Broadening Biologics

In recent years, the pharmaceutical industry has seen a steady shift toward increased patient centricity. The impact can be seen in nearly every aspect of the industry – from regulatory guidance, trial design, and drug delivery to new drugs proliferating the pipeline, such as biologics.

Biologics are used to treat chronic conditions, such as multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune diseases. Additionally, by targeting specific components of a disease in ways never thought possible before, these therapies also may help some acute conditions, including certain types of cancer, become manageable chronic conditions.

Biologics are set to experience rapid and transformative growth over the next several years as more drug manufacturers tap into their potential. They are already outpacing the compound annual growth rate of the wider pharma industry, mainly driven by the US (1). Most global spending growth, particularly in developed markets, will be driven by oncology, autoimmune, and diabetes treatments where significant innovations are expected. Industry forecasts predict the global annual spend for autoimmune diseases alone to be US $75-90 billion in 2021 (1).
