Cytotoxic Drugs and HPAPI Manufacturing Market

The cytotoxic drugs and HPAPI manufacturing market is estimated to be worth $9.6 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.6% during the forecast period. Aided by the ongoing advancements in clinical pharmacology and oncology research, as well as the rising demand for targeted therapies, high potency active pharmaceutical ingredients (HPAPIs) and cytotoxic drugs have emerged as one of the key areas of interest for researchers and drug developers worldwide. As is well known, high potency APIs are pharmacologically active compounds which are capable of eliciting a biological response even at extremely low concentrations. Specifically, high potency APIs are categorized on the basis of their toxicity, occupational exposure limit (OEL) and pharmacological potency. OEL is defined as the maximum admissible exposure to a physical or chemical hazard, for a specific period of time (usually 8 hours), without endangering the health and safety of workers; typically, highly potent compounds have an OEL less than or equal to 10 µg / m3. It is worth highlighting that HPAPIs offer a range of benefits over conventional APIs, including high target specificity, retention (in their active form) within the body for longer durations, and fewer side effects. As a result, at present, such products are being developed / evaluated for the treatment of a myriad of indications, including asthma, autoimmune disorders, cancer, diabetes and hormone imbalances.

Current Opportunities in the Cytotoxic Drugs and HPAPI Manufacturing Market

The cytotoxic drugs and HPAPI manufacturing market is presently considered as one of the most powerful and dynamic sectors of the pharmaceutical industry. At present, more than 40% of the total number of drugs are highly potent in nature. Further, around 60% of the HPAPIs are being developed against oncological indications. Considering the upsurge in demand for novel anti-cancer therapeutics, including antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs), high potency compounds have generated significant interest among several researchers and industry stakeholders.

Market Drivers for Contract Manufacturing in Cytotoxic Drugs and HPAPI Manufacturing Market

The manufacturing of highly potent APIs and cytotoxic drugs requires an adequate working environment (to prevent cross contamination within multi-product assets), stringent manufacturing protocols (to comply with the established regulatory standards) and a trained workforce (to satisfactorily handle highly potent materials). In addition, it requires an expensive infrastructure, which is often complex to engineer, install and maintain. As a result, various companies rely on third party service providers to leverage their technologies for manufacturing highly potent and cytotoxic compounds and achieve greater operational flexibility. The inherent expertise of CMOs is believed to be capable of enabling reduction in the time-to-market a product and offer significant cost-benefits. These factors will drive the market size for cytotoxic drugs and HPAPI contract manufacturing during the forecast period.

Current Cytotoxic Drugs and HPAPI Manufacturing Market Landscape

Answer: Presently, close to 145 companies have the required capabilities to offer HPAPI and cytotoxic drug manufacturing services across different scales of operation. In addition, several contract service providers are entering into strategic alliances in order to consolidate their presence in this field and enhance their existing capabilities to meet the growing demand for high potency molecules. It is worth mentioning that close to 50% of the expansion activities carried out in this market have been focused on improving the existing manufacturing facilities for highly potent molecules, through the addition of new structures and equipment.

Key Challenges Faced by Cytotoxic Drugs and HPAPI Manufacturers

The primary challenge faced during the manufacturing of highly potent APIs and cytotoxic drugs is related to limiting / altogether preventing cross-contamination of the highly potent molecule with other molecules being produced at the same site. Further, the lack of information related to safe exposure levels and toxicity of new chemical entities can risk the lives of workers and harm the environment. As a result, comprehensive management systems are required for safe handling and containment of highly potent molecules. In addition, proper cleaning techniques and waste treatment systems are extremely essential while producing such compounds.

Key Value Drivers in the Cytotoxic Drugs and HPAPI Contract Manufacturing Market

The increasing demand for high potency drug has led to a rise in the number of high potency APIs in the overall pharmaceutical development pipeline. In order to cater to the growing demand for the production of such drug candidates, there is a requirement for safe manufacturing and containment technologies. Even though some pharmaceutical companies have made considerable investments to establish in-house capabilities, the capital-intensive nature and specialized containment requirements make the role of contract manufacturers crucial, specifically for small and mid-sized players.

Cytotoxic Drugs and HPAPI Manufacturing Market Size 

The cytotoxic drugs and HPAPI manufacturing market is projected to grow at a CAGR of approximately 12% during the forecast period. Currently, in terms of type of molecule, the market is likely to be driven by highly potent small molecules. However, this trend is expected to change in the foreseen future, as the demand for highly potent biologics, such as cell and gene therapies, increases further. In addition, in terms of scale of operation, majority share of the contract service revenues is expected to be generated by commercial scale manufacturing operations.
