DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Biosimilar Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global biosimilar market size reached a value of almost USD 16646 million in the year 2020. The biosimilar market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 18.1% between 2021 and 2026 to reach a value of almost USD 48681 million by 2026.

A biosimilar is a biologic that is similar to a previously approved biologic drug (known as a reference product) by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In terms of safety, purity, and potency, biosimilars are very comparable to the reference product, but clinically inactive components may differ significantly.

The FDA may require manufacturers to complete a clinical trial adequate to show safety, purity, or potency in one or more purposes. The reference product is licenced, and the biosimilar seeks licensure when approving biosimilars. It can only be produced when the patent on the reference product has expired.

The market is driven by factors such as the rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes that supplement the growing demands of pharmaceutical drugs, especially for the high-priced patented drugs and the increasing demand for biosimilars for their cost-effectiveness.

The industry will also benefit from the expiration of patents on a number of biologic drugs and a number of blockbuster drugs that are still to lose patent protection in the forecast period, as this will increase future opportunities for biosimilar makers.

Regulatory approvals and other regulations favouring the adoption of biosimilars in different countries is also a major driving factor in the biosimilars market. Governments and third-party payers are implementing cost-cutting programmes to encourage biosimilars instead of branded biologics, which boosts the biosimilar market.

Another aspect driving market expansion is the growing geriatric population. The market is predicted to increase because of rising FDA approvals and increasing research and development activity by key manufacturers focused on oncology.

Global market growth is boosted by an expanding product pipeline and new product launches. With favourable government laws and flexible and ineffective regulations, several countries dominate the market.
