Pharma Equipment Budget Expansion Fueling Quest


For Operational Excellence Responding to market opportunities globally, drug-owners and contract service providers alike are increasing their spending on manufacturing operations and equipment.

Whether seeking market leverage or financial advantage, drug owners across Pharma’s primary sectors are increasingly seeing contract service providers as strategic partners, allies with the development tools, technologies and operational expertise to help them remain cost competitive and speed their products to market. These and other dynamics are spurring increased capital equipment spending by contract manufacturers pursuing new business across the space. It’s also spurring new investment in operations that support major strategic initiatives like a move to large-molecule processing or the launch of a “branded” prefilled sterile injectable into the generics space. Similarly, industry and regulatory forces are driving general demand for faster, safer, versatile and perhaps most importantly connected manufacturing capacity – whether to manufacture compliantly, meet new therapeutic discovery regimes in the biologics space or just make ton after ton of a single high-demand compound extremely efficiently and reliably.


Increased capital spending on equipment by drug owners and contractors is being prompted by a number of factors:


• Aging, inefficient and non-compliant Pharma 1.0 manufacturing capacity being phased out; compliant, contract capacity phased in;


• Extreme pressure to increase equipment effectiveness, control costs while increasing productivity and pipeline throughput;


• Evolving, expanding biopharmaceutical drug-discovery pipelines requiring equipment innovation and specialized capacity;
