Summary

Table of Contents

Biological drugs are typically derived from living cells and are used in the prevention and treatment of various diseases such as cancer, blood disorders, auto-immune diseases and other medical conditions. Biological drugs have more complex structures compared to that of conventional drugs. These are highly sensitive and more difficult to characterize and develop. A biological drug typically has around 250 in-process tests during manufacturing compared to around 50 tests for a conventional drug.

The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and growing geriatric population are the major drivers of the global biological drugs market. In addition, various government associations are also supporting the growth of the biological drugs market. Furthermore, advancements in biomedical science hold immense potential for the growth of the biological drugs market. However, high costs of biological drugs and patent expiry of blockbuster drugs impede the growth of the biological drugs market. Moreover, risks of adverse effects associated with biologic injectable drugs are also inhibiting the growth of the biological drugs market.

In terms of geography, North America dominates the global biological drugs market. This is due to increasing use of biological drugs for the treatment of diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and other chronic diseases. In addition, various government associations are promoting the usage of biological drugs in North America. For instance, in 2012, the American College of Rheumatology – an organization that advances rheumatology through education and research – recommended biologic agents and disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.

In Europe, the biological drugs market is growing due to increasing aging population in the region. According to a UN report, elderly people accounted for 23.2% of the total population in Germany in 2000, and the number is expected to reach 33.2% by 2025. Aging can lead to certain disorders such as age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma, which require biological drugs for their effective treatment.

Low manufacturing costs in Asia attract biopharmaceutical companies to invest in the region. For instance, Lonza – a Switzerland-based biotechnology company – invested around US$ 350 Mn in Singapore and India, in order to encourage biological activities.
