Key Takeaways of the Contract Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Market:
- The global contract pharmaceutical manufacturing market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3% during the forecast period, owing to rising need to outsource small molecules manufacturing and growing demand for generic drugs to fulfill consumer demand for cost-effective pharmaceuticals.
- Among service type segment, contract manufacturing organization (CMO) accounted to hold major market share in 2017. CMO offers manufacturing services ranging from small amounts for preclinical R&D to large volumes for commercial production, necessary for clinical trials purposes and commercialization.
- Among molecule type segment, small molecules accounted for highest revenue in 2017 in this market. Small-molecule drugs are an important and highly effective component of the bio/pharmaceutical portfolio, as it can be engineered to deliver strong therapeutic effect with small dose, unlike large molecules. Furthermore, clinical trials involving small-molecule therapeutics are simpler and less expensive than large-molecule drugs.
