Antibodies Market Size (2022 to 2027)

As per our research report, the global antibody market size was valued at USD 145.7 Billion in 2022 and is estimated to grow USD 248.9 Billion by the end of 2027. The market is growing at a CAGR of 11.31% during the forecast period.

Antibodies are proteins that are produced in response to specific antigens by plasma cells. They are also called immunoglobulin. These antibodies are used as diagnostics as well as Therapeutic purposes for several indications of diseases, including but not limited to rheumatoid arthritis, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, psoriasis, Crohn’s disease, macular degeneration, hypercholesterolemia, and asthma. Owing to several product launches, the antibodies market is projected to witness steady growth. Effective harmonization of product development, approval, and registration guidelines in some of the major markets, such as the United States and the European Union, can speed up the research and development of antibody-related products.


A key factor driving the market growth during the forecast period is the increasing demand for therapeutic antibodies, including monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies. Antibodies are also the dominant biopharmaceuticals targeting the abnormal cells specifically. Therefore, many pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies have started to focus on developing advanced antibodies to treat chronic diseases like cancer, rheumatic heart disease, and arthritis.

In managing healthcare costs, high drug costs, particularly biologics, are becoming an increasingly important issue. With increasing spending on health care, the economic burden of cancer and other chronic diseases is growing. Improvements in the production of therapeutic antibodies have reduced the cost of manufacturing, and therefore, the penetration of antibodies has increased in cost-sensitive markets.

Another major factor driving the growth of the antibody market is the patent expiry of several successful monoclonal antibodies shortly. In a couple of years, most antibodies like Avastin, Herceptin, and Mabthera will lose their patents. For example, Herceptin's license (trastuzumab) expired in July 2014 in Europe and will expire in June 2019 in the United States. Many firms, including Amgen Inc., Synthon, Biocon, and Pfizer Inc., are developing trastuzumab biosimilar, which is expected to boost demand for products producing antibodies.


Variations in the antibody techniques have resulted in inadequate reproductive results. No standards for their validation reproducibility across every antibody offering. The variations in the antibodies affect the results of research and clinical screening tests. The development process of monoclonal antibodies is a time-consuming and complicated procedure. One of the main concerns is that technologies require large bioreactors and filtration systems for antibody production, which is expected to impede global antibody market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global antibodies market:

In March 2020, the world health organization announced COVID-19 as the pandemic. The emergence of COVID-19 has positively impacted the antibody market growth during the COVID-19 period. It has boosted the research activities due to the efforts made to understand the dynamics of infection. According to recent reports, most research and reagent manufacturing with personalized medicine will have a better share in the coming years. This is because many companies have mounted their operations for testing and identifying coronavirus. The latest technologies of genetic and molecular testing have been used to test the COVID-19.
