  • 22. Conclusions
    • Biosimilars represent a distinct new sector of the biopharmaceutical industry
    • The emergence of the biosimilars sector is driving increased competition and enhanced innovation around biologic products and processes
    • Biosimilar companies will compete primarily in the incremental and substantial areas of the innovation space
  • 23. Conclusions
    • Layered incremental innovations will result in meaningful cost reductions and enhanced product offerings for patients and customers
    • Over the past several years biopharmaceutical companies have increased their emphasis on conservative innovation projects
      • Biosimilars competition may encourage companies to reverse this trend
    • Innovation project portfolios should be carefully managed to ensure the best use of industry and health authority resources
