This market research report presents a comprehensive segmentation of the global immunotherapy drugs market by type of immunotherapy (mAbs, vaccines, immune checkpoint inhibitors, non-specific immunotherapies, and others), by therapy area (oncology, infectious disease, autoimmune and inflammatory disorders, respiratory diseases, and others), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA). Key vendors are AbbVie, Amgen, Bristol-Myers Squibb, F.Hoffmann-La Roche, Johnson & Johnson, and Merck.

Overview of the global immunotherapy drugs market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts that the global immunotherapy drugs market will grow at a steady CAGR of close to 12% by 2020. During a rise in cancer and a number of autoimmune diseases, the need for immunotherapy drugs is on the rise. Furthermore, with the increasing demand for mAbs, the market for immunotherapy drugs will have a positive outlook until the end of the forecast period. mAbs have a high affinity for specific disease cells and areas that need treatment. Consequently, they can be used for therapies like radioimmunotherapy and antibody-directed enzyme prodrug therapy. The augmented usage of these antibodies in drug development will help to bolster the market’s revenue generating capacity over the course of the next four years.

An important factor impelling the prospects for growth in this market is the emergence of biosimilars. Unlike generic drugs, which have active pharmaceutical ingredients similar to original drugs, biosimilars are almost identical to their originator biologic compounds. Since biosimilars help to make treatments more accessible to patients and are less expensive than biologics, their sale among the end users is anticipated to increase significantly over the next few years.

Segmentation by type of immunotherapy and analysis of the immunotherapy drugs market

  • mAbs
  • Vaccines
  • Immune checkpoint inhibitors
  • Non-specific immunotherapies

During 2015, the mAbs segment dominated this market and accounted for an impressive market share of nearly 61%. The development of new drugs and the entry of new molecules like zanolimumab, elotuzumab, obinutuzumab, and onartuzumab into the market will aid in the growth of this market segment during the forecast period. 

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the immunotherapy drugs market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

The Americas dominated the global market with over 50% market share in 2015. The market is flourishing in this region due to the higher incidences of cancer, infectious diseases, and autoimmune diseases in the US. Additionally, factors such as the high affordability of therapies due to the presence of well-structured reimbursement plans will also spur the prospects for market growth until 2020.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global market for immunotherapy drugs is highly competitive due to the presence of a number of large and small vendors. Many of these vendors have a huge global presence and enter into strategic alliances to aid in the manufacture and marketing of essential drugs.
