United States Generic Drug Market Outlook to 2024 - Patent Expiry of Blockbuster Drugs Presents Lucrative Opportunities - ResearchAndMarkets.com

February 26, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 26, 2019--The “US Generic Drug Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The US generic drug market has witnessed a transformation over the last three decades. From less than 20% of the total prescriptions, generic drugs now account for the majority of the total prescriptions dispensed in the United States. During 2011-2018, the US generic drug market grew at a CAGR of 12% and currently represents a multibillion dollar industry.

The biggest catalyst of this industry is the significantly lower price of generics compared to branded drugs. Although generics are chemically identical to their branded counterparts, they are typically sold at substantial discounts from the branded price. This has enabled governments and third-party payers to save billions of dollars in healthcare expenditures and resulted in lower co-payments for patients.

Other factors such as patent expiration of blockbuster innovator drugs, ageing population and an increasing prevalence of chronic diseases have also acted as catalysts for this market.
