"[O]ther biologic drugs will (eventually) exhaust the 12 years of market exclusivity... [T]he pace of biosimilar approval is increasing and this trend can be expected to continue."

I think that this is the really important part. If we have not yet gotten as many generic biologics approved as the BPCIA's boosters had hoped, it is because it takes time for these things to clear their data exclusivity periods. Each day brings us closer to such periods ending, and a corresponding increase in the incidence of biologic generics.
