Improvement in Healthcare Infrastructure to Positively Impact Biologics Market Growth


The global biologics market is anticipated to touch USD 285,520.4 million at a 6.95% CAGR between 2018-2023, states the new Market Research Future (MRFR) report. Biologics, simply put, are made from materials that come from various living organisms such as animals, humans, and microorganisms, namely yeast or bacteria. Usually, biological products are manufactured, utilizing biotechnology methods or other advanced technologies. They are widely used for providing effective treatment for several complex diseases, including Crohn’s disease, psoriasis, and rheumatoid arthritis, which have limited options for treatment. Biologics is transforming the manner in which physicians treat common conditions that have plagued people for years. They have many potential benefits as; theoretically, they can be customized for hitting particular gene targets in the body. 


Numerous factors are propelling the Biologics Market. Such factors, as per the new Market Research Future report, include unremitting research & development activities, rising regulatory convergence, increasing government initiatives in the healthcare sector, growing demand as well as higher acceptability of innovative therapies, and the emergence of orphan drugs and personalized medicines. Additional factors propelling the growth of the biologics market include improvement in the healthcare infrastructure, rapid urbanization, increasing awareness about the efficacy and performance of biologics, and increasing prevalence of different chronic diseases. 


On the contrary, stringent government regulations, higher supervision, the rise of biosimilars, pricing pressures coming from regulators, difficulty to manufacture biologics, and side effects such as breathing problems, chest pain, change in blood pressure, and gastrointestinal complications are factors that may hamper the biologics market growth during the forecast period. 


Market Segmentation 


The Market Research Future report offers a complete segmental analysis of the biologics market based on manufacturing, disease indication, and product. 


Based on product, the global biologics market is segmented into gene therapy, growth factors, vaccines, interleukins, monoclonal antibody, and others. Of these, the monoclonal antibody segment will have the largest share in the market during the forecast period for its increasing use for enhancing the body’s immunity system. 


Based on disease indication, the biologics market is segmented into diabetes, cancer, psoriasis/psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and others. Of these, the cancer segment dominated the market in 2018, but rheumatoid arthritis is predicted to dominate the biologics market over the forecast period for the rapid approval of different drugs by the regulatory agencies.
