The growth of the medical affairs outsourcing market is mainly attributed to factors such as increasing number of clinical trials worldwide and rising adoption of outsourcing activities coupled with increasing R&D expenditures. However, the increasing costs of drug development and clinical trials hinder the market growth.

Growing healthcare sector in developing regions, especially in Asia Pacific, creates considerable business expansion opportunities for the medical affairs outsourcing market players. The huge population suffering from various medical conditions in these countries is generating demand for more clinical trials. The number of clinical trials conducted in Asia Pacific is greater than those conducted in the US or Europe. The preference for conducting clinical trials in Asia Pacific is increasing due to low operational costs, large patient recruitment potential, wide CRO presence, favorable regulatory environment, and better clinical trials capacity and quality. Moreover, the clinical trials in Asia cost ~30–40% lower than the US and the EU as the doctor visits and medical treatments and procedures are less pricey in Asian countries. Thus, such favorable conditions for conducting clinical trials in Asian countries is expected to boost the demand for outsourcing medical affairs from pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies in the coming years.

CRO service industry is highly fragmented with the presence of numerous small and medium-sized limited-service providers, and a small number of large, full-service, global CROs. Smaller CROs face a few barriers while entering into the global market, whereas the full-service CROs with global capabilities needs to build the necessary infrastructure; moreover, they should be capable of simultaneously managing multiple complex testing services across different countries and regions, establishing the required relationships with strategic partners, developing relevant therapeutic expertise to serve the needs of their customers. Since the past few years, consolidation is emerging as a prominent trend across the CRO industry, which is followed by the majority of the prime players to strengthen their service offerings and garner the major market share in the global CRO market. For instance, Parexel International Corp. acquired The Medical Affairs Company in 2017. This has led to the generation of larger CROs benefiting pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies through the wide geographic diversification, extensive therapeutic and development expertise, and enormous capital and technical resources to manage the demanding drug development programs, medical device designing and research, and regulatory affairs.

Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers & Associations, World Health Organization (WHO), Federal Ministry for Economic affairs and Energy, European Federation of pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA), and National Institute for Health Research (NHS) are among the major secondary sources referred to while preparing the report on the medical affairs outsourcing market.
