The global cancer monoclonal antibodies market is forecasted to be worth USD 87.43 billion by 2028 from USD 51.16 billion in 2023, registering a CAGR of 11.31% between 2023 to 2028.
Cancer is a severe disease-causing millions of deaths worldwide every year. Cancer starts from a single cell and genetically transforms a normal cell into a tumor cell and gradually spreads to other cells. With the dramatic increase in the number of people affected by cancer, many pharmaceutical players invested in monoclonal antibodies. However, while the drugs treat cancer, chemotherapy agents have adverse side effects on normal and cancerous cells. Therefore, it prompted the increased usage of monoclonal antibodies to treat cancer. Monoclonal Antibodies (mAbs) are mono-specific antibody bodies comprising identical immune cell clones of a single parent cell and directed to specific cellular targets. Thus, monoclonal antibodies are highly customizable due to their nature and can play a crucial role in eliminating cancerous cells while sparing the normal cells during the cancer treatment. Monoclonal antibodies are proven more effective than chemotherapies and drugs for cancer treatment. Monoclonal Antibodies could offer less toxic and more efficient therapeutic alternatives to patients emerging in recent years. Monoclonal Antibodies are used to treat a wide array of autoimmune, inflammatory, and especially cancer.
The rising prevalence of cancer worldwide is one of the major factors driving the cancer monoclonal antibodies market. According to the WHO, cancer is the second leading cause of death globally, registering an estimated 9.9 million deaths, or 1 in 6 deaths, in 2019. Cancer associated with prostate, colorectal & liver is the most common cancer in men, while cancer associated with colorectal, lung, cervical & thyroid cancer is most commonly affected by women. Therefore, the increase in data should inform any national cancer policy, leading to a rise in the percentage of people choosing cancer treatment. In the health sector, cancer is one of the biggest concerns. Therefore, increasing monoclonal antibodies for cancer treatment boosts the market growth.
The growing investments for R&D of genomic studies and increasing progress and preference towards the specificity of monoclonal antibodies to attack cancer further contribute to the cancer monoclonal antibodies market growth. The dramatic increase in cancer patients has led many pharmaceutical players to invest in the cancer monoclonal antibodies market. Increasing investment in R&D of genomic studies, technological advancements in genetic sequencing and target gene selection, and a specificity of monoclonal antibodies to target only the cancer cells with no side effects are some of the market's driving forces. The increased prevalence of cancer is the key driver of the monoclonal antibodies market. With health products in the pipeline, it is expected to grow lucratively in the next five years.
Due to the growing demand, there is a rapid increase in R&D activities of genomic studies. This has led to a rapid rise in the cancer monoclonal antibodies market. In addition, it is also believed that the increase in the prevalence of breast cancer promotes the development of the global cancer monoclonal antibodies market.
However, following regulatory guidelines for cancer-related monoclonal antibodies is a very rigorous process in most parts of the world. The guidelines provide a complete description of the manufacturing processes, including quality, good manufacturing practices, process validation, the potential for degradation, and the need for stability studies. Therefore, globally, there is a strict regulatory scenario like the US FDA, European Medicines Agency (EMA), and Korean FDA. Cancer antibodies also face similar restrictions in gaining approval for monoclonal antibodies in the market. As this is a long process, it is considered one of the main hurdles for this market. The growth of the cancer monoclonal antibodies market is a long period of research and development before clinical trials, the increase in mAbs failures in clinical trials and the high cost of the products defying the market's growth rate.
Impact of COVID-19 on the global cancer monoclonal antibodies market:
The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 pandemic a public health emergency affecting millions of people and spreading to every corner of the world. The pandemic has affected all sectors, including the medical field. During the COVID-19 outrage, the pharma industry was more bothered about developing the COVID-19 vaccine. As a result, cancer monoclonal antibodies' research and development activities have dropped, even though the demand for cancer monoclonal antibodies is stable and high before the pandemic. During the pandemic lockdown, there has been a slight decline in cancer monoclonal antibodies. However, the market position is forecasted to fall in its place by the end of 2021.
