In July 2016, COFECE’s board of Commissioners ordered the development of a Market study to detect competition concerns in the off-patent drug market derived from regulatory and public policy failures.

In August 2017, the Commission published the “Study on free market and competition in the expired-patent drug markets in Mexico” which finds competition problems that hamper the participation of a greater number of economic agents in the market and in consequence, the incentives to ensure more options of drugs at competitive prices for Mexican families.
