Monoclonal Antibody Therapeutics Market Share Value Projected to Expand by 2018-

Posted by rushi007 on June 17th, 2019

Different monoclonal antibodies with unique mechanism of actions have been approved over the past few years, which work on immune checkpoints such as CTLA-4, PD-1, and PD-L1. Manufacturers are focusing on developing drugs belonging to various classes in order to treat variety of diseases ranging from cancer to rare diseases. Monoclonal antibody coupled with chemotherapy agents is becoming a viable treatment option to treat various cancers. For instance, in 2017, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved Darzalex (daratumumab) in combination with pomalidomide and dexamethasone for the treatment of patients suffering from multiple myeloma, who have received two prior therapies. These factors are expected to support growth of the market over the forecast period.

Market Dynamics

Monoclonal antibody therapeutics market is driven by active research and development of novel drugs and significant number of new drug launches and approval. There are number of monoclonal antibodies in the pipeline, which are expected to receive approval over the forecast period. For instance, manufacturers such as Amgen, Inc., Novartis International AG, Merck & Co., Inc., Eily, Lilly, and Company, and others have several monoclonal antibodies in the pipeline. Moreover, efforts of manufacturers to increase number of indications (oncology) for monoclonal antibodies is further expected to boost the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in June 2018, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), expanded the indication of pembrolizumab (Keytruda) to include recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer with disease progression on or after chemotherapy.

Increasing Drug Approvals And Launch Of Novel Monoclonal Antibodies For Treatment Of Various Diseases Such As Cancer Are Expected To Boost The Market Growth Over The Forecast Period

Frequent approvals of novel monoclonal antibodies and their launches in developed economies are expected to significantly drive monoclonal antibody therapeutics market growth over the forecast period. Key players in the market have gained regulatory approvals and have launched their therapies in the market. For instance, in 2015, the U.S. FDA approved Darzalex, developed by Johnson & Johnson for multiple myeloma. Similarly, in 2017, Roche was granted accelerated approval to TECENTRIQ (atezolizumab) from the U.S FDA for the treatment of people with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma (mUC) who are not eligible for cisplatin chemotherapy.

Ongoing Research And Development Of Monoclonal Antibodies For Various Diseases Is Expected To Boost Growth Of The Global Monoclonal Antibody Therapeutics Market

Introduction and supposed success of monoclonal antibodies and other biological products has spurred the interest of manufacturers in these therapies. Success of popular monoclonal antibodies such as Avastin, Herceptin, and Rituxan (revenues as US$ 6.8 Bn, US$ 7.1 Bn, and US$ 5.9 Bn respectively in 2017 globally) has spurred manufacturers’ interest in these therapies. Leading manufacturers have resorted to boosting pipeline through various ways such as merger and acquisitions, partnerships, and collaboration. In 2016, AbbVie acquired Stemcentrx thereby adding rovalpituzumab tesirine (Rova-T) to its product portfolio in oncology segment. Cancer treatment (various types) is at the forefront of the monoclonal antibody research as leading manufacturers are focused on development of these drugs for cancer treatment. For instance, manufacturers such as Amgen, Inc. (e.g. Tezepelumab and others) and Novartis International AG (e.g. Ofatumumab and others) have several monoclonal antibody programs in the pipeline.

However, high costs of these products is a major concern (in regions with underdeveloped reimbursement facilities) in the healthcare system and to address this problem, manufacturers have resorted to biosimilar products. Biosimilars cost much lower than the original products as the cost of development is relatively low. Majority of the available monoclonal antibody therapeutics (cancer treatments) are expected to lose patent protection by 2020 and some by 2025. For instance, drugs such as Herceptin and Avastin are expected to lose patent protection in 2019. These factors are expected to restrain the global monoclonal antibody therapeutics market growth over the forecast period.
