MEA Monoclonal Antibodies Market Size (2023 To 2028)

The size of the Middle East and Africa monoclonal antibodies market was worth USD 3.82 Billion in 2023 and estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 12.95%, to reach USD 7.03 Billion by 2028.

Monoclonal is a class of antibodies with the identical progeny of a hybridoma, derived by cell division from a single ancestral cell.


The growing demand for personalized medicine is a vital factor responsible for developing therapeutic antibodies to provide targeted therapies, as each individual responds differently to a particular treatment. Furthermore, the advantages associated with using monoclonal antibodies for therapeutic purposes, including reducing adverse effects, homogeneity, specificity, and large-scale production, contribute to significant market growth. Moreover, increasing research collaborations to develop a strong drug portfolio is an important factor that is expected to drive the MEA monoclonal antibodies market growth during the forecast period.

In addition, government initiatives aimed at enabling the cost-effective production of monoclonal antibodies are expected to foster the emergence of this sector during the forecast period. For example, the National Institute of Standards and Technology's Biologic Manufacturing Initiative provides scientifically sound regulatory guidance to ensure the efficient and safe manufacture of protein therapies and help biopharmaceutical manufacturers deliver high-quality protein drugs for a low-cost region-wide. In addition, technological advancements in immunoassay offer a growth opportunity in the market.

The growing number of coronavirus cases increases the need for precise treatment options, leading to the development of monoclonal antibodies and, therefore, would help the monoclonal antibody market grow significantly in the years to come. Unlimited production and identification of specific clones against a particular antigen make this a unique product designed with ease in laboratories.

The growth of the MEA monoclonal antibodies market would be challenged by the high cost involved in developing therapeutic monoclonal antibodies, the threats associated with counterfeit drugs, and the legal regulations required for the identification of molecules are important factors limiting the growth of the market.


A disadvantage of drugs formulated from monoclonal antibodies is that they are particular in nature and have limited purposes. This is because they interact with cells and do not penetrate them. To some extent, this has hampered the global monoclonal antibody market. Another difficulty in using monoclonal antibodies is that they have to be injected, unlike small molecule drugs.

The production and maintenance of infrastructure are expensive and often difficult, especially in low-income, underdeveloped countries.

Regional Analysis

Saudi Arabia is the most dominant regional market in the monoclonal antibody therapeutics market in the Middle East and Africa. It can be attributed to the presence of a well-established healthcare infrastructure. In addition, its large patient population base, well-established reimbursement policies, high disease awareness, government support for infection control and management, increasing incidence of lifestyle-associated diseases, and increased investment in R&D activities by the government for cancer contributes to the growth of Middle East participation.

The United Arab Emirates monoclonal antibodies market is predicted to showcase a lucrative growth rate. The market is growing due to the significant growth in the life sciences industry and the availability of funds from the government and non-government sectors for clinical diagnostics.


GlaxoSmithKline plc, Novartis AG, Pfizer Inc., Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., Eli Lilly and Company, Seattle Genetics, Bristol-Myers Squibb, F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd., and Biogen Inc. are expected to account for the majority of the MEA Monoclonal Antibodies Market share during the forecast period.
