Forecasting future regulatory, commercial and legal challenges to advance biosimilars uptake taking place in London on 25 and 26 September 2019.
SMi Group are delighted to announce the 10th annual Biosimilars and Biologics Conference taking place on 25 and 26 September 2019. This year’s event will be our first global event taking place in London, UK. The event’s focus is to highlight the current challenges in the biosimilars market and discuss current undergoing plans or developments to overcome these challenges.

The biosimilars market is forecasted to reach US$23.6 billion by 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 31.70%. Factors driving the increase of this market include growing demand for biosimilar drugs due to their cost-effectiveness, growing incidence of chronic diseases, and strategic collaborations resulting in enhanced productivity and clinical trial activities.
With the expiry dates of major patents fast approaching, the emerging gap in the market for biosimilars is now a major attraction for manufacturers. As the availability of biosimilars could potentially reduce direct spending by US$54 billion by 2026, the question is what can current biosimilar producing companies do to join this market to benefit the patients, physicians and investors?

• HEAR about current strategies under development to overcome challenges with patents currently faced by many biosimilar developers
• DISCUSS the possible changes in regulatory approval of biosimilars in the UK post Brexit, and how this will impact market entry
• EXPLORE the latest methods in use to maintain the relationship between stakeholders, doctors and patients, with the influence of governing bodies
• REVIEW FDA regulations for the approval of biosimilars and the latest approvals
