Recent developments in pharmacology and biotechnology have been able to drive significant advances and innovation in understanding the root causes of various diseases; this has further aided in the discovery and development of more targeted treatment strategies. It is worth noting that such advances in the healthcare industry have made pharmaceutical development and CMO manufacturing processes even more complex. In addition, the rising competition within this domain amongst stakeholders has necessitated the need for biologics contract manufacturers to launch new products, cut operational costs and increase profits. Outsourcing has emerged as a prominent trend, especially for pharma CMO manufacturing and fill / finish operations, to meet the increasingly complex demands of the industry.
