Key Takeaways from the GLP-1 Receptor Agonist Market

  • Trulicity held the largest share in terms of revenue generation in 2019
  • Ozempic is expected to witness the highest growth rate between 2020 and 2030 owing to advantages like weight loss, reduction of cardiovascular risk, and controlled levels of haemoglobin
  • Asia Pacific is expected to be growing at the fastest pace due to onslaught of diabetes supporting intake of GLP-1 receptor agonists

Extensive research being carried out to bring out generics versions of GLP-1 Receptors is likely to change the status-quo of the market” – says the FMI analyst.

Short-Term Slowdown Due To Covid-19

The GLP-1 receptor agonist market has slowed down due to the outbreak of Covid-19. Majority of the projects all through the US, South Korea, Germany, and China are being delayed as the players are encountering short-term operational issues owing to supply chain constraints coupled with lack of access to sites.

As China has been at a pivotal position with regards to the chemical industry, it will take some time for the players to adapt to the “new” normal post Covid-19 era.

The first quarter of 2021 is expected to witness a major upturn on this count. The players are likely to be on the lookout of smoothing the supply chain while looking for alternatives to China.

GLP-1 Receptor Agonist Market Competitive Landscape

According to FMI’s analysis, not even a single generic version of GLP-1 is available in the market, as these medications are patent-protected.

However, some time back, Teva did confirm generic Victoza. It also stated that it had filed ANDA (abbreviated new drug application) with the US FDA, thereby asking for approval for marketing Novo Nordisk’s Victoza (Iiraglutide) injection in the US.

The other major players in the GLP-1 Receptor Agonist market include AstraZeneca, Sanofi, and Eli Lilly and Company.
