Major Drivers and Impediments

The Biosimilars Market is navigating an environment marked by significant drivers and significant constraints, influencing the future of biopharmaceuticals. On the one hand, rising demand for low-cost biologic alternatives, along with the expiration of blockbuster medication patents, is driving market expansion. The prospect of improved patient access to important medications and lower healthcare costs is driving biosimilars innovation and investment.

However, difficult challenges such as complex regulatory procedures, intricate manufacturing methods, and safety and efficacy concerns remain significant roadblocks. Nonetheless, as technical advances continue to streamline production and close the gap between biosimilars and their reference biologics, the biosimilars market is poised to revolutionise healthcare access and cost, ushering in a new era in biopharmaceuticals. Stay informed and exploit chances in this ever-changing and dynamic landscape.

Market Segmentation

Biosimilars industry can be considered with respect to product, applications, and end users.

The products based on which the market has been split into are recombinant glycosylated proteins, recombinant peptides, and recombinant non-glycosylated proteins. Recombinant non-glycosylated proteins are the biggest segment in the global market, thanks to the soaring cases of chronic disorders ranging from growth hormone deficiency to diabetes. As a result, recombinant non-glycosylated proteins are therapeutically used as they are readily available and are cost-effective.

Application-wise, the biosimilars market caters to chronic diseases, oncology, blood disorders, autoimmune diseases, infectious diseases, growth hormone deficiency, and more. Blood disorders have emerged as the top segment, as a result of the rising burden of the condition worldwide and the increased use of biosimilars by virtue of their low cost and the overall reduction in the treatment cost.

Major end users in the global market are hospitals and clinics as well as research institutes. Hospital and clinics are healthcare settings where treatment options and skilled professionals are easily available, and therefore, have emerged as the leading segment in the global industry.

Regional Status

Europe, MEA or Middle East & Africa along with the Americas, APAC or Asia Pacific are the primary markets for biosimilars.

Europe has taken the lead in the global market, as the region houses a vast elderly pool, with close to one fifth of the overall EU population aged more than 65 years. This has given way to several lifestyle-related disorders such as oncology, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, to name a few. Presumably, the scenario has raised the demand for biosimilars and can mean higher market growth over the next few years. In addition to this, numerous blockbuster biologics are on track to lose patent in the coming years, which should present lucrative opportunities to the biosimilar manufacturers.

The North American market displays a bright outlook and can emerge quite lucrative in the coming years, in view of the surging burden of chronic ailments in Canada and the United States. The rising spending on research activities by the healthcare agencies also fuels the market expansion in the region. Favorable reimbursement landscape in the region, especially in the US, encourages healthy competition as it results in lower incentives for the players to compete based on price.

The APAC market is slated to witness considerable growth, with China, South Korea and India offering a host of lucrative opportunities for drug development as well as commercialization. These are generics-driven countries and are known for frequently launching new and advanced manufacturing platforms, which has brought down the costs associated with biosimilar production. In the coming few years, majority of the patent expiries is touted to be in biosimilars, which is deemed as a profitable aspect by leading manufacturers and can translate into substantial market growth.
