The global biosimilars market is driven by factors such as rising demand for biosimilars due to their cost-effectiveness and growing prevalence of chronic diseases.Moreover, major companies in the market are involved in strategic acquisitions, collaborations, and mergers to sustain their position in the market.For instance, in October 2018, Sandoz, a Novartis division received the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for its biosimilar, HyrimozTM (adalimumab-adaz) for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PSA), juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) in patients four years of age and older, ulcerative colitis (UC), ankylosing spondylitis (AS), adult Crohn's disease (CD), and plaque psoriasis (Ps)Biosimilars Market SegmentationGlobal Biosimilars Market has been segmented based on product, applications, end users, and region.The market, based on product, has been bifurcated into recombinant non-glycosylated proteins, recombinant glycosylated proteins, and recombinant peptides.The recombinant non-glycosylated proteins are further divided into human growth hormone (RHGH), granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (filgrastim), insulin, and interferons.Similarly, the recombinant glycosylated proteins segment is further bifurcated into erythropoietin (EPO), monoclonal antibodies (MABS), and follitropin.Thus, the therapeutic use of recombinant non-glycosylated proteins is broadening as their increased availability and lowered price.For example, according to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), in 2017, approximately 425 million adults aged between 20 to 79 years suffered from diabetes, and this number is expected to rise to 629 million by 2045.On the basis of applications, the global biosimilars market has been divided into oncology, chronic diseases, autoimmune diseases, blood disorders, growth hormone deficiency, infectious diseases, and others.Western Europe has further been classified as France, the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the rest of Western Europe.
