Biosimilars: A New Kind Of Innovation

Executive Summary

The lesson from first-generation biosimilars is that these aren't just small-molecule style copies. They require significant clinical and commercial support to overcome prescriber skepticism. For those lining up to tap into the next-generation opportunity, biosimilars represent a new kind of innovation, where the novelty lies in a drug's value-focused pricing, quality, cost-effective production, and in peripherals such as support-services and means of delivery. Although biosimilar market dynamics will vary from molecule to molecule, this emphasis on price and value rather than scientific breakthrough exemplifies a new definition of innovation in the biopharma sector.
