Antibody Production Market Analysis

COVID-19 had a significant impact on the antibody production market. The government-imposed lockdowns, supply chain disruption, and trade bans in several countries significantly reduced antibody production during the initial phase of the pandemic. However, the emergency use authorization (EUA) for monoclonal antibodies as a treatment against COVID-19 by healthcare organizations increased the demand for antibody production in the industry. For instance, the United States COVID-19 Treatment Panel recommended the use of monoclonal antibodies for treating the SARS-CoV-2 variants, such as Bebtelovimab 175 mg intravenous injections, Bamlanivimab, etesevimab, and a few others. Therefore, the demand for antibodies has been increasing in the past few years. The trend is expected to continue in the forecast period owing to the long-term impact of COVID-19 on a person's health.

The major factors for the growth of the antibody production market include the rising adoption of targeted immunotherapy, the increase in the R&D expenditure of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, and the rising demand for therapeutic antibodies.

Antibodies are used in the treatment of various diseases, such as cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and other chronic diseases. The targeted therapy is attaining importance due to its specificity toward cancer cells while sparing the toxicity to off-target cells. As there is a rising prevalence of cancer, targeted therapies are getting more attention. For instance, as per the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) 2021 report, a total of 150,782 new cancer cases were estimated in Australia in 2021. Out of the total number of cancer cases, breast cancer cases were estimated to be 20,030, lung cancer with 13,810 new cases, and prostate cancer 18,110 cases were estimated to occur in 2021. Some examples of monoclonal antibodies used in targeted therapies are bevacizumab, cetuximab, and ipilimumab. Hence with the high burden of cancer, the antibody production market is estimated to grow during the forecast period.

The rising adoption of targeted therapies is expected to propel the overall growth of the antibody production market over the forecast period. The success rates and blockbuster sales of biologics have also made large pharmaceutical companies shift their presence to biopharma. Over the past two decades, the chimerization and humanization of mAbs (monoclonal antibodies) have led to the approval of several drugs & therapies for the treatment of autoimmune diseases, cancer, and transplant rejection. For instance, in August 2022, the FDA approved Enhertu (fam-trastuzumab-deruxtecan-nxki), an IV infusion for the treatment of patients with unresectable or metastatic HER2-low breast cancer. It is one of the first approved targeted therapy. Such approvals highlight the need and demand for the treatment of life-threatening diseases like breast cancer which is further expected to augment the market growth during the forecast period.

Therefore, owing to the factors such as the high prevalence of diseases requiring targeted therapies and rising product launches by key players, the studied market is anticipated to witness growth over the analysis period. However, the high cost involved in antibody production and stringent government regulations is expected to impede the growth of the market.

Antibody Production Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Antibody Production Market according to our research experts:

The Monoclonal Antibodies Segment is Expected to Hold a Significant Market Share Over The Forecast Period

Monoclonal antibodies have large applications in diagnostics, therapeutics, and targeted drug delivery systems, not only for infectious diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, and protozoa but also for cancer, metabolic, and hormonal disorders.

The segment is expected to hold a significant market share during the forecast period, owing to the rising investment in monoclonal antibody research and an increase in antibody-based product launches. For instance, according to an article published in the Journal of Biomedical Sciences in January 2022, monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) emerged as powerful tools to treat and detect numerous diseases because of their high specificity and reliability. This characteristic has urged the demand for several research studies in which monoclonal antibodies were used for COVID-19 therapy and SARS-CoV-2 detection. Thus, the utility of monoclonal antibodies is immense, ranging from cancer to osteoporosis and organ transplant rejection, which is estimated to propel segment growth.

Furthermore, the strategic initiatives adopted by pharma and biotech companies, such as rising research and development leading to product approvals and launches and a growing collaboration to develop advanced monoclonal antibodies, are also fueling the segment growth. For instance, in May 2021, Cipla launched Roche's antibody cocktail (Casrivimab and Imdevimab) in India for the treatment of mild- to moderate COVID-19 in adults and pediatric patients (12 years of age or older weighing at least 40 kg). Additionally, global pharmaceutical companies are investing heavily in the R&D of cancer biologics drugs (monoclonal antibodies) because they are very efficient and non-toxic in the diagnostics and treatment of different types of cancer as compared to chemotherapy and other cancer treatment methods. These factors are expected to fuel the growth of the monoclonal antibodies segment in the coming years.

Antibody Production Market - Estimated Number of New Cancer Cases, By Type, United States, 2022

North America is Expected to Hold a Significant Market Share Over The Forecast Period

North America is expected to hold a significant share of antibody production owing to the high prevalence of cancer in the region and the strong presence of favorable healthcare infrastructure, and innovations and product launches by market players in the region.

According to the American Cancer Society Cancer Statistics 2022, 1,918,030 new cancer cases are predicted to occur in the United States in 2022. Out of the total cancer cases, breast cancer is estimated for 290,560 new cases, leukemia with 60,650 new cases, and lymphoma with 89,010 new cases in the United States in 2022. Additionally, according to the Canadian Cancer Statistics November 2021 report, an estimated 2 in 5 Canadians were likely to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. It stated that an estimated 229,200 Canadians was predicted to be diagnosed with cancer in 2021.

Furthermore, there is a rise in the approval of antibodies for the treatment of cancer and various types of diseases, which is also contributing to the market growth in the region. For instance, in February 2022, the U.S. FDA issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) for a new monoclonal antibody for bebtelovimab used for the treatment of COVID-19 that retains activity against the omicron variant. The EUA was for the treatment of mild to moderate COVID-19 in adults and pediatric COVID-19-positive patients. The EUA for monoclonal antibodies is expected to create opportunities for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to expedite their research and development on the antibodies to develop an innovative treatment, thereby propelling market growth in the region.

Moreover, the antibody production expansion by key players in the region is also fuelling market growth. For instance, in July 2021, Cytiva and Pall Corporation signed a collaboration agreement for the expansion of manufacturing capacity and services across geographies to meet the growing demand for biotechnology solutions. Cytiva and Pall Corporation's capacity expansion will increase the manufacture of key products used to make biological medicines which are ultimately estimated to propel antibody production in the region during the forecast period.
