Generic pharmaceuticals refer to a drug that was developed to have the same dosage form, safety, strength, mode of administration, quality, performance attributes, and intended use as an already marketed brand-name drug. The action and clinical benefit of a generic drug are identical to those of a brand-name drug.

North America was the largest region in the generic pharmaceuticals market in 2022.Middle East is expected to be the fargest growing region in the forecast period.

The regions covered in the generic pharmaceuticals market report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.

The main types of generic pharmaceuticals are biosimilar; simple generic and super generic.A biosimilar is a biological product that is very similar to a reference biologic and has no clinically significant differences in terms of safety, purity, or potency.

The drugs are delivered through oral, injectables, dermal/topical, and inhalers that are used for various therapies such as CNS, cardiovascular, dermatology, genitourinary/hormonal, respiratory, rheumatology, diabetes, and oncology. The various distribution channel involved is hospital pharmacies, retail pharmacies, and online pharmacies.

The rising incidence of chronic diseases is one of the major drivers of the generic pharmaceuticals market.As more individuals are diagnosed with chronic diseases, they look for more medicines for treatment.

Branded drugs come at a premium price, while generic drugs are available at a lower cost having the same chemical composition as branded drugs.The low cost and same chemical composition and strength of generic drugs make a patient buy generic drugs instead of branded drugs.

If it is a chronic disease, the treatment goes for a longer period, and hence, the sales of generic drugs also increase.For instance, according to the WHO (World Health Organization), over the next 10 years, the deaths due to chronic disease is projected to increase by 17%.

Also, in 2020, almost 3-quarters of all deaths in the world are due to chronic diseases.

The lack of awareness about generic drugs is one of the restraints on the generic pharmaceutical market.The high marketing and advertisement of branded drugs overshadow the availability of generic drugs which are a substitute for expensive branded drugs.

Thus, consumers opt for branded drugs even though the generic drugs carry the same chemical formulation as their counter-branded drugs.According to an article published on CVS HEALTH, many doctors and pharmacists preferred to offer branded drugs to their patients over generic drugs.

This prevents the patients to go for generic drugs as they develop a preconceived notion of generic drugs not being at par with branded drugs.For example, according to research conducted by Sahana K Hebbar, in the International Journal of Basic & Clinical Pharmacology, out of 100 patients and 50 non-medical staff, 95% of the patients and 60% of the non-medical staff didn’t know about generic drugs.

Thus, a lack of awareness about the availability of generic drugs hampers the generic pharmaceuticals market.

3D printing technology can transform the manufacturing of drugs in the generic pharmaceutical market. 3D printed pharmaceuticals help improve R&D productivity and deliver new benefits to patients. 3D printing allows the manufacturer to produce drugs with customized size, shape, and texture which is not possible in traditional manufacturing of generic drugs. 3D printing can help the manufacturer to make generic drugs that have different release dates, appearances, and tastes. For example, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) completed a study where ultraviolet (UV) and 3D printing were used to manufacture tablets to treat Parkinson’s disease. Martin Wallace, director of GSK Technology, said that GSK is investing in 3D printing advantages to manufacture pills and tablets. Also, Aprecia pharmaceutical company launched ’ZipDose’ technology which manufactures 3D printed drugs.

The drug manufacturers must comply with the CGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practice) regulations that come under the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which includes generic pharmaceuticals.The CGMP regulations require manufacturers to maintain a minimum quality standard for the methods, controls, and facilities used in the manufacturing, packaging, and processing of drug products.
