A detailed analysis of the industry structure of contract manufacturing, contract research and contract packaging has been conducted. Revenues are broken down by type of industry. Sales figures are estimated for the five-year period from 2013 through 2018.
Applications and various formulations for which contract manufacturing, research and packaging are widely used are also discussed separately in the report. The report also takes into account various new developments and regulatory aspects in this industry. The report also covers significant patents in each category.
REASONS FOR DOING THIS STUDY
Comprehensive research in the fields of contract manufacturing, contract research and contract packaging has revealed their benefits in various industries. Contract manufacturing, research and packaging are advantageous to both parties to the contract as it provides the manufacturing company with financial stability for the duration of the contract and the hiring company the benefit of cost savings, time saved in operating and managing a production facility and research. Many industries have now begun to explore the advantages of contracting their research, production and packaging, leading to a steady market for these services.
Cost control, R&D spend, new technologies, increasing competition and patent expiries resulting in markets for generics are moving this industry in a new direction. New advancements, product launches and changing technologies will drive the growth of the market in the foreseeable future. This study looks at most of the systems affected by these factors.
Acquisition strategies and collaborations by companies are also covered in this report. This study also discusses the strength and weaknesses of each type of technology in light of the new technologies, growing competition and changing market needs.
