Pharmacovigilance Market Size, Share, Trends, Growth, Production, Consumption, Revenue, Company Analysis and Forecast 2021-2028

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

The global Pharmacovigilance market size is expected to be worth around US$ 14.98 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Pharmacovigilance market size was valued at US$ 6.36 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 11.9% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.

Growth Factors

The increasing incidence of Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR) is the key growth factor. ADR imposes a substantial burden on healthcare systems and is one of the prominent causes of morbidity in developed countries. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), approximately 5% of total hospitalizations in Europe each year are due to ADR. Pharmacovigilance services play an integral role in this clinical trial phase by assisting manufacturers in identifying adverse effects associated with the drug.

According to the World Health Organization's (WHO) report on pharmaceutical consumption, medicines to treat chronic diseases accounted for a larger proportion of the total volume of drug consumption in non-hospital setups. Hence, there has been a significant rise in the number of medicines made available to healthcare consumers. The rising demand for drugs has significantly heightened the need for the development of novel therapeutics via extensive clinical trials, which is expected to serve this market with lucrative opportunities.

Moreover, leading pharma companies in developed countries are focusing on outsourcing PV services to reduce costs and minimize operational expenses. This is anticipated to serve as an opportunity for contact research organizations in developing regions to gain more revenue share. Manufacturers are now focusing on remodeling their product development processes in an attempt to cater to patient needs across the globe. These factors are anticipated to fuel the demand for pharmacovigilance services during the forecast period.

Report Highlights

Contract outsourcing held the dominant share of 59.24% in 2020 and is expected to witness the fastest growth in the forthcoming years. This is due to the benefits associated with outsourcing such as risk mitigation, resource flexibility, reduction of upfront investments, and lower fixed cost. Contract outsourcing organizations provide solutions, such as process design Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), PV audits, and other customized services.

The dynamic growth of the contract outsourcing segment can also be attributed to the rapidly emerging CROs providing end-to-end clinical trial solutions, especially in the emerging economies of Asia Pacific, such as India, China, and Japan, enabling resources sharing, cost efficiency, resource flexibility, and expansion of operative capabilities. Outsourcing PV services are accompanied by benefits such as delivering services pertinent to highly complex regulatory requirements, helping to add scalability to accommodate growing product portfolios, and achieving aggressive cost targets. Contract outsourcing also helps reduce the complexity of clinical trials, allows faster approval of trials, and helps effective utilization of internal resources.

The in-house segment is anticipated to witness moderate growth over the forecast period as a consequence of extensive R&D by major pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies for the development of new drugs. This is expected to serve this industry with growth potential in the forthcoming years.

The phase III segment is expected to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period. Phase III trials are done to determine and establish the efficacy of drugs. These trials also provide additional information regarding possible drug interactions, drug safety, and effectiveness before the commercialization of the drug. The aforementioned factors are expected to drive revenue generation in the segment over the forecast period.

Spontaneous reporting held the largest share of 30.34% in 2020 owing to its wide usage in the detection of new, serious, and rare ADRs and its popularity as an efficient and inexpensive method. Wide usage of surveillance reports generated through this method by pharmaceutical industries and regulatory authorities is also responsible for the significant share of spontaneous reporting.

Cohort Event Monitoring (CEM) is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing application in the detection of a wide range of adverse clinical events. Conjugation of CEM with statistical tools and data mining systems, such as longitudinal health records, is responsible for the growing popularity of this type. It serves as an active form of surveillance method, which can also be used for new as well as older medicines, thus driving the segment.

Targeted spontaneous reporting is anticipated to witness the fastest growth in the near future owing to rising government initiatives to incorporate reporting methodologies other than spontaneous reporting by the European Network of Centers for Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacovigilance (ENCePP). Moreover, the benefits associated with targeted spontaneous reporting such as lower labor costs, greater affordability, feasibility in poor resource settings, and usage in routine monitoring are expected to fuel the segment growth.

Signal detection dominated the market with a revenue share of 39.24% in 2020. Spontaneous Reporting Systems (SRSs) use the dominant source of signals through which the suspected cases get voluntarily reported by the healthcare professionals to the other regulatory bodies. Accurate signal detection depends on various factors such as knowledge of the database, quality data, and tools designed to summarize, visualize, and evaluate the data. Nowadays, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and big data are being used by companies for better assessment of signals.

The case data management segment is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. The adverse event information can be generated from various modes, such as post-marketing programs, clinical trials, spontaneous reports, and literature.

The oncology segment held the largest share of 26.54% as of 2020. Monitoring the safety of cancer drugs is very important due to the associated side effects, which is propelling the demand for pharmacovigilance services. The drugs mostly have intrinsic biological toxicity and narrow therapeutic window, which can lead to serious adverse reactions in the body. The increasing incidence of cancer resulted in accelerated R&D and clinical research.

Pharmacovigilance helps in the early detection and spontaneous reporting of adverse drug reactions. Moreover, recent advancements in cancer treatments, such as targeted therapy, have some serious adverse effects and can compromise a patient’s quality of life. For instance, monoclonal antibodies were listed among the top 10 entries for spontaneous ADR reports with around 406,352 records from 2014 till 2018. Constantly changing reporting systems and emerging technology in pharmacovigilance are driving the segment.

The biotechnology companies segment is anticipated to witness lucrative growth in the forthcoming years owing to increasing new product development activities in this sector. In recent years, drugs are being developed and consumed at increasingly high rates. The use of drugs over longer periods by a large population can lead to adverse effects not seen in the clinical trials. For instance, Vioxx (an osteoarthritic/ acute pain medication) and Avandia (an anti-diabetic) were marketed for some time before a pattern of safety problems were detected with their use. The growing need for medical information by the regulatory authorities is also anticipated to fuel the growth of this segment.

North America held the largest revenue share of 33.97% in 2020 owing to the presence of key pharmaceutical and medical device players, contributing to the overall revenue in this region. The rising level of drug abuse and associated adverse drug reactions is a leading cause of morbidity and death.

Asia Pacific is expected to register a lucrative CAGR of 13.6% during the forecast period owing to the availability of various outsourcing organizations. Consequentially, there is improved productivity, cost efficiency, and resource sharing that is anticipated to propel the regional demand for pharmacovigilance in the forthcoming years. Furthermore, increasing awareness among patients, rising investments, and supportive government initiatives for meeting the requirements of the population are the factors driving the regional market.
