Increasing Efforts by Major Players Positively Impacted Market Progress During the Pandemic

This market was positively impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic due to increasing efforts by several key players. The sudden spike in COVID-19 infections forced governments to impose stringent norms on travel, transport, and production activities to stop infection spread. These norms resulted in supply chain disruptions and lack of raw materials. However, major players deployed part-time shifts, industrial automation, and reduced capacities to reduce infection spread and continue their business. Further, the post-COVID-19 phase empowered companies to operate efficiently and boost productivity. Companies opted for automation to recover losses and boost sales. These factors elevated market growth during the pandemic.

Rising Autoimmune Diseases to Boost Market Progress

Immunology drugs are medicines capable of elevating and suppressing the immune system. Increasing autoimmune disorders globally are likely to fuel market progress. For example, as per National Stem Cell Foundation’s research, nearly 4% of the global population suffers from at least one among 80 autoimmune diseases. Further, the rising adoption of these drugs among the global population and the increasing announcement of efficient and better drugs are likely to enhance product adoption. Moreover, the increasing adoption of autoimmune drugs in developing and developed nations may drive the immunology market growth.

Key Players Deploy Acquisitions to Strengthen their Product Portfolio

The prominent companies operating in the market devise acquisitions to boost their product offerings. For example, Pfizer completed the acquisition of Arena Pharmaceuticals in February 2022 to develop effective therapies to cure several immune-inflammatory diseases in patients. This strategy enabled Pfizer to strengthen its product portfolio and boost its brand image. Further, several market players devise innovations, mergers, novel product announcements, partnerships, research and development, and industrial automation to reinforce their market position.
