Biopharmaceutical Market Regional Analysis

North America dominates the biopharmaceutical market and is expected to continue a similar trend in the coming years. As per the reports revealed by the Information Technology & Innovation Foundation, the US leads the world in life science in terms of innovation. Till 2016, the US-headquartered enterprises accounted for 42% of new chemical and biological entities introduced and approved globally. Moreover, pharmaceutical companies invested 40% more in the US than in Europe. This has resulted in the US becoming the world's largest funder of biomedical R&D investment over the past two decades and a share by some analysts have estimated around 80% high. This contributed to an unprecedented era of life sciences innovation and the creation of jobs in the US. The biopharmaceutical companies have invested over half a trillion dollars in R&D, while more than 350 new medicines have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Furthermore, The International Trade Administration (ITA), the US is the largest market for biopharmaceuticals, accounting for one-third of the global market and is the world leader in biopharmaceutical R&D. More than 800,000 people work in the biopharmaceutical industry in the United States across a broad range of occupations, including scientific research, technical support, and manufacturing. The US attracts the majority of global venture capital investments in start-up biopharmaceutical enterprises.

On the other hand, Asia-Pacific is expected to record the fastest growing CAGR in the forthcoming years. Among the APAC region, China is the dominant country focusing on biopharmaceutical development. Key developments involve building large-scale and high-throughput genome sequencing technology and equipment, and massive biological information processing and analysis technology. Moreover, the construction of public technology service platform to build a large-scale biological resource pool and the core platform of the biological information center, build networked national biological resources and biological information service facilities, strengthen the deep exploration of genetic information, and promote the development of new sequencers. The Chinese Government has implemented a drug regulatory system and its approval system. This ultimately results in high consumption of the products and also ensures the production of high-quality Chinese produced drugs that other nations will import. This is highly supported by the International Conference on Harmonization of Technical Requirements for Registration of Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (ICH). Both the U.S. Government and U.S. industry encouraged this move to international standards.
