Changing Pharmaceutical Business Dynamics Demanding Flexibility in Manufacturing

The pharmaceutical industry is changing, and as a result, firms are facing new challenges that need them to rethink their supply chains and manufacturing processes. Huge R&D and production costs, as well as onerous constraints, restricted operational efficiency, high inventories, and long cycle times, have long been associated with the industry, particularly in biotechnology. Despite these difficulties, the industry has maintained strong profit margins until recently.

This is no longer the case since a plethora of variables is playing havoc on profit margins, including greater government regulation, counterfeiting, and generic competition, as well as shorter patent protection terms and scientific-technical breakthroughs. In today's changing economic climate, integrated planning and scheduling solutions are crucial for developing the manufacturing flexibility that businesses require to remain competitive.

Growing Acceptance of Single Use Systems Across Biopharmaceuticals Sector

In particular, the introduction & adaption of single use systems (SUS) for the biopharmaceutical sector has been a crucial facilitator in addressing the need for more flexibility. SUS has proved to be versatile and scalable, and its popularity is growing as it is adopted in new industries. SUS, like any new technology, requires expertise and solid advice on whether to use it and when to continue with traditional stainless-steel solutions. It is becoming more widely employed in downstream operations, from upstream bioreactors through harvesting solutions to formulation and packing of biopharmaceutical medicinal products.

New Solutions to Provide Necessary Agility &Flexibility to the Worldwide Pharmaceutical Sector

Pharmaceutical facility planning needs new solutions to deliver the agility and flexibility required by the new pharma reality. One example is intelligent automation. Modern pharmaceutical manufacturing is heavily reliant on well-controlled computer systems, & much of the automated infrastructure is becoming obsolete, unable to meet future economic and regulatory demands. These are obviously crucial in the larger context of achieving high flexibility and intelligent integration, but they necessitate careful preparation in collaboration with experts who are familiar with commercially available solutions, their benefits, and potential hazards.

Looking ahead ten years, it's difficult to picture the pharmaceutical industry not capitalizing on technological advancements in the robot sector. As compared to most other businesses, the pharmaceutical industry lags significantly behind in the usage of robot technology. Despite the reality that there are arising number of industrial robots ready to be utilized in the highly regulated pharmaceutical industry, the technology's recognition is still lacking. Flexible solutions for aseptic processing, high-potency substance handling, complex assembly processes, and other procedures necessitate robotics and provide significant benefits that only a few organizations have attained to date. It's also worth noting that people are the primary cause of contamination of pharmaceutical items with undesired compounds.

Batch failures due to human error and contamination will be reduced if the number of individuals directly participating in the production processes is reduced. Another advantage is the elimination of the need for costly clean room facilities and all the time-consuming and costly gowning processes. Overall system integration is progressing to new heights, which is a key component of flexible production solutions in the new pharma world. These technologies are still so new that many companies regard them as a lot of hype, yet the potential is there. The pharmaceutical business, as is often the case, will be a late adopter, but it will catch up over the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact on Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Sector

Pharmaceutical firms are responding to the quick difficulties presented by supply chain disruptions & the need to adjust business procedures in these critical times. If the present COVID-19 pandemic continues for a long time, it may have an influence on the availability of active materials and chemicals (mostly from China), as well as pharmaceutical import and export. There's also the possibility of short & long-term negative effects on pharmaceutical production and research & development activities, as well as delays on projects that aren't tied to the core supply chain management processes. Pharma businesses must respond, recover, and survive while the entire impact of the worldwide epidemic is yet unknown.

Lower costs have been a major factor in the relocation of a large portion of manufacturing capacity to China and India in the last ten years or more. As a result, there has been significant growth in manufacturing volumes in these nations, and about 40% of registered API sites are in India or China, according to FDA statistics from 2019. Manufacturing shifts to Asia have had a direct influence on supply chain reliability, resulting in medicine shortages.
