Pharmaceutical Continuous Manufacturing Market Outlook - 2026
The global pharmaceutical continuous manufacturing market was valued at $393 million in 2018, and is projected to reach $855 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 10.2% from 2019 to 2026.
Continuous manufacturing is an advanced manufacturing approach with the potential to improve quality and consistency of medications with lower cost. This production line is operated in a continuous flow, with end-to-end integration of manufacturing processes. The pharmaceutical continuous manufacturing market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period, due to technological advancements in continuous manufacturing systems and support by the regulatory authorities for adoption of continuous manufacturing systems. However, higher cost of pharmaceutical continuous manufacturing systems impedes the pharmaceutical continuous manufacturing market growth. On the contrary, pharmaceutical manufacturing systems reduce fluctuation in the production, improve yields, lower cost of operation & equipment, which are anticipated to offer remunerative opportunities for market expansion. Recently, in 2019, Caperion launched a next-generation of high accuracy vibratory feeding technology with higher accuracy and quicker product changeover.
