INTRODUCTION Over the last decade, a steady rise has been observed in the annual number of approvals for various types of biologics (including monoclonal antibodies, cell therapies, recombinant proteins, vaccines and gene therapies).

New York, April 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Lyophilization Services Market for Biopharmaceuticals by Type of Biologic Lyophilized, Type of Primary Packaging System and Key Geographies : Industry Trends and Global Forecasts, 2022-2035" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06272145/?utm_source=GNW
In addition, more than 8,000 biological therapeutics are currently being evaluated in clinical trials, being conducted across the globe. Evidently, biologics have emerged as one of the fastest growing segments in the pharmaceutical industry. Driven by several advantages offered by biologics over small molecules (including high efficacy, target specificity and favorable safety profiles), the biopharmaceutical market is anticipated to witness continued and consistent growth over the next several years. However, there are a variety of challenges associated with such therapies. For instance, biological drugs are inherently less stable as compared to small molecules and, therefore, more prone to physical and chemical degradation. In order to achieve longer and commercially viable shelf lives, players are actively adopting the lyophilization (also known as freeze-drying) technique; it enables the production of dry stable biopharmaceutical formulations. In this context, it is worth highlighting that around 50% of the currently approved biopharmaceuticals are injectables. Of these, about one third of the drug candidates are being lyophilized.

Setting up in-house lyophilization capabilities and operations is an expensive and time-consuming process, which requires specialized lyophilization equipment and expertise. Considering the high capital investment and technical / routine operations-related challenges associated with lyophilization of biopharmaceuticals, a growing number of biologic developers are outsourcing their lyophilization operations to qualified contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs) in order to leverage their capabilities and yield cost savings opportunities. Presently, more than 105 contract manufacturers claim to have the required capabilities to offer lyophilization services for biotherapeutics. In addition, lyophilization service providers are entering into strategic alliances in order to consolidate their presence in this field and enhance existing capabilities to meet the growing demand for biologics. Driven by the increasing preference for outsourcing, continuous growth of the biological therapeutics pipeline and a steady rise in drug approvals, the lyophilization services market for biopharmaceuticals is likely to witness steady growth in the foreseen future.
