DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “mRNA Synthesis and Manufacturing Services Market by Type of Products, Application Areas, Scale of Operation, Geographical Regions: Industry Trends and Global Forecasts, 2021-2030” report has been added to’s offering.

The “mRNA Synthesis and Manufacturing Market, 2021-2030” report features an extensive study of the current market landscape and future opportunity for the players involved in the synthesis of research- and GMP-grade mRNA for use in development of therapeutics and vaccines. The study presents an in-depth analysis, highlighting the capabilities of various stakeholders engaged in this domain, across different geographies.

One of the key objectives of the report was to estimate the future growth potential of mRNA synthesis services market, over the coming decade. Based on multiple parameters, such as mRNA products market, cost of goods sold, manufacturing cost and share of outsourcing, we have provided an informed estimate on the evolution of the market for the period 2021-2030.

The applications of RNA, in both basic research and clinical R&D, have increased after advances in the field of molecular biology have significantly improved the in vitro stability of such molecules. Presently, there are more than 150 therapeutics and vaccines, either based on mRNA molecules, or involve the use of mRNA in their respective production processes, which are being evaluated for the treatment of a wide variety of indications.

It is worth highlighting that most of the aforementioned product candidates are in the preclinical stages of development. Prominent examples include dendritic cell vaccines, T cell therapies, other anti-cancer therapies/vaccines, and stem cell therapies, which are modified in vitro using transgenes encoded into mRNA vectors; on the other hand, there are certain novel therapeutic paradigms that are exploring the in vivo transformation of cells using stable mRNAs (carrying therapeutic gene segments) that are delivered via viable nanocarriers.

In fact, the first two of the vaccines to be approved (Pfizer / BioNTech’s BNT-162 and Moderna’s mRNA-1273) against the SARS-CoV-2 viral pathogen, were based on mRNA and have recently been approved for use across various global regions. According to the CDC, more than 374 million doses of vaccines have been delivered in the US alone.

The success of the anti-COVID-19 vaccines has created an enormous need for consistent supply of these new vaccines; for instance, Pfizer needs to deliver 1.6 billion doses and Moderna needs to produce between 800 million to 1 billion doses of their respective products by the end of 2021. As a result, there is an evident increase in demand for mRNA manufacturing capacity.

Fundamentally, the production of this biomolecule is complex, cost intensive and requires specialized expertise. In addition, scaling up the manufacturing of RNA is also associated with a number of challenges, mostly related to process development, and maintaining purity and stability.

Referring to scaling up of manufacturing activities to meet pandemic level requirements, Tanya Alcorn, Vice President of Pfizer’s biopharmaceutical global supply chain, recently identified the need for harmony in the efforts of the various stakeholders (suppliers and manufacturing teams) in order to adequately amplify production output.

Moreover, some of the processes associated with mRNA production, such as the purification step, involve the use of hazardous solvents/materials. Once manufactured, mRNA therapeutics need to be stored in conditions that do not compromise their stability (thereby, requiring specialized facilities and cold chain transportation); they also require appropriate drug delivery systems to efficiently administer the intervention (in a manner that they can avoid degradation by cellular endonucleases).

Given such technical and operational challenges associated with the production of RNA-based products, innovators in the biopharmaceutical industry are increasingly leaning on contract service providers. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a notable surge in outsourcing activity, with vaccines developers entering into strategic deals with contract service providers to cater to the urgent global demand. The services landscape features a mix of large, mid-sized and small companies, which claim to have mRNA-related capabilities.

Recent developments in this segment of the biopharmaceutical industry indicate that service providers are upgrading their capabilities and infrastructure to accommodate the current and anticipated demand for this novel class of biologics. In the foreseen future, as more of such RNA-based leads mature and move into the clinic and/or the market, we anticipate the mRNA synthesis service providers market to witness healthy growth.
