The "Biologics Market Global Briefing 2017" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The global biologics market is expected to reach around $291 billion in 2020. This can be attributed to the increasing evidence of positive responses to treatment with biologics, availability of advanced diagnostics increasing the treatment population, and rising government initiatives for the research and development of biologics globally thereby increasing the acceptance of the products in the market and increasing amount of patient population using the biologics.

The biologics industry comprises companies manufacturing biological products that are derived from genetically modified proteins and human genes. Biologics products include a wide range of recombinant therapeutic proteins, gene therapy tissues, somatic cells, vaccines, and allergenics. These products are isolated from natural sources such as human, animal, and microorganisms by biotechnological methods and other cutting-edge technologies.
