Low cost involved with generic prescription drugs to Drive Market
- All generic drugs approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have met the same rigid standards as the branded innovator drug and are available at extremely affordable prices. Patent expiration of a branded drug leads to competition among generic manufacturers to produce generic versions at lower prices.

Additionally, a number of generic companies have approvals to market a single product. This creates competition in the market place, resulting in lower price of generics.
- Hence, generic drug utilization rate is only expected to increase in the next years as few inhalation drugs will go off patent through 2020. This is likely to drive the inhalation and nasal spray generic drugs market.
