PCI Synthesis, Inc., a pharmaceutical manufacturer of new chemical entities (NCEs), generic active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), and other specialty chemical products, issued its annual list of trends that will affect the emerging biotech and generic drug sectors, as well as Contract Development and Manufacturing Organizations (CDMOs), Contract Research Organizations (CROs) and Contract Manufacturing Organizations (CMOs) in 2018.
“We’re expecting a wave of innovation to drive the sector,” said Ed Price, president of PCI Synthesis.
“When we looked at it, the one thing most of our trends this year have in common, it’s innovation, whether it’s the demand for medical-grade polymers that allow for new delivery systems to make medicine more effective or pharma foods that need GMP manufacturing while offering patients new ways to treat chronic diseases. Next year should be a good one in terms of driving change in how we develop new drugs and therapies.”
Here are some of the trends that PCI Synthesis expects will impact the industry next year:
