The “Cell Therapy Manufacturing Market, 2017-2027” report provides an extensive study of the rapidly growing market of cell therapy manufacturing and focuses both on contract manufacturers and cell therapy developers with in-house manufacturing facilities. These therapies are anticipated to emerge as viable alternatives to conventional treatment options.

The scope of this report primarily includes manufacturing of advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs) that involve the use of immune cells such as T-cells, Tregs, dendritic cells, tumor cells and NK cells, and stem cells such as adult stem cells, human embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs).

Several players, including cell therapy developers, research institutes, contract manufacturing organizations, and government and non-profit organizations, are playing a critical role in the development and manufacturing of these cell therapies. In fact, a number of these players have made heavy investments to expand their existing capabilities and establish new facilities for cell therapy products in order to meet the increasing demand.

Additionally, stakeholders have received significant support from governments worldwide, in terms of funding and establishment of consortiums to accelerate the transition of these therapies from laboratories to clinics. It is important to highlight that companies that offer logistics and operational services have developed systems / tools for safer and quicker delivery of therapies from manufacturing sites to patients; this has been identified as one of the key challenges in the overall development process.

During the course of our study, we identified over 110 organizations that are actively involved in the manufacturing of cell therapies.

Example Highlights

Overall, we identified over 60 industry players and 50 academic institutes / non-profit organizations that are actively contributing in the field of cell-therapy manufacturing. We came across 68 players that are involved in manufacturing of immunotherapies and 66 players that possess capabilities for manufacturing adult stem cell therapies. Further, 28 organizations have facilities for both immunotherapies and adult stem cell therapies. Within the stem cell therapy market, we identified 15 and 17 organizations that are involved in the manufacturing of ESCs and iPSCs, respectively.

As majority of cell therapy products are in early phase of development, several manufacturers have facilities that meet the clinical scale production requirements. However, some players (31, as per our research) have developed / are developing commercial scale capacity for cell therapy production. Examples include (in alphabetical order) apceth Biopharma, Brammer Bio, Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult, CELLforCURE, Cognate BioServices, EUFETS, Guy's and St Thomas' Facility, Lonza, MaSTherCell, PharmaCell and WuXi AppTec.

Although the current market landscape is dominated by contract manufacturers, some well-established cell therapy developers have set up in-house manufacturing capabilities to support their requirements of cGMP grade cells. Examples include (in alphabetical order) Adaptimmune, Argos Therapeutics, Cell Medica, Cellular Biomedicine Group, Juno Therapeutics, Kite Pharma and SOTIO. In addition, we identified over 10 organizations that manufacture cell-based therapies for their own clinical research as well as offer contract services to other organizations Examples include (in alphabetical order) Amsterdam BioTherapeutics Unit (AmBTU), apceth Biopharma, Children's GMP / GMP facility (St. Jude Children's Research Hospital), Cook Myosite, John Goldmann Centre for Cellular Therapy (Imperial College London), MolMed, and PCT (a Caladrius Company).

North America has the maximum number of cell therapy manufacturing facilities (~ 43%), followed by the EU where ~40% of the global cell therapy manufacturing facilities are located. Specifically, in the EU, maximum number of manufacturing facilities are located in the UK (~44%). Other emerging pockets for cell therapy manufacturing include Australia, China, Japan, Singapore, South Korea and Israel; facilities in these regions primarily cater to the Asia-Pacific markets.

Over 140 collaborations have been inked between cell therapy developers, cell therapy manufacturers and other stakeholders of the industry. The motive behind the partnerships varies; they have been signed for obtaining manufacturing services, gaining access to services related to data management, reagent supply and logistics, upgrading technologies for manufacturing processes, and acquisition of manufacturing facilities.

The near-term demand for manufacturing of cell-based therapies will primarily be driven by clinical candidates. In the longer term, the currently approved therapies and late-stage therapies (that are likely to get commercialized in future) will act as key drivers of the market. Our outlook is highly promising; we expect the market for cell therapy manufacturing to grow at an annualized growth rate of ~42% over the course of next ten years and be worth over USD 4 billion in 2027.

The use of live cells for therapeutic purposes can be traced back to 1968, when patients were first successfully treated with allogeneic human hematopoietic stem cell transplants. This practice has now become an integral part of clinical procedures in the space of bone marrow regeneration and organ transplantation. Cell-based therapies are an emerging segment of the overall biopharmaceutical industry.

Post the approval of first cell-based therapy, Carticel®, in 1997 in the US, the field has rapidly advanced and a number of such therapies are currently under development. Given the personalized nature of these treatment options, they are highly specific and hold the potential to address unmet medical needs associated with the treatment of several disorders. The promising therapeutic potential has led many pharmaceutical companies and investors to put in a significant amount of capital towards the development and commercialization of these therapies.

Popular examples of approved cell-based therapies include (in order of their year of approval) Carticel®, CreaVax-RCC®, JACE, ReliNethra, PROVENGE® and Prochymal®. In addition, over 500 cell-based therapy candidates are currently in different stages of clinical development; these are being evaluated in over 1,000 active clinical studies in various regions across the globe. The growing number of cell therapy candidates, coupled with their rapid progression through the various phases of clinical development, continues to create an increasing demand for facilities that offer manufacturing services for these therapies.

The market already has a wide array of well-established players, mid-sized companies and start-ups. Several industry players as well as academic institutes are significantly contributing to the production of GMP grade cell types. In addition, the market has witnessed the entry of several players that offer novel technology solutions, aimed at improving and upgrading existing cell-based therapies and their manufacturing processes. We have observed that such players have signed multiple partnerships / collaborations with an aim to optimize, scale-up and expand the capabilities for production of cell-based therapies.

Looking at the evolutionary trends, we believe that the cell therapy manufacturing market will continue to be steadily driven in the mid to long term by expansion of existing manufacturing facilities and establishment of new dedicated facilities. Technological advancements to mitigate challenges posed by conventional methods of production will act as a key enabler to this growth.
