Furthermore, bevacizumab (42%), trastuzumab (38%), and rituximab (20%) have experienced significant uptake since their launches. Furthermore, as healthcare infrastructure improves, more doctors tend to access and prescribe biologic drugs, contributing to an increased demand for inexpensive interchangeable biosimilars. Additionally, governments are often pushing for lower drug prices and are incentivizing the use of biosimilars, which is also expected to drive the growth of the market in the coming years

Global Interchangeable Biosimilars Market: Key Takeaways

  • Market in North America to have the highest growth in the near future
  • A high growth rate is expected for the retail pharmacy segment
  • Market in Asia Pacific to grow at the highest rate

Intensifying Research and Development in the Pharmaceutical Industry to Boost Market Growth
Pharmaceutical companies are increasingly investing in R&D to develop biosimilars that are more cost-effective, have fewer side effects, and are more efficient substitutes for existing drugs. This is expected to result in increased demand for interchangeable biosimilars in the coming years. It was observed that in 2019, USD 82 billion was spent on research and development by the pharmaceutical industry. With a peak of 59 new drugs approved for sale in 2018, the number of new drugs approved between 2010 and 2019 increased by 58%. In addition, the cost of developing biosimilars is much lower than the cost of developing new drugs since the research and development for biosimilars is based on existing drugs. This makes investing in R&D for biosimilars a more attractive option for pharmaceutical companies. As a result, the demand for interchangeable biosimilars is expected to grow in the near future.

Global Interchangeable Biosimilars Market: Regional Overview
The global interchangeable biosimilars market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa region.

The FDA's Increasing Approval of Biosimilars to Boost Market Growth in North America
The interchangeable biosimilars market in the North American region is estimated to garner the largest revenue by the end of 2035. Diabetes is a chronic disease that requires ongoing treatment. Biosimilars are more affordable than branded drugs, and they can reduce the cost of treating diabetes, making them an attractive option for patients in the North American region. With the region's growing diabetic population, physicians and doctors are increasingly prescribing biosimilars for diabetes treatment, which is expected to drive regional market growth.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that there are 37.3 million people living with diabetes in the US, representing 11.3% of the population. 28.7 million people are diagnosed with diabetes, including 28.5 million adults. Moreover, it was the first interchangeable biosimilar to be approved in the U.S. for diabetics. The FDA approved the first interchangeable biosimilar to Viatris' Semglee (insulin glargine-yfgn), referencing the long-acting insulin Lantus for diabetes, in July 2021. Moreover, the government's laws promoting generic drug competition and reducing prescription drug costs are expected to further increase market growth in the region. For instance, in April 2021, President Biden signed into law two bipartisan bills to support generics and biosimilars as alternatives to branded medicines in order to reduce prescription drug prices.

The Growing Number of People Suffering from Chronic Diseases to Drive the Market Growth in the Asia Pacific Region
The interchangeable biosimilars market in the Asia Pacific region is estimated to garner the highest CAGR by the end of 2035 owing to the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases in the region, which is driving the demand for more affordable treatments. There are about 74 million Indians over 60 who suffer from chronic diseases, and noncommunicable diseases account for 52% of all deaths. With 76 million diabetics living in India and another 133 million projected by 2045, India has the highest percentage of diabetics in the world. The lower cost of biosimilars makes them an attractive option for healthcare providers, as they offer options to their patients at a lower cost. Furthermore, the interchangeable nature of biosimilars means that patients can switch between different versions of the same drug, which offers them more flexibility and choice. This increased access to affordable treatments is expected to drive regional market growth. Additionally, governments in the region are providing incentives to the manufacturers to encourage the production of biosimilars. This is further aiding the growth of the global interchangeable biosimilars market in the Asia Pacific region. Make an Inquiry Before Buying this Report @ 4047
