The global oncology biosimilars market was worth US$ 408 Million in 2018. Cancer is a lifestyle disease that occurs due to the abnormal growth of cells and may result in the formation of a tumor. At present, most of the effective cancer treatments are based on biological drugs, also known as biologics, and include targeted therapies as well as immunotherapies. These drugs are produced using living organisms, including bacteria, yeast, and animal or plant cells, and require complex manufacturing processes and long development time. As a result, the cost of these drugs is relatively higher, which adds to the expense of cancer treatment. To lower the price of treatment, the interest in the development of biosimilars of branded oncology biologics has been increasing. These biosimilars are highly similar to the reference biologics in terms of effectiveness and safety and can help in significantly reducing the expenditure on cancer treatment due to their lower cost.

Over the years, the rising number of geriatric population and environmental degradation have increased the prevalence of cancer across the globe. These factors, along with the inflating cost of cancer care, have increased the burden on healthcare systems worldwide. Consequently, governing authorities in numerous countries are promoting the uptake of biosimilars as a cost-containment measure. For instance, the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) has developed information materials for physicians and patients to educate them about biosimilars. Apart from this, the availability of affordable medication has also been associated with earlier and wider therapy use as well as improved patient access. Besides this, oncology biosimilars can also increase industry competition, owing to which they have the potential to drive down the prices of biological drugs further. Some of the other growth-inducing factors for the market include approaching patent expiries of branded biologics and increasing research and development (R&D) activities by biosimilar manufacturers. Looking forward, the publisher expects the market to reach a value of US$ 6,268 Million by 2024, registering a CAGR of 57.6% during 2019-2024.
