Market volume share of generic drugs

A generic drug is a pharmaceutical product which is marketed by referring to its chemical composition, which is the same as a previous patented drug, and without advertising the brand name. In terms of volume of sales, the growth of generics in Italy was even more steady. In fact, the market volume share of generics constantly increased between 2006 and 2018, when it peaked at 26.9 percent.
