Q&A: A Q&A With Brik Eyre, GM Of Baxter Healthcare BioPharma Solutions
By Dan Schell, Life Science Leader magazine
How are CMOs differentiating their offerings?
Brik Eyre: The CMO industry has become increasingly competitive. There continues to be overcapacity in the market. We are seeing an increase in globalization, customer service philosophies such as on-time delivery commitments, expansion of service offerings (i.e. additional regulatory, development, and packaging services), and product innovation as a way for the industry to remain competitive. CMOs are evolving their service and product offerings with a specific focus on accelerating time to market to maximize the partner's commercial value. Developing manufacturing capabilities in emerging markets to reduce costs is also being seen within the CMO industry.
