P.I. or Parallel Importing is the sourcing of branded products from a global supplier and importing them, where they are distributed in competition with identical products supplied by the original manufacturer. A generic drug is marketed under the chemical name of the principle active ingredient rather than a brand name. Generic drugs can only be sold after any patent protection covering the original branded drug has expired. Generic drugs are marketed alongside the original branded drug and are often significantly cheaper.
