Biosimilars Market by Product (Recombinant Non-Glycosylated Proteins (Insulin, Filgrastim, Interferons, rHGH), Glycosylated (Monoclonal Antibodies, EPO), Peptides (Glucagon, Calcitonin)) & Application (Oncology, Blood Disorders) - Global Forecast to 2020
Various factors have contributed to the rise in demand for biopharmaceutical products such as biologics and biosimilars. Some of these factors include the rising pressure to reduce healthcare expenditure, growing demand for cost-effective alternatives, growing burden of chronic diseases, and growing aging population. Biosimilars are similar versions of their corresponding patented biologic drugs, and are similar with regards to their quality, safety, and efficacy. The global biosimilars market is estimated to be worth $2.29 billion in 2015, and is poised to grow at a CAGR of 22.1% during the forecast period.
This report studies and analyzes the biosimilars market by product and application. On the basis of products, the biosimilars market is segmented into recombinant nonglycosylated proteins, recombinant glycosylated proteins, and recombinant peptides. The recombinant nonglycosylated proteins market is further segmented into insulin, granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), interferons, and human growth hormones; whereas, the recombinant glycosylated proteins market is further segmented into erythropoietin, monoclonal antibodies, and follitropin. The recombinant peptides market is segmented into calcitonin and glucagon. The recombinant glycosylated proteins segment is expected to witness the highest growth rate owing to the increased demand for monoclonal antibodies in the treatment of cancer (oncology), autoimmune disorders, blood disorders, and infectious diseases. On the other hand, the recombinant nonglycosylated proteins segment accounts for the largest share of the market in 2015. The insulin segment is poised to be the fastest-growing segment of the recombinant nonglycosylated proteins market, growing at a CAGR of 28.1% from 2015 to 2020. Growth in this insulin market is attributed to the rising incidences of diabetes; ongoing patent expirations of biologic drugs such as Lantus, Humalog, and Novorapid; and the cost effectiveness of insulin.
On the basis of applications, the biosimilars market is segmented into oncology, blood disorders, growth hormonal deficiency, chronic and autoimmune disorders, and other applications (female infertility, hypoglycemia, myocardial infarction, postmenopausal osteoporosis, and chronic kidney failure).
Geographically, Europe is expected to account for the largest share of the global biosimilars market in 2015 followed by Asia-Pacific. The large share of the European region can be attributed to the rising budgetary pressures to reduce healthcare expenditure, increasing aging population, growing demand for cost-effective alternatives, rising incidences of various diseases, and government initiatives. On the other hand, stringent regulatory environment, high manufacturing complexities and costs, and high-entry barriers are considered to hinder its market growth.
The global biosimilars market is highly competitive, with a large number of big and small market players. As of 2014, the global biosimilars market was dominated by Sandoz International GmbH (Germany), Hospira, Inc. (U.S.), and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (Israel). Furthermore, new product launches and expansions are the major strategies adopted by major players to achieve growth in this market.
