The activities to know the market of a technological product must know not only the exclusively economic analyses but to consider the technological existing information. The present work was approached as a study of case for the application of some tools of technological alertness to determine the possibility of producing medicines of biotechnological base in Chile. Of the information that exist, is clear that the biogenerics in general are very sophisticated and need for the elaboration, a long period of management, of technical and clinical precise and sophisticated controls and significant amounts of investment in research and development. In Chile, 100 % of the imported biotechnological products are finished products and that does not exist exportation of biotechnological products from Chile. In Chile yet does not have sufficient technological aptitude to include all the stages that are needed to place a biotechnological product on the market.
