Biopharmaceutical products, and cell and gene therapies, are currently produced in fixed facilities that require a significant upfront, at-risk capital investment. Often, these traditional facilities are also product-dedicated, meaning that the facility lifecycle correlates to the product lifecycle and can require significant investment to retrofit for new applications.
Modular and mobile concepts offer an opportunity to shift from these large, fixed assets to networks of smaller, standardized manufacturing facilities. These can be built in less than half the time and in a way that defers costs until there is greater certainty about market demand and the probability of clinical and market success.
