Compounding Pharmacies Market size is set to exceed USD 12.5 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights.
Increasing geriatric population across the globe coupled with rising prevalence of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension and respiratory disorders will serve to be a high impact rendering factor for compounding pharmacies market. According to United Nations, the geriatric population accounted for 962 million in 2017 and is expected to double by 2050. Compounded medicines are increasingly being used in geriatric population as they are often intolerant to the commercially available dosage form and need suitable alternatives.
Several benefits and convenience associated with the compounded medications will impact the industry growth in forthcoming years. Compounding medicines offer reduction in number of doses by combining multi-dose prescriptions into single dose permitting patients to take one pill instead of many. For instance, medication for pediatric patients can be combined to formulate a single medication in order to avoid multiple-drugs administration issues. Furthermore, medication of specific strengths, specific ingredients and administration routes, that are commercially not available can be compounded whenever required.
However, lack of skilled lab technicians and pharmacists, to prepare compounded medications in exact strength and dosage as per the patient’s requirement is a major industry restraint. Moreover, high cost of equipment required for compounding, maintenance of sterility and continuously changing regulatory guidelines will hamper the industry growth.
