Global Continuous Manufacturing Market: Snapshot

The global continuous manufacturing market is anticipated to gain impetus due to the development of the pharmaceutical industry. Other important factors that could enhance the growth of the market could be quicker availability of reliable products, less production cost, and less time investment. However, lack of regulatory and technical clarity is predicted to put brakes on market growth. Besides this, cleaning validation concerns and global regulatory uncertainty could hamper the demand for continuous manufacturing in the coming years.

Nevertheless, the world continuous manufacturing market could bolster its growth on the back of powerful opportunities birthed on account of projected growth in generic manufacturing and industry-academia collaborations. Products manufactured with the help of continuous processes have been receiving FDA approvals at a rising rate. This could also act as a favorable prospect for market players.

There could be various products available in the world continuous manufacturing market: controls, semi-continuous systems, and integrated systems. Amongst these, integrated systems are envisaged to secure a strong position in the market. Their purpose is to integrate different pharma processes in a single system, which helps save a whole lot of time and cost. They could convert raw materials into final products by allowing end-to-end manufacturing.

With a view to improve their footprint in the international continuous manufacturing market, players are expected to be involved in different business strategies including acquisitions, partnerships, joint ventures, agreements, high expenditure on research and development, market initiatives, clinical trials, and new product launches. Players could find promising prospects arising from the higher share expected to be grabbed by full-scale manufacturing firms in the near future. CMOs and pharmaceutical manufacturing firms could increasingly adopt continuous manufacturing to find solutions for challenges pertaining to operational costs, drug supply, and product quality. The market could also witness a high adoption of continuous technology by these firms.

Global Continuous Manufacturing Market: Overview

Continuous manufacturing is a continuous flow process of materials, which are either fluids or dry bulk and are required to be processed in incessant motion for chemical reaction. Besides this, continuous manufacturing or process also includes subjecting the materials to mechanical or heat treatment. In this regard, continuous refers to 24 hours per day for seven days every weak, with maintenance shutdowns semi-annually or annually.

Several of the leading pharmaceutical manufacturers are keen on adopting continuous manufacturing as the technology enables producing active ingredients in compact, closed units, with sophisticated automation and minimal human interference. Production stages that are conducted sequentially in conventional processes are thus integrated in continuous manufacturing as well. The technology has enabled pharmaceutical manufacturers to boost system utilization and achieve 10% to 20% reduction in cost incurred on production within a very short time.

Global Continuous Manufacturing Market: Key Trends

The global continuous manufacturing market is forecast to report strong growth as more number of pharmaceutical companies invest in improving existing technologies. Continuous manufacturing enabled pharmaceutical companies gain from the likes of cost-effectiveness and improved efficiency. Considering the benefits it offers, continuous manufacturing has gained support from regulatory authorities, who are encouraging the implementation of the technology. 

In the last few years, continuous manufacturing has become one of the most trusted technologies deployed in R&D activities, besides its rising adoption in full-scale manufacturing companies. Considering the high rate of adoption among pharmaceutical and contract manufacturing organizations (CMO), the demand for continuous manufacturing is forecast to rise at a high pace in the coming years. In CMOs, the need to address challenges related to drug supply, operational costs, and product quality will boost the adoption of continuous manufacturing.

Based on application, end product manufacturing and active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) manufacturing have emerged as the key market segments. Of these, end product manufacturing emerged dominant as the technology is easily available as compared to API manufacturing.

Global Continuous Manufacturing Market: Market Potential

While the pharmaceutical industry has been hesitant in embracing continuous manufacturing, it is no denying the technology will make headways as the companies realize the benefits it offers. On May 8, 2017, Bosch Packaging Technology announced introducing the Xelum platform to support the continuous manufacturing of oral solid-dosage (OSD) forms. The platform encompasses dosing, granulating, mixing, and tableting in a continuous process. The Xelum platform will use the granulation technology developed by Hüttlin – a Bosch subsidiary. Using the technology, it will produce a unimodal particle size distribution, tableting properties, and good flow of granules, besides the high product yields.

Global Continuous Manufacturing Market: Regional Outlook

North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Rest of the World constitute the key segments in the global continuous manufacturing market. Among these nations North America is likely to be an early adopter of continuous manufacturing. It is also expected to hold dominance in the global market. Support from regulatory bodies, openness of leading pharmaceutical companies toward the latest technologies, and the mounting pressure on pharmaceutical companies to reduce operational costs will fuel the demand for continuous manufacturing in North America.
