Branded Generics in South East Asia: Current and Future Opportunities

NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:


Branded Generics in South East Asia: Current and Future Opportunities




With its fast-growing, young population and projected pharmaceutical sales in excess of $20 billion in 2014, countries in the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) represent a great opportunity for Pharma.



However, with regional marketing practices, uncertain production values of locally manufactured generics and a huge diversity in healthcare delivery across ten nations of varying income levels, there are also great challenges.



Despite the disadvantages large multinationals face, major pharmaceutical companies are diving into the region, focusing on revenue from new chemical entities and developing 'branded' generics as key investments.



But given regional dynamics, pro-generic legislation, inconsistent IPR enforcement and local industry protection, what are the factors that the industry can leverage to drive success?




Report Overview

Asia: Current and Future Opportunities explores why the pharmaceutical industry is focusing on branded generics and new chemical entity (NCE) revenues.

Key quotes

"What's important is where the power lies, so when the power lies with the doctor, we have a branded generics kind of a market. When the power lies with the payer, which could be the government, insurance scheme, wholesaler or the pharmacies, then it becomes a more or less an unbranded generics market." – Manish Bajaj, Senior Director Strategy for Branded Generics Markets, Dr Reddy's


"At present the jury is still out. Companies have started launching their branded generic brands but I can't say for sure that success is guaranteed in South East Asia." – Dr. Suchitra Kataria, former Head of Business Development and In-Licensing - Regional Strategic Development Asia Pacific at Bayer Schering Pharma, Singapore


"If you really talk about success in terms of 20-25 years... the branded generics market will move to a more unbranded generics market as we have seen in Europe." – Manish Bajaj, Senior Director Strategy for Branded Generics Markets, Dr Reddy's
