The global market for Pharmaceutical Contract Manufacturing is projected to reach US$25.3 billion by 2022, driven by the increasing demand for drugs in parallel to growing global healthcare burden; and the rising focus on cost containment as pharmaceutical companies face shrinking profit margins due to competition from generics and biosimilars, patent expiry of blockbuster drugs and the ensuing aggravation of pricing pressures and the competitive need to increase time-to-market through resource management. A key trend in the market is the increase in small batch productions and small-volume contracts. The United States represents the largest market worldwide supported by aggressive healthcare reforms and migration to value based healthcare that encourages replacement of branded drugs with generics, biologicals and biosimilars. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 8.2% through the analysis period, led by the emergence of low cost Asian countries with huge talent pool as hubs for outsourced services and growing investments by CMOs in acquiring technological capabilities and expertise to keep abreast of the manufacturing requirements imposed by the growing complexity of new drugs under development.
