Opdivo and Revlimid to compete for the top spot in 2022, while Humira is expected to step down following biosimilar launch.

EvaluatePharma sellside consensus forecast finds that Opdivo, Bristol-Myers Squibb’s anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody, will be the number one selling product worldwide in 2022, with sales of $14.6bn.

However, following the recent setback in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), Revlimid could take the crown with expected sales of $13bn in 2022 provided that Humira loses ground following the potential launch of biosimilars (current forecast still positions Humira at number two with $13.6bn in 2022).

In the PD-1 gold rush, Merck’s Keytruda – currently anticipated to reach close to $6bn in 2022 – is expected to take advantage of Opdivo’s recent setback in NSCLC, while Roche’s Tecentriq is expected to reach $5.3bn in 2022.

Only three products currently in R&D are present in the top 50, the biggest of which is Roche’s Ocrevus, a phase 3 anti-CD20 MAb for the treatment of multiple sclerosis. It is expected to launch worldwide in December 2017.
