DUBLIN, Mar. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/q32rbr/global_generic) has announced the addition of the "Global Generic Drugs Industry: Trends, Profits and Forecast Analysis" report to their offering.
The global generic drugs industry, which experienced solid growth over the last five years, is expected to continue its momentum to reach an estimated $335 billion in 2017 with a CAGR of 6.5% over the next five years. Increasing government efforts to reduce healthcare costs, patent expirations of blockbuster drugs, and rising incidence of chronic diseases are expected to drive the demand for generic drugs during the forecast period.
The industry comprises firms primarily engaged in the development, manufacture, and marketing of generic drugs. The generic segment includes generic drugs from all therapeutic areas including central nervous system drugs, cardiovascular drugs, oncology drugs, and all such generic drugs.
The industry is fragmented and affected by government regulations in different regions and countries.
As the study indicates, cost effectiveness and increasing awareness have increased the demand for generic drugs. Stringent regulatory approval processes, price control measures for generic drugs, and increasing export barriers are some of the challenges for the industry.
Asia Pacific (APAC) is forecast to witness the highest growth over 2012-2017 and North America will remain the largest market during forecast period. Transformation in the healthcare sector and desire to control costs are anticipated to boost generic drugs use in North America.

The report studies manufacturers and distributors of generic drugs, providing a five-year annual trend analysis that highlights market size, profit and cost structure for North America, Europe, APAC, and the Rest of the World.
