·14-min read

INTRODUCTION Around 90% of the drug candidates in the current development pipeline and close to 40% of marketed pharmacological products, have been associated with concerns related to solubility and / or permeability.

New York, Aug. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Lipid Contract Manufacturing Market by Type of Lipid, Company Size, Scale of Operation and Key Geographical Regions : Industry Trends and Global Forecasts, 2021-2030" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06130497/?utm_source=GNW
, In this context, considering modern regulatory standards, a large number of potential therapeutic leads fail to clear the clinical evaluation phase and enter the market, owing to poor bioavailability. Over time, innovators in the biopharmaceutical industry have developed a number of ways to improve / augment physiochemical properties and ultimately, the drug-like behavior of pharmacological substances. Amidst other alternatives, lipid nanoparticles and the use of various lipid-based excipients (which improve permeability across biological membranes), have garnered the attention of drug developers. , In fact, the novel mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccines use lipid nanoparticles to deliver the active ingredient of the preventive intervention to the required site of action, which is within target antigen presenting cells in the human body. Moreover, many other companies are using the aforementioned lipid-based solutions to re-formulate existing product candidates in order to improve their bioavailability. As a result, the demand for lipid drug carriers and excipients has grown considerably. However, for some of the lipids that have medical applications, the associated manufacturing processes are highly complex, capital-intensive, and fraught with multiple challenges. Some of the major issues related to the production of GMP grade lipids include the need for specialized expertise (especially in the case of lipid nanoparticles), lack of facilities with the necessary infrastructure and capacity to produce the required quality of substances, as well as concerns related to storage, safety and efficacy.

Considering the technical and routine operations-related challenges, an increasing number of pharmaceutical companies have demonstrated the preference to outsource their respective lipid production operations to specialized service providers. The benefits of engaging CMOs for lipid manufacturing are numerous; for instance, contracting a supplier for medical grade lipids enables sponsors to leverage new technologies (available with the service provider), access larger capacities and achieve greater operational flexibility. Presently, there are several contract manufacturers and technology providers that claim to have the required capabilities to manufacture lipid-based drug delivery systems (such as liposomes / lipid nanoparticles) and lipid excipients. However, the global expertise and capabilities for producing GMP grade lipids is presently limited. , As a result, many of the aforementioned companies are actively trying to consolidate their presence in this field, by entering into strategic alliances to broaden their respective service portfolios and lipid manufacturing capabilities. On the other hand, recently, a number of deals were inked between vaccine developers and CMOs in order to cater to the urgent need for lipid-based solutions for formers’ respective COVID-19 vaccines. Considering the benefits of using lipids to improve drug-like properties, we believe that the demand for high quality lipids is likely to drive commendable growth within the specialty contract manufacturing market in the coming years.
