Fill Finish Manufacturing Market 2
Fill Finish Manufacturing Market 2

The fill-finish manufacturing market is expected to register a CAGR of over 9% over the period of 2021-2027. Fill-finish is the final manufacturing step (and perhaps most importantly) of the entire pharmaceutical manufacturing process. The manufacture of fill-finish includes aseptic filling of biopharmaceuticals or any form of medicinal product such as sterilized liquids, powders, and suspensions in vials, ampoules, bottles, syringes, and cartridges. The growing demand for fill-finish manufacturing can be attributed to the rising demand for biopharmaceutical products, growing adoption of prefilled syringes for administration of parental drugs, and rising adoption of inorganic growth strategies among key industry players is anticipated to boost the market growth. For example, in June 2020, Optima Group and Catalent signed a partnership agreement to accelerate manufacturing capacity and prepare for large-scale commercial manufacturing of a lead vaccine candidate for COVID-19. Optima Group supported Catalent with a new high-speed vial filling line for the COVID-19 vaccine program. Furthermore, the fill-finish manufacturing market is anticipated to grow on account of the growing awareness of prefilled syringes, many ongoing research activities in this field, and rising government and public-private investments. However, some of the restraints in the market including stringent regulatory framework and the high costs associated with RABS (restricted access barrier system) are impeding the growth of this market all over the world.

Factors such as the emergence of the biosimilar market due to the patent expiry of key biologic products, rising incidence of chronic disorders, and the increasing focus of major players on increasing their presence in several targeted marketing efforts, like partnerships, production expansions, innovations, acquisitions, and investments in order to amplify their geographical and competitive footprint in this region are driving the growth of the fill-finish manufacturing industry. For example, in January 2021, Piramal Pharma Solutions (PPS) announced its collaboration with Canadian biopharma firm, Theratechnologies to provide GMP (good manufacturing practice) production of sterile fill/finish drug products for supporting its first-in-human clinical developmental offerings.

Becton, Dickinson and Company, Optima, West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc, IMA S.P.A, Groninger & Co GmbH, Schott AG, Nipro Medical Corporation, Gerresheimer AG, Piramal Pharma Solutions, Syntegon Technology GmbH (Robert Bosch GmbH) are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst Products, the consumables category accounted for the majority share in the market in 2020”

Based on product, the fill-finish manufacturing equipment market is segmented into consumables and instruments. The consumables segment accounted for a significant market share in 2020 and it is estimated that it will grow rapidly during the projected timeframe. This can be mainly ascribed to the replacement rate of these consumables as it is higher than that of equipment, the shelf life of consumables is short, and a large amount is required. Increased acceptance of prefilled syringes, widespread use of vials in lyophilization, and increased outsourcing of filling operations are key drivers of the consumables segment. Medical consumables are the necessary consumables used in the medical system primarily to provide care in hospital and surgical environments. Moreover, The COVID-19 crisis has also significantly increased the need for consumables.

“Among End-Users, the contract manufacturing organization is expected to witness considerable CAGR during the forecast period”

Based on end-users, the market is fragmented into pharmaceuticals & biopharmaceutical companies, contract manufacturing organizations, and others. In 2020, the contract manufacturing organization segment grabbed a considerable market share, and it is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. Outsourcing cases from small bio pharmacy companies are increasing. An increase in the number of new industrial players in the field of biopharmaceutical manufacturing is likely to aid the growth of the segment of the market.
