The global biopharmaceutical CMO and CRO market was valued at US$ 31.17 billion in 2021 and is expected to hit US$ 59.13 billion by 2030, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.4% from 2021 to 2030.
Biopharmaceutical CMO and CRO are the abbreviations for biopharmaceutical contract manufacturing organizations and contract research organizations respectively. The market is primarily driven by the rapid growth of the biopharmaceutical industry across the globe. Biopharmaceutical industry represents around 20% of the global pharmaceutical industry. Moreover, growing demand for the biopharmaceutical products amongst the population is indirectly fueling the growth of the biopharmaceutical CMO and CRO market exponentially. CMO helps the biopharmaceutical industry by developing and manufacturing the pharmaceutical products. On the other hand, a CRO helps in the research & development activities outsourced by the biopharmaceutical industry players. Hence, the growth of the biopharmaceutical CMO and CRO market is solely dependent on the biopharmaceutical industry. Further, rising burden of diseases, growing geriatric population, increasing demand for gene therapies, and technological advancements in the field of biotechnology is significantly fueling the growth of the market across the globe.
The shifting preferences of drug developer towards biologics are pumping huge investments in the biopharmaceutical CMO and CRO industry. Moreover, the contract manufacturers are becoming popular as most of the small and medium biopharmaceutical manufacturers are opting for the CMO services in order to save costs relating to pharmaceutical manufacturing. Therefore, the growing dependence of the drug developers on contract manufacturing organizations is significantly driving the global biopharmaceutical CMO and CRO market.

By service, the contract manufacturing segment led the market with revenue share of 58% in 2020. This is attributed to the availability of numerous contract manufacturing organizations that significantly contributes in the development and production of biopharmaceuticals on large scale. Hence, this segment is estimated to remain dominant throughout the forecast period.
On the other hand, the contract research segment is expected to gain traction owing to the increasing investment by the small and big biopharma players to indulge in the research & development activities.
By source, the mammalian segment led the market with revenue share of 54% in 2020. This is attributed to the growing importance of the mammalian cell culture for research and development of various antibodies, vaccines, and proteins in the biopharma industry. Mammalian cell line has been extensively used for the development of viral vaccine and diagnostics in the recent years that generated huge revenue for this segment.
On the other hand, the non-mammalian segment is expected to gain considerable traction owing to its increasing use in the manufacturing of bio-therapeutics such as enzymes, hormones, cytokines, and antibodies.
Product Type Insights
By product type, the biologics segment led the market with revenue share 81.5% in 2020. The use of biologics is considered to be much more effective and safer. The growing interests of the pharma developers in the biologics field and rising investment towards this field has sophistically contributed in the growth of this segment.
On the other hand, the biosimilars is expected to grow at a promising rate as it provides low cost solutions and may be used as an alternative to the biologics. However, the lack of reliability and safety issues associated with this segment may restrict the growth of this segment.
Based on the region, the North America accounted 34% market share in 2020, in terms of revenue and is estimated to sustain its dominance during the forecast period. This is attributable to the presence of major key players in the region. Moreover, US dominate the biopharmaceutical industry due to the presence of numerous contract manufacturers and contract research organizations in the region. The various small and medium sized pharma developers are increasingly contracting the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals to the CMOs due to lack of investments. Furthermore, the growing burden of diseases in North America have resulted in the higher consumption of biopharmaceutical products, thereby fueling the growth of the biopharmaceutical CMO and CRO market in the region.
On the other hand, Asia Pacific is estimated to be the most opportunistic market during the forecast period owing to the increasing investments of the government for developing healthcare infrastructure. The presence of large population in the region coupled with growing prevalence of various diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and other chronic diseases is anticipated to offer lucrative growth opportunities to the market players in the region.
