North America contributes the largest share to the global market, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. Developed geographies like North America and Europe are likely to grow at lower CAGRs as compared to the Asian market. The shift of focus of the pharmaceutical industries towards Asia and the high import of generics from emerging markets are hindering the growth of these geographies.
China, India, and Japan are likely to drive the growth of the Asian market. A majority of the growth in these markets is driven by increase in outsourcing to these locations mainly due to low-labor costs. These are also some of the most lucrative markets for manufacturing of generic drugs for the global market.
