China Aflibercept Market Research Report 2022-2031 – | Nation/World


DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–August 8, 2022–

The “Chinese Aflibercept Market Survey Report 2022-2031” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.comoffer.

Aflibercept is an anti-VEGF drug, primarily used to treat neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and other retinopathies caused by visual impairment. Aflibercept was jointly developed by Regeneron and Bayer. Regeneron has exclusive sales rights in the US market, while Bayer obtains exclusive sales rights outside the US. Their Aflibercept, EYLEA, was launched in China in 2018. As of July 2022, Bayer AG is the sole manufacturer in the Chinese market of Aflibercept.

According to this market research, after Aflibercept entered the Chinese market, the sales value of Aflibercept in China increased from CNY 8.3 million in 2018 to CNY 238 million in 2021. The annual growth rate in 2021 was 116% which slowed down due to the covid19 outbreak. The CAGR of sales value of aflibercept in China is 206% from 2018 to 2021.

The analyst analyzes that as the epidemic situation has improved and hospitals resume their operations, the sales of Aflibercept will experience recovery growth from 2023 to 2026. Moreover, the sales will also increase due to the market expansion. Currently, China has only approved two indications for Aflibercept, including the treatment of AMD and the treatment of DME.

However, Aflibercept had five indications approved worldwide, which means that sales will continue to grow as the number of indications increases. On the other hand, although the anti-VEGF ophthalmic drug market to which Aflibercept belongs accounts for the largest market share in the ophthalmic drug industry, the penetration rate of the anti-VEGF drug is still low.

The penetration rate of the anti-VEGF drug is around 1% in China, while it exceeds 5% in the United States. Market demand has not yet reached saturation, sales will continue to increase. In addition, Aflibercept was included in the national health insurance catalog at the beginning of 2020, so the price was lowered, which reduces the burden on patients and will boost sales in the future.

Qilu Pharmaceutical, a local Chinese pharmaceutical company, received CDE (CENTER FOR DRUG EVALUATION, NMPA) approval for its marketing authorization application for aflibercept intravitreal injection in April 2022, which is the first biosimilar application for aflibercept in China.

According to this market research, a number of other pharmaceutical companies in China are in the process of generating aflibercept, such as Clover Biopharmaceuticals’ aflibercept intraocular injection, which is in the clinical phase of application, and Shandong Boan Biotechnology Co.

The generic version of aflibercept is expected to enter the Chinese market within the next five years, but is unlikely to have a significant impact on Bayer’s original drug in the short term.
