API peptides and protein-based drugs are promising therapeutics for the treatment of a variety of metabolic and oncological disorders. More than 100 approved peptide-based therapeutics are currently available in the market, while more than 600 peptide-based pharmacological leads are being investigated worldwide, across various phases of development.

Peptide API products have become popular due to their proven pharmacological value and favourable safety profiles. The increasing demand for API peptide products is in turn increasing the demand for peptide API manufacturers who also offer contract manufacturing services.

Contract manufacturing opportunities in API peptides and proteins

Advancements in drug design have led to the development of new drug molecules in the form of API peptides and proteins. Selective delivery of these molecules at well-defined dosing regimens and preserving their structural integrity has, however, remained challenging. New techniques are being applied to meet the challenges associated with the formulation and delivery of API peptides and proteins.

Contract peptide API manufacturers can benefit by investing in new technologies and capabilities to handle the production of complex peptide and protein molecules. Contract manufacturers are also exploring technologies that support the large-scale manufacturing of proteins and peptides such as lyophilisation, spray drying and microbial expression.
