While Japan is the second largest pharma market globally, it has a very low penetration rate of generic drugs. The country’s government has set an ambitious goal to enhance the generics penetration to at least 30% of all ethical drugs by the end of 2012. The segment’s growth is expected to be driven by various factors such as a rapidly aging population, government initiatives to reduce healthcare spending and key drug patent expiries. The huge potential of this market has also attracted foreign players to this relatively untapped market, as they have collaborated or acquired stake in some of the domestic companies. Many Japanese hospitals are adopting the Diagnosis Procedure Combination (DPC), a flat-fee system that is promoting the penetration of generics in Japan.
