Current trends in the biopharmaceutical industry, continued market growth, new product groups, cost pressures and the trend towards localized manufacturing exert unprecedented pressure on biomanufacturers to innovate biomanufacturing platforms. To accelerate the industry’s journey, a technology roadmapping process was been established to determine common biomanufacturer needs and to share them openly with supply partners, academics, regulators and government agencies so that directions can be aligned and collaboration enabled.
The First edition biomanufacturing technology roadmap, published in 2017 is an initial step, setting a broad vision for the future of biomanufacturing and designed to catalyze industry action.
This overview document sets the context for the roadmap providing an introduction and detailing the current and predicted landscape for the industry that creates the imperative to innovate, covering:
- Market trends
- Business drivers and metrics
- Biomanufacturing scenarios considered
- Regulatory strategy and
- Conclusions and recommendations
