Canada Generics Set for Double Digit Growth

Noida, India (PressExposure) August 24, 2009 -- Canada represents one of the fastest growing generics market in the world duly supported by government cost containment measures and patent expiry of branded drugs which formerly had billions of dollars sales in the country. This has lead generic drug category to hold more than half of the total pharma prescription and 23% of the total pharmaceutical sales in 2008. This shows that generics have become an important segment in the Canadian pharmaceutical market, which is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of above 14% during 2009-2013, says our new report “Generic Drug Market in Canada”.

We have done extensive research on Canadian generics market and identified various decisive trends taking place across the market. We have concluded that low cost factor is the principal reason which is driving the generics market growth despite recession.
