Executive Summary

The dark side of outsourcing is coming into view: worldwide capacity for biological manufacturing is currently maxed out. Firms with biological products still in clinical development could find their progress to market delayed, if they can't make enough protein for trials. Others unable to meet demand for approved products will have to reconcile themselves to lost sales. Demand will likely exceed capacity for several years to come--putting companies that do have manufacturing capacity in strong bargaining positions.
