Altogether, these trends are expected to boost the life sciences outsourcing market over the forecast period.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, a significant number of outsourcing providers expanded their existing manufacturing and research facilities to meet the growing demand for COVID-19 vaccines and diagnostics. Even post-pandemic, CDMOs are practicing similar strategies to support the future demand for pharmaceuticals.

The adoption of such strategies by the market players is expected to be profitable for the market. There has been a rising demand to reduce the cost of manufacturing and development of drugs and medical devices.

Outsourcing manufacturing, research, and marketing services provide pharmaceutical and medical device companies with cost- and time-saving benefits. This is expected to have a positive impact on the market. Over the years, mergers and acquisition deals between CROs and CDMOs have increased. The rising demand for clinical services and the growing need for specialized service providers to improve the focus on their core competencies are some of the factors that are expected to drive the incidence of M&A deals.
