Industry Issues If the branded pharmaceutical industry was facing a patent cliff it is now teetering on the edge of it. Ironically, it is the world’s best selling drug, Lipitor, which exemplifies the trend. Despite still having patent protection, Pfizer has been unable to stem the tide of interest and pressure from a number of companies, Ranbaxy being chief amongst them. Despite pressure on prices in many markets, the generic sector continues to thrive with increased sales across the board in 2011. The maturity of the


sector can also be seen in the size of the businesses: there are now 17 generic companies with revenues in excess of US$1 billion, 5 more than in 2008/09. World Generic Market Company Assessments Consolidation and collaboration continues to be the game plan for many in the sector. The rationalisation of the industry continues, but it is driven by different motivations. Certainly Teva’s acquisition of ratiopharm was of the traditional model of adding market and value, but the 2011 acquistion of Cephalon is altogether more interesting as it supports Teva’s long term movement to the development of branded drugs. But adding capability is equally important. Watson’s acquisition of Arrow group also provided a stake in Eden Biodesign which gives the company a platform for the biosimilars market. Market Analysis The generic market is experiencing two opposing trends driven by the global downturn. On one hand, the use of generics is increasing due to their cost-effectiveness and adoption has accelerated in markets where branded prescribing was dominant. On the other hand, the squeeze on government spending has not left generics untouched with many countries lowering generic prices through cuts in reimbursement rates or contract tendering with a resultant squeeze on margins.
