Pharmacovigilance Market: Introduction

According to the report, the global pharmacovigilance market was valued at US$ 6.1 Bn in 2020 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 8.8% from 2021 to 2028. Pharmacovigilance activities are defined as science used for detection, assessment, understanding, and prevention of adverse effects of drugs and vaccines. Drugs and vaccines go through rigorous testing in the clinical trials to check their safety and efficacy before authorization and recommendation to patients.

Intensifying regulatory expectations, tougher inspection system, and instant need of patient reporting boost the adoption rate of pharmacovigilance among pharmaceutical companies. Rise in prevalence of acute and chronic diseases has led to a surge in the incidence of drug consumption, thereby increasing the number of adverse drug events and drug toxicity cases.

Rise in Adoption of Outsourcing Services to Drive Market

Outsourcing has been observed to be a growing trend in the pharmaceutical industry, particularly in the field of pharmacovigilance. Healthcare companies are using various methods to reduce cost and operational expenses by gradually shifting from the fully integrated pharmaceutical company (FIPCO) model to a model, wherein costs are shared through collaborations with outsourcing service providers. Outsourcing of pharmacovigilance services help biopharmaceutical companies to save substantial costs, improve efficiency, and attain better outcomes in the short- as well as the long-term.

Phase IV or Post Marketing Surveillance Segment to Dominate Market

In terms of phase of drug development, the global pharmacovigilance market has been classified into preclinical studies, phase I, phase II, phase III, and phase IV or post marketing surveillance. The phase IV or post marketing surveillance segment dominated the global pharmacovigilance market in 2020 and the trend is projected to continue during the forecast period.

Most industry experts have accepted the drug evaluation process for safety as a prime requirement in post-marketing (approval) phase. Surge in public safety concerns and increase in competition in the drug market are likely to drive the segment over the next few years.

Spontaneous Reporting Segment Accounted for Largest Market Share

Based on type of method, the global pharmacovigilance market has been categorized into spontaneous reporting, intensified ADR reporting, targeted spontaneous reporting, cohort event monitoring, and EHR mining. The spontaneous reporting segment dominated the global pharmacovigilance market, accounting for the largest market share in 2020. Spontaneous adverse drug reporting is the most crucial process of post-marketing surveillance of medicines and is essential for the maintenance of drug safety data. Spontaneous reporting detects the signals of the newly occurred or serious adverse drug reactions and is widely preferred over other methods.

The cohort event-monitoring segment is expected to expand at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, due to its preference in the observation of an innovative drug in routine clinical practice during early post-marketing surveillance.
