The “Pharmaceutical Continuous Manufacturing Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027” report has been added to’s offering.

The global pharmaceutical continuous manufacturing market reached a value of US$ 1.05 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, the publisher expects the market to reach a value of US$ 2.24 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 13.46% during 2021-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use sectors. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Pharmaceutical continuous manufacturing refers to an end-to-end medication production approach that enhances the quality and consistency of various novel drugs and vaccines with minimal capital investments. As compared to batch processing, it operates in a continuous flow, is easier to scale, offers greater control to manufacturers and a higher level of automation, and eliminates physical intervention.

Apart from this, pharmaceutical continuous manufacturing aids in minimizing the medicine formulation duration, risk of human errors, monitoring the production procedures, and improving the product quality to harmonize with the regulatory guidelines. Consequently, the technique is extensively utilized by pharmaceutical companies and contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs) to develop active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and medicines. At present, it is available in integrated, semi-continuous, and control types.

Pharmaceutical Continuous Manufacturing Market Trends:

One of the primary factors currently driving the global pharmaceutical continuous manufacturing market is the increasing demand for effective medicine production systems for composing various effective biologics at a lower cost. This can be further attributed to the rising drug shortages and the growing prevalence of several chronic ailments across the globe.

Additionally, the rising health concerns, especially during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic outbreak, have prompted pharmaceutical companies to use continuous manufacturing techniques to compose novel vaccines, which is acting as another growth-inducing factor.

In line with this, significant technological advancements, such as rapid automation in the pharmaceutical manufacturing methodology and the large-scale integration of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions, are contributing to the market growth. Other factors, such as significant improvements in the pharmaceutical sector, ongoing research and development (R&D) activities, and the escalating awareness about the availability of food and drug administration (FDA) approved medicines, are creating a positive outlook for the market.

Global Pharmaceutical Market Drives Innovative Digitalization to Accelerate Drug Discovery


Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis, Global Pharmaceuticals Outlook, finds that the accelerated drug development timelines are driving digitalization and innovation across the pharmaceutical value chain. Data, the decentralization of clinical trials, supply-chain resilience, digital therapeutics, and manufacturing automation are the key areas driving digitalization. The industry also ensures that healthcare will remain precise, preventive, and outcome-based in promoting social and financial inclusion. The global pharmaceuticals market, including small molecules and biologics, is expected to register 3.8% growth, garnering $1.48 trillion by the end of 2022 from $1.43 trillion in 2021 under the aspirational scenario.

“The partnerships and horizontal integration of technology companies with life science companies have laid the foundation for rapid and cost-effective drug discovery and development,” said Surbhi Gupta, Healthcare & Life Sciences Senior Industry Analyst. “Further, all major genomics technology companies are channeling their resources to digitalize genomic data for better selection of patients for clinical trials and to reduce the turnaround time for clinical studies.”

Gupta added: “Owing to the growing use of machine learning and artificial intelligence in personalized medicine, the pharmaceuticals industry will move from a symptom-driven treatment approach to a genetics-based approach. Additionally, precision medicine can offer in-depth information about cellular and molecular alterations, accelerating the development of targeted therapies.”

Digitalization and innovation in the pharmaceuticals industry will unlock new growth opportunities, including:

  • Digital therapeutics companies must excel in areas where many pharmaceutical companies are lacking, including data analytics, interoperability, user-centric design, and flexible business models.
  • Innovative formulation and delivery technologies that improve RNA stability at ambient temperatures will facilitate the rapid global adoption of RNA-based treatments at reduced costs.
  • Contract development and manufacturing companies should partner with global companies to meet the required experience in clinical drug manufacturing and expand market reach in Asia-Pacific.

Global Pharmaceuticals Outlook, 2022 is the latest addition to Frost & Sullivan’s Healthcare & Life Sciences research and analyses available through the Frost & Sullivan Leadership Council, which helps organizations identify a continuous flow of growth opportunities to succeed in an unpredictable future.
