Specialty CROs Market Overview

The global specialty CROs market is expected to rise from $1.2 billion to $2.7 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 8.6%. The biopharmaceutical industry has been witnessing a significant paradigm shift in R&D outsourcing over the last few years. Specialty CROs have emerged as credible players in the market to overcome the shortcomings of full service / traditional CROs. Often, these full service providers offer a wider portfolio of services but fail to align their efforts to meet the requirements of sponsors, primarily the smaller biotech organisations / start-ups. Specialty CROs, on the other hand, specialize in niche areas catering to either specific clinical / preclinical services or providing services in a particular disease area. Oncology, cardiovascular, metabolic disorders and CNS are some of the popular therapeutic areas that have witnessed a rise in the number of specialty CROs. Typically outsourced services include data management, site monitoring and project management but nowadays core services such as pharmacovigilance, target evaluation, formulation development, cell line development, toxicology studies and medical imaging are also being outsourced to these CROs. Specialty CROs are increasingly adopting the strategic CRO model to expand their services and geographical presence in an effort to broaden the scope of serving the global biopharmaceutical industry.

Despite the widening array of services offered by these CROs, they have found it challenging to gain a higher share in the market, which is currently dominated by larger and more well-established players. Considering that a major proportion of revenues for large CROs is generated by big pharma companies, gaps exist when it comes to providing services to smaller pharma / biotech companies. This provides an opportunity to specialty CROs to offer improved, customized and relatively economical services to newer / smaller clients in the sector.

As the demand of novel therapies for various therapeutic areas is expected to rise steadily, we are optimistic about the future of these smaller research firms, which have driven an innovative approach to drug research and development. There are a number of upcoming opportunities that can enrich the service portfolio of speciality CROs gradually strengthening their presence in an otherwise consolidated market.
