Biosimilars are the officially approved versions of biopharmaceutical products that are manufactured by a different company following the patent expiry of the original product. Also known as subsequent entry biologics or follow-on biologics, biosimilar drugs are gaining popularity around the world as the development cost of biosimilars is not as high as the original drug.

Also, the regulatory frameworks put in place by many countries are aiding the growth of biosimilars in the world, not to mention the lengthy tendering process of biologics that delays the actual launch of the drug. Meanwhile, biosimilar tendering is becoming more and more commonplace as the uptake of biosimilars is growing.
