LONDON, August 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- INTRODUCTIONBiologics constitute a majority of the top selling drugs of today

and also represent one of the fastest growing segments of the overall pharmaceutical industry. In fact, the share of biologics in the overall pharmaceutical market has increased from 16% in 2006 to over 25% in 2017. Having reported over 70% increase
in revenues over the past 5-6 years, the market for biologically derived products is currently estimated to be worth more than USD 200 billion. Despite their clinical and commercial success, biopharmaceutical products are associated with high development costs, which are evidently reflected in their prices. Moreover, such therapies are usually designed for intravenous administration, which require a clinical setting (hospitals / infusion centers) for dosing; this further adds to the overall treatment cost. Of late, the subcutaneous route of administration has emerged as a promising and viable approach for the parenteral delivery of biologic drugs. Owing to several compelling advantages, such as patient convenience, potential for self-administration, better therapy adherence and reduced healthcare costs, the concept is steadily gaining traction within the healthcare industry.Download the full report: https://www.reportbuyer.com/product/5483804 Given the robust pipeline of biologics, which include monoclonal antibodies, vaccines and other protein-based therapeutic products, subcutaneous delivery options are being investigated for various clinical candidates across different phases of development. In fact, several approved therapeutic products that are currently delivered intravenously are also being reformulated and evaluated for subcutaneous administration in order to improve their adoption, and for life cycle management of drugs nearing patent expiry.In addition, several drug delivery devices that can be used for self-administration have been developed, and many others are under development. Some of the most popular self-administration enabling devices include large volume wearable injectors, autoinjectors, pen injectors, needle free injectors and prefilled syringes. In fact, these innovative drug-device combination products have witnessed high adoption rates over the past few years and have brought about marked improvements in adherence to prescribed therapeutic regimens. Further, to overcome the limitations and challenges associated with the delivery of subcutaneous formulations, several novel technology platforms have been developed to enable the delivery of (highly) viscous formulations. The rising incidence of chronic clinical conditions (which are characterized by the need for frequent medications) and continuous efforts of therapy / device developers in this field are anticipated to drive the overall growth of this market in the coming years.SCOPE OF THE REPORTThe 'Subcutaneous Biologics, Technologies and Drug Delivery Systems (2nd Edition), 2018-2030' report provides a comprehensive study on the current market landscape and future potential of biologics designed for subcutaneous administration.

Till date, over 95 biologics have been approved as subcutaneous formulations. In fact, more than 10 such products were approved in 2017 / 2018 by the FDA; these include (in alphabetical order) Admelog® (Sanofi), Benlysta® (Human Genome Sciences and GSK), CRYSVITA® (Kyowa Hakko Kirin and Ultragenyx), DUPIXENT® (Regeneron Pharmaceuticals and Sanofi), FASENRA® (AstraZeneca), Fiasp® (Novo Nordisk), HAEGARDA® (CSL Behring), HEMLIBRA® (Roche), ILUMYA™ (Merck and Sun Pharma), Kevzara® (Regeneron Pharmaceuticals and Sanofi), Kyntheum® / SILIQ™ / Lumicef® (AstraZeneca, LEO Pharma, Valeant Pharmaceuticals and Kyowa Hakko Kirin), RITUXAN HYCELA™ (Roche, Biogen and Chugai Pharmaceutical) and TREMFYA® (Janssen Pharmaceuticals). In addition, close to 240 products are presently being investigated across various stages of clinical development. Around 25% of the clinical candidates are currently in phase III trials; of these, marketing applications have been filed for 15% of the candidates. Notable examples of products that are likely to receive approval in the near future include (in alphabetical order) burosumab (Kyowa Hakko Kirin and Ultragenyx), fremanezumab (Teva Pharmaceutical and Otsuka Pharmaceutical) and galcanezumab (Eli Lilly).2. The market is characterized by the presence of several big pharmaceutical companies that have multiple subcutaneous biologics in their product portfolios; examples include (in decreasing order of number of marketed / clinical products in their portfolio) Amgen, Roche, Sanofi, Novo Nordisk, Eli Lilly, Pfizer, Novartis, AstraZeneca, Merck, Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Merck Serono. In addition, several small-sized companies and start-ups have undertaken initiatives in this area; examples include (in alphabetical order, no selection criteria) Acer Therapeutics, Altor BioScience, Anthera Pharmaceuticals, Araclon Biotech, ARMO Biosciences, Avillion, Bird Rock Bio, Boston Pharmaceuticals, Catalyst Biosciences, Centocor Ortho Biotech, Corvidia Therapeutics, CuraVac, CytoDyn, Cytori Therapeutics, DiaMedica Therapeutics, Diasome Pharmaceuticals, Genor Biopharma, GlobeImmune, Harbour BioMed, Immutep, Neumedicines, Neurimmune, Oncolix, PhaseBio Pharmaceuticals, Provenance Biopharmaceuticals, Qu Biologics, REMD Biotherapeutics, Taisho Pharmaceutical, Viela Bio, Vitaeris and XEME Biopharma3. Close to 45% of the subcutaneous biologics under clinical development are monoclonal antibodies. These are followed by other types of protein-based therapeutics, including interferons, interleukins, hormones, enzymes and cytokines, which account for approximately 27% of the clinical pipeline. Vaccines, recombinant peptides and cell / gene therapies are other therapy types being investigated for subcutaneous administration. Further, about 25% of the products in the development pipeline are designed to treat autoimmune disorders, such as (in the decreasing order of number of biologics under development) rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, psoriasis, Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. On the other hand, nearly 20% of the candidates are being developed for the treatment of metabolic disorders, primarily focused on diabetes. Other prominent therapeutic areas for which such product formulations are under development include cardiovascular diseases, neurological disorders and certain cancer indications.4. In order to overcome the challenges related to the formulation of biologics for subcutaneous delivery, multiple companies have developed innovative technology platforms. During our research, we came across close to 20 technology platforms that have been developed to facilitate the subcutaneous administration of biologics. We observed that most of the technology developers in this domain are small or mid-sized companies with a workforce of up to 200 employees; in fact, five such companies were established post 2013; these are (in order of year of establishment) Elektrofi (2016), Lindy Biosciences (2016), i-novion (2015), Excelse Bio (2014) and ReForm Biologics (2014). As per our proprietary company competitiveness analysis, Halozyme Therapeutics, Camurus, Adocia, MedinCell, Ascendis Pharma and Xeris Pharmaceuticals have emerged as key players in terms of supplier power, pipeline strength and number of collaborations signed specific to the subcutaneous formulation technology.5. The increasing preference for self-administration has prompted several device manufacturers to develop novel systems for the subcutaneous delivery of drugs. During our research, we came across over 110 companies that are currently involved in the development of over 230 drug delivery systems. Of all the device categories, we observed that several companies (28) are involved in the development / manufacturing of prefilled syringes (glass / plastic), whereas large volume wearable injectors is the second most popular category, with such solutions being developed by 27 players. Other types of delivery systems being evaluated for subcutaneous delivery include (in the decreasing order of number of companies involved) implants, needle free injection systems, autoinjectors, novel drug reconstitution systems and pen injectors. It is worth highlighting that around 10 players are involved in the development of more than one type of delivery system; these are (in alphabetical order) Antares Pharma, Becton Dickinson, Crossject, ELCAM Medical, Future Injection Technologies, Gerresheimer, Owen Mumford, SHL Group, West Pharmaceuticals and Ypsomed.6. Despite the various limitations associated with subcutaneous formulations, the field offers immense opportunities to pharmaceutical companies, device manufacturers and technology developers. Companies are also reformulating their intravenous drugs for subcutaneous administration for life cycle management and product differentiation purposes; prominent examples of such products include (in the reverse chronological order of approval year for subcutaneous formulation, in the US) MabThera® SC / RITUXAN HYCELA™ (2017), Benlysta® (2017), Actemra®/RoActemra® (2013) and ORENCIA® (2011). The rising incidence of chronic clinical conditions (which are characterized by the need for frequent administration of medications) and continuous efforts of therapy / device developers in this field are anticipated to drive the growth in this market in the coming years.7. The current size of the subcutaneous biologics market is estimated to be more than USD 80 billion and it is expected to grow at an annualized rate of ~6% over the next decade. The drugs developed / being developed for the treatment of autoimmune disorders and metabolic disorders contribute the highest share (over 40%) of the current market; we anticipate the revenue generation potential to increase for other therapeutic areas, such as cardiovascular disorders, blood disorders and genetic disorders, in the future.8. In terms of the devices / systems that facilitate subcutaneous administration, we expect prefilled syringes to continue to dominate the market, followed by autoinjectors, large volume wearable injectors and novel drug reconstitution systems. In addition, technology developers are likely to significantly benefit from upfront / milestone payments as a result of multi-billion dollar licensing deals.Download the full report: https://www.reportbuyer.com/product/5483804 About Reportbuyer Reportbuyer is a leading industry intelligence solution that provides all market research reports from top publishers For more information: Sarah Smith Research Advisor at Reportbuyer.com Email: sarah@reportbuyer.com Tel: +1 (718) 213 4904 Website: www.reportbuyer.com
