The international biological drugs market is envisaged to grow at a handsome rate in the next few years. However, it could face challenges in the form of various product parameters, strict regulatory pathways and manufacturing processes, and longer product approvals, although biological drugs have historically shown better approval rates than conventional ones. Additionally, small players could find it difficult to enter the market because of the requirement of high capital expenditure.
Nevertheless, companies could make their presence known in the international biological drugs market by developing new vaccines for severe infections such as those caused by C. difficile and Meningococcal B. The market could also offer rewarding prospects on the back of vaccination programs sponsored by governments. This scenario could be particularly taken notice of in Australia and India. Enormous venture capital investment in biotechnologies is envisioned to create profit-making opportunities in the market.
