Insights into Segmentation Analysis

While the alarming rates of chronic disease prevalence lead to critically growing need for having more effective therapeutics, they have also offered an impetus to the growing preference for specialty drugs and formulations. However, the price points of specialty drugs are expensive, accounting for their unaffordability to a majority of patient population. This according to research will elevate the scope of penetration for pharmacy benefit management service providers. The resultant estimated increase in adoption in specialty pharmacy services is thus expected to remain the highest in near term. Research predicts continued dominance of the specialty pharmacy services segment in the pharmacy benefit management market through the years to come.

Insights into Regional Analysis

The US as of 2021 had nearly 66 pharmacy benefit management companies and consistently mounting expenditure on pharmaceuticals indicates strong growth in the years to come. The per capita GDP is on the rise and the prescription filling is increasing at a notable pace. This will serve as a continuous stream of revenue generation opportunities for pharmacy benefit management service providers. North America is thus at the forefront of revenue generation in the global pharmacy benefit management market. The region currently represents the lion’s share of the overall market revenue majorly on the back of a large patient pool enjoying the benefit of an excellent medical coverage. Moreover, favorable take of the governments in the region, on the overall pharmacy benefit management concept complements the whole scenario. A supportive regulatory structure, and growth in the number of pharmacy benefit managers are also likely to create a strong breeding ground for the market in North America.
