Large Molecular Injectables to Register Stellar Growth

The large molecular injectables segment is projected to capture lion’s share in the global generic injectables market, accounting for 3/5th of the total market value. Rising demand for affordable biological products, accelerated research and development activities for biosimilar products and expected patent expiry of blockbuster molecules by 2020 are key drivers. Large molecular injectable drugs are anticipated to expand at a stellar CAGR of 34.8% during the forecast period.

At the same time, the small molecular injectables segment shall hold a little over two-fifth of the generic injectables market.
