Unprecedented Downsizing of Internal Discovery of Big Pharmaceuticals, Patent Expiration, & Shift Towards Biologics Surges Externalization and Outsourcing Activities

Over the last two decades, the Pharmaceutical industry has seen a radical change. The unprecedented downsizing of the internal discovery of big pharmaceuticals, patent expiration, and shift towards biologics have seen a surge in the externalization and outsourcing activities.

As the industry is looking for new sources of discovery and innovation with limited resources, there is a growing preference to move towards externalization and willingness to embrace the concept of outsourcing.

Around 25 - 35% of the global pharmaceutical companies R&D spending goes into drug discovery outsourcing. Almost all the major Pharmaceutical companies are considering outsourcing as a core strategy to fill their discovery pipelines. Contract Research Organisation (CRO) that have precise capabilities through greater flexibility are the preferred ones. Now-a-days, the big pharma relies more on CRO’s for drug discovery capabilities to stock up their pipelines.

The global pharmaceutical outsourcing market (Discovery, Preclinical & Clinical Services) is estimated to be $50 - 70 billion in 2020, which accounts to 25 - 40% of the overall pharma R&D spending. Out of $50 - 70 billion, 30 - 40% accounts for discovery-based service i.e. $20 - 30 billion in 2020. Pre clinical and Clinical related services accounts to 10 - 20% and 40 - 60% respectively.
