Biopharmaceuticals Are Driving Innovation In Medical Research And Drug Development

The biopharmaceuticals industry entails the development, production, and marketing of drugs and therapeutics produced from biological sources for use in areas including oncology, neurology, cardiology, and metabolic disorders. Biopharmaceuticals such as monoclonal antibodies, recombinant hormones/proteins, gene therapies, and vaccines are manufactured using cutting-edge biotechnological and genetic engineering techniques. They target specific molecular pathways by modifying or regulating gene function unlike conventional chemically synthesized small molecule drugs. Biologics have revolutionized treatments for various chronic and life-threatening diseases.

The global biopharmaceuticals market is estimated to be valued at US$ 457.63 billion in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 9.4% over the forecast period 2024-2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

One of the key trends driving growth in the biopharmaceuticals market is the rising incidence of chronic and lifestyle-related diseases globally. Conditions such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and neurological disorders have significantly increased in prevalence owing to aging populations and changing disease patterns associated with urbanization and sedentary lifestyles. Biologics offer targeted therapies with fewer side effects for management of such hard-to-treat diseases compared to conventional drugs. Their development will continue gaining popularity given the complex molecular nature and etiology of many modern illnesses.

Porter’s Analysis

Threat of new entrants: The biopharmaceuticals market requires high research and development investments which pose high entry barriers for new players.
