Advancements in antibody technology has revolutionized both the diagnostic and therapeutic sciences. As of today, monoclonal antibodies can be produced virtually against any antigen and they have transformed the diagnostic industry in view of their specificity towards specific antigens and almost unlimited production capabilities. In the field of therapeutics, they have changed the treatment possibilities and significantly improved the life expectancies of patients who were earlier having very high unmet needs.
IMARC Group, one of the world’s leading research and advisory firms, in its latest report “Indian Diagnostic & Therapeutic Antibodies Market Report & Forecast: 2011-2016” finds that the Indian market for both therapeutic and diagnostic antibodies is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years. Findings from the report suggest that more than 60% of the total antibodies market is currently dominated by diagnostic antibodies. This segment, however, is more mature, has lower entry barriers and is extremely price sensitive. The market for therapeutic antibodies in India, on the other hand, is still in its infancy and more than half of the globally launched therapeutic monoclonal antibodies are currently not even available here. In the coming years, however, we expect this market to explode. Driven by a continuous increase in healthcare expenditures, increasing affordability, and a number of new product launches, we expect the market for therapeutic antibodies to grow at a CAGR of 27% in the next five years.
