Pharmacovigilance (PV) consists of activities relating to the identification, assessment, understanding, and prevention of the adverse effects caused by medicines. It ensures the safety of drugs and increases their efficiency by constantly evaluating their use in real-world settings. It plays an important role in enhancing the public health outcomes and helping regulatory bodies take crucial decisions to mitigate the harm caused by medications. This factor will boost its demand among healthcare providers.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the pharmacovigilance market growth as the demand for robust vaccines and drugs to mitigate COVID-19-positive cases skyrocketed during this period. The need for these services increased considerably during the initial days of the pandemic to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the newly launched vaccines.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. Introduced New Pharmacovigilance Platform for Clinical Research

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. announced that it had unveiled a cutting-edge CorEvitas pharmacovigilance platform for clinical research registries. This new platform will improve CorEvitas clinical research registries that are provided by Thermo Fisher’s PPD clinical research business.

Growing Demand for Contract Outsourcing by Pharma Companies to Boost Market Growth

The market is likely to witness substantial growth as a rising number of pharmaceutical companies are preferring to outsource these services as it provides a wide range of advantages. Pharmaceutical companies can gain access to specialized expertise and vital resources, including safety reporting, specialized management, and regulatory compliance. Moreover, these solutions can help drug makers decrease their costs and overhead expenses, which will further boost their adoption.

However, lack of adequate funding and a severe shortage of skilled professionals that specialize in these services can impede market growth.
