Pharmaceutical Analytical Testing Outsourcing Industry Growth, Trends And Forecast Till 2023 By Marketresearchfuture.Com

Market scenario

Increasing research and development investments is the key factor driving the pharmaceutical analytical testing outsourcing market. For instance, in 2018, Almac Group announced that it will invest USD 493,000 in additional nuclear magnetic resonance instrumentation at its headquarters in Craigavon, UK.

The Global Pharmaceutical Analytical Testing Outsourcing Market is slated to expand at a considerable rate and at a healthy 7.45% CAGR over the predicted years (2018-2023). Analytical testing plays a key role in the field of pharmaceutical development right from the initial stages of commercialization of the therapy or drug. It is a vital phase in drug manufacturing that includes identification, determination as well as purification of a single compound and/or mixture of compounds. This process also includes determining the chemical compounds’ structure along with helping in the characterization and synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs).

Various other factors such as intense competition among pharmaceutical companies, increasing awareness about product quality, and safety and changing regulations for in vivo and in vitro tests are also expected to propel the growth of the market.

However, lack of awareness, and quality approvals and regulatory audits conducted in outsourcing laboratories can hinder the market growth over the forecast period.
