The vaccine contract manufacturing market is poised to become a multi-billion-dollar market in 2030, growing at an annualized rate of 17.4%, claims Roots Analysis

The steadily growing demand for vaccines, fueled by the COVID-19 pandemic, coupled to the discovery and development of a variety of preventive and therapeutic vaccine products, has presented lucrative opportunities for contract manufacturers

London, Sept. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Roots Analysis has announced the addition of “Vaccine Contract Manufacturing Market (3rd Edition), 2021-2030” report to its list of offerings.

Given that vaccine manufacturing requires highly regulated, state-of-the-art technologies, it has become challenging for stakeholders to establish in-house expertise for large-scale manufacturing of vaccines. For this purpose, numerous vaccine developers have begun outsourcing their manufacturing operations to contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs); these service providers are consolidating their capabilities and are expanding their respective service portfolios through substantial acquisition activity.
