According to the recent report by IMARC Group, entitled “Biosimilar Market Size: Global Industry Trends, Share, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026”, the biosimilar market reached a value of US$ 7.7 Billion in 2020. Biosimilars, also known as subsequent entry biologics (SEBs) or follow-on biologics, refer to FDA-approved biotherapeutic products which are similar to their reference biologics. Biosimilars can only be manufactured after the patent of the reference product expires. The demand for biosimilars has been increasing in recent years as they help in reducing the overall cost of the treatment for a variety of chronic diseases including cancers, autoimmune diseases, kidney failure, diabetes, CVDs, haematological disorders, infectious diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, growth hormone deficiency, etc.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
Recent patent expiries of a large number of blockbuster biological drugs such as Humira, Remicade, MabThera, Enbrel, etc. have majorly boosted the growth of the biosimilar market. Another major growth-inducing factor is ageing population which has led to a rise in the prevalence of non-communicable diseases. Further, high costs of innovator biologics, especially monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), have encouraged several governments across the globe to promote the usage of biosimilars. For instance, European countries like the Netherlands, Denmark and Germany have established strategic models for discount pricing and introduced numerous incentive programs. Apart from this, biosimilars do not require extensive marketing as the safety and efficacy profile of biologics has already been established. This has resulted into the low cost of these drugs in comparison to their branded counterparts, in turn, spurring their demand worldwide. Catalyzed by these factors, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 21% during 2021-2026.
Global Biosimilar Market Summary:
- Based on molecule type, Infliximab represents the largest segment, accounting for the majority of the total market share. Other major categories include Insulin Glargine, Epoetin Alpha, Ethanercept, Filgrastim, Somatropin, Rituximab and Follitropian Alfa.
- On the basis of type of manufacturing, the market has been bifurcated into in-house and contract manufacturing.
