According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, " Biopharmaceuticals Market by Type and Application: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2018-2025, the market was valued at $186,470 million in 2017, and is projected to reach $526,008 million by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 13.8% from 2018 to 2025. North America is anticipated to be the highest revenue contributor throughout the forecast period.
Biopharmaceuticals, also known as biologics, are drugs that are manufactured in living systems, such as microorganisms and animal cells. An array of different biopharmaceuticals is also produced using recombinant DNA technology. The biopharmaceuticals sector is the fastest-growing segment of the pharmaceutical industry.
The global biopharmaceuticals market is anticipated to grow considerably in the near future, owing to various factors, such as strategic collaborations among biopharmaceuticals companies, increase in obesity and sedentary lifestyle among the population, rise in elderly population, and upsurge in prevalence of chronic diseases, such as cancer, globally. However, high costs associated with biopharmaceuticals drug development and a stringent regulatory scenario are key factors expected to impede the market growth. On the contrary, emerging markets, such as India and China, are anticipated to provide lucrative growth opportunities to the market players during the forecast period.
By type, the monoclonal antibody segment accounted for nearly two-fifths share of the global biopharmaceuticals market in 2017. In terms of application, the oncology segment accounted for one-third share in 2017, and is projected to exhibit a prominent growth rate, owing to surge in cancer prevalence globally. By region, North America generated the highest revenue in the global biopharmaceuticals market in 2017.
Key Findings of the Biopharmaceuticals Market:
- The monoclonal antibody segment is anticipated to dominate the global biopharmaceuticals market from 2018 to 2025.
- The metabolic disease application is anticipated to grow with the highest CAGR throughout the forecast period.
- North America accounted for a share of more than two-fifths of the global biopharmaceuticals market in 2017.
- The Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to grow at the highest rate in the global biopharmaceuticals market during the forecast period, followed by LAMEA.
North America held the highest market share in 2017, owing to high prevalence rate of cancer and other chronic diseases, adoption of biologics, and increase in awareness about biopharmaceuticals. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 17.2% during the forecast period, owing to rapid industrialization in the area, increase in disposable income, and upsurge in government initiatives to modernize the healthcare infrastructure.
