STUTTGART, Germany I April 4, 2018 I 2018 was another record year for global sales of branded recombinant therapeutic antibodies and proteins: US$ 202 mln (+7.3% vs previous year). Major contributing factor to the growth were sales of therapeutic antibodies which showed a continuous annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.1% over the last seven years. Antibodies now contribute over 70% to total biologics sales whereas sales of classical therapeutic proteins decreased by 7.4% in 2018 compared with the previous year, due to increasing use of biosimilar proteins and by changes of treatment paradigm, e.g in multiple sclerosis.
While sales of cancer antibodies still are growing fuelled by immuno-oncology antibodies (+54%), anti-inflammatory antibodies contribute to more than 50% of all antibody sales. The decrease of anti-TNF antibody sales is more than compensated by new anti-inflammatory antibodies
