Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the pharmaceutical industry had its second-best year in terms of drugs approved by the US FDA. This year saw the approval of 53 drugs, which was only surpassed in 2018 by 59 pharmaceutical agents. The 53 new chemical entities and 13 biologics approved in 2020 include 10 monoclonal antibodies, 2 antibody–drug conjugates, 3 peptides, and 2 oligonucleotides. In the last three years (2018–2020), the FDA has approved 160 drugs, compared to only 21 in 2010. This increase in the number of approved products worldwide can be attributed to increased investments by biopharmaceutical companies in the development of biologics and biosimilars.
