Pharma Industry to Spend $4.5 Billion on Digital Transformation by 2030

Pharma 4.0 concepts are taking hold in pharmaceutical manufacturing. The industry’s unique characteristics are driving investments in digital transformation by pharmaceutical manufacturers. ABI Research forecasts that overall, digital factory revenue will top US$4.5 billion in 2030 with spending by pharmaceutical manufacturers on data analytics forecast to grow by a 27% CAGR and be worth US$1.2 billion in 2030, as manufacturers look to track, optimize their operations, and boost productivity.

While regulators encourage, rather than stifle, innovation, the industry’s competitive dynamics require pharmaceutical firms to optimize production lines to maximize yield for the time a drug is subject to patent protection. Contract manufacturers look to digital technologies to enable them to support clients simultaneously. After patents expire, generics manufacturers need to produce as many products as possible. The utilization of data analytics will support each type of manufacturer’s efforts to increase yield.

Moving from manufacturing drugs and vaccines in batches to optimizing the manufacturing process with continuous manufacturing will be critical to increasing yields. “But the active pharmaceutical ingredients are susceptible to changes in their immediate environment. The batch must be scrapped if the condition of the ingredients or formulation fall outside accepted parameters. Manufacturers will need to invest in analytics to help develop digital twins of their operations so that they can prepare their production lines for continuous manufacturing,” says Michael Larner, Industrial and Manufacturing Principal Analyst.

Here's how much vaccines are selling for on the illegal market

CNN Business

Counterfeit vaccine cards and what are being billed as Covid-19 vaccines are now for sale on the dark web, according to a report released Tuesday.

Some experts say illegal markets around vaccine cards and digital passports are inevitable. "Not everyone has access to the vaccine; roll-outs are slow in many countries, and people are tired of lock-downs and curfews," said Michela Menting, who covers cybersecurity for ABI Research. "If people can easily get hold of a fake passport to avoid restrictions, then they will, and an illicit market will spring up around it."
