Global Marine Derived Drugs Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A Marine Derived Drug is a term used to describe a drug that has been isolated from marine life. Marine derived drugs are important because they can be used to treat diseases that have been resistant to traditional treatments.


Mollusks are gastropods that live in the sea and have a soft body. The most commonly used mollusk for drug development is the abalone which has been used to develop antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, blood pressure drugs and vaccines among others.


Sponge is a porous, hollow fiber that has been used as an absorbent for marine organisms. Marine sponges are used in the production of biopharmaceuticals such as vaccines and monoclonal antibodies owing to their ability to produce high levels of proteins. Sponge extracts have been reported to contain immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory compounds which may be useful in the development of drugs targeting autoimmune diseases, inflammatory processes or cancer.

Application Insights:

The market is segmented based on application into antitumor drugs, anti-cardiovascular drugs, antibiotics, antidiabetic drugs and others. In 2017, the anti-cancer segment dominated the global marine derived drug market owing to increasing cancer cases across the globe. The rising number of cancer cases has led to a growing demand for marine derived anticancer drugs which are effective against resistant tumor cells.

Antitumor Drugs held a significant share in 2017 due to high incidence of various types of cancers such as lung cancer and breast carcinoma among women which have become difficult for conventional treatment methods to treat due to resistance developed by tumor cells. This trend is expected continue over the forecast period with introduction of new products with enhanced efficacy coupled with fewer side effects than conventional therapies that will further boost industry growth during future years.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global marine derived drugs market in 2017. The presence of a large number of manufacturers and suppliers coupled with increasing R&D activities in this region is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period. In addition, high consumption of seafood is also driving demand for these products in this region. Increasing disposable income levels and growing consumer awareness regarding advanced therapies are some factors contributing to regional growth.

The Asia Pacific therapeutics sector has witnessed significant investment from various governments as well as private players over the past few years owing to its potential for rapid economic development along with an abundant supply of raw materials.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for marine derived drugs for the treatment of various diseases such as cancer, arthritis, and Alzheimer's disease.
  • Growing research and development activities in the field of marine derived drugs to develop novel therapeutics.
  • Rising number of collaborations between pharmaceutical companies and research institutes to develop new marine-based drugs.
  • increasing investment by government agencies in Marine Derived Drugs market research to find new sources for drug discovery
