Revolutionary Effect of Generics in Healthcare Industry

In 1970s, the Indian Patents Act led to the revolutionary growth of the Indian pharma industry. The patent act recognized patent on process but not on the products, which enabled the local firms to reverse-engineer the drugs produced elsewhere and make cheaper versions of the drugs. Over the next thirty years, the industry grew from a handful MNCs to 16,000 licensed pharmaceutical companies.
