The primary factor driving the use of contract manufacturing organizations in the pharmaceutical industry is the need for state-of-the-art processes and production technologies, which is essential for thriving in the market.
FREMONT, CA: The global pharmaceutical contract manufacturing and development market was valued USD 109.67 billion in 2019, and it is expected to reach USD 162.1 billion by 2025. With the increasing demand for generic medicines and biologics, for meeting the capital-intensive nature of the pharma business and the complex manufacturing requirements, many pharmaceutical companies have identified the potential profitability in collaborating with contract manufacturing organizations (CMO) for both clinical and commercial stage manufacturing.
In the pharmaceutical sector, companies need to stock their pipelines with new drugs to thrive. However, many do not have the resources to discover, develop, and manufacture products. Hence, the requirement for CMOs is quite significant. Outsourcing to CMOs allows companies to expand technical resources without increased overhead. The firm can manage its internal resources and costs by stressing on the core competencies and high-value projects while reducing infrastructure or technical staff.
As the contract manufacturing and development landscape continue to evolve, pharmaceutical companies will have several opportunities to further their pipelines in the upcoming years. Now that there is an increased reliance on outsourcing partners, the pharma industry is in dire need of finding experts during all stages of the drug development process. Contract development and manufacturing organizations (CDMO) are the answer to this to provide a greater expansion of services. Current CMO solutions can help build relationships between all multidisciplinary experts, creating an efficient and highly effective method to pharmaceutical development that most businesses have never experienced previously. This helps in quickly resolving issues as needed.
Leading pharma and biotechnology firms can be reassured that the modern CDMOs have innovative production platforms in place to provide a secure source for all complex challenges. As pharma companies evolve, so will be the challenges. CMOs help extract more value along the supply chain, thereby unlocking new opportunities for pharmaceutical firms. While the current market continues to evolve, it is more important than ever to optimize CMOs with the latest technology for profitable growth.
