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

The global Medical Affairs Outsourcing market size is expected to be worth around US$ 3.50 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Medical Affairs Outsourcing market size was valued at US$ 1.9 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 12.5% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

Transformation in medical education and the rising number of orphan therapies for the treatment of rare diseases are some of the key factors propelling the market growth. The pharmaceutical companies are looking for assistance to systematically position the therapeutic outcomes of these therapies in the market. According to a report published by IQVIA in 2020, the U.S. FDA has approved 80 orphan indications in 2017 and about 57 in early 2020.

Changes in the reimbursement scenario and pricing pressure are expected to increase the adoption of cost-saving measures by the pharmaceutical and medical device companies. This is anticipated to promote off-shoring of medical affairs outsourcing in countries like India and China. Pharmaceutical companies are outsourcing medical affairs services to get high-quality documents, control the R&D cost, and reduce investment costs required to train the medical affairs team. Furthermore, the pharmaceutical and medical device companies are outsourcing their medical affairs services to diverge their business activities and manage product life cycles.

Report Highlights

Medical writing & publishing was the largest service segment in 2020 and accounted for a revenue share of 35%. Most of the big pharma companies are outsourcing their clinical data management to professional medical writing & publishing service providers. With the increasing number of diverse pharma products being launched in the market, the need for professional medical writers has increased drastically, which is estimated to support the segment growth.

The medical science liaisons (MSLs) segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR of 12.8% from 2021 to 2028. Medical science liaisons are medical specialists with advanced scientific training. They are experts in communicating complex medical information to a variety of stakeholders. As MSLs are majorly required after the product launch, it’s not cost-effective for pharmaceutical or medical device companies to keep MSLs on staff, which is a key factor driving the segment growth. Also, to overcome insufficient and non-uniform training, pharmaceutical & medical devices companies are expected to majorly outsource MSL activities to CROs over the forecast period.

The pharmaceutical segment held the largest market share of over 52% in 2020 and is estimated to retain its leading position throughout the forecast years. Due to various patent expirations, the requirement of medical affairs service providers has increased for the preparation of drafts of new patents.

The pharmaceutical industry has been experiencing slow growth, delayed drug approvals, and insufficiency in the pharma production supply chain has anticipated a long-term impact on the pharmaceutical sector due to the global pandemic. The biopharmaceutical segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR of over 13.5%. The biopharma industry is focusing more on the core activities related to drug development, which is expected to drive demand for medical affairs outsourcing services in the segment.

North America was the leading regional market in 2020 and accounted for a revenue share of over 35%. The unavailability of medical affairs experts is a major challenge, which has encouraged biopharmaceutical and medical device companies based in North America to outsource certain functions to individuals with a high level of expertise in the domain.
