This market research study presents a detailed segmentation of the global antibody-drug conjugates market by mechanism of action (IgG1 antibodies and HER2 antibodies), by the technologies used (Seattle Genetics technology, ImmunoGen technology, and Immunomedics technology), and by geography (Americas, APAC, and EMEA). The key vendors in the market are F. Hoffmann-La Roche, Seattle Genetics, and Takeda Pharmaceuticals.

Outlook of the global antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) market

According to the antibody drug conjugates industry insights, Technavio’s market research analysts have predicted the antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) market to grow stupendously at a CAGR of more than 41% during the forecast period. Several products in the late-pipeline stage of clinical trials are expected to be launched over the predicted period which is expected to drive the growth prospects of this market. For instance, products like glembatumumab vedotin by Seattle Genetics, trastuzumab by Synthon Biopharmaceuticals are to be launched in the next five years. Moreover, some molecules are in Phase I/II, preclinical, and discovery stages. Altogether, there are several ADCs in the pipeline and their approval in the forecast period is expected to aid in the growth of this market.

In this industry research report, the analysts have estimated factors like the emergence of targeted and combination therapies will positively affect this market over the coming years. Targeted therapies have fewer adverse effects than conventional non-targeted therapies as targeted therapies exploit the surface markers of infected cells, which are absent or in lower amounts in normal cells. For instance, around 20% of all breast cancer cases are associated with the overexpression of HER2. Therefore, drugs that target TER2 receptors are administered as monotherapies or in combination for such cancers. Targeting multiple pathways with ADC in diseases such as cancer reduces the risk of developing treatment-resistant disorders, thereby aiding in the growth of this market in the predicted period.

Segmentation by mechanism of action and analysis of the ADCs market

  • IgG1 antibodies
  • HER2 antibodies

IgG is an antibody composed of four peptide chains and helps control the infection of tissues by binding to the pathogen such as virus, bacteria, and fungi. Moreover, these antibodies play an important role in intracellular antibody-mediated proteolysis and antibody-dependent cell mediated toxicity. IgG1 find extensive applications in immunotherapy and drug development, thereby propelling the growth prospects of the ADCs market. 

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the ADCs market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

Based on the antibody drug conjugates market outlook, the analysts have estimated that the Americas will dominate the global ADCs market until the end of 2020. This segment held the largest market share of more than 50% during 2015. The US was the largest revenue contributor in this region due to increasing incidences and prevalence of cancers.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global ADCs market is highly competitive due to the presence of only three major providers in the market. The entry of new vendors is likely to intensify the competition, both in terms of innovation and technology in the forecast period. The competitive environment is expected to increase in due to the product extensions, new products, and new applications of the products and services provided.  

Key vendors in this market are 

  • F. Hoffmann-La Roche
  • Seattle Genetics
  • Takeda Pharmaceuticals

Other prominent vendors analyzed in this market research report are AbbVie, AbGenomics, ADC Therapeutics, Agensys, ALMAC Group, Ambrx, Astellas Pharma, AstraZeneca, Bayer Healthcare, CARBOGEN AMCIS, Celldex Therapeutics, Daiichi Sankyo, Endo Pharmaceuticals, Esperance Pharmaceuticals, Formation Biologics, Genmab, GlaxoSmithKline, Immunogen, Kairos Therapeutics, MedImmune, Mersana Therapeutics, Novartis, Oxford Biotherapeutics, Pfizer, Stemcentrx, Synthon Biopharmaceuticals, and Zymeworks.
