Growth Factors

 The market growth can be attributed to factors such as the increasing outsourcing services by pharmaceutical companies, rising R&D investments, and stringent regulations for conducting clinical studies. The FDA’s role in the development of a novel drug begins when the drug’s sponsor decides to test the new molecule’s diagnostic or therapeutic potential in humans after screening it for pharmacological activity and acute toxicity potential in animals. The molecule then changes its legal position under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, becoming a new drug subject to the drug regulatory system’s specific requirements.

Report Highlights

The small molecule segment held the largest share of 90.0% in 2020 and is likely to remain dominant over the forecast period. This is largely due to the increasing number of small molecules in development. Small molecules constitute more than 100% of the drugs currently in the market.

The large molecule segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR of 10.8% throughout the forecast period. This is largely due to pharmaceutical and biotech companies investing more in the discovery and development of large molecule therapeutic proteins due to their specificity, which allows for the targeting of previously difficult-to-address conditions in disease states, such as oncology, neurology, and metabolic disease.

The contract development segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 95.5% in 2020. The segment is also projected to expand at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. The contract development offers several benefits over in-house development of drugs, such as access to industry experts, less time to market, cost-effectiveness, and more focus on core competencies.

The pharmaceutical companies segment led the market and accounted for 79.4% in 2020. This can be attributed to the increasing investments in the pharmaceutical sector. There are roughly 7,000 different rare diseases that impact 350 million people worldwide, and more research is being done than ever before.

The biotech companies segment is anticipated to register a lucrative growth rate of 10.0% over the forecast period. The basic research is carried out both independently and in collaboration with researchers and others from various parts of the biomedical research ecosystem, such as disease foundations and patient organizations, venture capital, and pre-competitive consortia.

North America held the largest share of 51.1% in 2020. This can be attributed to the increased R&D investments by life sciences and pharmaceutical companies, which are expected to boost the demand for contract manufacturing in the region. In the U.S, it takes an investigational drug an average of 12 years to get from the lab to the medicine cabinet.
