government in bulk is less than the price paid for a branded drug by an individual consumer. It can be lowered to 2% of the retail price of a branded drug. Therefore, the provision related to free drugs acts as one of the most important interventions responsible for mitigating the burden on healthcare costs. One of the targets of the proposed Sustainability Development Goals of Indian Government is to achieve universal healthcare coverage, including financial risk protection; access to quality essential health care services; and access to safe, effective, quality, and affordable essential medicines. Therefore, the rise in government initiatives for promoting branded generics drives the growth of the Asia Pacific branded generics market.
By introducing new features and technologies, vendors in the Asia Pacific branded generics market can attract new customers and expand their footprints in emerging markets. This factor is likely to drive the market at a good CAGR during the forecast period.
