With the growing complexity of R&D trends, the demand for service providers has never been as great. The growth of CRO services indicates that such complex demands are being efficiently met by CROs. Recently, pharma companies have been increasingly focusing on reducing operational costs and reducing development timelines while maintaining quality.

Constraints in terms of payer pricing, R&D budget, and high costs of clinical development are urging manufacturers to consolidate disease areas for drug development. Such factors facilitate an increase in CRO business due to the potential flexibility offered by service providers.

CROs are continuously aligning their service offerings for pharmaceutical manufacturers with these prime trends. Among the considered CRO services, late-stage clinical trials hold the strongest market position and are expected to retain their significance through the forecast period.

The tendency to outsource clinical trial activities only after retaining the core early trials in-house and the convenience of large-scale recruiting through outsourcing are the key factors supporting this assessment.

At present, North America and Europe are the two largest regional markets for CRO services. These areas are home to a number of large, midsized, and small-sized (niche) CROs that provide a variety of service packages to pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturers. Outsourcing of early-stage CRO services is also rapidly picking up pace in North America and Europe when compared with other regions.

Urgent cost containment and focusing on core competencies, along with the growing need for a skilled workforce and the need to streamline operational processes, are the key market drivers in these regions.

On the other hand, Asia Pacific is the fastest-growing market for CRO activities. The availability of a huge recruiting-eligible patient pool in the region, an offering of competitive service pricing, and the emergence of several large pharma companies in the region make Asia-Pacific a significantly lucrative hub for CRO activities. China and Japan are anticipated to be the most prominent country-level markets for CRO services during the forecast period.
