  • North America accounted for 47.9% of the market value in 2021 due to the availability of advanced healthcare infrastructure, high growth in cancer incidence, and local presence of key players such as Pfizer Inc., Amgen, Inc., and Merck & Co., among others
  • The Asia Pacific is projected to witness the highest growth rate in the forecast period due to the availability of a large patient pool for cancer treatment and expanding the scope of clinical research prospects for mAbs.

Increasing research and development activities aimed at the development of novel therapeutic monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) and supportive government initiatives for biologics production are anticipated to drive the market growth in the forecast period.

The rising demand for personalized medicine is likely to positively affect the development of therapeutic mAb targeted therapies that are tailored to individual requirements. Moreover, the therapeutic use of mAbs offers several advantages such as fewer adverse effects, specificity of treatment, and large-scale production capabilities, as compared to conventional treatment options, and can significantly drive market growth.

In addition, several government entities are fueling clinical research activities and expanding the scope of applications for mAb therapies. For instance, in June 2022, the National Institutes of Health launched clinical trials for the evaluation of dupilumab, for the reduction of asthma attacks and the improvement of lung functionality in children. Similarly, in March 2021, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services invested USD 150 million in increasing patient access to monoclonal antibody therapeutics for COVID-19. Such initiatives are expected to increase the adoption of monoclonal antibodies and strengthen the growth prospects.

Furthermore, technological advancements in genetic engineering, DNA cloning, and various peptide and protein display technologies have led to the generation and optimization of recombinant mAbs. Demand for such recombinant antibodies is driven by increasing commercial prospects and quality requirements that may not be fulfilled by hybridoma technologies. Hence, with the increasing commercial viability of recombinant technologies, the market is expected to witness significant growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created several market expansion opportunities by fueling the development of several mAbs directed against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. As mAbs represent a promising alternative for mitigation of the disease due to their safety and effectiveness, several mAbs such as Eli Lilly’s bebtelovimab, and GlaxoSmithKline & Vir Biotechnology’s sotrovimab have attained emergency use authorizations from the U.S. FDA. Such authorizations are likely to broaden the horizons for the growth of mAbs applications and propel market growth.

Source type Insights

The human source type held the largest share and accounted for 55.07% of the market value in 2021. Human mAbs offer efficient modulation in effector functions and are less immunogenic as compared to chimeric or humanized mAbs. Such antibodies can be produced through the use of phage display and hybridoma technologies in transgenic mice. As a result, with recent technological progress in genetic engineering, the production of fully human mAbs is anticipated to gain traction in the near future.

Humanized mAbs are expected to reveal the fastest CAGR in the forecast period due to their widespread use against a broad range of target antigens such as cancer cells, immunosuppression, and immunomodulatory molecules. Demand for such antibodies is also supported by their lower immunogenicity as compared to chimeric mAbs. However, these antibodies are more immunogenic as compared to human mAbs, which may restrict the market growth.

Production Type Insights

In vitro production type held the largest market share in 2021 due to its economic viability in long production runs and lower propensity for contamination with foreign antigens. In addition, the availability of serum-free culture media and semi-permeable membrane-based systems has increased the feasibility of biomanufacturing operations and is likely to accelerate segment growth. However, the production type is limited by variations in hybridoma characteristics that can lead to denaturation or inactivation of antibodies and restrict the segment growth.

In vivo production type is expected to grow at a significant rate in the forecast period due to its highly cost-effective production as compared to in vitro techniques and ability to produce a high concentration of mAbs. These mAbs are used in the diagnostic industry, wherein cost considerations are of prime importance, and optimization of in vivo procedures can be done to increase the secretion of mAbs.

Application Insights

The oncology segment dominated the applications market for mAbs and accounted for 51.09% of the market value in 2021. This can be attributed to the high number of regulatory approvals for mAbs aimed at cancer treatment. The surge in the incidence of cancer is a key factor anticipated to drive the growth of mAbs therapeutics as these can have minimal adverse effects as compared to other drugs and chemotherapy interventions. Currently, available mAb therapeutics include those targeted against non-small cell lung, brain tumor, ovarian, breast, gastric, melanoma, colorectal, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and others.

Applications of mAbs for the treatment of autoimmune diseases are projected to grow at a lucrative rate due to the increasing prevalence of autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. Furthermore, with growth in the number of cytokine proteins identified in inflammatory pathways that can be targeted for disease mitigation, applications of mAbs in this domain are anticipated to witness growth.

End-use Insights

The hospital end-use segment held the largest market share of 41.2% in 2021 due to the increasing adoption of mAbs for cancer treatment at hospitals. Rising healthcare expenditure across the world, increasing patient awareness levels, and availability of advanced hospital infrastructure in developed countries are factors expected to result in the dominance of the segment during the forecast period.

Specialty centers accounted for a significant market share in 2021 due to the increasing government support in recent years. For instance, the National Cancer Institute’s Cancer Centers Program is establishing standards for transdisciplinary cancer centers focused on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of various types of cancers. Such initiatives are expected to positively affect the segment growth. 

Regional Insights

North America recorded the largest market share of 47.2% in 2021 due to the presence of a highly developed healthcare infrastructure, high patient awareness, and growth in cancer research prospects, among other factors. Moreover, increasing government expenditure for cancer research and the presence of key players such as Pfizer Inc., Amgen, Inc., and Merck & Co., among others, are expected to boost the market growth.

Asia Pacific region is projected to exhibit the fastest growth rate in the forecast period due to the increasing disposable income, availability of a large patient pool for mAb cancer therapeutics, and rising focus on healthcare. Countries such as India and China offer attractive investment opportunities for clinical research and are anticipated to positively drive research and development prospects for mAbs.
