Worldwide generic prescription drug revenue 2012-2026

This statistic depicts the total generic prescription drug revenue worldwide from 2012 to 2026. In 2019, the industry generated 79 billion U.S. dollars in generic prescription drug revenue worldwide. Until 2026, the global prescribed generics market is expected to exceed 100 billion U.S. dollars. Generics are much cheaper copies of originally branded drugs which lost their patent protection. Through the use of generics instead of branded/patent protected drugs, savings of many billions of dollars can be achieved.
