Monoclonal Antibody Therapy Market

Market Highlights

The global Monoclonal Antibody Therapy Market has been evaluated as rapidly growing market and it is expected that the market will continue to grow similarly in the near future. Antibodies are an important part of the immune system.  Generally, our body creates antibodies in response to an antigen entering the body.  These antibodies attach to the antigen in order to mark it as harmful which is then destroyed by the body’s immune system. Monoclonal Antibodies are the antibodies produced in the laboratory which can mimic the function of a normal antibody to attack the antigen. However, monoclonal antibodies are engineered in such a way that they identify and attach to the mono-specific targeted antigen on the surface of the cancer cell or any other foreign cell. It is often referred to as a targeted immunotherapy. Monoclonal antibodies identify and destroy the tumor cells without causing any harm to the normal healthy cells of the body. The major application of the monoclonal antibody therapy is the treatment of the cancer. Having said that, Monoclonal antibody therapy can only be done for the cancers in which the antigens have been identified so far. Some of the common monoclonal antibodies are Alemtuzumab, Rituximab, Trastuzumab, Gemtuzumab ozogamicin, Ibritumomab Tioxetan.


According to WHO, the world will witness more than 70% rise in the number of cancer patients in the next few years, out of which maximum number of patients will be from the Asia, Africa and South America region. There has been extensive research going on to develop the new monoclonal antibodies and drugs in order to treat the wide range of disorders with minimum side effects. The sudden rise in the number of cancer cases is likely to propel the growth of the monoclonal antibody therapy market in the near future. Moreover the commercialization of the newly developed monoclonal antibodies and drugs will give a boost to the monoclonal antibody therapy market. On the other hand, lack of awareness about the technology in the developing nations and the limited healthcare expenditure and low affordability of such expensive treatments in the low income economies is expected to hamper the growth of the monoclonal antibody market.
