The global generics market generated revenues of approximately $162 billion with a growth of 9.3% in 2011, representing about 19% of generic market share in the international pharmaceutical market. The generic pharmaceutical industry is significantly fragmented; the top 10 pharmaceutical companies accounted for 26% of global generics sales by value in 2011. The US has very high levels of generic utilization, with nearly 80% of prescriptions dispensed being generics.
The pharmaceutical industry will experience major patent expiries during 2013-2020, of which 2014 to 2017 are expected to be peak years, with the loss of patents for drugs whose sales were worth more than $76 billion during 2011. By 2015, branded products with sales of up to $135 billion will go off-patent, giving generic pharmaceutical companies immense opportunities to capitalize on the market. Along with generic drugs, pharmaceutical companies will also have the opportunity to develop biosimilars, as biologics with 2011 sales of approximately $64 billion will go off-patent over the next five years.
