A new race has been initiated between biosimilar and branded drug manufacturers to gain maximum revenue share from insulin market. The upcoming three years are very crucial for insulin manufacturers, as most of the branded insulin are going to be off patent which would results into the loss of around US$53 Bn revenue for branded manufacturers in 2016. Generic manufacturers are expected to take smaller chunk of this amount owing to their local presence which would restrain them take share from other markets. In such dynamic situation, the original drug manufacturers are seeking for plan B to sustain their hold in the market. As a result, these companies are now integrated with biosimilar manufacturers through agreement, alliance. Moreover, legal troubles pertaining patent infringement is hampering the development insulin Biosimilars. In order to overcome such infringement issues, the companies are now collaborating with each other to develop biosimilars versions of insulin. Recent example of global collaboration agreement between Mylan N.V. and Momenta Pharmaceuticals, Inc. has provided a competitive advantage to Mylan by increasing the number of insulin biosimlars under development. This collaboration will capitalized Mylan’s existing portfolio of biologics and insulin analog development.
Insulin Biosimilars Market: Drivers and Restraints
Increasing prevalence of Type I diabetes, higher cost of existing insulin drugs are expected to drive growth of insulin biosimilars market. Government authorities are also focusing on the approval of insulin biosimilars owing to substantial financial burden in terms of reimbursements. Recently, the U.S. FDA has approved new insulin glargine Basaglar, for type 1 and type 2 diabetes which is Biosimilar version of Sanofi’s basal insulin Lantus (insulin glargine). Additionally, Lilly and Boehringer Ingelheim's biosimilar insulin glargine has got approval through European Medicines Agency's (EMA's) Biosimilar pathway. Such ongoing approvals by the respective authorities are expected to drive the growth of insulin Biosimilar market. However, Insulin patent protection rights and strong retaliation from the branded manufactures has restricted the growth of insulin biosimilar development.
