Global Biopharmaceuticals Market Size (2022 to 2027)

As per our research report, the global biopharmaceutical market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 9.2% during the forecast period. The market size was worth USD 210.17 billion in 2022 and is forecasted to be worth USD 326.3 billion by 2027. Companies such as Amgen Inc., AbbVie Inc., Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Eli Lilly and Company, and Novo Nordisk are forecasted to account for a significant biopharmaceuticals market share in the global market during the forecast period.

Disease treatment techniques have been revolutionized using Biopharmaceuticals or biologics because of their efficiency against autoimmune diseases & cancer and better mode of action. Therefore, the healthcare industry is expected to shift from traditional small molecule drugs to Biopharmaceuticals.

COVID-19 has shown a mixed impact on the biopharmaceuticals market.

COVID-19 has a significant impact on every medical industry, likewise biopharmaceuticals. The disruptive effects of COVID-19 have placed enormous strain on the global supply of pharmaceutical products, biologics, and biological preparations. Manufacturing devices and preparative materials such as API, etc., faced a supply shortage due to the crisis in COVID-19. Most of the materials and devices necessary are expected to get delivered on time but are affected due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As most manufacturers are from China, this affected the market growth in all other countries and slowed production. Due to the pandemic crisis still going, it impacted research and developmental activities. Many organizations have held the funds. Researchers, scientists, doctors, and other staff are the most affected set of people by COVID-19.

However, the growth rate of the biopharmaceuticals market is expected to be accelerated as most market participants are involved completely in developing the vaccine for COVID-19 in the near future.

The rising geriatric population prone to neurodegenerative and autoimmune disorders provides a strong business base to the global biopharmaceuticals market.

There is a massive demand for biopharmaceuticals due to the increasing incidence of chronic diseases whose treatment is possible using these drugs. Additionally, the other major drivers contributing to the growth of the global biopharmaceuticals market are the increased geriatric population globally and the rise in the prevalence of chronic conditions. Furthermore, an increase in the occurrence of vulnerable diseases such as cancer and diabetes, growth in obesity and sedentary lifestyle among the population, and growing acceptance of biopharmaceuticals due to their ability to treat previously untreatable diseases are further significantly driving the market growth. According to WHO, cancer is the leading cause of death globally, and diabetic patients are also increasing daily due to lifestyle changes. A sedentary lifestyle leads to several chronic diseases, thus boosting the market growth. Biopharmaceuticals hold the potential to cure the disease entirely and not just the symptoms, hence increasing its acceptance.

Side effects associated with the over-consumption of drugs and the high manufacturing cost hamper the biopharmaceuticals market growth.

High costs associated with the drug development process are significant restraints to the biopharmaceuticals market. The threat of failure of drugs and challenging developments affects market growth. With a price of 100 million USD, it generally takes 5 to 9 years to develop a biopharmaceutical product. This regulatory framework for establishment takes over a lot of work and patience. World Health Organization (WHO) also has set strict approval standards for biopharmaceuticals, which is further estimated to restrict the growth scope of the market to some extent.
