Contract research organization services or CRO services offer clinical management services to biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical device producers. These organizations can either be large, international full-sized organizations or small, niche specialty groups that provide a device and drug research and development (R&D) services, such as preclinical research, drug discovery, and clinical research. In recent years, CRO services have gained momentum as they are economical and time-efficient and assist in accessing intricate knowledge of regulatory audits and requirements.

Global Contract Research Organization Services Market Trends:

One of the primary factors driving the market is the increasing technological advancements, due to which numerous companies outsource their research and development (R&D) activities to CROs. Additionally, the extensive utilization of CROs in the healthcare industry for medications, research, and drug delivery services is creating a positive market outlook. Other than this, the rising demand for better drugs and healthcare devices, on account of the increasing prevalence of chronic illnesses and growing patient population, is positively influencing the market growth. Furthermore, the rising cost of product development is providing a positive market outlook. Moreover, key players are investing extensively in research and development (R&D) activities to expand their consumer base. For instance, Covance Drug Development, a segment of Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings, bought Envigo RMS, LLC, a key provider of research models and services to improve the global research capabilities of Covance’s non-clinical drug development business.
