Healthcare Patent Filing Outsourcing Market Growth & Trends

The global healthcare patent filing outsourcing market size is expected to reach USD 1.8 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2021 to 2028. In-house departments of pharmaceutical and medical devices firms typically do not have sufficient time to carry out patent filing processes. Even if they do, it will be a costly option for the firms. Therefore, the market is significantly driven by the growing need for cost-saving and time-saving in patent filing processes.

The market suffered a hefty decline of 2.1% in 2020 owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizations such as the European Patent Office (EPO) and the United State Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) announced relaxations such as extension of deadlines in order to accommodate 2019 novel coronavirus related delays and interruptions. However, with the lifting of COVID-19 related shelter-in-place mandates and commercialization of the vaccine, the bottle necking of patent filing is clearing. The market is projected to recover from 2021 onwards and expand with a lucrative CAGR over the forecast period.

Growing innovations in the medical device and pharmaceutical space is driving the market. Surging number of start-ups in the healthcare industry with new and innovative products, will also boost market growth. Patent applications are majorly filed by the well-established players in the healthcare industry such as Novartis, Covidien, Boston Scientific, Medtronic, Ethicon, Olympus Corp. These companies innovate in-house, partner with high-tech companies for consumer-facing offerings, and also license technologies from universities.
