January 2021 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Pharmacovigilance Market Growth & Trends

The global pharmacovigilance market size is expected to reach USD 14.95 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 11.5% from 2021 to 2028. 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.

Industry participants are focusing on increasing R&D activities to develop better pharmacovigilance services. Companies are also adopting strategies including new product launches and mergers & acquisitions to gain a competitive advantage. Moreover, they are undertaking collaborations with the PV service providers to gain access to medical information and manage PV workflows. For instance, in September 2019, Accenture collaborated with Bayer to implement the company's INTIENT Clinical platform to simplify and speed up its drug development processes, thereby widening its business. The company collaborated with BioCelebrate in 2017 to develop a platform for aggregating and analyzing clinical information for improved drug development efficiency, thus enhancing its R&D capabilities. Such initiatives help companies maintain their market position.
