Market Shares And Growth Of Key Pharmaceutical And Generic Players In Japan

Navi Mumbai, India (PressExposure) January 12, 2009 -- Japanese Generic Market Forecast to 2013

The Japanese market is characterized by a strong support by the government, which in a desperate bid to limit its healthcare costs, is introducing a number of generic-friendly policies. Other factors such as a large number of patent expiries and the largely un-penetrated nature of the market are also contributing towards the market growth.

The generic market is presently dominated by domestic manufacturers, with the top six manufacturers accounting for 56% of the total market in 2007. But opening up of the market and introduction of a number of generic-friendly reforms is attracting a number of foreign players in the market.

Despite such a big opportunity for future, the market also has a number challenges to deal with. Generic drugs are still regarded as cheap, low quality alternatives of branded drugs.

Despite these challenges, our forecast models suggest that the generic drugs market will grow at a CAGR of around 8.8% between 2009 and 2013.
