Antibody based pharmacological interventions have become one of the fastest growing segments of the biopharmaceutical industry, with over 120 approved monoclonal antibodies, and close to 900 registered trials for clinical evaluation. In fact, it is worth highlighting that, these interventions are expected to contribute to the global sales surpassing USD 300 billion by 2025.

The therapeutic efficacy of a drug determines its ability to produce the desired therapeutic effects in treating a particular disease. A drug with high therapeutic efficacy improves treatment outcomes by increasing target specificity, reducing side-effects and extending half-life of the drug. Therefore, in order to enhance the therapeutic efficacy of antibodies, various Fc and glycoengineering strategies have been developed recently. Fc engineering increases the effector functions (such as antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC), antibody-dependent cellular phagocytosis (ADCP), and complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC)) and half-life of the molecule by modifying their Fc regions. On the other hand, glycoengineering optimizes pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties of therapeutic antibodies by controlling glycan composition in the molecule. These engineered antibodies are widely used in enhancing anti-tumor potential of monoclonal antibodies. 

Currently, several drug developers, along with technology providers in this domain are actively developing various Fc and glycoengineered antibodies. In addition, several big pharma players have also demonstrated their interest in these engineered antibodies and are investing both time as well as capital in Fc and glycoengineered antibodies market. Presently, over 150 Fc and glycoengineered antibodies have been approved globally. Notable examples of recently approved products (in 2023) include Retifanlimab, Elranatamab, Glofitamab and Tislelizumab.

Owing to the promising antibody based drug pipeline and ongoing technical advancements, coupled with the growing interest of biopharmaceutical developers, we believe that the Fc and glycoengineered antibodies market is likely to witness a commendable market growth during the forecast period.
