Biosimilar Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026

Global Biosimilar Market Outlook - 2026

The biosimilar market reached a value of US$ 7.7 Billion in 2020. This market is currently being driven by a number of factors such as patent expires of blockbuster biological drugs, lower prices, rising prevalence of chronic diseases, and cost-saving initiatives from governments and third-party payers. Catalyzed by these factors, the market is expected to witness strong growth during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end-use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Biosimilar Market Report 2021

Biosimilars, also known as follow-on biologics, refers to a biotherapeutic product which is highly similar to a reference biologic drug. It is produced using living organisms or cells and has a complex molecular structure. When the patent of a biologic drug expires, manufacturers resort to the approval from the regulatory authorities so as to start the production of biosimilars. For being labelled as a biosimilar, a biological drug should be proved similar in terms of quality, safety and efficacy. In comparison with generic drugs, biosimilars are expensive as their production process is more complex and requires higher investment in research and development.

Global Biosimilar Industry Drivers/Constraints:

  • Over the years, the patents of several blockbuster biologic drugs have expired and a number of blockbuster drugs are further expected to lose patent protection in the coming years. This is expected to provide tremendous opportunities for biosimilar manufacturers in the near future.
  • Cost-saving initiatives undertaken by governments and third-party payers have encouraged the use of biosimilars over branded biologics, thereby propelling the demand of biosimilars.
  • Some of the other factors bolstering the demand for biosimilars include cost-effectiveness, rising prevalence of chronic diseases (such as autoimmune diseases and cancer) and growing geriatric population.
  • There are some factors hampering the biosimilars market growth. This includes negative perception from physicians, patent extensions, lower price differential compared to small-molecule generics, etc.

Key Question Answered in this Report

The global biosimilar market size was valued at US$ 7.7 Billion in 2020.

According to the estimates by IMARC Group, the global biosimilar market is expected to witness strong growth during 2021-2026

The rising prevalence of chronic diseases, along with the continuous patent expiry of numerous blockbuster biologic drugs represent some of the key drivers for the global biosimilar market.

The introduction of numerous initiatives by several government agencies for promoting the adoption of biosimilars over branded biologics represents one of key trends in the global biosimilar market.

Sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had led to the delayed clinical trials for biosimilars due to the rising focus on the production of effective vaccines against coronavirus infection, thereby negatively impacting the market for biosimilars.

On the basis of the molecule, the market has been bifurcated into Infliximab, Insulin Glargine, Epoetin Alfa, Etanercept, Filgrastim, Somatropin, Rituximab, and Follitropin Alfa. Currently, Infliximab holds the majority of the total market share.

On the basis of the indication, the market has been divided into autoimmune diseases, oncology, diabetes, blood disorder, growth deficiency, and female infertility. Among these, autoimmune diseases represent the largest segment.

On the basis of the manufacturing, the market has been classified into in-house manufacturing and contract manufacturing. Among these, in-house manufacturing exhibits a clear dominance in the market.

Region-wise, the market has been classified into the United States, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Japan, India, South Korea, and others, where Italy dominates the global market.

The key companies in the global biosimilar market are Novartis, Pfizer, Teva, Celltrion, Merck & Co, Samsung Bioepis, Eli Lilly, Biocon, Dr. Reddy's Laboratories, Amgen and Boehringer Ingelheim.
