DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 27, 2018--The “Biologics Global Market Opportunities And Strategies To 2021” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global biologics market was worth $221 billion in 2017 and is essentially segmented into monoclonal antibodies, therapeutic proteins and vaccines.

Biologics are very large complex molecules manufactured in a living system such as microorganisms, animal cells or plant cells. They are produced using the recombinant DNA technology and are composed of sugars, proteins, nucleic acids or a combination of these substances. In 2017, 12 biologics were approved in the USA, 10 in European Union and 7 in Japan.

There are over 1000 biologics under development which will drive the biologics market in the future. Cancer is the therapeutic area with maximum number of biologics under development and Alzheimer’s has the least number.

The number of biosimilars being approved is on the rise and is likely to affect the overall growth of biologics market globally, by expanding the market, but also by reducing average pricing. Currently, the ratio of biosimilars to biologics sold is quite similar in European Union (EU) and the USA (4% biosimilars and 96% biologics). In Japan and India, the proportion of biosimilars is higher in these markets, almost 13-19%, compared to EU and the USA.

    Scientists developed new tool for open exchange of biomaterials

    A new easy-to-use legal tool that enables open exchange of biological materials was launched. The OpenMTA is a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) designed to support openness, sharing and innovation in global biotechnology. Material Transfer Agreements (MTAs) provide the legal frameworks within which research organisations define terms and conditions for sharing their materials – everything from DNA molecules to plant seeds to patient samples.

    The First FDA-approved Digital Pill — What It Means for Pharma

    Last year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved what is perhaps the boldest use of digital technology in healthcare: a pill that is integrated with an ingestible sensor that captures information about whether the patient has complied with her medication regimen. A patient ingests the pill and it sends the data to a patch worn on her torso, which adds various physiologic measures. From there the information is wirelessly sent to a mobile phone app, allowing both the patient and her physician to track how the patient is using and responding to her medication.
