      Biologics, over-the-counter (OTC) medicines, and generics markets have become increasingly competitive and now offer the greatest potential for growth. Biologics, including vaccines, blood and blood components, allergy detection and treatment, and gene therapy, account for a quarter of all new drugs in clinical trials or awaiting approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The growing aging population and consumer trends towards self-medication, combined with conversion of drugs from prescription status to non-prescription status.

       

      The U.S. market has a favorable regulatory and patent market, which helped it become the largest free-pricing pharmaceutical market in the world. Future growth of the industry in the nation is fueled by U.S. government support of biomedical research, the market’s unparalleled research and scientific base, and an innovative biotechnology sector.
