1. Increasing Capital Expenditures seen with bio/pharmaceutical companies

Bio/pharmaceutical companies have increased their annual Capital Expenditure (CapEx) by 6.8% ($35.3 billion) from 2010 to 2015, while the overall revenue growth of the bio/pharmaceutical industry has been just 3.3% during the same period.

The major factor that impedes quicker growth of the contract manufacturing and development industry is captive capacity; and employment of capital towards development of new plant and equipment by bio/pharmaceutical companies is an important factor that indicate the industry's approach towards the make or buy decision.

In the past 5 years, bio/pharma companies have invested about $150 billion for new plant and facilities, as reported by Bio/Pharma CapEx Trends 2016, which was 10 times more than the investment done by CMOs for themselves.
