The future of the generics landscape: Key branded drugs losing exclusivity in 2021 and beyond

Health Industry Hub | November 3, 2021 |

Clarivate, a global leader in providing trusted information and insights to accelerate the pace of innovation, announced the launch of its new report identifying six branded drugs to watch that are losing exclusivity in 2021 and beyond that could impact the generics market. The report also flags the antineoplastics therapeutic area, which has several brands expected to lose exclusivity in the next five years.

Patent expirations in specialty drugs and biologics offer potentially substantial cost savings to patients and payers. Generics comprise the majority of prescriptions in the world’s top market places. Their share is only likely to grow, with biosimilars beginning to make a serious impact.

Generic drugs now account for 92% of all prescription drugs dispensed in the United States, according to figures from the International Generics and Biosimilar Medicines Association.

In Europe, 67% of drugs dispensed are generic, and in Japan, generics make up 77% of prescription drugs by volume.

Over the next seven years, there are at least 120 molecules that are predicted to lose exclusivity annually in key global markets. These all have the potential to be genericised and contribute to more affordable health care for patients globally.

A post-pandemic world needs more affordable alternatives and stronger supply chains Generics and biosimilars are poised to play a key role in meeting patient needs as the world’s economies and health systems recover. The generics and biosimilars ecosystem is expected to grow larger and more diverse over the next few years, shaped by financial pressures on payers and manufacturers alike.

Top three brands losing exclusivity in key markets in 2021

Although there are a number of products losing exclusivity in 2021, many countries will see a sharp increase in 2022. An ability to forecast which drugs will be impacted helps pharma companies plan accordingly and highlights opportunities for manufacturers.
