Immunotherapy Drugs Market Research Competitive Analysis – The global immunotherapy drugs market has massive growth opportunities in both developed and developing regions. The introduction of a novel product with affordable drug cost is expected to increase the competition among the market players.

Many companies are currently focused on approvals, collaboration, and development of new products related to immunotherapy drugs due to increased demand for this therapy to treat various disease types.

For instance, in January 2019, BioNTech AG inked a deal with MAB Discovery GmbH to acquire MAB’s operational antibody generation unit. The acquisition helps to expand BioNTech, which is a top privately-held developer of RNA-based therapeutics, further into monoclonal antibody (mAb) development to develop new treatments that combine technologies of both the companies. In June 2018, Novartis received European approval for Aimovig, for the prevention of migraine in adults, and it works by blocking the activity of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) that is involved in migraine attacks. It is the only treatment specifically designed for migraine prevention to be approved in the European Union. In addition, other leading vendors are focusing on hugely investing in R&D activities to develop new products to obtain a high share in the market.
