Global Biologics Market Size (2024 to 2029)

As per our analysis report, the global biologics market size was worth USD 314.46 billion in 2023 and is expected to exhibit an 8.1% CAGR from 2024 to 2029. The market is estimated to be worth USD 501.78 billion by 2029 from USD 339.93 billion in 2024.


Y-O-Y growth in the incidence of chronic diseases and an increasing number of initiatives from the governments of several countries to develop innovative techniques are driving the growth of the global biologics market.

Biologics have broad applications in targeted therapies and help treat various medical conditions when treatments are unavailable. The increasing acceptability of innovative therapies and rising demand for biological drugs with an increasing number of patent expiries are promoting the demand for biologics worldwide. In addition, gene-based and cellular biologics are major elements in biomedical research. In addition, growing healthcare expenditure and the rising prevalence of promoting promising treatment procedures are contributing to the biologics market expansion.

The rising scale of pharmaceutical companies worldwide is a plus to the growth rate of the biologics market.

Oral products have increased efficacy for various diseases such as Crohn's and rheumatoid arthritis, pulling patients to adopt novel treatment procedures. This is enhancing the growth rate of the biologics market eventually. Furthermore, the rising geriatric population and increasing prominence to lower the cost of treatment procedures are also urging the biologics market growth. Also, people's preference for pills rather than injections is increasing the market's growth rate. Technological advancements are also expanding the growth rate of the market. For instance, Eli Lilly and Pfizer adopted Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) platform to conduct simulation models more effectively in early drug discovery.

Furthermore, launching innovative therapies with the latest technologies is anticipated to set growth opportunities for the market. Reduction in the demand for small molecule drug R&D activities is expected to promote the biologics market growth shortly.


Lack of awareness regarding the utilization of biologics in the research centers and the complex regulatory structure by the government in approving new products are some of the major factors hindering the market's growth rate. In addition, long-term use of biologics leads to specific problems such as changes in blood pressure, gastrointestinal complications, and breathing problems, slowly hampering the market's demand. Furthermore, supervising treatment procedures with biologics requires advanced technologies. This is quietly to restrain the biologics market growth during the forecast period. Furthermore, the absence of skilled people in laboratories to analyze the outcome limits the biologics market's growth rate. The high cost of installing and maintaining laboratory devices impedes market growth. Furthermore, the manufacturing process of biologics drugs is a little complex and remains a significant challenge for the market to grow. Less turnover for clinical trials is declining the growth rate of the biologics market.

Impact Of COVID-19 On the Global Biologics Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted almost every sector in an unprecedented way. The novel coronavirus has been spreading rapidly since the WHO declared it a pandemic. Most people infected by COVID-19 have mild symptoms such as cold, cough, fever, and loss of smell or taste. However, it may yield severe heart failure symptoms, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and others for older people aged 65 to 70. As a result, the Biologics market has a declining growth rate in the initial months of 2020. The market was valued at USD 249 billion in 2019, where it dropped to USD 239 billion in 2020. The primary reason for the declined growth rate is to lock down restrictions and ban flights. As the treatment procedures using biologics are postponed or cancelled, the market shares have reduced suddenly. As a result, the number of patients infected with the coronavirus and getting treatment with biologics is significantly less. This is a significant factor for the market's slow growth rate in 2020. All the activities were resumed in the hospitals and clinics by taking specific measures. All the postponed treatment procedures were resumed in the last months of 2020, along with the treatment procedures using biologics.

Global Biologics Market Analysis By Source

The microbial segment accounted for the largest share of the worldwide biologics market in 2023 and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is because scientists have found various beneficial applications that can be derived from microbial source biologics.

On the other hand, the mammalian segment had a considerable share of the worldwide market in 2023 and is expected to grow at a reasonable CAGR during the forecast period. This is because scientists are doing more research in this field, and soon this source will have the same market share as microbial.

Global Biologics Market Analysis By Product

The monoclonal antibodies segment dominated the biologics market in terms of share in 2023 and is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR during the forecast period owing to their higher usage in different therapeutic areas. Monoclonal antibodies allow the targeting of unhealthy cells without harming healthy cells. These drugs benefit cancer management and treat autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis.

The vaccines segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR in the coming years owing to its usage as a preventative tool in infectious diseases. Currently, when the world is suffering from a deadly virus, there is an immediate need for an effective virus, and biologics will be a key to the development of vaccines.

Global Biologics Market Analysis By Biologics Manufacturing

The in-house segment had a significant global market share in 2023. Manufacturing is a part of the significant steps of biologics production and comprises a substantial share of the biologics market. It has two segments, 'Outsourced' and 'In-house' Companies are opting to manufacture biologics in their plants; thus, In-house dominates the market. Companies are engaged in investing in their bioprocessing capabilities. The companies are investing more in their plants to increase their commercial manufacturing capacity. The rising population has forced the countries to be self-sustained, as in the case of the world pandemic, and there might be problems in supply dependent on others.

Global Biologics Market Analysis By Disease Category

The oncology segment accounted for the largest share of the worldwide market in 2023 and is estimated to grow at a healthy CAGR in the coming years owing to the rising incidence of cancer coupled and to cure it.
