Biologics Manufacturing Japan 2019
Home to the second largest pharmaceutical market in the world, Japan has poised itself as one of the most lucrative biotech hubs in Asia and worldwide. Over recent years, the Japanese biologics market has opened its doors to both foreign companies entering the Japanese market and Japanese companies investing abroad. Japan’s biopharma sector has had a keen eye on alliance opportunities in markets beyond its borders and although the nature of its sector is a cautious one, its move towards transparency and international collaboration provides bountiful opportunities that both the domestic and international players stand to benefit from. The key drivers driving the growth of the biologics industry in Japan are the formation of numerous bio-clusters that house world-class universities with cutting-edge technologies and know-how, excellence in the implementation of automation technology, huge amounts of financial support for orphan drugs, tax breaks, and subsidies for new entrants in the market, the government’s push for the creation of technologies and services, and development of the supporting infrastructure. Factors hindering the growth of the biopharmaceutical industry mainly are from the bioprocessing side including high-manufacturing complexities, expensive purification processes and other challenges across the bioprocessing value chain.
The Inaugural Biologics Manufacturing Japan 2019, therefore, aims to provide a neutral platform to address the challenges faced in this sector including:
♦ High costs incurred in the downstream purification of highly complex molecules
♦ Purification process development to maximize process economy
♦ Difficulties in process development, scale-up and technology transfer for biologics
♦ The need for reduction of Cost-of-Goods for large-scale manufacturing
♦ Insights into the regulatory perspective on common pitfalls in analytical and CMC studies
♦ Technical knowledge of the advances in Single-Use Systems in USP & DSP
♦ Cost-Benefit analysis of CMO outsourcing strategies
Key Entities in the Japanese Biologics space include Chugai Pharmaceutical, Kyowa Hakko Kirin, UMN
Pharma, Daiichi Sankyo, Asahi Glass Co., Astellas Pharma and Fujifilm Holdings Corp among others.
The inaugural Biologics Manufacturing Japan will be the only bioprocessing focused platform in Japan for global partners and local stakeholders to leverage partnership opportunities, scientific innovation and manufacturing best practice case studies. This launch will see the complete network of BIG Pharma, International Biopharma, Japanese Biopharma, Contract Manufacturing Organisations, Academic & Research Institutes, Regulatory Authorities, Solution Providers and Technocrats under one roof. If Japan is the country you are looking at for plentiful opportunities in the bio-manufacturing space, then Biologics Manufacturing Japan 2019 is where you have to be!
