The Global Pharmaceutical Contract Development & Manufacturing Market is estimated to be $107.2 billion 2021 and is expected to reach $152.6 billion by 2026 growing at a CAGR of 7.3%.

The Pharmaceutical Market is changing very rapidly. Emerging global markets and pricing pressures are responsible for the transformation of these companies. In such a scenario, providers to the pharmaceutical industries such as contract developers and manufacturers need to transform to sustain in the market and match the competitiveness of the marketplace. Distinguished offerings to the customers are the only way to grow the business. Those that can fill this gap by taking benefit of the transformative nature of the industry can only emerge as market leaders.

One of the reasons for the increase in the pharmaceutical contract development and manufacturing industry is the growth of developing biotech. Most of the companies are continuously involved in the development of complex drug compounds to address a specific disease. Most of the companies lack the infrastructure required for formulation, clinical, and regulatory agency submission. Commonly, the final decision for these companies is to sell to a big player in the pharma or a biotech market. A partnership with a pharmaceutical contract manufacturer can provide another viable option. By working cooperatively, an emergent biotech company, an established donor company, and a pharmaceutical contract manufacturer can move a product into the global markets.

The increasing level of mergers and acquisition activities are resulting in the consolidation of the contract service providers. The growth of the Pharmaceutical Contract Development and Manufacturing Market is driven by the increasing demand for generics across the globe. The increasing investment in pharmaceutical R&D by the companies pushes the growth of the market upwards.

The pharmaceutical contract development and manufacturing market are hindered by the inadequate capacity utilization of manufacturing facilities by the companies. The poor-capacity utilization of the manufacturing unit is caused due to the inefficiency of different sub-processes involved in the production process, which further results in low production. The low production is responsible for decreased revenue, thus affecting the overall pharmaceutical contract development and manufacturing market.
