Outsourcing Solid Dose Manufacturing Trends In 2014
In 2014, the contract manufacturing market for solid dosage forms is anticipated to be $19.6B, representing 58% of the total CMO market value of $33.7B. While the market value percentage for solid dose has been drifting downward — likely related to the shift towards biologics, which are more expensive to develop and manufacture — the propensity to outsource oral solid dosage forms continues to grow modestly.

Modular Facility Design: A Cost-Effective Option In The Post-Blockbuster Drug Era
The pharmaceutical industry has undergone a sea of change in recent years as manufacturers have adapted to the end of the era of large-volume production of mass-market blockbuster drugs. With firms now focusing in on subpopulations of patients, there is a need for lean, adaptable facilities that can switch quickly between multiple products in multiple formats. Modular facilities can meet this need. While not a panacea, for the right project characteristics, ‘Modularity in Design’ can deliver significant and quantifiable long-term value.
Fundamentals Of Spray-Dried Dispersion Technology
A common problem statement in the pharmaceutical industry is low oral bioavailability of drug candidates with poor aqueous solubility. The literature suggests that a significant majority of new drug candidates are in the Biopharmaceutics Classification System (BCS) class II and IV space, which includes compounds that are dissolution rate, solubility or permeability limited to absorption, or all three. As portfolios across the industry are increasingly focused on these compounds, the need for enabling technologies continues to grow.
