Our approach to remaining a leader in TIDES

Bachem Approach to Remaining Leader in TIDES

Peptides and oligonucleotides (TIDES) are complex molecules whose role in medicine is growing rapidly. Demand for TIDES specialists is expected to increase as the production requires specific knowledge and technology. The global peptide market is forecast to double by 2031, corresponding to an annual growth rate of nearly ten percent1Bachem Market Analyses 2023.

This is an excellent opportunity for a specialist like Bachem. As a leading manufacturer, Bachem is an attractive partner for companies wishing to develop and produce TIDES-based therapeutics. With increasing demand comes the need for large-scale production. Bachem can meet this need because we operate globally with multiple facilities in different regions.

Looking at the value we create for our customers and analyzing the environment in which suppliers of pharma manufacturers operate, we have identified three areas that will shape Bachem’s current and future role. We aim to deliver across all three of these areas of operations to support partners, customers, and the global supply chain that delivers medicines to patients.


Bachem provides three main models of offerings:

Bachem Offerings
  • Contract Manufacturing (CMO): We offer CMO services for customers who need to produce large volumes of standardized TIDES-based active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). This is a space where customers already have clearly defined manufacturing processes. At the same time, Bachem provides infrastructure, expertise, and growing capacity to meet the customer’s needs of our customers.
  • Contract Development and Manufacturing (CDMO): In this space, we offer CDMO services for customers developing new peptide and oligonucleotide therapies. We work closely with our customers to develop and optimize manufacturing processes, manufacture API for their clinical studies & validate the processes for commercial supply. We provide various services, including analytical testing , development and validation, and regulatory compliance.
  • Trailblazing CDMO: Bachem is deeply committed to innovation. One aspect of this is that we want to remain trailblazers in new technologies that are cutting cutting-edge for the most complex challenges this industry faces in each new generation of API development. In the space of “trailblazing CDMO”, Bachem aims to be the first to apply new technologies – sometimes encouraging customers to pilot a new approach that will help them gain an edge in the future.
