Industry Outlook 

Outsourcing of development and manufacturing activities is critically growing among several pharmaceutical manufacturers. This enables the companies to focus on their core competencies. Furthermore, research and development activities take over a significant amount of labor and expenses for many pharmaceutical manufacturers, the infrastructure cost for the same is also significantly high. Hence, the offered economic efficiency from outsourcing of drug development activities boos the demand for bioanalytical testing services. 

Several blockbuster drugs from the last decades are going off patent. This will drive investments from companies for new molecule development. However, many of the major chronic disease areas are already crowded leaving a minimal scope for making a mark. This phenomenon has also led several companies to opt for initiating research in niche areas of rare diseases and palliative care. In order to ensure rapid commercialization of their products in the increasingly competitive pharmaceuticals market, more and more pharma companies are diverting their R&D activities to CROs, therefore driving the market growth. Additional drivers of this market include growing complexity of single molecule entities, growing complexity of molecules and so on. This requires the pharmaceutical developers to keep abreast with latest technologies and developments, which can be conveniently coped with opting for bioanalytical testing services. 

Market Synopsis

Bioanalytical Testing Services Market

Services for large molecules to pick demand during the forecast period

Based on the molecule types, small molecule segment captures the larger share of the global bioanalytical testing services market. Small molecules occupy a significant share of the overall generic and branded drugs, and with the upcoming patent expiries of many of such entities, manufacturers will increasingly seek bioanalytical tests for further innovation in these drugs and further pipeline. Conversely, large molecule segment shall be witnessing rapid growth during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is attributed to the large biologics and amino acid based drugs pipeline. Bioanalytical testing of large molecules also require significant skills and technical expertise, which can be efficiently met by outsourcing to bioanalytical test service providers.

Bioanalytical Testing Services Market

Bioavailability and bioequivalence tests to gather prominent market share

ADME testing, pharmacodynamics (PD) testing, pharmacokinetics (PK) testing, bioavailability testing, and bioequivalence testing are some of the key test types gathering the largest revenue share in the market for bioanalytical testing services. Among these bioequivalence and bioavailability testing occupy the larger revenue share in the global market, as these services have the highest registration. Other tests for pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics shall also pick considerable pace during the forecast period. 

Bioanalytical Testing Services Market

North America and Asia Pacific to determine the global market trends

At present, North America is the most prominent regional market for bioanalytical testing services. The dominance of North America is attributed to domicile of several large pharmaceutical manufacturers, large product pipeline in the USFDA, and rapid adoption of advanced analytical technologies in the region. North America is also characterized with the growing interest of drugs developers and manufacturers to reduce their research and manufacturing costs, and focus on core competencies, this is driving their interest in CDMO services. On the other hand, Asia Pacific shall be witnessing rapid growth in terms of swift influx of research outsourcing in the region. India and China are the most prominent hubs for CRO activities in Asia Pacific. Availability of services at low costs, and presence of higher skills drive the swift growth of Asia Pacific market.
