The latest report by IMARC, titled “Regulatory Affairs Outsourcing Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, finds that the global regulatory affairs market size reached US$ 6.43 Billion in 2021. Regulatory affairs outsourcing refers to the hiring process of third-party services by private organizations and government bodies in order to ensure public health and safety. These services include managing regulatory requirements for innovator drugs, generic drugs, biosimilars, biologics, and others. Outsourcing organizations ensure the safety and efficacy of the products while ensuring they are safe for consumption. These services are used for regulatory writing and publishing, clinical trial and patent application, legal representation, and product registration. In recent years, regulatory affairs outsourcing has gained momentum due to its adoption in pharmaceutical companies for achieving speedy government approvals.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of the associated industries. These observations will be further integrated into the report.

Global Regulatory Affairs Outsourcing Market Trends:

One of the primary factors driving the market is the exponential growth in the biotechnological and pharmaceutical industries. Additionally, the increasing focus of pharmaceutical industries on expanding their supplies and operations in developing economies is creating a positive market outlook.
