Biological products are complex molecules derived from genetically modified proteins and human genes. These products include a wide range of recombinant therapeutic proteins, vaccines, and monoclonal antibodies. Biological products are isolated from natural sources such as human, animal, and microorganisms by biotechnological methods and other cutting-edge technologies. Monoclonal Antibodies are a class of antibodies that are derived from a single ancestral cell. These antibodies have a tendency to grow indefinitely and are very particular for a location in the body derived from a single clone. Further, biological drugs have aided in the treatment of many serious and chronic illnesses to a great extent. These are one of the most available advanced therapies and are able to treat cancer, ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other autoimmune diseases.

Market Overview                                                                                 

Biological Market is estimated to reach $XXX billion by 2026; growing at a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2026. In 2017, 12 biologics were found to be approved in the USA, 10 in European Union and 7 in Japan. There found over 1000 biologics under development, which will drive the biologics market in the future. Cancer is the therapeutic area with a maximum number of biologics under development and Alzheimer's has found the least number. Of the total biologics market across the globe, Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) accounted for a share of xx% in 2018 and were worth $xx billion. Increasing R&D pertaining to the development of therapeutic mAbs coupled with supportive government initiatives is expected to drive the monoclonal antibodies market growth over the forecast period.

The monoclonal antibody (mAb) market has changed rapidly in the past 5 years: it has doubled in size, becoming dominated by fully human molecules, launched bispecific molecules, and faced competition from biosimilars. With the launch of the first therapeutic monoclonal antibody in 1986, the class of monoclonal antibodies has expanded substantially so that, today over 74 monoclonal antibodies based therapeutics have been approved for commercial use across the globe.

An increasing prevalence of lifestyle and chronic diseases, growing elderly population, loss of patent exclusivity of the leading biologic drugs, growing demand and higher acceptability for innovative therapies, and rising capital investments in various R&D programs are going to boost the growth of the global biological market. Further, government initiatives supporting the usage of biological drugs also drive the growth of the market. Moreover, the high costs of these drugs and the possibility of adverse effects may hinder the growth of the market. Furthermore, technological advancements and cost reduction might provide significant scope for the market in future years.

Key Developments

  • In Feb 2019, AbbVie and Eisai announced that they had received approval for an additional indication of HUMIRA®, a fully human anti-TNF-α monoclonal antibody, for the treatment of hidradenitis suppurativa (HS).

  • In Feb 2019, Roche announced that the US FDA had approved Herceptin Hylecta™ (trastuzumab and hyaluronidase-oysk), as a monoclonal antibody for subcutaneous injection for the treatment of certain people with HER2-positive breast cancer.


The global biological market is categorized into product type and geography.

By product type: Therapeutic protein (Enbrel, Neulasta, Avones, Lantus, Rebif, Humalog, Epogen, Levemir, Victoza, Aranesp, Betaseron, Neupogen, Eylea and Others), monoclonal antibody (Humira, Remicade, Rituxan, Avastin, Herceptin, Lucentis, and Others) and vaccine (Prevnar 13, Gardasil, Fluzone, Varivax, Cervarix, and Others).

The monoclonal antibodies segment accounted for the maximum share in 2018 because of higher usage of this category of drugs in different therapeutic areas of treatment. Vaccines are anticipated to show significant growth during the forecast period due to the growing adoption of vaccines in the treatment of infectious diseases in the near future.

By geography: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW). The North American healthcare biologics market dominated the global market and is estimated to show a similar trend during the forecast period. Furthermore, the presence of well-established companies, like Johnson & Johnson, Bristol-Myers Squibb, AbbVie Inc., and other key players, is making biologics more accessible in the United States.

They key companies involved in this market include Baxter International Inc., Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Merck & Co., Inc., Amgen Inc., Biogen Inc., GlaxoSmithKline Plc, Novartis AG, Eli Lilly and Co., Pfizer Inc., and Abbott Laboratories, among others.
