Generic pharmaceutical companies

In general, the U.S. generic pharmaceutical industry has seen significant growth in recent years. Certain players have shown to hold a bigger presence in the industry. Among the top 10 pharmaceutical companies by U.S. unbranded generics revenue in 2016-2017, Fresenius Kabi generated the least revenue and Teva generated the most revenue. Among all pharmaceutical companies (including non-generic), Pfizer was projected to be the top revenue generating company in the coming years based on prescription drug revenues worldwide.
