Market Dynamics


Surge in demand for generic medicines

The generics are low-cost medications having therapeutic efficacy and safety profiles similar to those of their branded counterparts. One of the primary factors fueling the expansion of the generics industry is the growing desire to reduce rising healthcare expenditures. The governments all around the world are supporting the use of generic medications because of the cost savings. As a result, the surge in demand for generic medicines is driving the growth of the pharmaceutical manufacturing market during the forecast period.


High cost of manufacturing

According to some estimates, the manufacturing costs of pharmaceuticals amount high as compared to profit of key market players, which is also more than double the share of costs for research and development. Thus, the high manufacturing costs is limiting the market growth.


Growing population of geriatrics

According to most recent estimates, there will be 2 billion individuals over the age of 60 by 2050. The geriatric people are more prone to chronic and infectious diseases. That’s the reason, the geriatric people consume medicines and drugs on a large scale. Thus, the growing population of geriatrics is creating growth opportunities for the pharmaceutical manufacturing market.


Stringent government regulations

To ensure that pharmaceutical products are developed and delivered safely, major regulatory agencies implement tough laws and regulations. These pharmaceutical quality requirements emphasize the importance of safety and quality. Thus, strict government regulations are a major challenge for the market growth.
