The biosimilars industry is sector ed into peptides, recombinant glycosylated proteins, recombinant non-glycosylated proteins, and others. In 2009, biosimilar recombinant non glycosylated protein products formed the largest industry sector since blockbuster biopharmaceutical drug such as interferon, human growth hormone-Somatropin, insulin and G-CSF; belong to this class and have wide range of applications.

Overburdened due to rising healthcare costs, ageing population, expensive drugs and pharmaceutical expenditure, biosimilar industry is getting boost from increasing user acceptance and emerging Indian and Chinese industry s. The major challenge for the biosimilar industry is risk involved with the high investment and possible failure of the drug during development stages. However, opportunities for biosimilar industry is immense, as biologics are going to be off patent by 2015 and an anticipated approval pathway in U.S will open up potentially largest industry . The growth potential of the biosimilars industry is expected to be strong, with patents for a number of second-generation therapeutic proteins (Enbrel, Remicade, Herceptin, etc.) slated for expiry between 2013 and 2019. The global biosimilars industry is highly fragmented with the presence of some leading players such as Biocon, Dr Reddy's Lab, Intas, LG LifeSciences, Ranbaxy, Reliance LifeSciences, Sandoz, Teva, and Wockhardt.

The report titled “” covers the overview, industry size and sector ation of the biosimilars industry . The various drivers and the challenges faced by the industry are also discussed in detail. The competitive aspect of the industry is also highlighted and the key players are profiled with their strategies for this industry .
