Key Highlights

  • For the purposes of this profile, a generic drug is defined as a copy of an ethical (prescription) drug formerly protected by patents that have now expired. Both unbranded generics and all branded generics are included. However, off-patent drugs that continue to be offered by the original manufacturer under the original name, and which form part of the 'generic-eligible' market, are not included.
  • The market value is evaluated at ex-factory prices.
  • Market volume is quantified here as the percentage of the total ethical pharmaceutical market volume in a country or region which is accounted for by generic drugs. It is therefore a generics penetration rate measure, not an absolute measure of market volume.
  • Regional volumes are calculated as weighted averages of countries which make up the region in question where volume data exists.
  • Note that any volumes of '1' (one) or 100% are due to rounding as the publisher does not believe that generics will ever fully represent 100% of the medicinal market in any country or region.
  • All market data and forecasts are represented in nominal terms (i.e., without adjustment for inflation) and all currency conversions used in the creation of this report have been calculated using constant 2021 annual average exchange rates.
