This is enhancing the growth rate of the biologics market eventually. Furthermore, the rising geriatric population and increasing prominence of lowering the cost of treatment procedures also propel the market demand. Also, people's preference for pills rather than injections boosts 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 in early drug discovery effectively.

Launching innovative therapies with the latest technologies is anticipated to set growth opportunities for the market. On the other hand, a reduction in the demand for small molecule drug R&D activities is expected to promote the demand in the biologics market soon.


Lack of proper knowledge over the utilization of biologics in the research centers and the complex regulatory structure of the government in approving the new products are hindering the growth rate of the global biologics market.

Additionally, long-term use of biologics leads to specific problems such as changes in blood pressure, gastrointestinal complications, breathing problems, and others that slowly hamper the market’s demand. Furthermore, supervising treatment procedures with biologics require advanced technologies. This is quietly to restrain the demand of the market. The absence of skilled people in laboratories to analyze the outcome also limits the growth rate of the biologics market. The high cost for installation and maintenance of the devices in laboratories also impedes the demand of this market.

The manufacturing process of the biologics drugs is a little complex, and that remains a significant challenging factor for the biologics market to grow. In addition, 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, dropping 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 canceled, 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 in the biologics 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 continued in the last months of 2020, and the treatment procedures used biologics.

Biologics Market – By Product:

  • Monoclonal Antibodies
  • Vaccines
  • Recombinant Proteins
  • Antisense, RNAi, & Molecular Therapy
  • Others

The monoclonal antibodies segment dominated the global biologics market in terms of share, based on the product in 2021, and is expected to have high growth due 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 vaccine segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth due to its use as a preventative tool in infectious diseases.
