Global Pharmacovigilance Market

The global phenylketonuria (PKU) treatment market is growing due to factors such as rising incidence rates of adverse drug reactions, increasing drug consumption, and outsourcing of pharmacovigilance services.

The rising incidences of lifestyle diseases, such as hypertension, cardiac disorders, and diabetes caused by sedentary lifestyles, changing lifestyle patterns, lack of physical activities and poor diets, leads to high consumption of drugs. Increasing consumption of drugs leads to high demand for monitoring of drugs, thus boosting the growth of the pharmacovigilance market.

In addition, increasing adverse drug reactions (ADRs) is also driving the growth of the market during the forecast period. According to the National Centre for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), the number of fatalities due to ADRs has increased twice more than in 2017, which led to rise in hospitalizations. Also, in 2018, there was 10% increase in ADR rate in Brazil per medication introduced during hospitalization. Thus, rising number of ADRs needs continuous pharmacovigilance, hence driving the market growth.

The pharmaceutical companies are investing heavily in the R&D of new drugs to enhance the patients’ health and quality of life. For instance, Astra, a pharmaceutical company has more than 100 permanent, experienced staff in pharmacovigilance within its R&D organization in Sweden and the United Kingdom, and a similar number in local operating companies worldwide. Hence, increasing advancement in developemnt of drugs is expected to drive the growth of the pharmacovigilance market during the forecast period.

However, lack of skilled healthcare professionals and high risk for data security that can be misused by the pharmacovigilance personnel are some of the factors hampering the growth of the market.

By type of reporting, the market is segmented into intensified ADR reporting, spontaneous reporting, cohort event monitoring (CEM), targeted spontaneous reporting, and EHR mining. Among these, the spontaneous reporting segment is expected to hold highest market share over the forecast period, due to extensive usage in detection of new, serious, and rare ADRs and serves as an efficient and inexpensive method. Wide usage of surveillance reports generated through this method by pharmaceutical industries and regulatory authorities is also responsible for the significant market share of spontaneous reporting.

On the other hand, the cohort event monitoring (CEM) is estimated to grow at the fastest growth rate, owing to rising demand in detection of wide range of adverse clinical events. Conjugation of CEM with statistical tools and data mining systems such as longitudinal health records are responsible for the growing popularity of this segment. It serves as an active form of surveillance method which can also be used for new as well as older medicines, driving growth of this segment.
