  • Price competition
  • Reduces prices through a cost effective way since generics are effective alternatives to higher priced originator pharmaceuticals.
  • Competition between generics and even originators with generics

Ex. : Amaryl® price was reduced in it’s country of origin (ITALY) to compete with the generics introduced into the market & that was reflected on Jordan’s drug prices of both Amaryl® and it’s generics.

  • Innovation
  • Since there is no permanent monopoly on pharmaceutical products this would enhance the originator companies to discover new medicines
  • GENERICS in return develop new generic equivalents, new formulations, new dosage regimes, methods of delivery and some may develop their own NEW CHEMICALENTITIES so as the case in JORDAN.
