COVID-19 Outbreak to Generate New Growth Opportunities in the Market

The coronavirus pandemic has claimed more than 200,000 lives worldwide and has afflicted around 3.5 million people in a span of a few months. While a vaccine for the infection is still many months away, biomedical organizations are currently focused on developing effective treatment options for COVID-19 to contain the contagion. For example, the World Health Organization (WHO) initiated the ‘Solidarity Trial’ to test the efficacy of various treatment options developed in various countries. The idea is to enroll patients in different countries to assess whether a particular treatment is able to slow the infection’s progress in a body and improve chances of survival. Similarly, the antiviral drug remdesivir, which was proven effective against SARS and MERS, is currently being investigated as a potential treatment option against COVID-19. This augurs well for the pharmacovigilance market growth as PV services and tools play a key role in determining the success or failure of clinical trials of drugs, treatments, and vaccines.

Key Players to Explore Automation of PV Software and Services

Major players in this market are exploring new avenues of innovation by developing automated PV solutions and tools to enable rapid assessment of new medication. Furthermore, established players such as IQVIA and Bayer are launching PV products to strengthen their market position, while new entrants are focusing on expanding their portfolio to build a solid customer base and establish their presence in the market. Lastly, the COVID-19 outbreak has created a vast plethora of opportunities for companies to leverage their capacities and provide professional services to end-users.
