In 2011, total global spending on outsourced drug manufacturing reached $31.9bn, having expanded at a double-digit pace over the past two decades. Over the next five years, the CMO industry will continue to record strong gains, with total revenues rising by 12.0% per year, on average.

In 2011, the US and Western Europe accounted for a combined $23.3bn in CMO revenues from services performed in these regions, representing 73% of total global CMO fees of $31.9bn. However, China, India, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Other Asia regions will outpace the traditional manufacturing centres of the US and Western Europe.

In 2012 and 2013, drug manufacturers will be extremely cautious about investments in new technologies, equipment or facilities, preferring to outsource to established experts rather than incur heavy capital costs of building, expanding or upgrading their own internal capabilities, which will stimulate contract manufacturing.
