 expert Tracelink predicts that as many as 400 contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs) will not be ready for the approaching US and EU serialization compliance deadlines.

This would leave many pharma firms without adequate support for serialization deadlines and, therefore, could spark a major shift in the CMO marketplace.
