Contract Research Organization Services Market to Reach USD 90,926.3 Million at 11.4% CAGR by 2026; Increasing R&D Activities to Augment Growth, says Fortune Business Insights™

Pune, India, March 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global Contract Research Organization Services Market size is slated to hit USD 90,926.3 million by 2026, displaying a CAGR of 11.4% during the forecast period. Rising number of clinical trials across the globe will be the primary force propelling this market in the forthcoming years. Contract research services are provided by organizations that specialize in providing outsourced clinical research services to biotechnology, medical devices, and pharmaceutical companies.

The demand for CRO services is on the rise owing to the increasing number of clinical trials worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the number of clinical trials registered on its International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP) from Europe, Western Pacific, and the Americas were higher than most other regions in 2018. In Western Pacific, for instance, the registered trials were numbered at 14,655, while in Africa they were only 630. Japan and China have seen a meteoric rise in number of trial registrations since 2015, the WHO notes. Thus, steady rise in the number of clinical trials, especially in Asia-Pacific, is touted to be one of the major CRO services market trends in the near future.

Dearth of Professionals in CRO Industry to Hold Back Market Growth

According to Dietmar Eglhofer, CEO of the Austrian CRO services leader VIARES, the CRO industry is unable to reach its full potential due to falling number of clinical research associates (CRAs) in the industry. The situation is worsening as industry leaders are not paying adequate attention to creating and developing new talent, he states.

He further argues that since the existing pool of CRAs is limited, companies often resort to poaching which has spiked the attrition rate in the industry. Industry leaders are searching for ways to overcome this challenge and one of the solutions being implemented in use of technology. However, Eglhofer is sceptical of this move as he believes that advancements in technologies outpace the upskilling rate of CRAs and training them might prove counterproductive. Thus, shortage of CRAs and other trained professionals is emerging as a serious impediment in the CRO services market growth.
