A report published in July 2016 by visiongain predicts that the worldwide biological drugs market will be worth $248.2 billion in 2020. That revenue forecast and others appear in Biologics Market Trends and Forecasts 2016-2026: Evaluation of Therapeutic Segments Including Monoclonal Antibodies, Insulin, Fusion Proteins, Interferons and Gene Therapies; Prediction of Leading National Markets (US, Japan, EU5 and BRIC); Investigation of Top Products Including Humira, Remicade, Lantus and Enbrel; and Assessment of R&D Including Sirukumab and NurOwn.

Visiongain is a business information publisher and consultancy in London, UK. Its purpose is to help companies and other organisations assess the potentials of industries and markets.

Arshad Ahad, a senior pharmaceutical industry analyst in visiongain, said: “Biologics are crucial for the treatment of many serious chronic disorders such as cancer, diabetes, hepatitis and autoimmune diseases. These effective but highly complex therapies come at a price, with some treatments costing more than $75,000 a year. They are able to generate multi-billion dollar revenues, with biologics representing eight out of the top ten best-selling drugs in 2015.

“The emergence of biosimilars is set to disrupt this market - although they can be a positive or a negative influence, depending on how companies adapt to their presence. Patents on many leading biologics are due to expire during the forecast period of our report, and payers are eager to cut costs in the face of declining healthcare budgets. As such, this is a crucial period in the history of the global biologics market, one which will determine its long term future.”

Along with revenue prediction for the overall world market for biologics, Visiongain’s new investigation shows forecasts from 2016 to 2026 for 13 individual submarkets:

• Protein therapeutics, with sub-forecasting for insulin, other recombinant hormones, plasma and recombinant coagulating factors, interferons, enzyme replacement and other agents
• Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs)
• Fusion proteins
• Regenerative medicine, with sub-forecasting for stem cell treatment, tissue engineering and gene therapy
• Vaccines.

In addition that work shows revenue forecasts for 18 leading products, including Lantus, Humalog, Avonex, Rebif, Humira, Remicade, Herceptin and Enbrel.

The analyses also show overall biologic revenue forecasts to 2026 for 11 national markets:

• United States
• Japan
• Germany, France, United Kingdom, Italy and Spain (EU5)
• Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC).

That updated study examines the worldwide biological drugs industry and market, exploring news, data, progress, trends, companies, products, R&D and biosimilars. Companies the work studies include Amgen, Bayer, Eli Lilly, GSK, Johnson & Johnson, Merck & Co., Novartis, Novo Nordisk, Pfizer, Roche and Sanofi.
