|Global Biologics Market—Companies-to-Action|
|Biopharma Companies are Increasingly Collaborating with CDMOs, CROs, and Digital and Medical Equipment Companies for Biologics Discovery and Development|
This study on the "Global Biologics Market: Companies-to-Action" presents an overview of the global biologics landscape with an emphasis on the top 10 leading bio-pharma companies in the market. The study highlights the shifting focus and investments of bio-pharma companies towards biologics discovery and development, which is attributed to the growing demand for innovative therapies as well as the loss of patent exclusivity of the leading pharma products. Across therapy areas, oncology and diabetes emerge as the key contributing segments alongside immunology and cardiovascular diseases. Several small- to mid-sized companies are increasingly focusing on oncology and immunology segments which have high unmet needs and higher acceptability for innovative therapies. Furthermore, across the biologics sub-segments, monoclonal antibodies (mAb) and bioengineered vaccines are amongst the highest contributing segments, with most companies having a strong focus on developing a mAb pipeline. On the other hand, cell and gene therapy are expected to show a strong potential, especially across the rare diseases market, with leading companies like Amgen, Sanofi, Pfizer, etc., investing in molecules in the early stages of clinical development. These molecules, if approved, have the potential of becoming key blockbuster products, propelling the market by more than 20% in the next few years. To achieve expertise across specific therapy areas and biologic sub-segments, bio-pharma companies collaborate with Contract Development and Manufacturing Organizations (CDMOs), Contract Research Organizations (CROs), and digital and medical equipment companies that provide access to innovative proprietary technologies for research and development activities and to optimize the manufacturing process of complex biologics. Alongside industry and academic research collaborations, companies are also focusing on partnering with IT players such as IBM Watson, Intel etc., which provide technologically advanced solutions for conducting clinical trials to support complex drug manufacturing processes, thus creating integrated business models in addition to the above mentioned strategic analysis, a detailed biologic product pipeline, and a SWOT analysis of the key players has been undertaken.
