Cell therapy is the type of therapy in which the patient’s own cells (autologous), or those from a healthy donor (allogeneic), can be genetically re-programmed to combat various diseases. In cell therapy, patients are injected with viable cells that are deemed to be capable of providing therapeutic benefit. It is important to highlight that cell and gene therapies have been used to treat an array of rare and genetic medical conditions, such as cancer, arthritis, dementia, leukemia and many more which are otherwise hard-to-treat. Currently, more than 30 cell and gene therapies have received FDA approvals, while several therapeutic candidates are in the clinical stages of development. In the past few years, cell therapy has garnered considerable attention from the players engaged in healthcare industry. This can be attributed to the vast potential of cellular therapies in the treatment of rare disorders and sufficient body of evidence validating the clinical benefits and therapeutic potential of this complex class of biologic drug.

The ultimate success of cell therapies is dependent on the safe and timely delivery of viable doses of therapeutic cells to the right patient. Further, in order to ensure the stability and integrity of cell therapy drug products, it is important to maintain specific temperature conditions (depending on the therapy) across the supply chain. These cell therapies also go through several stringent regulatory guidelines at every step of manufacturing in order to ensure the quality standards of the packaging product. Owing to these complexities in the cell therapy packaging domain, several drug developers are moving towards CROs in order to outsource their needs for packaging these drugs. Further, driven by the growing demand for cell-based therapeutics, the market for cell therapy packaging services is anticipated to witness substantial growth during the forecast period.
