It acts by binding to the tumour necrosis factor (TNF) and inhibiting its interaction with the p55 and p75 cell surface TNF receptors. It lyses surface tumour necrosis factor expressing cells. It is effective in modulating the biological responses induced or regulated by TNF involving the changes in the levels of adhesion molecules responsible for leukocyte migration. Adalimumab is developed by using phage display technology resulting in an antibody with human derived heavy and light chain variable regions and human IgG1:k constant regions. It is produced by recombinant DNA technology in a mammalian cell expression system. It is supplied as either a single-use, prefilled pen or as a single-use, 1 mL filled glass syringe.

Market Dynamics

Rising Prevalence of Autoimmune Disorders is Driving the Growth of the Market

The market is driven by the increasing demand for adalimumab with the increasing prevalence of autoimmune diseases. According to the National Stem Cell Foundation (NSCF), approximately 4% of the world’s population is suffering from one autoimmune disease. Rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, Crohn's disease, psoriatic arthritis, plaque psoriasis, and others are the most common autoimmune diseases. According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, approximately 2% to 3% of the global population i.e., 125 million people are suffering from Psoriasis worldwide. Approximately, 30% of patients with psoriasis develop psoriatic arthritis, chronic inflammatory arthritis that leads to joint deformations and disability. Ankylosing spondylitis affects around 0.1% and 1.4% of people worldwide. It is most frequent in men in comparison to women. According to the Arthitis Foundation, around 80% of people develops the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis in the age group at or before age of 30 years. Around, 5% of patients would develop ankylosing spondylitis in the age group of 45 or older.

Favorable Reimbursement Coverage for Adalimumab is Boosting the Market Growth

The better availability of the reimbursement coverage for adalimumab shall stimulate market growth. Around, 99% of national commercial, Medicare Part D, and Medicaid patients cover the adalimumab. Chinese regulators had also included adalimumab in the country’s National Reimbursement Drug List (NRDL). Chinese regulators provide with an average of 61% in price cuts of adalimumab with pharma companies.

Adverse Effects Associated with the use of Adalimumab is Hampering the Market Growth

The market is hindered by the adverse effects associated with the use of the adalimumab. Several adverse effects such as nausea, abdominal pain, hyperlipidemia, hematuria, hypercholesterolemia, back pain, rash, headache, hypertension, and others are observed among the patients. Redness, swelling or pain is observed at the site of injection of the adalimumab. It also increases the risk of developing a fungal, bacterial, and viral infection that can spread through the body. Opportunistic infections due to bacterial, mycobacterial, invasive fungal, viral, parasitic, or other opportunistic pathogens including aspergillosis, blastomycosis, candidiasis, coccidioidomycosis, histoplasmosis, legionellosis, listeriosis, pneumocystosis and tuberculosis have been observed among the patients treated with adalimumab.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The global adalimumab market has received immense impetus from the COVID-19 pandemic, as several institutes, organizations, and companies are focussing on evaluating the potential of adalimumab for the treatment of the COVID-19. There is increasing research and development activities for adalimumab for the COVID-19. It has been observed that the Covid-19 patients who had administered the anti-TNF therapies for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease and inflammatory arthritis were less likely to be hospitalised. The anti-TNF therapies are effective in neutralizing the TNF, a major component of the cytokine response part of the damaging excess inflammatory phase of COVID-19. Therefore, institutes and organizations are focussing on conducting clinical trials for examining the efficacy and safety of adalimumab among patients with COVID-19. For instance, in October 2020, Researchers at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom had planned to initiate a new clinical trial to evaluate the effectiveness of the adalimumab for the treatment of the COVID-19 patients in community care settings, primarily in care homes. The clinical trial i.e., AVID-CC would be led by the Oxford Clinical Trials Research Unit (OCTRU) and would enroll up to 750 patients from community care homes.


According to the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD) 2019, the estimation that the prevalence of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) was resulted in 3.26 million in 2019. Women are two to three times as likely to be affected in comparison to men. It has been observed that around one in 12 women and one in 20 men would develop an inflammatory autoimmune rheumatic disease during their life. According to Giegerich E 2018, the diagnosed prevalence of Crohn’s Disease was 6 cases per 100,000 in lower-income Asia-Pacific, 46 cases per 100,000 in high-income Asia-Pacific, 133 cases per 100,000 in Europe, and 210 cases per 100,000 in North America in 2017. The diagnosed prevalence of Crohn’s Disease is highest among people of age-group 40-54 years. The prevalence of ankylosing spondylitis was observed to be 23.8 per 10,000 in Europe, 16.7 per 10,000 in Asia, 31.9 10,000 in North America, 10.2 10,000 in Latin America and 7.4 per 10,000 in Africa.
