Antibody Drug Conjugates Market Insights: Industry Size, Key Trends, Growth Prospects, Emerging Demands, and Forecast Up to 2028

In July 2023, BeiGene and DualityBio entered into a partnership to advance differentiated antibody drug conjugate (ADC) therapy for solid tumors.


Northbrook, IL 60062 -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/20/2023 -- The Antibody Drug Conjugates (ADC) industry represents a cutting-edge and rapidly evolving sector within the field of biopharmaceuticals. ADCs are a class of targeted cancer therapies that combine the specificity of monoclonal antibodies with the potency of cytotoxic drugs, delivering highly targeted treatment to cancer cells while sparing healthy tissue. Over recent years, the ADC industry has witnessed substantial growth, driven by advancements in antibody engineering, linker technology, and payload selection, resulting in a robust pipeline of promising ADC candidates across various cancer types. With several ADCs already approved by regulatory agencies and many more in clinical development, the industry holds significant promise for improving the treatment landscape for cancer patients, offering the potential for enhanced efficacy and reduced side effects compared to traditional chemotherapy. As research and development efforts continue to expand, the ADC industry is poised to make substantial contributions to the future of oncology and personalized medicine.

Antibody Drug Conjugates (ADC) Market in terms of revenue was estimated to be worth $9.7 billion in 2023 and is poised to reach $19.8 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 15.2% from 2023 to 2028 according to a new report by MarketsandMarkets™.

The major factors driving the growth of the market are collaborations & partnerships among market players operating in the market, increasing focus on the development of new ADCs and frequent approval from the FDA for new ADCs. Robust products under clinical studies and increased use of ADCs as combination therapy are likely to uplift market growth in coming years.

The Kadcyla segment dominated the market in 2022.

Based on product, the global antibody drug conjugates market is segmented into Kadcyla, Enhertu, Adcetris, Padcev, Trodelvy, Polivy and others. In 2022, the Kadcyla held a dominant share owing to rise in the prevalence of cancer and increased use of ADCs for the treatment of cancer, which is one of the major factors driving the segmental growth. Furthermore, increased approvals for various disease indications for adcertis are likely to drive segmental growth in coming years.

The breast cancer segment accounted for the largest share of the disease type segment in the antibody drug
conjugates market in 2022.

The breast cancer segment is the fastest growing segment and accounted for the largest share of the market in 2022. The large share of this segment can be attributed increasing prevalence of breast cancer across the globe. The launch of biosimilars is further likely to have a positive impact on segmental growth. For instance, in May 2021, Zydus launched Ujvira, the first antibody drug conjugate (ADC) biosimilar for treating both early and advanced HER2-positive breast cancer.

The Asia Pacific region will be the fastest-growing region of the antibody drug conjugates market in 2022.

The Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment of the market. The growth of the antibody drug conjugates markets in the region is driven by a rising emphasis on strategic initiatives such as partnerships, collaborations & expansion and increased adoption of ADCs among the patent population. The rising prevalence of cancer and increased investment in research & development of the launch of novel ADCs in the region are some of the major factors anticipated to upsurge the market growth.
