GCC Biosimilar Market Overview:

The GCC biosimilar market was worth US$ XX Billion in 2022, expanding at a CAGR of X% during 2017-2022. The market is projected to register a CAGR of X% during 2023-2028, reaching US$ XX Billion by 2028. Biosimilars are medical products generally produced using biological components such as microorganisms and animal or plant cells. They have a complex molecular structure and are highly similar to a reference biologic drug in terms of quality, safety, and efficacy. They are commonly used to develop monoclonal antibodies, therapeutic proteins, and vaccines. They can only be manufactured after the patent expiration of the reference product and are often produced in licensed facilities that are monitored as an essential part of post-market surveillance. They are more expensive than generic medications as their production is more complex and requires more investment in research and development (R&D). They are considered harmless and safe for medical usage, with minor variations in clinically inactive components. As a result, biosimilars are gaining immense popularity among healthcare professionals across GCC countries for preventing, determining, and treating numerous medical ailments.

The GCC biosimilar market is primarily driven by the increasing number of patent expiration of blockbuster biologic drugs. Moreover, governments of GCC countries are taking numerous initiatives to encourage the production and usage of biosimilar drugs and develop strategic models for discount pricing. In line with this, the implementation of supportive policies to accelerate the approval of biosimilar drugs is positively influencing the market growth. Additionally, the rising demand for biosimilar drugs due to the increasing prevalence of chronic medical conditions, such as cancer, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases, as they are more affordable than their branded counterparts, is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, the growing awareness about the availability of high-quality biosimilars that offer improved access to treatment among patients has augmented the product demand. Furthermore, the rising funding and investments from both public and private organizations to upgrade the existing healthcare infrastructure across the GCC region and numerous technological advancements across the industry are contributing to the market growth. Other factors, including ongoing R&D activities in biotechnology and medical science fields, expanding geriatric population, sedentary lifestyles, rapid urbanization, and widespread product availability, are also anticipated to drive the market further.
