There had already been many transformations in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry in 2019. What new technologies is 2020 bringing in the industry?

FREMONT, CA: With each passing day, scientists and researchers are coming up with new technologies and innovations to deal with emerging dangerous diseases and plagues. 2020 has already begun. The following are some of the trends in the pharma industry in 2020.

1. Extending biosimilar markets because of biologic patent expirations

Since the pharmaceutical regulatory agencies deal with legal security and procedural standards for biosimilars and the public clamors for affordable drugs and more access to pharmaceuticals, manufacturing companies need to adapt to the latest markets. They anticipate biosimilar drug markets to increase around the globe. It is noticeable in the areas like Latin American countries as they have their own R&D for producing and commercializing patent expired biologic drugs.

2. Big data transform the pharmaceutical industry

With the increasing global market, pharmaceutical manufacturing needs to adjust and conform to what is coming in the future. The new and transforming global markets enhance data sets in the R&D, and the U.S. faces new completion. Conventional paper tracking investigation in CAPA processing will experience a boost with software solutions in assessing data with lesser costs and better results.

3. Upgraded compressed air technology

Because of the misunderstandings surrounding certain regulations, dependable monitoring, and quality standards have slipped beneath the radar in manufacturing risk management. Still, pharmaceutical manufacturers are navigating the ISO 8573-1 internationally approved guidelines for assuring maximum air quality for the specific procedure and product they are manufacturing. The air quality classes detected by the ISO 8573:2010 directives display that compressed air creates the purest air. The compressed air doesn’t contain particles, micro-organisms, and other forms of water and oil, including vapors, liquids, and aerosols. However, frequent testing is needed for supervising these contaminants in certain sensitive areas and manufacturing processes.

4. Continual processing and new mixing technology features

Mixing technology includes characteristics like enhanced data documenting quality, increased speed of the continuous processing, and formula accuracy, which makes it capable of converting raw materials into finished products within minutes. This reduces the requirement for huge storage tanks and batch mixers. Flexible certain controls meet the requirements of multiple manufacturers. The mixers are also designed for sanitation and easy cleaning for decreasing contamination risks in pharmaceutical manufacturing plants.

Technology is already transforming the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry. Still, more has to come.
