Three Decades of Experience Delivering Stainless-Steel Solutions for the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Market

Good engineering practices & a commitment to high-quality standards of manufacturing are some of the reasons why globally recognised pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies choose Spectac International.

Quality in the Pharma Manufacturing

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. It covers all aspects of production from the starting materials, premises, and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff. The aim of the GEP is “to minimise the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product.”

Complying with Good Manufacturing Practice (GEP) is a must for any pharmaceutical company wanting to bring its products to market, Europe is no exception. Any manufacturer of medicines intended for the EU market, regardless of where it is located, must comply with GMP. This is coordinated locally by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

The Benefits of Using Stainless-Steel Vessels

There are many advantages of using stainless-steel manufactured vessels in the pharmaceutical industry where rigid quality and hygiene controls are of the utmost importance to avoid any contamination. Moreover, it makes the production process much easier and more cost effective for the user. To learn more about the tremendous benefits of using this metal for the manufacture of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical products, we invite you to read this article.

The Growing Pharma & Biopharma Industry

According to the Global Use of Medicines report from the IQVIA Institute for Human Data Science, the global market for pharmaceuticals reached $1.2 trillion in 2018, an increase of $100 billion from 2017. It is expected that this market will exceed $1.5 trillion by 2023 growing at a 3−6% compound annual growth rate over the next five years.

It doesn’t come as a surprise that more than one-third of drugs launched in the next five years will be brought to market by emerging biopharma companies. This confirms the continued growth surge of biopharmaceuticals products launching into the marketplace. An article published in Pharma Manufacturing late last year titled “Biopharma Market: An Inside Look” stated that “total annual revenue has increased from about $4.4 billion in 1990 to now about $275 billion, an increase of 6,250 percent, with biopharmaceuticals now more than 25 percent of the total pharmaceutical market.”
