PharmSource - Contract Dose Manufacturing Industry by the Numbers: Composition, Size, Market Share and Outlook - 2018 Edition


The motivation for pharma companies outsourcing their manufacturing is often to do with lacking expertise, equipment, or cost reduction (especially for small to mid-sized CMOs) in development of their products API or dose. For clinical dose manufacturing, there is a high risk associated with the pipeline drug product and as such using a CMO for this mitigates risk for pharma companies that may otherwise have to invest in equipment and facilities. This report, the 2018 version in this annual series, characterizes the contract dose manufacturing industry along a number of quantitative dimensions, including number and type of participants, market size, market shares of the top CMOs and profitability. We also assess the outlook for the industry. This report is an improvement over previous reports because it utilizes GlobalDatas Intelligence Center Drug database to provide deeper analysis of the industry.

Most commercial dose companies have solid dose manufacturing facilities, as new products become molecularly complex issues arise such as those surrounding bioavailability and formulation (delivery technologies are becoming increasingly important) for products that are often have poor solubility or are highly potent (Hickman et al. 2018). As batches are becoming smaller due to an increasing use of orphan drugs and drugs for patient sub populations such as pediatrics, the ability for flexible and small-scale is becoming particularly desirable. These two trends will affect consolidation trends for CMOs as certain technologies are increasingly sought after and will also affect dose related revenue growth as many CMOs will not have the capabilities to provide the desired service for a changing drug products in a decreasing patient population. PharmSource predicts that dose related CMO revenues will grow more slowly than for their API counterparts. Many dose CMOs will have to improve their formulation and drug delivery technologies to compete for clients with products that are often have poor solubility or are highly potent
