Biosimilars or follow-on-biologics are the “copied” and licensed versions of those reference biologics that have undergone patent expiration. Biosimilars development and validation with reference biologics is a crucial aspect of the overall development process. Regulations for biosimilars play a vital role in maintaining the viability and balance between original and biosimilars products. Various regulatory authorities such as EMA and FDA actively regulate the biosimilars commercialization and development.

The market is driven by factors such rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes supplement the growing demands of pharmaceutical drugs, especially for the high priced patented drugs. However, the market growth is limited by the high cost of reference products increases the financial burden on patients as well as reimbursement service providers. The lack in economies of scale due to lower demand is a factor that results in these high costs. Furthermore, the growth of the biosimilars market is hampered due to the lack of regulatory guidelines, consumers brand preferences, reluctance of physicians to prescribed biosimilars and the high capital required for research and development. Countries from the European Union presently dominate the market owing to the favorable government regulations in this region. North America biosimilars market is currently witnessing restrictions due to the flexible and ineffective regulations.

Manufacturers are the most important stakeholders for the biosimilars; pharmaceutical companies are largely focusing on the development of novel pharmaceuticals, especially for the blockbuster drugs. However, patent protections and availability of other intellectual rights are protecting these formulations from imitation. In such scenario, the pharmaceutical companies are shifting their focus over the development of biosimilars and for that these companies are adopting approval and clinical trials strategies.

Most of the lucrative products in biosimilars industries are monoclonal antibodies, G-CSF erythropoietin and peptide. These products are currently commanding the biosimilars market and have received approval for commercialization in many geographies. Companies manufacturing these biosimilars are achieving economies of scale in the market; thus, receiving cost advantage in a price sensitive market. Further advancement in technologies would lead to the development of more competent biosimilars, such as Insulin and these biosimilars would outperform the existing biosimilars.

The companies that launched biosimilars in 2011 are generating high revenues by providing low cost biosimilar products. Growing awareness and low cost are the factors driving the market growth for monoclonal antibodies and human growth hormone biosimilars in current market.
