Digitalization brings biomanufacturing to the next level.
The biomanufacturing sector is experiencing a digitalization transformation that is aligned with Industry 4.0. According to Frost & Sullivan's recent analysis on the digital biomanufacturing industry, digital tools applied across processes, monitoring, analytics, and operations have accelerated biomanufacturing with a data-driven approach. Some of the most difficult challenges in biomanufacturing are scalability and reproducibility, particularly in the production of biologics and cell and gene therapies. However, digitalization enables a long-term, effective, cost-effective, and error-free biomanufacturing system.
"Digitalization improves the entire value chain of manufacturing biologics, competitive generic therapy (CGT) products, and vaccines," said Neeraja Vettekudath, Healthcare Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. "Automated processes, remote monitoring, and digital supply chains accelerate biomanufacturing rates of biopharmaceuticals."
Vettekudath added: "Digitalization deploys advanced sensors, artificial intelligence (AI)/machine learning (ML), and blockchain to create platforms. It builds seamless biomanufacturing systems where information is passed from one stage to the next. This increases efficiency, creating growth opportunities for digital biomanufacturing solution providers, enablers, and adopters."
To capitalize on the growth prospects of digital biomanufacturing, market participants should:
