Key drivers of market growth include heightened demand for clinical trials in emerging markets, augmented research and development (R&D) expenditure in the pharmaceutical sector, rising disease prevalence, and a focus on rare diseases and numerous orphan drugs in development pipelines. R&D service providers have evolved from limited clinical trial facilities to conglomerates offering a wide array of services such as study design, preclinical evaluations, clinical trial management, autonomous safety data audits, biostatistical analysis, and more. Contract Research Organizations (CROs) initially focused on preclinical and clinical trial services but have now expanded into project management. In 2021, Novartis AG invested $9.54 billion, up from $8.98 billion in 2020. Similarly, Pfizer Inc. allocated $13.83 billion to R&D in 2021, compared to $9.39 billion in FY 2020. These increased investments by major market players are anticipated to fuel market growth.


In 2023, the global clinical trials market reached US$ 55.20 Billion. It is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.03% from 2024 to 2030


The increasing prevalence of diseases, such as diabetes, drives the demand for more advanced treatments, boosting market growth. For example, according to IDF Atlas 2021, the global diabetic population aged 20-79 was 536.6 million in 2021 and is projected to reach 783.7 million by 2045. Government initiatives also play a significant role. For instance, in January 2022, the European Commission, along with the Heads of Medicines Agencies and the European Medicines Agency, introduced the Accelerating Clinical Trials in the EU (ACT EU) initiative. This initiative aims to enhance Europe’s role in clinical research, promoting the development of safe and effective medicines and integrating clinical research into the European health system, thereby fostering market growth.


Clinical trial data shows an expanding market driven by an increase in phase III trials with large participant pools


Phase 3 trials dominate the global clinical trials market, holding the largest market share. These trials are pivotal in assessing the safety and efficacy of potential treatments or interventions before they are approved for widespread use. Typically involving large participant groups, phase 3 trials provide crucial data on the effectiveness of the treatment compared to existing standards or a placebo. As the final phase before regulatory approval, the outcomes of phase 3 trials significantly influence the decision-making process for healthcare regulatory agencies and stakeholders in determining the adoption and availability of new medical interventions.
