As per our research report, the global biosimilars market size was worth USD 6.26 billion in 2021. This figure is forecasted to grow at a remarkable compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 39.39% and reach USD 32.93 billion by 2026.
According to WHO, A biosimilar is a biological product similar to the already licensed reference biotherapeutic product similar to quality, safety, and efficacy. It is the same as the generic drug, but it contains a biological entity. According to the FDA, FDA-approved biosimilars have been compared to FDA-approved biosimilars, known as the reference product. Reference and biosimilar products are large and generally complex molecules produced by living organisms that are carefully monitored to ensure consistent quality. Biosimilars are copies of drugs similar to biological drugs that have already been authorized (biological reference medicine) and are similar but not identical. The Indian Guidelines define "similar biologics" as a biological product/drug produced by genetic engineering techniques and claimed to be "similar" in terms of safety, efficacy, and quality to the reference biologics authorized by the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) for safe use in India. The main reason for the development of biosimilar drugs is the patent protection expiry for many biological medicines.
The cost-effective nature of biosimilars and the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases are major drives of the global biosimilars market growth.
Adalimumab (Humira) for rheumatoid arthritis and trastuzumab (Herceptin) for breast cancer are commonly used biologics. According to WHO, chronic disorders such as Diabetes prevalence have increased faster in low-and middle-income countries than in high-income countries. In 2016, an estimated 1.6 million deaths were directly due to diabetes. Another 2.2 million deaths were due to high blood glucose levels in 2012. Asthma was estimated that more than 339 million people worldwide in 2016. Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally, responsible for an estimated 9.6 million deaths in 2018. Cancer Globally causes about 1 in 6 deaths.
Increasing manufacturing by biopharmaceutical companies globally is another significant contribution to the global biosimilars market growth.
Approximately 100 biopharmaceutical companies are actively involved in the research and development, production, and marketing of biosimilar therapeutic products in India. Rising government initiatives and FDA approval are further expected to add fuel to the growth rate of the biosimilars market. The FDA was given the authority to approve biosimilars, including interchangeable ones, to maintain the biosimilar product's safety, efficacy, and quality.
Furthermore, biosimilars regulations are critical for ensuring the viability and balance between original and biosimilar drugs. Factors such as the rising demand for prescription drugs, especially high-priced patented drugs, contribute to the rising demand for pharmaceutical drugs. Many current biological products, such as Erbitux, Avastin, and Orencia, will see their patents expire, providing an opening for many innovator firms and generic vendors to provide services specifically suited to biosimilars. The demand to cut healthcare spending and the patent expiration of numerous blockbuster products, and a growing number of biosimilar drug approvals by the FDA are expected to drive biosimilars market growth. The launch of new biosimilars, strategic innovations by industry players such as alliances and collaborations, favorable research funding situation, and drug development pressure on pharmaceuticals due to impending patent expiry contribute to the market's rise.
Patient safety and medical efficacy are projected to hamper the growth of the market during the assessment period. The high cost of comparison drugs, on the other hand, limits the market growth by increasing the financial pressure on patients and reimbursement service providers. These high prices are a consequence of a lack of economies of scale owing to reduced demand. Biosimilar costs are not as low as generics due to complex biological production processes for individual biosimilars. The most expensive biologics may cost USD 50,000 a year or more. Biologic drugs are more complex to manufacture than generic drugs. Because it’s not as easy to make a biosimilar drug as it is to make a generic version of a brand-name drug, it is due to most of the drugs are made from chemicals and have a known structure. The aforementioned are some of the factors restraining the growth of the biosimilars market.
Impact of COVID-19 on the global biosimilars market:
The impact of COVID-19 on the Biosimilars market may be significant and has posed a major challenge to pharmaceutical companies focusing on biosimilar development. The reduction in FDA approval of non-COVID therapists during the current pandemic is expected to delay product approvals and launches, hindering the market growth. Also, as most clinical trials have been postponed to combat COVID-19 and minimize infection among participants, most pipeline products show a slow pace of research and development activities.
Also, due to lockdown and travel restrictions across the globe, there is a shortage of supply chains and raw materials that would impact biosimilar production. Thus, due to the aforementioned factors, COVID-19 has a significant impact on the market under study. In the coming decade, there would be an increase in the patent expiry of several existing biological drugs, such as Erbitux, Avastin, Orencia, and others, which would provide an opportunity for many innovative companies and generic manufacturers to offer services tailored specifically to biosimilars. Also, factors such as the cost-effective nature of biosimilars, increasing acceptance and acceptance by various stakeholders in need of diversification of technology and business models, the growing prevalence of chronic diseases is expected to drive the global biosimilars market.
