Biosimilar Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024

The biosimilar market reached a value of US$ 3.8 Billion in 2018. 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 further projected to reach US$ 20.2 Billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of nearly 33% during the next five years.

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 Market 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 growth of the biosimilars market. This includes negative perception from physicians, patent extensions, lower price differential compared to small-molecule generics, etc.


Molecule insights:    

On the basis of molecule, the market has been segmented as Infliximab, Insulin Glargine, Epoetin Alfa, Etanercept, Filgrastim, Somatropin, Rituximab, Follitropin Alfa, etc. Currently, Infliximab dominates the market, holding the largest share.

Indication Insights:

Based on the indication, autoimmune diseases account for the majority of the total market share. Other major indications include oncology, diabetes, blood disorder, growth deficiency, female infertility, etc.
