The U.S. immunoglobulin market size was worth USD 8.14 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast period. 

There has been a significant rise in the patient population suffering from auto-immune conditions, including primary immunodeficiency, secondary immunodeficiency, Guillain-Barré syndrome, among several others, in the U.S. in the past few years. The increasing clinical trials showing positive results in using immunoglobulins for these disorders are expected to drive the demand in the market.

Major players operating in the market are focused on the development and introduction of novel therapies using immunoglobulins to treat several conditions among the population, which is considered one of the major factors contributing to the U.S. immunoglobulin market growth. The market experienced slower growth due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The hindrance in the plasma collection among the key manufacturers owing to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions and guidelines resulted in the shortage of plasma products, including immunoglobulins.


Subcutaneous Route of Administration Gaining Popularity Among the Healthcare Providers 

There are several clinical benefits of the subcutaneous route of administration of immunoglobulin products, including fewer systemic adverse effects and shorter administration time, among others. The treatment mode has also shown economic advantages to the patients by reducing the overall cost, the number of hospital visits, and improving the quality of life.

Key players are focusing on more SCIg product approvals and launches to cater to the gaining popularity among healthcare providers. 

  • For instance, in June 2023, argenx received the U.S. FDA approval for its SCIg injection, VYVGART Hytrulo, for administration in myasthenia gravis patients.


Growing Prevalence of Auto-immune Disorders Among the Population to Foster the Demand in the Market

The prevalence of autoimmune conditions, inflammatory disorders, and other infectious diseases has grown in the U.S. in the past few years among the adult and geriatric population. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the third most common cause of chronic illness in the U.S. is considered to be autoimmune disorders.

  • According to the 2022 report published by GBS-CIDP Foundation International, the prevalence of CIDP in the U.S. is around 60,000, with a prevalence rate of 0.8-10.3 per 100,000 individuals.

The major market players are focused on developing novel therapies for these chronic conditions for the rising number of patients in the country. These are a few of the prominent factors driving the U.S. market growth.

By Route of Administration Analysis

On the basis of route of administration, the market is bifurcated into intravenous, and subcutaneous.

The intravenous segment dominated the market in 2022. The increased number of product approvals and launches by the key players to cater to the rising demand of the patient population is one of the major factors driving the segment's growth.

  • In February 2021, Pfizer Inc. received U.S. FDA approval for its PANZYGA, IVIg, to treat chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) in adults.  

By Indication Analysis

On the basis of indication, the market is segmented into Guillain Barré syndrome, primary immunodefiency, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, secondary immunodeficiency, multifocal motor neuropathy, immune thrombocytopenic purpura, and others.

The Primary Immunodeficiency (PI) segment accounted for the largest U.S. immunoglobulin market share in 2022 and is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing number of patients suffering from the condition in the country and the higher penetration of Ig therapies are major factors contributing to the segment growth.

By Form Analysis

On the basis of form, the market is bifurcated into liquid, and lyophilized.

The liquid segment held the highest share in 2022 and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. The higher number of liquid immunoglobulin products available for administering various chronic conditions in the country, with increased adoption among healthcare providers, are prominent factors contributing to the segment’s growth. Moreover, the robust efforts of market players to introduce liquid solutions for the treatment of various conditions is another prominent factor expected to augment the adoption of these products in the U.S.

  • For instance, the U.S. FDA accepted the resubmission of GC Biopharma’s Biologics License Application (BLA) for its GC5107B (IVIg) for the treatment of primary humoral immunodeficiency (PI).
