The global generic pharmaceuticals market size is expected to grow from $233.66 billion in 2020 to $245.6 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1%. The growth is mainly due to the companies resuming their operations and adapting to the new normal while recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The generic pharmaceuticals market is expected to reach $331.54 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 7.8%.

Respiratory drugs manufacturers are offering generic drugs to counter intense competition by top-performing drugs. Generic drugs help to provide affordable alternatives to branded products, ultimately providing patients with lower-cost access to expensive treatments. For instance, in February 2020, the US FDA approved the first generic albuterol sulfate inhaler to treat and prevent bronchospasms in patients with asthma or reversible obstructive airway disease. In the US, from 2018, generic medicines accounted for roughly 80% of all prescriptions, but inhaled generics for respiratory diseases accounted for less than 1%. However, companies now are trying to change this fact with a growing trend of investing in R&D for various respiratory generic drugs. For example, in 2018, Hikma Pharmaceuticals partnered with Vectura Group to develop generic versions of GlaxoSmithKline’s Ellipta respiratory medicines. In September 2018, Glenmark Pharma's announced that its subsidiary has secured marketing authorization in Germany for a generic version of GSK's drug used to treat asthma.

A recent trend in the generic pharmaceutical drugs market is that manufacturers are using 3D printing technology in the drug manufacturing process. This technique uses a combination of inkjet printing and UV curing to produce solid oral dosage forms of drugs. These attributes are particularly beneficial for patients who have difficulty swallowing their medication, which can affect adherence to treatment regimens. For instance, in In April 2020, UK-based FabRx launched the first commercially available 3D printer for personalised drug manufacturing.

Market-trend-based strategies for the generic pharmaceuticals market thus includes increasing use of 3D printing, along with adopting the use of artificial intelligence (AI), using biomarkers for drug development, collaborations for driving innovation, combination drug therapy, modification of existing epilepsy drugs, and rise of generic respiratory drugs.
