MEA Generic Drugs Market Size (2021 to 2026)

As per our report, the size of the Middle East and Africa Generic drugs market has been calculated at USD 31.00 billion in 2021 and is expected to be worth USD 42.67 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 6.60% between 2021 to 2026.

Medications with the same active component as brand-name drugs are known as generics. These pharmaceuticals also have the same therapeutic effect and are prescribed in the same dose, with the same quality, and are consumed and used in the same manner.

Generic medications boost industry competitiveness, lowering generic medication prices and increasing the number of patients provided generic drugs by healthcare professionals.

The generic medicines market in the MEA region is quite large. It is expected to continue to grow in the anticipated timeline, with the major aspects contributing to this growth, rising chronic illness prevalence, rising elderly population, and rising healthcare spending. Every year, the number of chronic cases rises significantly in the central nervous system, cardiovascular diseases, oncology, diabetes, and various other diseases, increasing the number of people taking generic pharmaceuticals.

Several demographic reasons are driving the pharmaceutical business in the Middle East and Africa. These include quickly changing population dynamics, such as population growth while concurrently aging populations. In addition, non-contagious chronic diseases and disorders, such as cardiovascular disease, obesity, and type-2 diabetes, have increased due to lifestyle changes.

The existence of some significant players in this industry and emerging economics are some of the region’s driving forces. Outstanding is being used by vendors as a technique to save money, which will benefit generic medications.

Late-stage failures in the drug development process raise research and development expenses and reduce pharmaceutical companies profit margins. As laws on the quality and safety of excipients and pharmaceuticals become more stringent, present manufacturing and quality assurance processes must be upgraded, increasing the overall manufacturing cost. Despite major investments in excipient and medication manufacture in recent years, market development is projected to be hampered by the need for large capital investments throughout the forecast period. Furthermore, growing regulatory stringency regarding medication and excipient approval during the projected period is expected to hinder the MEA generic drugs market growth.

Over the last decade, Africa’s pharmaceutical business has increased dramatically. This is largely due to urbanization, with more economically developed cities implying that more people have access to medicines. Imports presently outnumber exports; thus, government policy encourages domestic drug manufacturing, the rise of non-communicable diseases, and rising healthcare costs. On the other hand, they are expected to draw international investment and expand domestic manufacturing capabilities.

Morocco, Tunisia, and Algeria are three North African countries that have recently established pharmaceutical manufacturing enterprises.

Other lifestyle disorders are also on the rise in the region, encouraging pharmaceutical company growth. Obesity-related and other cardiac illnesses are also on the rise. Although thrilled about the development prospects of a substantial compound annual growth rate, Middle Eastern generic producers confront stiff competition from multinational corporations.

Academic and research institutes, R&D facilities, and advanced medical facilities proliferate in Israel. Therefore, biotech progress will almost certainly be a market driver in the future.
