The global immunoglobulin market size was USD 16.24 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 17.58 billion in 2024 to USD 35.85 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 9.3% during the forecast period (2024-2032). Increasing prevalence of primary and secondary immunodeficiency and others is increasing demand for available treatment options globally. Along with this, amplification of anti-inflammatory properties and immunomodulatory properties of immunoglobulins has also surged the adoption of these blood products for disorders such as primary immune deficiencies, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, myasthenia gravis, and others.

  • According to a research article published by NCBI in 2020, there are 6 million people around the world affected by primary immunodeficiency diseases.

Apart from this, increasing number of patients suffering from auto-immune disorders such as Guillain-Barré Syndrome and IVIG and clinical efficiency of immunoglobulin for the treatment of these conditions lead to increased demand for these products. Thus, the rising prevalence of key disorders along with advancement in treatment options with this product is resulting in an increased demand and adoption rate of the product and alternatively assisting in the immunoglobulin market growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively affected the global market owing to a decline in plasma collection and the shortage of plasma for fractionation. As a result, the key players were facing difficulties while collecting plasma for plasma fractionation. Hence, the patients were having difficulties accessing plasma products, including immunoglobulin due to a significant shortage. This led to decreased adoption and hindered the growth of the market.

  • Rising Preference for Subcutaneous Ig Products Among the Population

The most preferred route of administration is the intravenous route. However, due to a number of limitations such as higher cost, requirement of trained professionals, risk of systemic infection, and requirement of extended duration of observation post-injection are limiting the adoption rate of intravenous dosage formulas.

On the other hand, certain benefits such as better patient compliance, less painful processes, and a large number of injection sites for multiple doses are improving the patient’s preference toward the subcutaneous route of injection.

Along with this, rising number of launches by major players and ongoing research and development activities are fueling the adoption rate of Subcutaneous Immunoglobulin (SCIG) during the study period.

  • In September 2023, Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited received the approval of the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare for its CUVITRU, subcutaneous immunoglobulin, for patients with agammaglobulinemia or hypogammaglobulinemia in Japan.

  • Rising Prevalence of Key Immunodeficiency Disorders Led to the Growth of the Market

The global prevalence of a number of immunodeficiency disorders, including leukemia, hepatitis, multiple myeloma, and others is increasing the demand for treatment options such as immunoglobulin.

  • According to a 2023 article published by the Immune Deficiency Foundation, common variable immune deficiency (CVID) is one of the most commonly diagnosed primary immunodeficiencies in adults, which occurs in 1 in 25,000 individuals.

Apart from this, according to a number of research articles, it was reported that the geriatric population is more prone to auto-immune disorders. Therefore, the rising geriatric population is resulting in a large patient pool suffering from this disorder, thus requiring treatment.

  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the U.S. in 2021, around 3,000 to 6,000 people developed Guillain-Barré Syndrome and people older than 50 are at high risk of developing Guillain-Barré Syndrome.

This, along with increasing investments by major players for introducing advanced therapy options and adopting a number of organic and inorganic growth strategies foster product adoption.

  • In January 2022, Kedrion S.p.A. and LFB formed an industrial cooperation agreement in order to increase the availability of immunoglobulins for patients in France.

Henceforth, prevalence coupled with the introduction of advanced products by major players has been instrumental in the market growth during the study period.

  • High Cost Associated with the Therapy is Responsible for Limiting the Market Growth

Growing prevalence of immunological disorders along with the increasing number of drugs in the market for treatment is fueling the market growth. However, the high cost associated with this therapy is limiting its adoption significantly.

  • According to a 2023 article published by AmeriPharma Specialty Care, a single IVIF infusion can cost around USD 100 to more than USD 350 per gram. The patients need to undergo 4-5 infusions per month which will cost an average of around USD 42,000 per month.

These high costs coupled with limited insurance coverage in South Africa is restricting the adoption rate of plasma products.

  • In South Africa, the high cost of these products limits the use of this therapy as a treatment option. This has led to a policy that the additional benefits of this product must be carefully evaluated on a case-by-case basis to justify the additional costs.

Thus, higher costs associated with inadequate reimbursement policies are expected to restrict the adoption of these products among the global population.

Immunoglobulin Market Segmentation Analysis

By Route of Administration Analysis

Higher Demand for Intravenous Products Led to Segmental Dominance

Based on of route of administration, the market is segmented into intravenous and subcutaneous.

The rising prevalence of primary immunodeficiency disorders among the population is resulting in an increasing demand for intravenous products in the market. The clinical benefits of intravenous products, including rapid exposure and minimal volume constraints among others are some of the primary factors for the dominance of this segment over subcutaneous products.

On the other hand, the subcutaneous segment is expected to grow with the highest CAGR owing to several factors, including significant cost reduction, self-administration capabilities, and a comparatively lower risk of systemic infections. The rising focus of national organizations to increase the availability of the subcutaenous products is another major factor contributing to the growth of the segment.

  • For instance, The National Blood Authority of Australia announced that Xembify, a 20% concentration SCIg product, will be available for order via the Australian Red Cross Lifeblood from January 2024.

By Indication Analysis

Increasing Usage of these Drugs for Primary Immunodeficiency Resulted in the Segmental Dominance 

Based on indication, the market is segmented into primary immunodeficiency, secondary immunodeficiency, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, Guillain-Barré syndrome, immune thrombocytopenic purpura, multifocal motor neuropathy, and others.

The increasing prevalence of several primary immunodeficiency diseases and the rising adoption of plasma products for these disorders are some of the attributable factors that led to the segment's dominance.

  • For instance, according to a database by the National Health Service (NHS), it was reported that the consumption of IG in 2019-20 was around 1,404 kgs for primary immunodeficiency.

The Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP) segment is anticipated to grow with a significant CAGR during the study period. Strong focus of key players for introducing advanced drugs in the treatment of CIDP is one of the major reasons for the growth of the segment.

The rising prevalence of disorders such as Guillain Barré Syndrome, Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), Multifocal Motor Neuropathy (MMN), and others, is a key factor driving the segment growth. Furthermore, the increasing R&D focus of market players to develop and introduce novel products for the treatment of these disorders are some of the factors supporting the growth of these segments.
