AMSTERDAM--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Genmed Holding Corp. (OTCBB: GENM) is preparing for many of the blockbuster branded pharmaceuticals that will go off-patent in 2011 and 2012. According to a brief published by the United States’ Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE), more than $209 billion in annual branded drug sales are projected to go off-patent between 2011 and 2014. Big name drugs projected to go off-patent include Advair, Viagra, Seroquel, Zyprexa, Symbicort, Singulair, and Lexapro.

Global projections for the international generic market are estimated to reach between $135 billion and $150 billion by 2015. BCC Research estimates the global market to reach $129.3 billion by 2014, representing a 9% annual growth rate.

GenMed Chief Executive Officer, Erwin Bouwens, said, “The coming decade will be a period of aggressive growth for companies positioned in the generic pharmaceuticals market. We plan to take full advantage of the opportunities to apply for additional drug licenses as they become available. We are currently working with our manufacturing and distribution partners to determine which product licenses will make the most strategic sense for us.”
