Immunoglobulin Market: Global Traction steer Focus on R&D


20, July 2022

The increase in the geriatric population and the prevalence of immunodeficiency diseases and auto-immune disorders are skyrocketing the popularity of immunoglobulin drugs. As a result, the global immunoglobulin market is expected to surge at a CAGR of 6.77% during the forecast period 2022-2028.

Research stated that more than 6 million people across the globe are affected by primary immunodeficiency diseases, and 70-90% of these remain undiagnosed. Further, 2020 witnessed the phase two clinical trial by Green Cross Corporation to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Hyper-Ig GC5131 in patients with COVID-19 infection. Hence, several operating players are focusing on developing new immunoglobulin drugs, boosting the immunoglobulin market.

The intravenous immunoglobulin drugs are continually gaining popularity among patients to treat organ-specific diseases relating to the skin and the nervous system. Further, the United States Food and Drug Administration approves products, including intravenous immunoglobulin. For instance, approval of the supplemental Biologics License Application for PANZYGA of Pfizer Inc. for treating patients with rare neurological diseases of peripheral nerves.

The high cost of immunoglobulin therapy and the high risk of side effects can limit its adoption across the globe and hamper the overall market growth.

In China, the Health Minister of Yunnan Province has planned to establish around 24 plasma collection stations around the province. Further, there are increasing mergers and acquisitions among blood product companies across the country. For instance, Southern Shuanglin Bio-Pharmacy merged with Harbin Pacific Biopharmaceutical to restructure itself and raise money.
