Situation:

A global CMO offering aseptic fill/finish capabilities was interested in entering the small molecule API manufacturing market and contracted Kineticos to carry out a comprehensive market opportunity assessment, which included an analysis of the clinical development pipeline and a competitive landscape assessment.

Process:

Kineticos leveraged both publicly available information and proprietary databases to identify all existing small molecule API clinical trials before segmenting the trial data by phase of development, dosage type, potency, geography, etc. To provide the client with an overview of the competitive landscape, Kineticos subsequently identified top tier competitors in small molecule API manufacturing and conducted a SWOT analysis on each organization.

Outcome:

Kineticos provided the sponsor with a segmented analysis of the market opportunity for small molecule API manufacturing along with a nuanced view of the existing competitive landscape. The analysis helped the executive team understand the market potential and associated risks of a market that they ultimately decided to enter.
