This report provides a comprehensive analysis of the supply and demand for mammalian cell culture, including geographic distribution of manufacturing capacity, the impact of facility utilization rates on overall capacity requirements, and the influence of disposables and single-use technologies on manufacturing facility design and costs. It covers current mammalian cell culture capacity utilization in the biopharmaceutical industry, forecasts supply of and demand for this capacity through 2016, and reveals important details about the biomanufacturing marketplace.

Levine, Ph.D. “Our comprehensive analysis gives senior executives and program managers essential market insight into the critical considerations affecting biomanufacturing.  Since the publication of BPTC’s original report in 2008, a number of trends have continued to develop and gain traction in the marketplace, including technological advances in manufacturing processes, increased acceptance of single-use or disposable technologies, continued emergence of biosimilars and follow-on biologic products, and continued consolidation in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries.”
