Biosimilars are biological products that are very similar to a reference biologic and for which there are no clinically meaningful differences in terms of safety, purity, and potency. Biosimilar products are made of complex molecules with high molecular weight produced through genetic engineering in living cells. Biological products can include a wide range of products including vaccines, blood components, gene therapy, tissues, and proteins, like monoclonal antibodies and cell signaling proteins. Biosimilars are just similar because they do not have to be exact copies of the active ingredient, as with small molecule drug generics. Biosimilar therapy is a very effective way of treating diseases like cancer, rheumatoid, Crohn’s disease, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, plaque psoriasis and many autoimmune disorders.

Market Determinants

Due to the lower cost, biosimilar medicines are expected to achieve higher demand and drive the growth of the global biosimilars market. The major factor for the growth of global biosimilars market is increasing awareness about biosimilars between the patients and doctors. Additionally, growing number of patients with chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes are driving the demand for effective biological medicines. The growth of the biosimilars market is hampered due to the lack of regulatory guidelines, consumer brand preference, reluctance of physicians to prescribed biosimilars and the high capital required for research & development. Moreover, high manufacturing cost and difficulty of production, with unclear regulatory policies are some major restraining factors for global biosimilars market. On the other hand, development of bio-better drugs in the emerging economies would act as a future growth opportunity to the biosimilar market.
