Given the current technical and operational challenges associated with the manufacturing of mRNA-based products, innovators in the biopharmaceutical industry are increasingly relying on the mRNA synthesis and contract manufacturing service providers.


Roots Analysis has announced the addition of “mRNA Synthesis and Manufacturing Services Market (2nd Edition), 2022–2035 report to its list of offerings.


Owing to the recent success and growing pipeline of mRNA-based products in the market, mRNA, as a therapeutic agent, has gained significant traction from the medical community. However, due to challenges, such as high capital requirement, stringent regulations and lack of technical expertise, outsourcing has become a preferred business model and CMOs are upgrading their existing capabilities and service portfolios to meet the increased demand for mRNA-based products.


Key Market Insights


Presently, 30+ companies claim to offer custom synthesis services for mRNA, globally.

Majority of the service providers are mid-sized players (44%), followed by small (35%), large (12%) and very large players (9%). Additionally, more than 25% of the stakeholders were established post 2010. It is also worth mentioning that over 50% of the total players are based in North America, specifically in the US.
