A Slow Economy and High Development Costs to Drive Rise in Pharmaceutical Outsourcing to Contract Research Organizations

FARMINGTON, Conn., Aug. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- It's a well known data point that while the pills a doctor prescribes may cost pennies each to manufacture, the first pill cost many millions of dollars to research, develop, test, and certify. Along the way, many routes are pursued and ultimately dropped when they fail to yield marketable results. One way drug manufacturers can lower their costs and increase their output is to outsource stages of the process to Contract Research Organizations (CROs) that specialize in drug discovery, hit confirmation, and lead optimization.


Global Information Inc, in cooperation with its premium market research publishing partners, is pleased to announce three new market research reports exploring the market for CROs, providing valuable data for market participants – both CROs and pharmaceutical companies themselves – as well as investors, reporters, analysts, and regulators.

Outsourcing in Drug Discovery: The Contract Research Organization (CRO) Market

The drug discovery process is long, arduous and costly, which has driven outsourcing in this field. The first phase is discovery of a lead compound, a molecule that affects biological function by binding to a target protein or nucleic acid in a way that is useful for treatment of disease. The process by which molecules are identified for their therapeutic value involves synthesis and analysis of many derivatives of the original leads. There are several steps in the drug discovery process including hit confirmation, lead generation, lead optimization, and other studies. Drug discovery is a high-cost, risky business because only a fraction of the therapeutic targets selected for study will actually yield products that achieve regulatory approval by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

Since the last edition of Kalorama's Report on the outsourcing of discovery of novel compounds in the pharmaceutical industry, the industry has seen dramatic change. Pharmaceutical companies facing cutbacks in R&D budgets and new demands for novel products need to outsource aspects of their operations. Core functions once kept in-house such as the discovery of potential new drugs are now commonly outsourced. Kalorama Information's Outsourcing in Drug Discovery captures this trend, offering unparalleled coverage of the drug discovery outsourcing market. It presents viewpoints from both customers and suppliers. Segments, size, and growth of the market are presented. The trend toward the increased use of offshore suppliers in China, India, Russia and Eastern Europe is covered in detail. The report also provides profiles of 23 suppliers, representative of those active in this market.
