Market Overview

Leading industry players are focusing on the development and launching of next-generation biotherapeutics to treat serious life-threatening diseases, which is expected to propel biologics contract manufacturing demand. The number of biotech patents applied for has been growing at approximately 23% annually.

Currently, over 1,500 biomolecules have been undergoing clinical trials, which are targeting several types of diseases. The expected success rate of biologics has so far doubled as compared to small molecule products, which is pushing biologics contract manufacturing demand. For instance, according to the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, over US$ 57 billion biologic sales will be off-patent per year by 2020.

Global biologics contract manufacturing demand is anticipated to reach 8 Mn liters (MnL) by the end of 2030. Biopharmaceuticals contract development and manufacturing (CDMO) services are expected to grow at a double-digit growth rate, owing to a huge pipeline of therapeutics and the COVID-19 pandemic, with limited capability of biopharmaceutical contract development and manufacturing organizations (CDMOs), and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 20% during the forecast period (2020-2030).
