Antibody Discovery Services and Platforms Market (4th Edition):
Distribution by Type of Service Offered (Antigen Designing, Hit Generation, Lead Selection, Lead Optimization, Lead Characterization), Antibody Discovery Method (Library based, Hybridoma based, Single Cell based, Transgenic Animal based), Nature of Antibody Generated (Humanized, Human, Chimeric, Murine) and Key Geographies (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and North Africa): Industry Trends and Global Forecasts, 2022-2035.
Since the approval of Orthoclone OKT3, a murine monoclonal antibody against T cell expressed CD3 (for the treatment of acute transplant rejection) in 1986, antibody therapeutics have evolved into a prominent class of therapeutics. These therapeutics have high target specificities and favorable safety profiles. Currently, close to 100 monoclonal antibodies have been approved while more than 500 molecules are being evaluated in clinical trials. Some of the recently approved monoclonal antibody therapies include (in reverse chronological order) Tivdak® (September 2021), Saphnelo® (August 2021), Rybrevant® (May 2021), Ebanga (December 2020) and MARGENZA® (December 2020). The growing popularity of antibody based therapeutics is also reflected from the extensive research being conducted on other novel antibody formats, such as bispecific antibodies, antibody drug conjugates (ADCs) and antibody fragments in the past few years.
It is worth highlighting that the process of antibody development, beginning from the discovery to the commercialization of a clinically validated product, takes around 10-15 years. Moreover, antibody discovery and clinical research are capital intensive processes, which, on an average, require investments of around USD 4-10 billion. Further, it is a well-known fact that only a small proportion of lead molecules that are shortlisted for further investigation during the discovery phase make it into the clinical phase, and an even lesser number of product candidates enter the market. In order to optimize on internal resource utilization and save costs, pharmaceutical companies are increasingly outsourcing various aspects of their discovery-stage operations to specialty contract research organizations (CROs). Apart from being considered a viable business strategy, engaging third party service providers offers both time and cost related benefits to the drug / therapy developers. Given the rising demand for antibody based therapeutics and growing preference for outsourcing, we are led to believe that the opportunity for contract service provides and technology developers is likely to increase at a steady rate in the foreseen future.
