patent expiration

The pharmaceutical industry faced one of the biggest waves of drug Patent expiration in history. A significant number of top-selling drugs in the history of the pharmaceutical industry will experience patent expirations over the next 5 years, paving the way for lower-priced generics, In total, patents on drugs worth $12 billion expired by the end of 2011, and in 2012 that figure is expected to increase to more than $30 billion in annual sales. The United States between 2007 and 2012 alone, as more than three dozen drugs lose patent protection during this time. Evaluation of Pharma has determined that in 2013, patents will expire on drugs that currently have sales of $29 billion annually. The research firm expects more than 70% of that total will be lost to generics. Falling revenue is usually tracked by a falling share price. When patents expire for brand-name prescription drugs, pharmaceutical manufacturers can produce and sell generic equivalents. Patent expirations up to 2016 will reduce brand spending in worldwide developed markets by $127 billion, but will be counterbalanced by generic spending, resulting in a five-year global savings of close to $106 billion. The global generic pharmaceuticals market is likely to witness strong growth in the next few years owing to the patent expiration of key blockbuster drugs and the judicious cost containment efforts of governments and healthcare service providers worldwide. At the same time, the balance in terms of healthcare expenditure and sales revenue is poised to shift from developed to emerging markets such as India, China, Brazil, Russia, Turkey and South Korea, as huge potential still remains untapped in these countries. The patent expiration of blockbuster drug fuel the growth of global generic drug pharmaceutical market. Many branded pharmaceutical companies drugs expired in last few years like Lipitor, Cozaar, Concerta, Crestor, Levaquin and Zyprexa. Market leaders such as Teva, Sandoz and Mylan are increasingly focused on generics, as this segment provides a competitive edge and presents huge profit margins. Patent expiration opens the door for generic versions which make the healthcare available to the consumers at cheaper costs as compared to the patented drugs.
