Plant-derived Biologic Drugs Market: Introduction

  • The growing demand for human biologics has not been met by recent production platforms based primarily on mammalian cell culture, owing to limited scalability and prohibitive cost. Technological developments in plant expression vector development, glycoengineering, and downstream processing have established plants as a better alternative for the production of biologics.
  • The first plant-made biologic was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of the Gaucher’s disease. The approval of plant-based biologic has sparked innovations in the field.
  • In 2012, Israel-based company, Protalix, received the FDA approval for ELELYSO, a plant-based drug, which is a recombinant version of the glucocerebrosidase (GCD) enzyme deficient in Gaucher’s disease patients. This establishes that plant cells have the ability to produce complex, functional human proteins.

Key Drivers of Global Plant-derived Biologic Drugs Market

  • Plant-based biologics is anticipated to be a major commercial biotechnological development. Several global manufacturers who have technical expertise and core competencies are undertaking R&D to develop and manufacture plant-based biologics.
  • Increase in the number of chronic diseases and consequent demand for biologics has propelled the global market in recent years and its demand is expected to remain high during the forecast period. These biologics offer new mechanisms of treatment with application in a wide range of diseases, including immune disorders and cancer.
  • The global plant-derived biologic drugs market is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period, owing to the rise in the number of chronic diseases, technological innovations related to the production of plant-derived biologics drugs, low manufacturing cost, and easy storage of plant-based biologics.

Advantages of Plant-based Biologics to Drive Global Market

  • Plant expression platforms offer advantages over human biologics. Features such as high scalability, low cost, increased safety, and eukaryotic protein modification make plant-based biologics a promising tool for drug development. Novel transient expression vectors are being developed that allow the production of therapeutics and vaccines at unprecedented speed to control bioterrorism attack and potential pandemics.
  • One of the potential advantages of plant-based systems is their ability to lower the cost of production for recombinant biologics. Low cost of manufacturing have been widely considered for the production of plant-based biologics, as they forego the need for capital investments.
  •  Plant-based proteins can also function as biocontrol agents of foodborne pathogens. This further exemplify the potential utility of plant-based protein production.
