The size of the Latin America Biologics market is estimated to be growing at a healthy CAGR during the forecast period.
Biologics are drugs that are processed through biological processes and can be tailored to target a specific area of the human body.
The rising incidence of chronic diseases in Latin American countries, the growing number of COVID-19 cases, and the rising demand for biologics are majorly promoting the growth rate of the Latin American biologics market.
The Latin American biologics market is further expected to be driven by such factors as increased capital investment by major market players coupled with increased support and initiatives from governments of various countries around the world for the development and implementation of biologics, the increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases and the growth in demand and preference for innovative drugs.
Several new biotechnology companies receive funding from government agencies. Many companies are investing heavily in the development of organic products. Currently, more than half of the drug candidates at the discovery stage are biologics, such as proteins, peptides, and monoclonal antibodies. Biologics are expected to contribute about half of the revenue generated by the top 100 pharmaceuticals in the coming years. Emerging markets also offer room for innovation. Biopharmaceutical and biotechnology companies in these emerging markets are investing heavily in research to develop innovative molecules. The growing demand for corrective treatments for fatal diseases, such as cancer and diabetes, highlights the need for drug research and development. Hence, the demand for biosafety test kits for effective testing and quality control.
Additionally, factors such as the growing cancer burden, the rigorous efforts of key market players to develop novel biologic therapeutics, and growing investments for the R&D activities are expected to favor the market to grow further. Growth in the incidence of obesity and higher acceptability for the new biological therapies are factors that help the growth rate of the market climb further. The rising adoption of inactive lifestyle changes, increasing middle-class population, and rapid urbanization are expected to provide room for the market to grow.
However, strict regulatory policies and heavy investments required for R&D are a few factors limiting the biologics market growth in this region. The biologics drugs are highly complicated and need to maintain and control throughout the development and production procedures; this concerned factor is expected to impede the market growth. Lack of awareness on biologics among physicians and specialists will inhibit the market growth to a small extent.
The management of the global life cycle of biologics, including biologic therapies and vaccines, is complex, and there is a lack of harmonization/alignment between drug regulatory agencies globally. Not only do regulations for post-approval changes vary globally, but the time it takes for the drug regulatory agency to review and approve changes also differs from country to country. This creates challenges for the regulated biopharmaceutical industry, as change cannot be implemented globally. This results in complexity for the manufacturer and the coexistence of "variants" of the product on the market. More importantly, this complexity translates into delayed access to innovation, increased drug costs, and, ultimately, supply constraints.
Impact of COVID-19 on the Latin American Biologics Market:
The World Health Organization (WHO) has officially declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic. A combination of established pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies, as well as players in the biologics safety testing market, have stepped forward to contribute to research efforts around the world by providing biologics to develop safety testing kits and tests, trails for the manufacture of treatments and vaccines that target infection caused by the novel coronavirus.
The various initiatives of these market players and the use of a wide range of biological products and services in COVID-19 research have helped researchers better understand the coronavirus. Therefore, COVID-19 has had a positive impact on the biologics market to some extent; as vaccine manufacturing is expected to increase due to COVID-19, bacterial safety testing will measure quality assurance important to ensure patient safety.
This research report on the Latin America Biologics market has been segmented & sub-segmented into the following categories.
By Biologics Manufacturing:
By Disease Category:
Geographically, the biologics market in Latin America is fragmented, and only the largest countries, such as Argentina and Brazil, are attractive to international suppliers of organic products. Therefore, these leading countries are leading the manufacturing and marketing in the region.
Businesses have been drawn to the promise of expanding local economies in the first decade of this century, a skilled and cheap workforce, the rise of generics, strong coverage government regulation of drugs, and weak patent control (now in a more sophisticated and regularized era). But the strong local pharmaceutical industry has had to contend with large multinationals for many years, and in many cases, local companies have formed regional business groups. Local businesses, which historically only served markets in their home country, have consolidated and expanded to other Latin American countries.
Booming organic products industry in Latin America, with its own research, development, production, and marketing capabilities. The top three biologics-producing countries in Latin America are Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico. Due to its population and the size of the market, Brazil leads the biologics process.
KEY MARKET PLAYERS:
Gilead Science, AbbVie, Merck & Co, Novo Nordisk, Biogen, Pfizer, CSL, Shire, Johnson & Johnson, Allergan Plc., Samsung biologics, Medly, and Astellas Pharma Inc. are some of the companies playing a crucial role in Latin America biologics market.
