The GMP testing service market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period due to the growing pharmaceutical industry and the increasing need for developing novel devices and drugs. According to the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations, the overall sales of the pharmaceutical industry worldwide were recorded to be approximately USD 852,647 million in 2017. Furthermore, according to the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health’s published study, around 40 medications are recalled per year in the United States and South Korea. This emerges the need for testing the products and the manufacturing process. Furthermore, outsourcing these services enables companies to reduce capital investments. Hence, these factors are expected to play a major role in the GMP testing services market growth. However, the precise requirement of the regulatory framework concerning GMP outsourced activities may hinder the market growth.
Key Market Trends
