Global Oncology Biosimilars Market: Snapshot
The global oncology biosimilars market is predicted to benefit immensely with the rising demand for affordable therapies for cancer. This is because cancer is presently the costliest health affair in terms of both diagnosis and treatment. Pharmaceutical companies worldwide are hard-focused on developing biosimilars and generic medicines to combat cancer at all stages and also for the treatment of the disease.
Oncology biosimilars are similar versions of oncology biologics that are manufactured by different companies and have been officially approved for cancer treatment. Biosimilars are cost-effective molecules with the same efficacy and potency as the original reference biologic. The relatively easy manufacturing of biosimilars and the license to manufacture biosimilars after the expiration of original reference biologic is acting in favor of the global oncology biosimilars market.
On the down side, complex infrastructure needed for the development of biosimilars and lengthy process for the approval of biosimilars is providing headwinds to the market’s growth.
A report by Transparency Market Research estimates the global oncology biosimilars market to expand at an outstanding 27.5% CAGR between 2017 and 2025, for the market to become worth US$17,478.2 mn by the end of 2025 considerably up from its evaluated worth ofUS$2,100 mn in 2016.
G-CSF Drug Class Segment Gains from Patent Expiration of Original Biologics
The report studies the global oncology biosimilars market based on a few parameters. The segments into which the oncology biosimilars market is divided depending upon drug class are G-CSF, monoclonal antibody, and hematopoietic agents. In 2016, the G-CSF segment dominated the market in terms of revenue, and the segment is expected to lead until the end of 2025.
