Download Sample   Reports Overview

The global biosimilar market is estimated to be valued at $83,836.40 million by 2028, surging from $14,477.30 million in 2020, at a noteworthy CAGR of 24.90%.

Impact Analysis of COVID-19 on the Biosimilar Market

The global market for biosimilar is estimated to experience a negative growth amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Disruptions in supply chain and limited manufacturing facilities across the globe have hit the supply chain and it is impacting the businesses and workers engaged in it. Moreover, delaying in approval of US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for biosimilars and clinical trials during the COVID-19 situation are some of the elements that are hindering the market growth. Also, most of the biosimilar drugs are under the pipeline of slow pace of R&D, negatively affecting the global market.

Global Biosimilar Market Analysis

The enormous growth of the global biosimilar market is mainly attributed to increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes and cancer. Also, drugs of chronic diseases are very costly; therefore, the demand for affordable biosimilars has increased and thereby driving the growth of the biosimilar market. Furthermore, increasing research and development activities in the biosimilar industry are some of the factors are fueling the market growth.     

High investment cost associated with biosimilars along with their complexities are some of the aspects that may create a negative impact on the market during the forecast period.

The increasing demand for biosimilars because of patent expiry of several branded biologic drugs in the upcoming years is one of the factors that brings new opportunities in the market. Therefore, the need for biosimilars has increased which will provide tremendous opportunities for manufacturers of biosimilars in the near future. These are some of the elements that may further lead to lucrative market opportunities in the market in the upcoming years.      

Global Biosimilar Market, Segmentation

The global biosimilar market is segmented based on product type, application, and region.

Product Type:

The type segment is further classified into monoclonal antibodies, recombinant hormones, immunomodulators, anti-inflammatory agents, and others. Among these, the monoclonal antibodies type sub-segment is anticipated to have the fastest growth as well as dominant share and surpass $29,987.30 million by 2028, with an increase from $4,889.80 million in 2020.
