Multiple Patent Expirations are Coming Up, Bringing in Large Number of Generic inhalers and nasal spray drugs, Says TMR

Posted on Jan 29, 2016

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., Sandoz International GmbH, Allergan PLC, and Mylan N.V., were the leading manufacturers of inhalation and nasal spray generic drugs in 2014. They collectively accounted for 45.9% of the revenue generated in the market for that year.

An oligopolistic market awaits new entrants trying to earn revenue through the manufacture of inhalation and nasal spray generic drugs. A handful of companies account for leading sales and production figures across multiple regions, while the remainder market is filled by a large number of localized players.

There are still untapped regions in the world for inhalation and nasal spray generic drugs, reports Transparency Market Research in a new study. Asia Pacific, for instance, shows much promise in terms of market expansion for companies involved.

Cost Effective Generic Prescription Drugs Boost Inhalation and Nasal Spray Generic Drugs Sales

All the commercially available inhalation and nasal spray generic drugs must be approved by the U.S. FDA. The standard generic drugs are usually offered at very low costs, increasing consumer their appeal to the consumer base.

Patent expirations are the primary reason for the explosion of generic drugs in the market. “Generic drug makers are able to reproduce the patent expired drugs at such a low price due to the elimination of the need for advertising and market, and most importantly, research and development,” explains a TMR analyst.

When generic drugs are added to the current mix of the healthcare industry, where medical expenses are extremely high, the introduction of new generic drugs will be a welcome change.

Emerging Economies under Stringent Regulations Against Inhalation and Nasal Spray Generic Drugs

“Quality is quickly becoming a primary cause for concern for inhalation and nasal spray generic drugs in developing economies,” states a TMR analyst. “The integrity of generic inhalers is being questioned in most of the emerging economies in the world due to the sheer number of companies coming forth with their versions of generic inhalation and nasal spray generic drugs.”

Due to this influx of generics into the commercial markets in developing regions, national governments have implemented a progressive standard for generic medicines and their sales. This could directly hamper the overall growth rate of the revenue generated.

The high stringency of regulations can be visible particularly in Russia, India, and Brazil. For instance, ANVISA of Brazil had modified its process of accepting and approving new generics. These changes will now cause new inhalation and nasal spray generic drugs to be approved after three to four years.
