Based on products, monoclonal antibodies segment is the fastest growing segment owing to rapid growth of the monoclonal antibodies to develop therapeutics antibodies

Based on the product, the monoclonal antibodies segment is the fastest growing segment due to increasing FDA approval for the new product launch. For instance, in March 2019, Pfizer's cancer biosimilar TRAZIMERA which is monoclonal antibody was authorised by the US FDA to treat the patients suffering from HER 2+ breast cancer with the combination of chemotherapy. TRAZIMERA is the biosimilar of the trastuzumab (Genetech’s Herceptin). TRAZIMERA is the affordable treatment for the patients that improves the access for the cancer treatment.

Based on applications, oncology segment is estimated to hold the largest share in the market over the forecast period due to increasing population suffering from cancer

The oncology segment is expected to hold the highest market share increasing prevalence of cancer among the population that drives the growth of biopharmaceuticals market. For instance, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer estimates that the global incidence of cancer is expected to reach 29.5 million by 2040, from 18.1 million in 2018.

The increasing awareness among the cancer patients about less side effects and low risk of recurrence by using biopharmaceuticals that rises the adoption rate considerably which is another propelling factor for the growth of the biopharmaceuticals Industry. For instance, according to the use of trastuzumab (Herceptin) with the chemotherapy reduces the chances of recurrence of breast cancer.
