Demand for development services to support Phase 1 and Phase 2 clinical trials is driving double-digit growth for CROs and CDMOs. Demand for clinical manufacturing services is actually outstripping industry capacity and leading to delays in getting clinical trial materials needed for studies.

According to the latest PharmSource Trend Report, Follow the Money: The Outlook for Outsourced Spending on Early Development Services, the driver of this early development activity has been the huge level of external funding flowing into emerging bio/pharma companies from venture capitalists and public markets. However, external funding for bio/pharma has always been a “boom or bust” proposition, and the likelihood that funding will be cut drastically always lurks on the horizon. This makes it difficult for CDMOs and CROs to pull the trigger on investments in new capacity.

Follow the Money: The Outlook for Outsourced Spending on Early Development Services examines the link between external funding sources and early drug development, and addresses the outlook for continued funding over the next two years.
