Biosimilars are very far from reaching their full potential, in terms of market share and the savings to the health care system that they’re bringing.
By the numbers: The 7 biosimilars that are on the market are creating $253.8 million in savings, the paper estimates.
  • But that’s with market shares that are almost all in the single digits, meaning they’re barely making a dent against the innovator biologics that they’re competing with.
  • The one exception is Zarxio — a competitor to Neupogen, a drug administered to cancer patients — which makes up about 55% of the market.
  • A dozen more biosimilars have been approved in the U.S. but are not yet on the market. In total, biosimilars have been approved for 9 drug classes.
