Global Oral Biologics Market- Regional Analysis
Among regions, North America is estimated to hold a dominant position in the global oral biologics market over the forecast period. North America is estimated to hold 40.0% of the market share in 2023. The global oral biologics market is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years, driven by the high prevalence of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, favorable health reimbursement, and increased awareness. The increasing prevalence of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is contributing to the growth of the surgical equipment market in the North America region. For instance, according to the American College of Gastroenterology, 2020, about 10% to 15% of people in the U.S. suffer from IBS symptoms annually.
Global Oral Biologics Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe, and the World Health Organization declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.
COVID-19 affected the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting the production and demand of drugs, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to nationwide lockdowns, several countries, such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E., Egypt, and others, are facing problems with the transportation of things from one place to another.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic impacted positively on the global oral biologics market as different types of biologics, such as monoclonal antibodies, were used to treat COVID-19. For instance, sotrovimab, a monoclonal antibody medication, has been conditionally recommended by the WHO for the treatment of mild or moderate COVID-19 in patients who are at high risk of hospitalization. This includes older individuals, immunocompromised people, patients with underlying illnesses like diabetes, hypertension, and obesity, as well as unvaccinated patients.

Global Oral Biologics Market: Key Developments
In January 2020, the European Medicines Agency recommended granting a marketing authorization in the European Union (EU) for oral Rybelsus (semaglutide) for the treatment of adults with insufficiently controlled type 2 diabetes to improve glycaemic control as an adjunct to diet and exercise. Rybelsus is the first glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) receptor agonist treatment, a class of non-insulin medicines for people with type 2 diabetes.
In June 2020, the U.S. FDA approved MYCAPSSA, the first and only oral somatostatin analogue (SSA), for the long-term maintenance treatment of acromegaly patients who had responded to and tolerated treatment with octreotide or lanreotide. The Mycapssa is manufactured by Chiasma, Inc., a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company.
In February 2022, Rani Therapeutics Holdings, Inc., a clinical-stage biotherapeutics company, announced the development of RaniPill HC, a high-capacity oral biologics device. The newly launched RaniPill HC is capable of delivering up to a 500%-plus higher drug payload than Rani’s existing oral biologic capsule.
