Biologics Market: A Brave New World for U.S. Drug Companies


Thomson Reuters names key players in market and discusses the challenges they face

Philadelphia, PA, London, UK, – The biologics sector is set for an unprecedented level of activity, according to a new report released today by the Generics and API Intelligence team at Thomson Reuters.

According to the report, during the past five years, U.S. companies have dramatically increased their biologics development, with nearly 6,000 clinical trials with a biological intervention being reported since 2005. With this increase have come new government regulations promoting competition in this sector.

The Thomson Reuters report, What You Need to Know About the Follow-On Biologic Market in the U.S.: Implications, Strategies, and Impact, examines recent regulations and paints a picture of how companies are entering and navigating the evolving biologics landscape.

“Combined sales totaling $30 billion last year, coupled with a recently introduced abbreviated approval pathway for follow-on biologics and an impending patent cliff for blockbuster drugs, makes the biologics arena very enticing to pharmaceutical companies and generics alike,” notes Andrew Bourgoin, pharmaceutical research analyst at Thomson Reuters. “With the follow-on biologics market still in its infancy and ever-evolving, companies need to be nimble — adaptation to change will be critical for players in this area to succeed.”

Thomson Reuters turned to its Generic and API intelligence team to examine the implications new regulation has on the biologics market, strategies research companies can use to compete in this market and the potential impact increased biologics development could have on the U.S.

In this white paper, you will find:

* Information about the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act and how it affects patent litigation, exclusivity and substitution.
* Best practices of cost-cutting and strategic-alliance development.
* A glimpse at the companies expected to compete in the U.S. market.
* Comparisons between biosimilar applications and Biologic Liscense Application processes.
