The retinal biosimilars market has witnessed a remarkable boost with the approval of several retinal biosimilars in 2017. Amgen’s Amgevita in March, f Biogen/Samsung Bioepis’s Imraldi in August, and Boehringer Ingelheim Internationl’s Cyltezo in November were approved in their respective regions. The slow adoption of retinal biosimilars is anticipated due to the initial reluctance of physicians to prescribe retinal biosimilars for individuals who have been using branded products over a long period of time. It is anticipated that retinal biosimilars, over the forecast period, could exploit their commercial potential due to the patent expiration of existing therapies such as Lucentis, Eyela, and others.
Retinal Biosimilars Market: Drivers and Restraints
The growing prevalence and recurrence of retinal diseases is expected to be the major factor driving the growth of the retinal biosimilars market over the coming years. Various initiatives conducted by different organizations across the globe spread awareness related to the treatment and diagnosis of ophthalmic diseases.
