Antibody Drug Conjugate Market Scenario


Antibody drug conjugates comprise three parts, mainly a specific antibody for binding, a cytotoxic agent designed to kill target cancer cells, and a chemical linker for attaching the cytotoxic agent to the antibody. These drug conjugates are regarded to be the new age of therapeutic agents. The combine effect of targeting specific types of cells and the killing ability of cytotoxic drugs make this drug conjugate the ideal one for treatment of various cancers. The success of this technology has become possible only with increasing technological advancements. The potential of a cytotoxic drug embedded in the antibody drug conjugate is increased by 100–1000 fold more than the potential of cytotoxic drug when it acts alone.


The key antibody-drug conjugates currently under the clinical trial is glembatumumab vedotin (CDX-011), a monoclonal antibody-drug conjugate developed by Celldex Therapeutics Inc. Other drugs under clinical trials include Polatuzumab Vedotin (RG7596) developed by Roche/Genentech, Indatuximab Ravtansine (BT-062) developed by Biotest, Anti-guanylyl Cyclase C/Anti-GCC ADC developed by Takeda: Millennium, Anti-PSMA ADC Therapeutics developed by Progenics Pharmaceuticals; Coltuximab Ravtansine (SAR3419) developed by Sanofi, Pinatuzumab Vedotin (RG7593) developed by Roche/Genentech, and Lifastuzumab Vedotin (RG7599) developed by Roche/Genentech.


The advancement in the medical technology is driving the global market for antibody drug conjugates. Moreover, the rising cases of cancer, increase in obese population, and growing ageing population are some of the key driving factors for the market. Further over, preclinical research, the increasing research activities on antibody therapies, more research on advanced drug discoveries, increasing research on oncology diseases, the growing collaboration between research institutes, and biopharmaceuticals and biotechnology companies are acting as a fuel to the market and are expected to drive the market of antibody drug conjugates within the forecast period. However, the high cost of procedures and the lack of fund could be the restraints for the growth of this market.


The antibody drug conjugate market is expected to grow at a CAGR of approximately 19% during the forecast period, 2017–2023.

Regional Analysis


The global antibody drug conjugate market consists of four regions, namely, America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa.


Americas dominated the global antibody drug conjugate market owing to the technological innovation, advancement in manufacturing processes, contribution of nanotechnology for developing Antibody Drug Conjugates (ADC). There are only three antibody drug conjugates that have received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The US is the largest market among other countries such as Mexico, Canada, and others. Though, this technology is being developed by many large pharmaceutical companies, the success rate is of developing an ADC very less and lies with very few companies.


The European antibody drug conjugate market is the second largest market followed by the Asia Pacific regions.


Asia Pacific is the emerging market in the global antibody drug conjugate market. The rising awareness among consumers along with growing government initiatives are driving the antibody drug conjugate market in this region. There are many products under the pipeline. These developments are carried out under license agreements.
