Thus, manufacturers in the generic injectables market are now prepared for the future as they focus on keeping adequate stock for keeping supply chain operations unaffected dur to any type of vulnerabilities. Gilead Sciences and other big pharma companies, for example, have reduced the prices of their generic versions of remdesivir considerably. Companies are utilizing government programs and financing schemes offered by the BFSI industries to streamline their operations. In May 2020, the US government entered into an agreement, worth US$ 812 million, with a group of American generic medicine manufacturers, with the goal of bolstering the country's drug supply amid the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Furthermore, the pandemic strained pharmaceutical industries globally, interrupting and delaying supply of various critical drugs. Many market players came to rescue with immediate actions. For instance, in January 2021, Civica Rx teamed up with the brand-new Phlow Corp. in an effort to support drug manufacturing in the US and supply critical medications to hospitals fighting the pandemic.

Innovator drugs are expensive owing to high investments made in the research & development of molecules; these drugs are specifically unaffordable for a large share of the population in developing countries. However, generic drugs are affordable and provide greater access to healthcare. As published by the Association for Accessible Medicines (AAM), the average primary copay (the amount set by the insurance plans) of a generic drug is US$ 6.06 and US$ 40.30 for branded drugs.
