Significance of CDMO in the Pharmaceutical Industry

Pharma Tech Outlook | Monday, December 14, 2020

CDMOs have become an essential part of the drug development and manufacturing process as most big pharma companies are dependent on outsourced services.

FREMONT, CA: Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO) has proven to be of great value to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, offering potential and cost benefits in home production. Overall, there is a strong link between company size and outsourcing. The small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have less stakeholder and organizational barriers to the decision-making process and can better streamline their partnerships with CDMO. In addition to alleviating administrative difficulties due to lack of technical skills and production capacity, SMEs have always relied on CDMO to manufacture development products. In addition, due to the impact of time and cost, SMEs typically lack the cash flow required to start commercial production, making it impossible to build its manufacturing infrastructure. Large pharmaceutical companies suffer from the inherent structural difficulty of multiple decision-makers and budget owners, contributing to procurement strategies that are not always well aligned with outsourcing activities. However, CDMO is paving the way for growth in space as large pharmaceutical companies seek to bring together more and more suppliers and build deeper strategic partnerships.

The Pharmaceutical Sector at A GlanceTop CMOs

The global pharmaceutical sector's annual sales in 2023 will increase due to global economic growth, population growth and aging, and new product launches. Small molecules will account for most of the pharmaceutical market sales in 2019, and it is expected that this segment will maintain the highest market share despite modest growth. Originator prescription drugs are the largest component of the sector, but generics are growing three times faster as a significant number of drug patents are revoked in the coming years. Although production in the macromolecular industry is significantly lower than in the small molecule sector, these agents (bio pharmacy, biosimilars, cell, and gene therapy) are among the best in cell and gene therapy (CGT). A rapidly growing market segment. Pharma sees CHT as an essential growth factor because of its potential for breakthrough scientific advances that treat traditionally incurable diseases.

CDMO Market Overview 

The overall CDMO market is projected to outpace the pharmaceutical market's growth by 2023, primarily driven by outsourcing's continued overall growth. CDMO continues to invest aggressively in capacity expansion to support growth in response to the growing demand for outsourced manufacturing services, especially in areas of the market where capacity bottlenecks exist. Although commercial manufacturing has the largest share of the CDMO market, clinical trial services, including clinical manufacturing, play an essential role in fixing products early in the product life cycle. Investigate the role of CDMO in providing clinical and commercial services and its impact on bio pharmacy and small molecule production.
