In HighTech Business Decisions’ recently published industry study “Biopharmaceutical Contract Manufacturing 2020: New Demand and Expanded Services,” CMOs expect the industry to grow at double-digit rates over the next three years. The demand for production services supporting cell and gene therapies will grow at a faster pace than the overall industry growth rate.

William Downey, president of HighTech Business Decisions, explains, “We extensively interviewed 54 executives at both pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and CMOs worldwide. In a reverse from the past, industry capacity has increased faster than demand. This resulted in slightly lower overall industry capacity utilization rates. Over the next few years, CMOs will continue to invest in capacity and technologies to meet future demand.”
