Published Date : Feb 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global Biotechnology & Pharmaceutical Services Outsourcing market size is expected to be worth around US$ 91.8 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Biotechnology & Pharmaceutical Services Outsourcing market size was valued at US$ 61.5 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

The high demand for biologics along with small molecules has led to the expansion of service portfolios of Contract Manufacturing Organizations (CMOs)/Contract Research Organizations (CROs) for biotechnology and pharmaceutical production. Small pharma/biotech companies are facing challenges while performing in-house development, regulatory affairs, product maintenance, product design & development, product testing & validation, and training & education, such as lack of substantial expertise and expensive capability. This, in turn, has created lucrative opportunities for the growth of CMOs & CROs. Contract services are growing and becoming strategic, targeted, and planned. These factors are expected to play a pivotal role in enhancing the share of CMOs/CROs in the overall market.

Growing pricing pressure, regulatory challenges, and patent expiration have led to shrinking margins in the biotech and pharmaceutical industry. Contract services offer cost saving to their clients and also help save time utilized in operations and management of a production & research facility. Furthermore, outsourcing services assist in overcoming trade barriers and facilitate the entry of firms into foreign markets. Owing to these advantages, several firms choose to outsource services rather than investing capital in production equipment and hiring skilled labor.

Report Highlights

The consulting services segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 19% in 2020 and will retain its leading position throughout the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increasing M&A activities and constantly changing regulatory protocols. For instance, the government of China issued a notification to upgrade the quality of generic drugs, remove the backlog of drug applications, improve the quality and transparency of the review and approval process, and encourage new drug R&D in line with global development. Moreover, pharma and biotech markets have witnessed the continuous entry of new players, such as Signa Medical Writing, bioSyntagma, and Fieve Clinical Research, Inc.

These companies need to be compliant with set standards and norms, for which consulting is essential as new entrants lack such capabilities. Consulting services comprise regulatory compliance, remediation, quality management systems consulting, and other services. However, the other services segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the rising outsourcing of generics and biosimilar manufacturing as CMOs are offering services at lower costs. The other services segment is inclusive of contract manufacturing, product upgrade, and IT consulting.

The pharma end-use segment led the global biotech and pharma services outsourcing market in 2020 and accounted for a revenue share of over 55%. The segment will grow further at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Contract service providers are recognized as an effective strategic decision to curb the issues of drug shortfall and high production costs, as well as meet the growing demand.

Lack of resources has prompted many pharmaceutical companies to outsource drug development and manufacturing to CROs and CMOs. The CROs and CMOs offer highly sophisticated development and manufacturing services, such as preclinical development, clinical development, commercial manufacturing, clinical manufacturing, precision injection molding, high-speed automation, assembly, fill/finish, and others for a range of pharma products.

North America accounted for the highest market share of over 54% in 2020 owing to the presence of several established CROs and CMOs, such as Covance Inc., and growing R&D investments by life sciences and pharmaceutical companies in the region. In addition, the expansion of foreign CMOs and CROs into the region is expected to propel market growth. For instance, in September 2019, Bora Pharmaceuticals received FDA approval for its CMO services, and in October 2019, it opened a sales office in Delaware to expand its business outside Asia.
