Top 10 Generic Drug Companies 2010

This is a listing of the top U.S. generic companies based on sales from Jan.-Dec., 2009. In recent years, Big Pharma has begun to look beyond developing brand-name drugs to the generics market. With the rising costs of healthcare, governments and payers alike are pushing for increased generics usage. And Big Pharma companies like Novartis and Pfizer are paying attention, striking deals with generics companies and even building units of their own.

FiercePharma's 2010 generic drugmakers report includes profiles of the top generics companies. Information included in this report was provided by IMS, a healthcare information and consulting company, and is based on sales of leading corporations in unbranded generics, MAT Dec. 2009.
