Executive Summary

Biologics is the fastest-growing sector of the pharmaceutical industry. This shift towards commercialization of more biological drugs is mostly due to their high specificity, enhanced efficacy, affinity, solubility, and low toxicity. Biological therapeutic drugs or biologics are inherently variable and difficult to control and measure to assure product safety, identity, quality, purity, and strength. Due to their unique nature, biological products present significant challenges for quality control. Biologics safety testing is a major step in the drug discovery, development, and manufacturing process to ensure sterility, purity, stability, and overall quality of biological agents and processes to produce noncontaminated products. Safety testing reduces risks, shortens the time to market, and tests the quality, safety, and performance of products against relevant health, safety, and regulatory standards. Health authorities, including the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the European Medicines Agency (EMA), and the International Council for Harmonisation (ICH) require biological products (or biologics) to undergo stringent safety testing throughout development and manufacturing to ensure the final product is effective, safe, and free of contaminants.

The growth in biologics sales and pipeline drives the overall need for biologics clinical development and manufacturing services across the whole spectrum from pre-clinical services to commercial manufacturing. Moreover, the biopharmaceutical industry is experiencing a global shift towards new molecular formats and more complex molecules, including bi- and multispecific antibodies, fusion proteins, and various types of bioconjugates. As these therapies gain complexity in their applications and properties, unique challenges related to their bioavailability and handling arise. Simultaneously, the product landscape is changing rapidly and is becoming more challenging from a regulatory perspective with increased pressure for speed to market, alongside accelerated development pathways and timelines. As the biopharmaceutical industry’s drug research and development needs continue to increase, this in turn drives enhanced opportunities for the biologics safety testing market. The continued expansion of the pharmaceutical R&D outsourcing market and stringent regulatory requirements will continue supporting growth in the biologics testing market in the coming years.

The predicted increases in the use of biologics worldwide, as well as the increasing number of new biologics entering the market, are the two main drivers of growth in the biological safety testing market. Moreover, increasing government support for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries will further boost the demand for biologics safety testing. Increasingly, the trend among large biopharmaceutical companies is to outsource the majority of their biologics safety testing needs to smaller, independent laboratories for final analysis and verification. with increased global demand for biologics and with multiple developers targeting the same molecules, there is a clear race to be the first to submission for any biologic molecule. This is driving the need for advanced biologics testing to accelerate and shorten their development and release to market timelines.
