Market Driven by Impending Patent Cliff, Declining R&D Productivity and Government Initiatives to Reduce Healthcare Costs
Generic Giants Strategize to Exploit Massive Patent Cliff Potential
Huge rewards and strong competition are prompting generic drug manufacturers to closely examine the best way to maximize market share as the industry patent cliff approaches its peak, states a new report from business intelligence analysts.
According to the firm's latest report, the revenues of drugs subject to patent expiration between 2013 and 2020 are valued at over US$100 billion, offering producers of generics and biosimilars a fantastic opportunity to substantially bolster their own sales.
However, while the next few years hold great promise for these companies, fierce competition exists not only from rival generics manufacturers, but also from major pharmaceutical players looking to maintain market dominance with Authorized Generics' (AG). In response, generics firms are re-evaluating their approach to the market.
Research states that companies such as Hospira are reaching out to new locales in order to build a global presence, while targeting governments looking to bring down healthcare costs. Exploiting pharmaceutically underdeveloped economies may allow generics firms to launch products first, challenging the intellectual property of proprietary pharmaceutical majors.
Generics producers also hope to capitalize on expiring patents by manufacturing complex generics that are difficult to reproduce. These super generics have high barriers to entry, a greater price than most other generics and incur greater Research and Development (R&D) costs; however, there is significant potential for super generics within specific therapeutic areas, such as cancer and conditions involving the central nervous system.
Research expects demand for high-quality generics to increase in the future, as key drugs lose patent protection and governments are offered opportunities to provide vital treatments at significantly reduced costs.
