Branded generics are generic drugs that have been given a proprietary market name. They may be marketed in a similar way as branded drugs. Branded generic drugs attach proprietary names to generic drug molecules. Some branded generics are specially made as novel dosage forms of off-patent drugs, filling in a dosage gap while offering consumers a name that is likely easier to remember than the true generic name. Branded generics are a small but profitable segment of the pharmaceutical market. Branded generics go through the same FDA approval process as other generics after branded drug patents expire.
According to a report released by VOXEU, with healthcare budgets worldwide under pressure, switching to branded generics seems a natural cost saver. Branded generics are cheaper alternatives to branded medicines, offering efficiency gains to any healthcare system. For instance, in 2016, US$ 253 billion was generated by generic medicines accounting for one-quarter of a trillion dollars. Additionally, US$ 1.6 trillion in healthcare savings in the same year accounted for in the US healthcare system evaluating a 10-year saving due to the availability of low-cost generics.
