Biosimilars or follow-on biologics are generic versions of the biopharmaceutical products. These are developed following the patent expiry of an original molecule. Biosimilars have the same biological properties as original drugs and target the same diseases. They have many similarities but are not identical to the reference biopharmaceutical product.
The spending on the global monoclonal antibody (mAb) biosimilars market to grow at a CAGR of 4-7% during the period 2015-2020.
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global monoclonal antibody (mAb) biosimilars market 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of mAbs. The report also considers the revenues generated from the sales of drugs that are expected to be launched during the forecast period. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
One trend spurring growth is the emergence of biosimilars. At present, it has been observed that due to the increase in geriatric population, the prevalence of chronic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, cancers, and metabolic disorders, has increased. As a result, Biosimilars will play a major role in this scenario. The increased sales of biosimilars are expected to pull down the sales of biologics during the forecast period.
According to the report, one driver that will lead to the growth of this market is the rise in number of patent expiries. A biosimilar can be developed only after the patent expiry of the original product . Many first-generation biopharmaceuticals have expired or will expire during the forecast period. For instance, the patent of drugs such as Rituxan/MabThera, Remicade, Herceptin, Humira, Avastin, Synagis, Erbitux, and Lucentis are expected to expire during the forecast period.
