The liposome development and manufacturing services market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of nearly 10% till 2035, cla

Driven by the development of advanced methods for preparation and characterization of liposomes, and the application of these molecules in therapeutics and diagnostics, the demand for liposomes is expected to rise in the coming years.




Roots Analysis has announced the addition of “Liposome Manufacturing Market, 2022-2035” report to its list of offerings.


Despite the growing interest in liposome-based therapeutics and diagnostics, the development and manufacturing of liposomes is associated with several challenges, including complex manufacturing processes, huge capital investments, inadequate clinical grade production and GMP compliant industrial scale-up, lack of facilities with necessary infrastructure, as well as concerns related to storage and stability. In order to deal with the aforementioned challenges, a number of pharmaceutical companies have demonstrated the preference to outsource their respective liposome development and manufacturing operations to specialized service providers.
