Generic drugs are drugs that are not associated with any company or a brand name and are subject to regulation of countries where they are dispensed. According to US FDA generic medicines are drugs that are identical or within an acceptable bioequivalent range with respect to pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics properties of branded drugs. More than 75% of the respiratory prescription drugs are delivered using inhalation or nasal spray technology.

High revenue generator drugs are undoubtedly attracting the interest of generic drug manufacturers due to low cost of manufacturing. Though the advantages may show a promising future for generic drug device manufactures, it does possess several delivery challenges such as incorporation of ozone friendly devices that contain hydrofluoroalkane and phasing out of CFC’s in metered dose inhalers.Some generic inhalers such as Advair have been approved in the EU, but these are generally branded products that use proprietary inhalation devices and are, therefore, not pure generics. In US manufacturing of generic MDIs are banned since 2008.

Market for inhalation & nasal spray generic drugs market seems promising for Asia-pacific due to rapidly aging demographics with 25% of population above 55 years of age and low purchasing power of consumers. In India due to patent cessations of bestseller drugs such as Advair from GlaxoSmithKline generic drug manufacturers are expected to actively participate in the production of generic version of these products. Indian companies are also ready with generic version of biotech drugs. Therefore, India and other Asian countries will be able to maintain a large generic market. In Europe, market for generic products are also restricted due to measures implemented in context with financial and economic crisis such as omission of most of generic drugs from reimbursement policies and introduction of tendering system for medicines in ambulatory care.The new health care lawsin United States to block the production of generic drugs in US creates a huge demand and prospecting future for Indian generic inhalers and nasal spray manufacturers.
