Delhi, India ( March 18, 2013 - A new report from IMARC Group expects the biopharmaceutical market in the US to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during 2012-2017. This is significantly lower than the average 8-9% growth rate observed in this market in the last five years.

According to an analyst at IMARC Group, "the rise of biosimilars in the US is expected to have a major impact on market growth. Recombinant proteins, which currently account for around 60% of the total US biopharmaceutical sales, are expected to be the worst hit during the forecast period. During 2012-2017, we expect nine biological brands in this segment to face biosimilar competition. Recombinant proteins are expected to witness a CAGR growth of less than 3% during this period. The growth of monoclonal antibodies, on the other hand, is expected to be significantly faster than recombinant proteins during the forecast period. The key factors driving the monoclonal antibodies will be a rich pipeline and approval of additional indications for currently marketed drugs. Although some monoclonal antibodies such as Rituxan and Humira may face biosimilar competition, we expect significantly lower biosimilar threat for monoclonal antibodies during the forecast period compared to recombinant proteins.
