Biologics is a rapidly growing market, with a robust R&D pipeline bringing innovative therapies to treat patients. Today, there are 4,000 more active biologic programs in the pipeline compared to 2015, with biologics development programs growing 2.5 times faster than small molecules. New entrants into the biologics market are driving this rapid growth. As of 2018, emerging companies represented 84% of all early phase research.1 Not only is this segment driving R&D growth, but they are having commercial success in bringing their drugs to market. In 2018, 65% of new drugs launched were patented by emerging companies.1
