Extractables and Leachables Testing Services Market, 2018-2028

Extractables and Leachables Testing Services Market, 2018-2028

Harmful chemicals / contaminants from primary packaging have often been shown to migrate into pharmaceutical products, threatening the safety of several patients who use these products. For instance, in 2010, McNeil Consumer Healthcare was compelled to recall more than 500 lots of Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl and Zyrtec upon being made aware of the presence of an antifungal chemical, called 2, 4, 6-tribromoanisole (which is used to chemically treat shipping pallets), in the aforementioned product formulations. In this particular case, the chemical, which is a potential carcinogen, had leached from the pallet, through the outer packaging into the drug containers. It is worth highlighting that this incident caused the manufacturer to suffer a loss of approximately USD 900 million. In fact, in 2014, data by the FDA demonstrated that in the previous two years, there have been over 2,000 drug and device recalls. In the year 2014 alone, FDA has recalled over 800 drugs. In addition, in 2015, Allergan voluntarily recalled certain batches of its eye ointment due to contamination reported by customers.

Considering the aforementioned cases, it can be inferred that, during drug product manufacturing and fill / finish, it is important to consider not only the impurity profiles of the drugs, but also identify potential sources of contamination in the containers / packaging material used. Extractables is the term used to refer to compounds that are extracted from the material used to fabricate closed container systems, in the presence of a particular solvent. On the other hand, leachables are substances that passively migrate into drug formulations from the container closure system used, upon direct contact with the product. Further, due to high variability in the type of impurities (organic (volatile, non-volatile or semi- volatile compounds) or inorganic (metals or salts) elements) that are usually extracted / leached out of various manufacturing components and container closures, it is not possible to identify, characterize and quantify all extractables, using a single analytical technique. Nowadays, a variety of testing solutions / assays are available to assess the risk associated with the migration of mobile chemical species from either the components used during manufacturing, or storage containers. Moreover, regulatory bodies have implemented stringent guidelines, making it mandatory for drug developers and packaging service providers to closely monitor the levels of extractables and leachables in pharmaceutical products, drug delivery systems and biomedical devices. Presently, a number of companies offer services for extractables and leachables testing, and such offerings have grown to become an important segment of the overall pharmaceutical industry.

One of the key objectives of the report was to understand the primary growth drivers and estimate the future size of the market. Based on a proprietary forecast model, we have provided insights on the likely evolution of the market in different regions, including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and the rest of the world. In addition, we have provided the likely distribution of the opportunity across the type of service provider companies (small-sized, mid-sized and large companies) and types of products being tested (pharmaceutical products, container closure systems, medical devices and combination products). The opinions and insights presented in this study were influenced by inputs solicited via a comprehensive survey and discussions conducted with several key players in this domain. The report features detailed transcripts of interviews held with the following industry stakeholders:

Cheryl Johnson (Commercial Development Manager of Biotechnology, Alcami)
Mike Ludlow (Technical Study Manager Drug Development Services, LGC)

All actual figures have been sourced and analyzed from publicly available information forums and inputs from primary research. Financial figures mentioned in this report are in USD, unless otherwise specified.

EXAMPLE HIGHLIGHTS

1. During our research, we identified over 100 players offering a wide range of extractables and leachables testing services for a variety of pharmaceutical products (such as parenteral formulations, ophthalmic formulations, inhalation drugs, oral solutions and topical or transdermal products), medical devices (such as single use systems, combination products, implants and electronic nicotine delivery systems) and container closure systems. Some players claim to offer services for majority of the products listed above. Examples of such players include (in alphabetical order) American Preclinical Services, Bibra Toxicology Advice & Consulting, Sterigenics, Pine Lake Laboratories, Smithers Rapra and Vimta. It is also worth mentioning that the market is highly fragmented, featuring the presence of several large companies (33%), mid-sized companies (26%) and small-sized companies (41%).

2. Approximately 50% of the companies offering extractables and leachables testing services are based in North America, primarily in the US. Examples of key players in this region include (in alphabetical order, no specific selection criteria) Aspen, Alcami, EKG Labs, Merck, NSF and VR Analytical. On the other hand, close to 35% of such companies are based in Europe, while the remaining are located in the Asia Pacific and the rest of the world. Examples of service providers based in the Europe and Asia Pacific include (in alphabetical order, no specific selection criteria) Eurofins, First Source Laboratories, GVK Biosciences, Intertek, LGC, Reading Scientific Services, Sartorius, Schott and WuXi AppTec.

3. Companies engaged in this domain use a diverse range of analytical techniques, such as GC-MS, LC-MS, ICP, HPLC, FT-IR and NMR, for the detection of a wide range of potential impurities in pharmaceutical products and / or primary packaging. Over 30% of the companies we identified offer the necessary expertise for a relatively broader suite of analytical techniques. Examples include (in alphabetical order, no specific selection criteria) ARDL, Avecia Pharma, BioScreen Testing Services, Mérieux NutriSciences Italia, Quantex Laboratories, Recipharm, and VITAS Analytical Services.

4. Nearly 30 acquisitions have taken place among stakeholders in this domain during the period 2013-2018. An evaluation of the financial terms of these deals revealed that over 40% of the companies (for which the acquisition cost was revealed) were acquired for relatively higher deal multiples as compared to their stated revenues at the time of their acquisition. Examples of companies acquired after 2016 include (in alphabetical order) Concept Life Sciences, Crawford Scientific, EAG Laboratories, Halo Pharmaceutical, and Toxikon Europe.

5. Majority of the service providers claim to operate in compliance to guidelines issued by the FDA. In addition, we were able to confirm that nearly 50 service providers have based their working protocols in accordance to US Pharmacopeia guidelines. Similar guidelines (specific to analytical testing) have also been laid down by other regulatory authorities across the globe; examples include ICH, EMEA, MHRA, PQRI, BPOG and ISO.

6. We expect the extractables and leachables testing services market to grow at an annualized rate of ~10% in the period between 2018 and 2028. It is important to mention that small and mid-sized service providers with expertise in analytical testing services, including extractables and leachables testing, are estimated to currently capture nearly 30% of the overall market share; by 2028, this share is likely to grow up to 40%.

7. In terms of the geographical activity, North America (primarily US) and Europe currently capture the largest share (close to 60%) in the extractables and leachables services market. This is followed by Asia Pacific and rest of the world, which currently capture around 40% of the overall market share. This trend is not likely to change significantly in the future.
