Biocon to enter the US Insulin Market

Biocon will enter the market with its interchangeable biosimilar product Semglee that has received approvals and via Aspart, that the company is hoping will be approved by the first quarter of 2022.

With the approval of Aspart, Biocon said it will become the first company to receive approvals for two interchangeable insulin drugs in the US, helping it make a strong entry into that market.

The company's executive chairperson Kiran Mazumdar Shaw said,

  • Biocon has demonstrated the ability to take very complex biosimilars to the US market, first with trastuzumab, pegfilgrastim and Semglee, and soon I hope bevacizumab and aspart. To take five products to the US and succeed is not a joke.

Biocon's success in getting US regulators to approve its insulin drugs is an example of the company's growing clout in the biosimilars market, which Mazumdar-Shaw said is a "future-proof" business with more opportunities for growth emerging from it.

With this, Biocon has a first-mover advantage as right now it's the only company from India that has built credibility and has the science plus vertical integration required to get in to the US market.
