The report provides a comprehensive insight into the biosimilars market, with regional market forecasts for biosimilars in India and China, and analysis of the drivers and restraints that affect the market. The report looks at key market companies in the emerging biosimilars industry through profiles and analysis of their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. The report also provides information on the global biosimilars pipeline. Also discussed in detail are success factors for the emerging biosimilar industry and the regulatory environment in emerging markets with respect to biosimilars. At the end, the report provides an analysis on major deals that have taken place in the industry from 2007 to 2011. This report is built using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research, and in house analysis by GBI Research's team of industry experts. The emerging biosimilars market has grown significantly in the recent past and has the ability to grow in the future due to the expiry of patents for major biological drugs, pressure on governments in emerging economies to reduce healthcare costs, and the savings that can be obtained with biosimilars over branded biologics. The emerging biosimilars market was valued at $0.3 billion in 2002 and increased to a value of $3.3 billion in 2010, at a CAGR of 34%. The market is expected to increase to a value of $8 billion in 2018 at a CAGR of 12%. Strategic consolidations, such as M&As, licensing agreements and co-developments, are actively pursued by major pharmaceutical companies, many of which are from India. The launch of a number of biosimilars that are presently in the late stage of development in the R&D pipeline, and government initiatives to develop the biosimilars market in emerging economies, will also drive growth.
