The low price of generic drugs as substitute to branded drugs is the supreme crucial factor in the growth of the global market for generic drugs. Generic drug firms do not have to experience high drug improvement costs and so cost is 85% less than branded drugs.

A very small amount is to be invested in the collection of pre-marketing data for generic medicines. The companies rely on the clinical evidence provided by the business of the innovators for the health and effectiveness of the drug. In addition, generic drug claimants do not need to repeat the animal and clinical (human) studies needed to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of brand name medicines. As a result, generic drugs, with similar active ingredients having the same strength, stability, purity, effectiveness and protection as branded drugs, are available at a lower price than branded drugs. Such advantages lead patients to opt for generics as alternatives to costly branded medications.

The degree of price reduction varied critically between products and nations. Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, diabetes & cardiovascular diseases are creating huge demand for the drugs.
