The microbial contract biomanufacturing market
The microbial contract biomanufacturing market
The growing pipeline of biologics that can be produced in microbial systems, such as antibody fragments and plasmid-based therapies, is anticipated.

Roots Analysis has announced the addition of the “Microbial ContractBiomanufacturing Market, 2020-2030” report to its listof offerings.


Despite mammaliancell cultures being the preferred manufacturing approach for biologics, recent advancesin microbial fermentation have enabled the development of versatilebiomanufacturing systems, which are both robust and cost friendly. Presently, anumber of service provider companies claim to offer end-to-end solutions,ranging from product development to commercial production, for microbial biologics.Given the obvious advantages of outsourcing, drug developers are likely tocontinue relying on contract service providers for various aspects of theirrespective microbial biologic development programs.

Key Market Insights


Over115 CMOs claim to offer manufacturing services for microbial biologics

The microbial contractbiomanufacturing market is highly fragmented, featuring a mix of small,mid-sized, large and very large players. It is worth mentioning that more than50% of CMOs mentioned in the report, have the necessary capabilities tomanufacture biologics across all scales of operation (preclinical, clinicaland commercial).


Presently, more than 70% of service providers use bacterialexpression systems

Recently, a number ofmicrobial biologics manufacturers are shifting to yeast-based production systems.It is also worth highlighting that close to 30% of CMOs, identified in thisresearch, claim to have the required capabilities to manufacture biologics usingboth bacterial and yeast-based systems.


Europe is currently regarded as a key manufacturing hub formicrobial biologics

There are more than150 manufacturing facilities, with microbial fermentation capabilities, worldwide;of these, 43% are in Europe, followed by North America (31%). On the otherhand, prominent regions in the Asia Pacific and Middle East, where microbial biologicsare manufactured, include (in decreasing order of number of resident manufacturingfacilities) China, India, Japan, Australia and Israel.


Severalpartnerships were established in this domain, during the period 2016-2020

Majorityof the deals recorded in the report, were established in 2019. Further, a largenumber (~25%) of the partnerships were observed to be focused on the productionof microbial biologics; this is followed by process development andmanufacturing agreements (20%).


Further,multiple expansion initiatives were undertaken by CMOs, since 2016

More than 30% of expansionprojects over the last few years were focused on the establishment of newfacilities, followed by those involving the expansion of existing manufacturingfacilities (28%). Further, 50% of the expansion initiatives mentioned in thereport, were in undertaken by stakeholder companies in Europe, followed NorthAmerica (39%).


Big pharma playershave also been active in this upcoming field

Around 60% of the initiativesundertaken by big pharma were reported in the period 2016-2020. Of these, 57% involvedthe establishment of strategic partnerships with other industry stakeholders. It is worth highlighting that, in terms of type ofbiologic, close to 49% of these initiatives were focused on recombinantproteins.


NorthAmerica and Europe are anticipated to capture over 80% share (in terms ofservice revenues) of the market, by 2030

At present, more than60% of the total revenues are generated from commercialized microbialbiologics, and this trend is unlikely to change significantly in short tomid-term. Further, it is worth mentioning that the contract biomanufacturing marketfor microbial biologics in the Middle East and North Africa is anticipated togrow at a relatively faster rate (10.3%), followed by Asia Pacific (9%).
