The aging population of the nation and increasing incidences of chronic diseases are driving the growth of India generic drugs market in the forecast period.

According to TechSci Research report, “India Generic Drugs Market – By Region, Forecast & Opportunities, 2018-2028, the India Generic Drugs market stood at USD24.53 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach USD36.51 billion by 2028. This can be attributed to the growing demand for generic drugs from hospitals & clinics. The rise in chronic diseases and increased cost of living can substantially raise the demand for generic drugs among the population. Generic medications follow strict rules to ensure that the same amount of active ingredients is supplied to the body simultaneously. Small molecule drugs are organic compounds with low molecular weight. They have several distinct advantages, such that most can be administered orally and pass-through cell membranes to reach intracellular targets.  They can also be designed to engage biological targets by various modes of action. Their distribution can further be tailored, for example, to allow for systemic exposure with or without brain penetration. However, patients consider them inferior to branded medications, and some are still in doubt of their efficacy and are reluctant to replace them with branded drugs.

The India generic drugs market is segmented into type, mode of drug delivery, form, source, distribution channel, application, region and by company. Based on generic drug type, the market is bifurcated into small molecule generic drugs and biosimilar generic drugs. Small molecule generic drugs held the largest market share of around 70.01% market share in 2022. This can be attributed to low-cost of the generic drugs in comparison to the branded drugs and affordability by the large segment of patients belonging from middle to low-income family.

Based on the mode of drug delivery, the market is divided among oral, parenteral, topical routes and others. The oral mode of drug delivery segment dominated the market in 2022 and is anticipated to continue maintaining its dominance during the forecast period.
