Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Packing Sourcer

Look Inside

Any pharmaceutical or biotechnology organisation needing to shorten R&D and manufacturing timelines while also cutting costs should consider insourcing. Although traditional outsourcing models still dominate external development and manufacturing activities, the insourcing model – which first attracted attention around 2010 – is fast gaining popularity. This is due to its unparalleled ability to provide substantial cost savings and foster an environment that promotes communication, idea sharing and problem solving. Ultimately, this creates a real time intellectual think tank with increased project productivity.

Strategic Alternatives


In a survey published in March 2015, 80% of respondents reported an expectation for growing demand of outsourcing in the coming years, up from 50% just a few years ago. Some of the factors driving the adoption of outsourcing drug development manufacturing are: reduced time to market, an increase in virtual biotech models and big pharma’s shift away from in-house R&D activities. Rising operational costs associated with drug development and manufacturing have also driven this increase. However, controls placed on healthcare costs have forced companies to look at different ways to bring products to market and streamline internal operations. As a result, creative alternatives to in-house approaches are being considered more as part of pharma and biotech organisations’ core strategies now.

From the R&D side, the pressure to increase success rates is driving companies to look at combinations of what have traditionally been internal efforts combined with external resources. In addition, the outsourcing of biopharmaceutical manufacturing has been growing to the point where it has become a common strategic decision for developers. This goes well beyond what had been used in the past, for non-core activities to now include high-value and complex technical services.
