The oncology biosimilars market is projected to exhibit a massive 29.4% CAGR between the forecast duration from 2020 to 2025. The coronavirus crisis is expected to have a negative impact on the oncology biosimilars industry owing to a growing gap in supply and demand. Lockdowns have disrupted operations in supply chain hubs. In addition, demand for oral and subcutaneous drug formulations has gone up despite low patient volume influencing demand.

"Demand for low costs alternatives to conventional, branded cancer treatment formulations is the primary impetus behind the sales of oncology biosimilars. Growing numbers of geriatrics, coupled with sustained degradation of the environment in recent years has resulted in higher numbers of cancer cases, which is contributing to demand for oncology biosimilars," says the FACT.MR study.
