In last few years, there has been rapid progress in the field of science which has led to the emergence of recombinant DNA technology, genome fingerprinting and proteomics. This has increased the knowledge about progression of disease and has enabled the development of novel targeted drugs in their management. Among all targeted therapies, biological drugs have gained considerable momentum in the management of wide range of diseases including cancer, auto-immune, diabetes, and other chronic disorders.
Despite their ability to significantly enhance the survival rates of patients, these drugs are associated with high costs due to their complex manufacturing. The higher costs of these drugs make the therapy inaccessible to majority of patients, thus limiting their market. However, the end of patent exclusivity rights of these drugs open new avenues for the development of biosimilar drugs in the market which share similarity to the branded drug but are priced 15%-30% lower than the originator. The development of biosimilar ensures the availability of therapy to all class of people irrespective of their socio-economic status.
The European Biosimilar market was the first to be established with the approval of Omnitrope in 2006. Since then, there has been influx of biosimilars in Europe for a wide range of therapeutic conditions including cancer, arthritis, blood disorders, auto-immune disorders and others. As of now, Europe has 69 approved biosimilars, out of which 54 are currently available in the market. In past few years, biosimilars have shown increased penetration in the Europe market which is mainly anticipated to its lower price than the originator drug. In addition to this, the physicians in Europe are also becoming familiar with the use of biosimilars, thus driving the growth of market.
Europe will witness patent expiration of several blockbuster drugs including Yervoy, Opdivo, Cimzia, Keytruda and several others which will drive the competition among pharmaceutical companies for the development of cost-efficient biosimilars. Several pharmaceutical companies including Sanofi, Teva Pharmaceutical, Takeda Pharmaceutical, Sanofi, Pfizer and several others are the major biosimilar producing companies in Europe. In addition to this, the rising initiatives by government to aware people and the development of favorable reimbursement policies by companies will further boost the growth of biosimilar market in Europe.
Although there are several parameters driving the growth of market but various factors such as long time taken by bioprocessing of drugs, lack of education and the lack of interchangeability are the major challenges faced by biosimilars to enter the market. Despite this, it is expected that the Europe biosimilar market will see a tremendous growth rates during the forecast period. Several factors such as upcoming patent expiry of novel drugs, increase investment by government as well private companies, increasing awareness among patients, and the rise in prevalence of chronic disorders are going to propel the growth of market for next few years. As per countries, UK is expected to dominate the market due to presence of new technology, facilities for biosimilar production and presence of big pharmaceutical players. Other regions such as France, Germany, Denmark and others are also expected to grow at considerable CAGR rates due to presence of lucrative opportunities.
