Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Generic Injectables Market:

Before COVID-19, the significance and acceptance of generic injectables were not much considerable. But the pandemic led to the shortage of several injectables, such as remdesivir, which flashed the light on other generic injectables as well. During the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic and amid the second wave, there had been a tremendous surge in demand for remdesivir, an antiviral medication. Due to a shortage in the supply of several other generic injectables for COVID-19 treatment, companies in the generic injectables market joined hands to fulfill the country-level demands. For instance, Novartis collaborated with Civica Rx to address the issue of chronic shortages of needed injectables. As part of this deal with Civica, Novartis' Sandoz boosted the supply of six generic injectables that are high in demand at hospitals to tackle the scarcity faced by acute care settings. Additionally, Sandoz began shipments of a group of antibiotics, acid reducers, blood thinners, and injectables required in the operating rooms to 1,200-member hospitals of Civica. In addition to drug launches and price cuts, stakeholders in the generic injectables market conducted webinars to understand how manufacturers were combating COVID-19, alongside ensuring flexibility and simplicity during drug containment and delivery.

AstraZeneca; Baxter International Inc.; Biocon; Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA; GlaxoSmithKline plc; Hikma Pharmaceuticals PLC; Johnson and Johnson Services, Inc.; Lupin; Merck & Co., Inc.; Viatris Inc.; Pfizer Inc. are among the leading companies operating in generic injectables market.
