A flurry of US biosimilar launches over the past few months has opened several molecules to true, multi-source competition, with a range of pricing strategies seen from competitors. However, some brands that already face biosimilar competition elsewhere in the world are still poised to enjoy a significant period of exclusivity in the US, such as AbbVie’s Humira.

Other expected generics include Viatris' Perforomist (formoterol fumarate), Pfizer's Sutent (sunitinib), Sanofi's Jevtana (cabazitaxel) and possibly Boehringer Ingelheim's Pradaxa.
Biosimilar spending in the US is expected to increase from $5.2bn in 2019 to $27bn in 2024, driven by increased penetration and new biosimilar entries, including for Humira, according to an IQVIA report.
Biosimilar competitors to Avastin, Herceptin and Rituxan and headwinds from COVID-19 are expected to have a CHF4.7bn negative impact in 2020, higher than the CHF4bn previously projected.
