Outsourcing the clinical trial process to contract research units facilitates evaluation of drugs in multiple locations in parallel, thereby producing data, which originates from a large and varied patient pool. This is considered one of the major advantages of research outsourcing.

Hence, globalization coupled with budget restraints has compelled the drug manufacturers to opt for low cost regions for outsourcing their R&D, clinical trials, and data management services. This in turn is anticipated to boost the global life sciences BPO market during the forecast period.

Stringent Regulatory Approval Processes in Different Countries to Hamper Life Sciences BPO Market

Majority of the clinical trials and other research processes are outsourced to various countries simultaneously. These destination countries have different guidelines and regulatory processes related to drugs, filing, and clinical trials.

The conduction of multi-location trials of a single drug in different procedures in different countries poses a challenge to pharmaceutical companies, as these have to follow a completely different procedure in each country. This is considered one of the major challenges for research outsourcing in different countries. Therefore, a company prefers to restrict outsourcing to one destination country.
