Pune, India - March 14, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

For the purposes of this profile, a generic is defined as a copy of an ethical (prescription) drug formerly protected by patents that have now expired. Both unbranded generics and all branded generics are included. However, off-patent drugs that continue to be offered by the original manufacturer under the original name, and which form part of the 'generic-eligible' market, are not included. The market value is evaluated at ex-factory prices. Market volume is quantified here as the percentage of the total ethical pharmaceutical market volume in a country or region which is accounted for by generic drugs. It is therefore a generics penetration rate measure, not an absolute measure of market volume. Regional volumes are calculated as weighted averages of countries which make up the region in question where volume data exists.

The commentary by the North's official Korean Central News Agency on Tuesday said the country's...
