SES114a - The Impact of the Pandemic Response on the Industry’s Manufacturing Infrastructure

Oct 31, 2022 3:30pm ‐ Oct 31, 2022 5:00pm


The preeminence of mRNA and viral vector-based vaccines in the COVID-19 pandemic response has reshaped the global pharmaceutical manufacturing infrastructure. The speed and scale of investment into manufacturing capacity for these life-saving COVID-19 vaccines has brought these new modalities to commercial maturity in heroic fashion; but in so doing, has also created a massive supply glut with vast implications for manufacturers across the globe. As they seek to simultaneously satisfy current contracts and reposition their production capacity towards products with longer-term demand, manufacturers now face a huge challenge in how best to adapt. This presentation will describe the current manufacturing capacity environment, explain the new modalities and the processes involved in their production, and provide a perspective on how the industry can most effectively reallocate capacity and future-proof facilities.
