Trastuzumab Emerges as In-demand Therapeutic Drugs Type

Based on the type of therapeutic drugs, the global HER2 antibodies market has been segmented into five major classes, viz. Trastuzumab, Ado-trastuzumab emtansine, Lapatinib, Everolimus, and Pertuzumab. Trastuzumab (Herceptin) is the first approved in the U.S. in 1998, and remains the gold standard for HER2-postive breast cancer. In 2016 too, Trastuzumab accounted for the most substantial chunk of the market at 62.1% shares terms of revenue. However, Tykerb is likely to emerge as a significant threat given its oral bioavailability. Growth in incidence of breast cancer and rise in cost burden for its treatment can drive the market during forecast period. Trastuzumab account for the prominent share in the HER2 antibodies market. However due to the high cost of products the market for the HER2 breast cancer is restraining the market during the forecasted period. However the market for HER2 antibodies is experiencing entry of large number of new drugs in the market. Few have already arrived and other more promising drugs are on their way to launch in this market 

North America and Europe to Remain Most Lucrative Regions

The market in North America and Europe is expected to dwindle during the forecast period due to maximum top selling brands in these regions will be encountering by their exclusivity and patent expiry.

Revenue-wise, U.S. is the most profitable country-wide market for HER2 antibodies in North America while Rest of Europe and Germany market leading the Europe region. Asia Pacific may provide an attractive market for the HER2 antibodies because of increasing per capita income and increasing healthcare facilities and awareness regarding HER2 breast cancer. Besides Asia Pacific, Latin America region too is focusing on increasing the diagnostic rate of cancer and types of cancer, which will be driving the market during forecast period. Governments and non-profit organizations in the region are striving to spread awareness and control the increasing incidence rate of breast cancer. The incidence of cancer in Middle East & Africa is currently lower than that in countries such as the U.S. and the U.K. However, it is expected to rise rapidly compared to other regions in the next decade.

Novartis AG, Genentech Inc., Abnova Corporation, Pfizer, Inc., InvivoGen, Biocon Limited, Bio-Techne, and Celltrion, Inc. are some of the key companies currently operating in the global HER2 antibodies market.

Global HER2 Antibodies Market: Overview
