Biopharmaceuticals and Biomedicine Market Introduction

Biopharmaceuticals has emerged as one of the key segments holding immense growth potential within the healthcare sector. Rising demand for effective treatment and rise in per capita healthcare expenditure has led to double digit revenue growth for industry players in recent years. The industry offers especially lucrative growth opportunities, since most of these products still have low penetration rate among the populace. The market is set to gain further traction, with evolving treatment archetypes and rapid technological innovation such as cell therapy and regenerative medicines.  The global biopharmaceutical and biomedicine market was valued at over US$ 185 Mn in 2015, accounting for over 23% share of overall pharmaceuticals market and is expected to gain further market share in the near future. Major pharmaceutical companies are focusing on increasing investments in the biopharmaceuticals and biomedicine market, as the industry has yielded higher return on investment compared to generic drugs market. Thus, the biopharmaceuticals and biomedicine market is characterized by rapid rise in consolidation.

Expected Commercialization of Biologics is Creating Favorable Growth Environment for Biopharmaceuticals and Biomedicine Market

Biopharmaceutical and biomedicine market growth correlates highly with per capita healthcare expenditure, healthcare amenities, and R&D spending on development of new products. Global healthcare spending rose by 1.7% Y-o-Y in 2016. Also, there has been a spurt in incidence rate of chronic diseases worldwide. The combination of the two aforementioned factors leads to growth in demand for biopharmaceutical drugs. Though, price of these drugs are comparatively higher than generic drugs, strong demand from end users has led to rapid increase in sales of biopharmaceutical and biomedicine drugs. Development of new concept drugs along with expected commercialization of pipeline drugs is set to further spur biopharmaceuticals and biomedicine market growth. Though industry is gaining significant traction worldwide, high operational costs, stringent regulatory compliances, and supply chain complexity are major challenges for stakeholders.
