Technological Advances in the Cancer Biologics Market
Technological advancements coupled with better understanding of the biology of cancer cells and studies on development of biologic agents to control cell growth has improved in the recent years. Focus of industry players on development of cancer biologics for treatment of several cancer types will increase its adoption in coming years. Growing awareness regarding adverse effects of anti-cancer drugs will surge the demand for technologically advanced biological therapy for cancer treatment. Development of biologics such as monoclonal antibodies, vaccines and cancer growth blockers will boost the demand among the patient population.


Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) have shown significant success in treating various types of cancers, particularly melanoma, lung cancer, and bladder cancer. Drugs like pembrolizumab (Keytruda) and nivolumab (Opdivo) work by blocking the proteins that inhibit the immune system’s response, thereby allowing immune cells to recognize and attack cancer cells. Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-cell (CAR-T) therapy has shown remarkable efficacy in treating certain blood cancers, such as acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL).

Oncolytic viruses and NGS technologies have advanced our understanding of the genetic basis of cancer and enabled personalized medicine approaches. Liquid biopsies provide a less invasive alternative to traditional tissue biopsies and can help monitor treatment response, detect minimal residual disease, and identify resistance mechanisms.

Advances in cell culture techniques and media optimization have led to increased productivity and higher yields in biologic drug production. Advances in chromatography techniques, including affinity chromatography, membrane chromatography, and continuous chromatography, have improved purification efficiency and scalability. Additionally, new filtration technologies and process steps have been developed to remove impurities and ensure product safety. These manufacturing advances in the cancer biologics market have contributed to increased efficiency, improved product quality, and enhanced scalability, ultimately leading to better access to biologic therapies for cancer patients.

For instance, development of preventive vaccines such as human papilloma vaccines (HPV) and hepatitis B vaccines (HBV) will help the business growth. Moreover, development of therapeutic cancer vaccines to inhibit growth of relapsed tumors that are refractory to surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy will further foster cancer biological therapy industry growth during the forecast timeline.

Did COVID-19 had a significant negative impact on the Cancer Biologics Market?
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the cancer biologics market, presenting both challenges and opportunities. On one hand, the pandemic disrupted healthcare systems worldwide, diverting resources and attention towards managing the outbreak and treating COVID-19 patients. This led to delays in cancer screenings, diagnoses, and treatments, including the administration of cancer biologics. Clinical trials for new cancer biologics also faced disruptions, impacting research and development efforts.

However, the pandemic also highlighted the importance of innovative and targeted therapies, such as cancer biologics, in providing effective treatment options. The vulnerabilities of cancer patients to COVID-19 necessitated a shift towards therapies that minimize immunosuppression and offer more personalized approaches. This increased the demand for cancer biologics, as they often exhibit better safety profiles and targeted mechanisms of action compared to traditional chemotherapy. Furthermore, the pandemic accelerated the adoption of telemedicine and remote monitoring, allowing healthcare providers to continue delivering cancer care and monitoring patients’ responses to biologic therapies. Virtual consultations and digital health platforms facilitated the management of cancer patients, reducing the risk of exposure to the virus and ensuring continuity of care. In addition, the pharmaceutical industry demonstrated resilience and agility in adapting to the challenges posed by the pandemic. Manufacturers and researchers swiftly adapted their operations to ensure the uninterrupted production and supply of cancer biologics. The pandemic also highlighted the importance of robust and resilient supply chains to maintain the availability of critical therapies. The integration of telemedicine, digital health, and remote monitoring is expected to continue, providing more accessible and patient-centric cancer care. The need for targeted therapies and personalized treatment options is likely to further drive the development and adoption of cancer biologics.
