Similarly, in October 2018, Mundipharma, a UK-based company engaged in manufacturing, developing, and commercializing high-quality biosimilars for inflammatory diseases and oncology, acquired Cinfa Biotech. Mundipharma acquired all shares of Cinfa, including Pelmeg (pegfilgrastim, biosimilar). This acquisition is projected to expand Mundipharma’s biosimilar product portfolio. Cinfa Biotech was founded in 2013 as a part of Cinfa Group and is a Spanish biotechnology company that focuses on the development of biosimilars.

Moreover, Pegfilgrastim biosimilar are used in the treatment of low blood neutrophils levels and for fighting various infections in patients who go through radiation poisoning and chemotherapy. The products from pegfilgrastim biosimilar market are gaining immense traction across the world because of their cost-effectiveness than pegfilgrastim. Consequently, this depicts that the market for pegfilgrastim biosimilar will expand at a rapid pace in the coming years.

However, pegfilgrastim biosimilar market is anticipated to witness limitation in growth during the period of 2020 to 2030. This situation is attributed to several adverse effects of pegfilgrastim biosimilar. Acute respiratory distress syndrome, bone pain, and spleen rupture are included as some of the key adverse effects of pegfilgrastim biosimilar. This factor is further restraining the growth of the global pegfilgrastim biosimilar market.

Furthermore, the global pegfilgrastim biosimilar market has been seeing a substantial decline in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the measures taken to contain its spread.
