Specialty Generics Drugs Market Size Worth $948.04 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 25.4%

The global specialty generics drugs market size is expected to reach USD 948.04 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Specialty Generics Drugs Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Type (Injectables, Oral Drugs, Others); By Application; By End-use; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2023- 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

Many pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and medical device companies have been focusing on expanding their market presence by merging with or acquiring other companies. The prevalence of life-threatening diseases, such as cancer, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and HIV, is increasing globally, which is expected to drive the demand for specialty medicines. Chronic diseases remain a major concern, particularly in emerging countries where they are the primary cause of mortality in five of the six WHO regions. Contagious diseases, such as HIV, are still widespread in Sub-Saharan Africa and are expected to continue to be a major issue. During the forecast period, the market for specialty medicines is expected to grow rapidly due to the high prevalence of life-threatening diseases.

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the pharmaceutical market, causing slower growth and a decline in net sales for several companies. Manufacturing plants had to face lockdown restrictions, clinical trials and studies had to be stopped, and there was a shortage of skilled labor. Mallinckrodt is one such company that experienced a -6.6% decline in its specialty generics segment, mainly due to increased competition and a change in product mix caused by market shifts during the pandemic. However, the market is showing signs of recovery in 2021, with mass vaccinations, easing of lockdown restrictions, and a growing demand for specialty medicines to treat chronic conditions.

Virtual trials offer numerous advantages, including remote data collection, increased participant engagement, and larger population inclusion. They minimize risks associated with in-person visits and reduce the burden on participants, coordinators, and investigators. By leveraging virtual methods, the clinical trials industry can overcome challenges, improve efficiency, and facilitate prompt and effective data collection.

With the increased approvals of new products and the expansion of the market, the segment is anticipated to grow rapidly.
  • In 2022, the largest market share was held by the segment of inflammatory conditions. The number of individuals with inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis is increasing globally.

In response to this rise in prevalence, major players in the healthcare industry are expanding their market share in this sector.
