Biologics are complex molecules manufactured through cell culture recombinant DNA technology. Biologics additionally comprise recombinant insulin, growth hormone and monoclonal antibodies for treating conditions such as cancer and autoimmunity. Also known as follow-on biologics or subsequent entry biologics (SEBs), biosimilars are to biologics what generics are to branded drugs; they lower healthcare expenditures. This report anticipates that the global biologic drugs market will jump to over $220 billion by 2019.
The study describes the emergence of biologics and biosimilars and their potential role in shaping the future of the global healthcare industry. The study analyzes the changing dynamics of the pharmaceutical market and provides insight into the regulatory pathways for branded pharmaceuticals and biologics, patent expirations, business strategies, clinical trials and drug applications.
Biologics, also known as biopharmaceuticals, can be categorized into three main modalities: therapeutic proteins, monoclonal antibodies and vaccines. Most of the biologic drugs marketed so far are recombinant therapeutic protein drugs, which are used to relieve patients suffering from chronic diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, infertility and cystic fibrosis. Globally, the U.S. commands 43% of biologics sales, followed by the E.U. (21%) and Japan (9%).
Key biologics and biosimilars are covered by the report, including Humira (Adalimumab), Remicade (Infliximab), Lantus (Insulin Glargine), Levemir (Insulin Detemir), Privigen (Immune Globulin Intravenous), Aranesp (Darbepoetin Alfa), Enbrel (Etanercept), Herceptin (Trastuzumab) and Remicade (Infliximab). Moreover, this report examines companies that are actively developing and marketing biologics and biosimilars in the world. Detailed tables and charts with sales forecasts and marketshare data are also included.
