Biologics Manufacturing Companies to Remain the Most Sought-after Targets for Acquisitions

Published on : Jan 21, 2019

Albany, New York, January 21, 2019: There has been a significant rise in the number of mergers & acquisition activities in the contract manufacturing industry in recent years, with assets of drug manufacturing capabilities being the prime focus. Greater tendency of big pharma companies to build in-house production facilities apropos of biologics has resulted in outsourcing of packaging stages and secondary manufacturing activities. Recognizing the upward trend of drug formulation outsourcing and growth prospective of secondary manufacturing space, contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs) are enhancing their capacities and capabilities to win new business to venture in the pharma space.

Biologics manufacturing companies, owing to their complex technologies, are projected to remain the most sought-after targets for acquisitions. Additionally, the prime focus of the acquirers remain on the CMOs, which are highly involved in analytical services, dose, and APIs-small molecule. Out of 130 acquisitions that happened during the period from 2015 to 2017, about 70% of service company acquirers were operating companies rather than investment firms.

These valuable insights have been extracted from a report titled, “PharmSource - M&A in the Contract Manufacturing Industry: Implications and Outlook - 2018 Edition” that is recently incorporated in the repository of Market Research Hub (MRH). The private equity firms or the CMOs owned by them acquired about 36% of the companies, while the other companies were acquired by the public companies.
