The biologics safety testing market is growing at a favorable rate. The major drivers for the market include growth of the pharmaceutical and biological industries and an increasing number of new drug launches. Over the years, the number of drug approvals in North American countries has increased. Between 2001 and 2010, the FDA approved 225 drug applications and Health Canada approved 99. In addition, according to WIPO, Europe accounted for 3,822 of the pharmaceutical and 1,998 of the biotechnology patents granted in 2012. Furthermore, according to OECD estimates, in 2011, the total number of biotechnology companies in the U.S. was 7,970. This will spur the growth of biologics safety testing market.
The global pharmaceutical industry is expected to grow at a CAGR between 5% and 8%. According to the IMS Institute of Healthcare Informatics, the global biologics market has increased from $46 billion in 2002 to $169 billion in 2012. Biologics accounted for 11% of the total sales of drugs in 2002, which increased to 18% in 2012. It is estimated that this figure will rise to 20% by 2017, with a total market value of $221 billion. According to Ernst & Young’s Global Biotechnology Report 2013, companies in biotech centers in the U.S., Europe, Canada, and Australia achieved revenues of about $90 billion in 2012. This was an 8% increase over their revenues in 2011. According to OECD estimates, in 2011, the total number of biotechnology companies in the U.S. was 7,970, followed by Spain (3,025 biotechnology companies), and France (1,481 biotechnology companies). Owing to the rise in the number of biotechnology companies, biopharmaceutical production has increased globally. Biologics safety testing is carried out at all levels of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturing process to minimize the risk of product contamination. Growth in pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries will drive the growth of the biologics safety testing market.
