Global biosimilars market: Price advantage of biosimilars over biologics

The adoption of biosimilars is increasing significantly, as it is priced 20%-25% less than the originator biologic. Indeed, the high cost of biologics increases the total healthcare costs and reduces patients access these products. A biosimilar is a copy of the biologic, and it has already been authorized for use. The advancements in genetic engineering and a decrease in the scale-up costs for the recombinant proteins have also made it feasible to manufacture the biosimilars at low costs. The cost of biosimilars could be further reduced if the cost associated with the approval of biosimilars can be reduced. This will likely boost the growth of the market.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on cardiovascular and metabolic disorders, “The biologicals will face the patent expiry by the end of 2018. The loss of patent protection paves the way for the emergence of biosimilars in place of biologics in the next five years. Manufacturers like Novartis and Pfizer have already gone into the business of making biosimilars. This will boost the growth of the global biosimilars market during the forecast period.”
