Region :Global | Report ID: FBI100578 | Status : Ongoing



In January 2019, the FDA approved the third ever oncology biosimilar called Ontruzant (trastuzumab-dttb) of Samsung Bioepis which is a Herceptin referencing biosimilar trastuzumab, indicated for the treatment of multiple forms of cancers such as gastric cancer. The incidences of cancer cases are rising worldwide, exerting pressure on the financial resources of the individual diagnosed. The treatment of cancer using biologic drugs is being increasing, due to the high effectiveness of the drug and comparatively lesser side effects, however biologic drugs are expensive, leading to greater treatment costs per patient. The high cost coupled with the patents of many of these biologic agents expiring has led to the innovation of biosimilars of the biologic agents. Biosimilars are very comparable to their reference products but due to their size and complexity, are not entirely identical. But the products are clinically as effective and safe as the innovator biologic agents. Biosimilars thus represent greater cost savings but they are subjected to the regulatory agencies approval and require more training for the clinician handling it. According to the estimates by The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the direct medical costs for cancer in the US in 2015 were approximately $80 billion. This has led to increased negative scrutiny on treatments which only achieve marginal benefits. The growth for the biosimilars is also expected to fuel by the expiration of the patents of a large number of biologics. These factors are expected to contribute to the considerable and fuel the growth of the global oncology biosimilars market.

One of the key driving factors for the global oncology biosimilars market is the increasing prevalence of various forms of cancers and the associated need of highly effective and precise treatment options. With wrong and imprecise treatment, which is also expensive, the patient also faces an increased burden of cost.
