The global filgrastim market size is expected to reach $ 953. 4 million by 2027, increasing to a market growth of 8.0% CAGR during the forecast period. Filgrastim refers to the recombinant DNA-derived granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF), which is typically used to cure weak blood neutrophils.

New York, December 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Announces the Release of the “Global Filgrastim Market By Drug Type, By Indication, By Distribution Channel, By Regional Outlook, Industry Analysis Report and forecast, 2021 – 2027 “-
It is especially used in cases where lukapheresis is linked to the increase in white blood cells. In addition, there are some side effects from using filgrastim, including chest pain, hair loss, joint discomfort, and vomiting.

Filgrastim injections are used in the healing process of neutropenia which is a condition of having low white blood cell count which can be caused by anti-cancer drugs. This injection is an artificial form of a substance, which is naturally created in a person’s body, called colony stimulating factor. In addition, filgrastim helps the bone marrow to develop new white blood cells.

COVID-19 impact assessment

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on the workflow of the healthcare sector around the world. The disruption of the supply chain of various products and the temporary ban on manufacturing units have had a negative impact on the filgrastim market. The pandemic has increased pressure on the world’s health systems. More staff and resources have been reallocated to treat COVID patients who previously cared for patients with different illnesses. A decline in recruitment for trials and an impediment to the planned publication of the latest oncology studies would affect the filgrastim market. Some biosimilar developers have also entered the development phase of non-biosimilar products to find a treatment for the SAR-VOC-2 virus. Some filgrastim biosimilars are also used to treat patients with COVID-19.

Market growth factors:

Increase in the aging population

There is an increase in the geriatric population in various countries of the world, which would fuel the demand for biopharmaceuticals like filgrastim biosimilars to cure side effects caused by the treatment of many chronic diseases like cancer. People over the age of 65 have increased worldwide, and age-related chronic diseases have also increased. These older people are more vulnerable to chronic illnesses.

Growing cases of chronic disease

Chronic disease refers to a group of diseases including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and others. There is an increase in the number of chronic diseases among the population across the world. Factors such as sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy diet and tobacco consumption are responsible for chronic diseases. Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, causing around 10 million deaths in 2020. Of the total number of cancer deaths, approx. 70% of deaths were reported in low- and middle-income countries.

Market restriction factors:

Strict government regulations and policies

Pharmaceutical companies that develop biosimilars like filgrastim face a major challenge in the approval process of their products. Different countries have different approval process for any drug, treatment, vaccine, and medical device; however, these approval procedures are difficult to follow. This is due to the various regulations and evidence required to prove the efficacy and safety of this product.

Drug type Prospects

Based on drug type, the market is segmented into biosimilars and biologics. Among the two, the biosimilars segment is expected to show a promising CAGR due to its easy availability and low cost in emerging countries.

Outlook indication

On the basis of indication, the market is segmented into Chemotherapy Induced Neutropenia, Chronic Neutropenia, and other indications. Among these, the chemotherapy-induced neutropenia segment acquired the highest share of the filgrastim market in 2020 and is expected to continue to dominate during the forecast period.

Distribution channel outlook

By distribution channel, the filgrastim market is divided into retail pharmacies, hospital pharmacies and online pharmacies. Among all, the hospital pharmacy market is expected to experience substantial growth during the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for filgrastim in hospitals all over the world.

Regional perspectives

By region, the filgrastim market is analyzed North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. North America has emerged as the leading region in the filgrastim market in 2020 with the highest market share and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. This is due to the developed health care infrastructure, the increasing prevalence of infectious diseases, favorable reimbursement policies, and the accessibility of grants and research funding.
