Although the faster approvals of generic product is encouraging, there are still many challenges to bring new economic and affordable product into the market that enables manufactures to make some profits and stay afloat as the cost of making generic drugs is same as branded drugs, yet branded drugs enjoy the greater profits because of patent protection.

It is also a challenge for health care personnel as there will be existence of several generic alternatives to a branded drug. To switch from a renowned branded drug to generic drug will be a challenging task for a chronic patient and polypharmacy users and elderly people who can easily be confused, especially due to the difference in morphology.

A biosimilar is a biologic medical product that is an identical copy of an original product. Biosimilars are practically identical to licensed original reference product with minor differences in clinically inactive components; also, there are no clinically meaningful differences between the biological and the reference product in terms of safety, purity, and potency. Although both generic drugs and biosimilars have related commercial basis, they are two completely different products when it comes to their structure, development and authorization. Biosimilars are becoming an increasingly significant in the field of pharmaceuticals industry worldwide, the challenges to develop and demonstrate biosimilars should overcome the inherent differences in the bioprocess manufacturing and biological, physiochemical characterization of a biosimilar compared with several different reference products. The technological difficulties to make copy of products while concentrating on regulatory and market demands is required to help innovation in the direction of attaining productive manufacturing process.

The global pharma marketplace is experiencing essential auxiliary modifications with essential ramifications for India and Indian groups. North America continues on being the most important Pharma Market promotes it on earth including to about 33% of the $1 trillion in every year worldwide pharma deals in esteem phrases. Be that as it may, with the quick pace of improvement in Pharma Industry offers in Asia within the direction of the maximum latest five years and the European Biosimilars Market everyday development in the medium-term destiny, the focus of gravity for the pharma market is step by step shifting towards biosimilar manufacturers Europe is probably going to soon surpass North America as some distance as fashionable pharma offers. This is a pattern that might be going to proceed for year’s Biosimilars interchangeability to return because of expansive macroeconomic drivers, as an example, population and profits development biosimilar drugs. Beyond any doubt Japan and China accepted biosimilars will maintain on dominating pharma offers in Asia. For instance, with yearly pharma gives of over $eighty billion, China is as of now more than 5 times the extent of the Indian local pharma show off concerning esteem. Be that as it could, short every year marketplace profits development quotes of extra than 10-12 for each penny in countries, for example, India are likely going to peer an extending enthusiasm by global Pharma Industy corporations in different European Pharma markets such as from all global Pharmaceutical Industry.

The global generic drugs market reached value of US$340 Billion in 2018, registering a CAGR of 6.6% during 2011-2018. A generic drug is a medicine that contains the similar active ingredient and has an bioequivalent therapeutic effects like original drug. It is also identical in case of safety, quality, dosage, strength, route of intake, usage, effects, form, quality and side effects. These drugs can be produced only after the patent expiration of the brand-name drug. As compared to branded drugs, the production of generics cheaper as it does not require the repeated clinical (human) and animal studies to understand the effectiveness and safety of the medicine. The Global market for generic drugs should reach the target value $533 billion by 2021 from $352 billion in 2016 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.7%, from 2016 to 2021. Global drug markets for generic drugs, includes such as antibacterial, antidepressants, anticancer agents, anti-arthritics, cardiovascular drugs, Drugs for respiratory conditions, including asthma and COPD.


Intellectual property has different forms in case of access to medicine, patent is an public policy, where government  aims to provide  monopoly to a company in the market  as an compensation for Research and development and also providing benefits to public in from of technological advancements, extensive patent protection delays and controls the competition in generic drug market ,patent expiry dates are critical for the timing of generic entry into the market.

 A generic drug is a pharmaceutical product, usually intended to be interchangeable with an innovator product that is manufactured without a license from the innovator company and marketed after the expiry date of the patent or other exclusive rights. Already prevalent in the U.S., Europe and much of the developing world, generic drugs are now finding their way into previously untapped markets such as Japan, largely driven by regulatory efforts to reduce healthcare costs. Generic drugs will account for nearly $350 Billion in revenue by the end of 2015. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 12% over the next 5 years. As the market consolidates; larger players continue to grow their market share on the heels of acquisitions and mergers. Well established players are particularly keen to capitalize on joint ventures in untapped markets such as Japan.
