  • The market comprises organizations that offer services such as the development of cell lines, upstream and downstream processes, analytical methods, and formulations. These organizations specialize in developing and manufacturing stable cell lines that are extensively used in a number of important applications, including drug screening, gene functional studies, and biologic production.

The market is segmented on the basis of biological source, product service (upstream and downstream), and indication. Factors such as the increasing adoption of advanced technologies for biologic development, a favorable environment for clinical trials in developing countries; and an increase in outsourcing of R&D activities are paving the way for the growth of the market. During the COVID-19 pandemic, a significant number of CROs partnered with biotechnology companies for R&D in COVID-19 vaccines. In 2022, there will be a significant number of companies undergoing research for a potential COVID-19 vaccine owing to the rising cases. This is expected to have a positive impact on the market.

Growing M&A and collaboration activities between biopharma companies and CDOs are yet another factor assisting in market growth, allowing more financial stability and the amalgamation of advanced and specialized technologies. For instance, In September 2021, Curia Global, Inc., formerly AMRI, leading contract research, development, and manufacturing firm, acquired LakePharma Inc., a California-based biologics drug discovery, development, and manufacturing company. Many biopharma and pharma companies are increasingly looking to outsource their activities as it helps accelerate the workflow (speed) of the company, provides unique specialized services, decreases drug manufacturing costs, and provides expertise. These factors are expected to boost the biologics contract development organization market growth in the coming years.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the majority of clinical trials were focused on developing new therapies for treating COVID-19. However, in the post-pandemic period, research is expected to focus on cancer owing to its rising incidence. Biologics such as monoclonal antibodies have gained significant popularity in treating cancer. According to the IQVIA report Oncology Trends 2022, the number of cancer clinical trials increased significantly in 2021. The high potential of biologics in treating cancer and the growing number of cancer studies are likely to support the growth of the market in the coming years.

Source Insights

The mammalian source segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 54.96% in 2021 in the market for biologics contract development. The segment is expected to witness a significant CAGR during the forecast period. This is due to the fact that using mammalian cells for protein expression has the major benefit of producing mammalian proteins with correct post-translational modifications that provide a native structure. Mammalian cells like Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cell lines have been among the most preferred and about 70.0% of the protein therapeutics is developed from CHO cells.

The microbial source segment has gained a significant share in 2021. Microbial systems are widely used for producing recombinant protein therapeutics. Around 650 protein drugs have been approved worldwide to date, among which, about 400 were obtained from microbial recombinant technologies. Moreover, approximately 48.0% of biologics approved for manufacturing are produced by microbial sources, which are primarily used by CDMOs to produce cytokines, hormones, enzymes, and MABs. These factors are supporting the segment growth.

Product Services Insights

The process development services accounted for the largest revenue share of 73.5% in 2021 in the biologics contract development market. Biologics process development is characterized by two techniques-upstream process development and downstream process development. Upstream process development mainly includes the selection of the right cell line, culture medium, bioreactor systems, and operating parameters. Upstream process development services are provided by the majority of the biologics manufacturing organizations and are highly specific to the client's business needs, regulatory constraints, and project timeline. Companies, such as AGC Biologics, Curia Global, Inc., and Bionova Scientific, offer upstream process development for mammalian and microbial large-scale manufacturing services.

The cell line development service is expected to hold a significant share in the market in 2021. According to NCBI, cell lines are being rigorously used in, testing vaccine production, drug metabolism & cytotoxicity, generation of artificial tissues (e.g., artificial skin), study of gene function, antibody production, and synthesis of biological compounds. The usage of cell lines has revolutionized scientific research. The development of efficient cell lines is requisite, as they can be used to investigate anticipated clinical results. The production of efficient cell line influences productivity and product quality. Varied characteristics of cell lines also enhance process development to achieve target productivity and quality.

Indication Insights

Oncology accounted for the largest revenue share of 48.93% in 2021 in the market for biologics contract development. As cancers are formed through malfunctioning of the immune system, biologic therapy is stated to repair, stimulate, or enhance the immune response, and hence many pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies are willing to invest in cancer-related novel treatments. Cancer can proliferate in any organ of the body, and thus there is an extensive need for treatment, which in turn is boosting investments in R&D and outsourcing by various companies.

The immunological disorder disease segment is anticipated rise with the fastest growth of 11.2% CAGR during the forecast period. Immunological diseases or conditions caused by dysfunction of the immune system include diseases such as asthma, allergy, autoimmune diseases, and others. According to NCBI, autoimmune inflammatory diseases affect approximately 7.6% to 9.4% of the world’s population, especially young and middle-aged women. Biologics medicines have gained significant importance in treating diseases such as arthritis, rheumatologic diseases, and others. The high efficiency and safety of these medications are likely to improve the demand for biologics for treating immunological disorders which is expected to have a positive impact on the market.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market for biologics contract development in 2021 and accounted for a revenue share of 37.3% in 2021. The region is expected to showcase a significant CAGR over the forecast period. This is attributed to increasing R&D investments and the local presence of global players and their efforts to obtain new patents. The growth of the contract development organizations (CDO) can be primarily attributed to the increasing outsourcing activities and rise in the number of clinical trials in the region. For instance, as per ClinicalTrial.Gov as of July 2022, over 32% of the global studies were conducted in the U.S. alone. A high number of researches conducted in the U.S. is further supporting the regional market growth.

In Asia Pacific, the market for biologics contract development is expected to witness the highest CAGR of 13.82% over the forecast period. Various regulatory organization amendments to change clinical trial evaluation standards in accordance with global requirements are generating the interest of the biotechnology companies to invest in the Asia Pacific region. Asia Pacific countries have a large patient pool and the potential for advanced medical expertise. In comparison to western countries, the cost of conducting a clinical trial is very low here. These aforementioned factors are expected to contribute to the region's market growth.
