  • (1888PressRelease) November 20, 2012 - IMARC Group, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms, expects the global sales of biologics - including recombinant proteins, purified proteins and monoclonal antibodies to grow at 8.2 percent compared to 2011, exceeding values worth US$ 117 Billion by the end of 2012. According to the firms latest report titled "Global Biopharmaceutical Market Report & Forecast (2012-2017)," although, the growth of the global biologics market has slowed down in recent years; this market is still growing significantly faster than the overall pharmaceutical market. From a share of around 13% in 2012, biologics are expected to account for nearly 15% of the global pharmaceutical market by 2017.

    Findings from the report suggest that the United States remains the largest market for biotech therapies, representing nearly 47 percent of total global sales. The report which has done a comprehensive analysis of all major developed and emerging biopharmaceutical markets, finds that the developed markets (US, Japan, Western Europe and Canada) together accounted for more than 80% of the global biopharmaceutical sales. Emerging markets, on the other hand, presently account for only a margin of the total global biopharmaceutical sales. They, however, are likely to play a much bigger role in the future. Growth rates in the developed markets are expected to decline as both the government and private insurance providers are likely to apply cost containment measures. Realizing that a lot of future growth is likely to occur outside of what used to be their core markets; recent years have seen ambitious geographical diversification plans adopted by a number of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. These plans aim to boost sales, mainly in the emerging world.
