The Opportunity Within the Lyophilization Services Market for Biopharmaceuticals Is Projected to Grow at an Annualized Rate of ~7%, Till 2035, Claims Roots Analysis

Setting up in-house lyophilization capabilities and operations is an expensive and time-consuming process. Considering the high capital investment and technical / routine operations-related challenges associated with lyophilization of biopharmaceuticals, a growing number of biologic developers are outsourcing their lyophilization operations to qualified contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs) in order to leverage their capabilities and yield cost savings opportunities.
Characterized by a rapidly growing pipeline of biosimilars and novel biologics, and the existing challenges associated with lyophilization of biotherapeutics, stakeholders are increasingly relying on service providers offering multidisciplinary expertise in this domain

Roots Analysis has announced the addition of “Lyophilization Services Market for Biopharmaceuticals (2nd Edition), 2022 – 2035” report to its list of offerings.


In order to achieve longer and commercially viable shelf lives, lyophilization has emerged as the preferred approach, enabling the manufacturing of stable and dry biopharmaceutical formulations. Presently, a number of biopharmaceutical companies are outsourcing their lyophilization operations to contract service providers that have dedicated facilities, equipment and production lines for this purpose. Further, the technological advancements in this domain have resulted in improved productivity and efficiency of the overall process.
