MarketResearchReports.Biz announces addition of new report “Global and China Monoclonal Antibody Industry, 2013-2017” to its database
Antibody drugs are usually generated from monoclonal antibody through genetic engineering, with the advantages of strong targeting, few side effects, etc. With rather promising application prospect in clinic treatment, antibody drugs are mainly applied in curing diseases like tumour, immune system and so on. In terms of the global market, antibody drugs account for over 40% of the entire biotech drug market and the market share still keeps increasing. Antibody drugs have become one of the most important parts of biotech drugs and monoclonal antibody drugs are even star products of antibody drugs. Among the top 10 best selling drugs in 2012, six of them were monoclonal antibody drugs with each annual sales value exceeding USD 5 billion.
In recent years, the market scale of monoclonal antibody drugs increased rapidly. In 2012, the global sales value of monoclonal antibody preparation exceeded USD 50 billion. Among that, Roche (plus Genentech) was the leading monoclonal antibody enterprises, which possessed seven products sold in the market including Avastin, Herceptin, Rituximab, etc. In 2012, its sales value of monoclonal antibody products reached USD 20 billion. Mono antibody drugs will become the main force promoting the development of biological drugs in the next few years.

In recent years, China bio pharmaceuticals industry develops rapidly, but antibody drugs lag far behind the average international level with sales value being less than 3% of biological drug share. At present, China antibody drug market is still in the initial stage. However, with Shanghai CITIC National Health Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. and Biotech Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. releasing humanization products, product types of domestic antibody drugs will enter the upgrading stage. Although domestic full humanization products have not been released, humanization products and full humanization products will become the domestic trend of monoclonal antibody products in the future.
Monoclonal antibody still belongs to high end products in China market, which mainly depends on import. In 2012, the market scale of monoclonal antibody was only over CNY 2 billion, which accounted for less than 1% of the global market share but the growth rate was rather high. Roche is the largest winner in China monoclonal antibody market with the market shares of its Rituximab and Trastuzumab being the largest. Merck and Novartis also occupy rather large market shares. Take Rituximab and Trastuzumab that were produced and sold by Roche at an earlier time for instance, their sales values in sample hospitals were only CNY 17.70 million and CNY 2.70 million respectively in 2003, which increased to CNY 590 million and CNY 530 million in 2011.
