Strategic Research Collaborations to Surge the Market

Increased focus of pharmaceutical giants on the development of novel monoclonal antibodies has paved way for major research collaborations which is emerging as a key monoclonal antibody therapy market trends. Owing to the increasing adoption of monoclonal antibody, new manufactures wants to enter the highly competitive market and strategic collaborations can be a useful tool to sustain their position. For example, October 2017, Incyte and MacroGenics, Inc. announced partnership and license agreement for MGA012, an investigational monoclonal antibody of MacroGenics, Inc.


Significant Investment in the Development of Novel Monoclonal Antibody Therapeutics to Boost the Market

monoclonal antibody therapy is a fast emerging as extraordinary tool for the treatment of chronic diseases, especially cancer. Preference towards monoclonal antibody therapy is gradually rising, resulting in blockbuster sales of few products such as Herceptin, Humira and others. This, in turn, has encouraged major pharmaceutical companies for huge research investment in the field of monoclonal antibodies. For example, AstraZeneca, a pharmaceutical giant is conducting phase II clinical trial on Tezepelumab for the treatment of atopic dermatitis. Similar pipeline potential candidates are expected to drive the monoclonal antibody therapy market growth.

Apart from this, green signal form the regulatory authorities for the entry of biosimilars of existing mAb products are further fostering the market value for monoclonal antibody therapy.

Rising Prevalence of Chronic Diseases to Favor the Market

The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases is one of the major factors augmenting this market. Chronic diseases pose a major burden across the globe which is propelling the governments of various countries to put efforts in reducing the cost burden pertaining to their spread. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 6 in every 10 adults in the U.S. are suffering from a chronic disease, leading to an annual healthcare cost of US$ 3.5 trillion. Furthermore, unmet patient needs and improving health reimbursement policies for therapeutic monoclonal antibody used for treatment of chronic diseases are projected to fuel the monoclonal antibody therapeutics market growth.


Stringent Regulatory Policies for the Approval Process to Hamper the Market

Despite promising results for monoclonal antibodies in the treatment of various diseases, the long and strict regulations for approval and launch will be a major hindrance on the monoclonal antibodies therapy revenue. Many clinical studies are withdrawn mainly due to failure to meet the stringent regulations and end results framed by the regulatory authorities. In addition to this, monoclonal antibody therapy side effects are other factors restricting the market growth.
