Key Takeaways from the Study:

  • Comparator drug sourcing refers to the procurement of existing drugs for comparing them with newly developed drugs during clinical trials. In the process, instead of comparing the new drug with placebo medications in the trial, its compatibility is actually tested against the similar available drugs in the market.
  • The investment in comparator drugs sourcing is growing by pharmaceutical firms, as there is a need to justify new drugs effectivity and costs against the existing drugs.
  • For a pharma company to claim its drug’s superiority in treating certain diseases, the trial requires the inclusion of an active comparator drug. The drug manufacturer is required to select comparator drugs against their new drug, and source and supply to every trial site in an uninterrupted manner.
  • The increasing need to justify the effectiveness and price of newly developed drugs to the stakeholders such as insurance companies, government regulators, and pharmacies is driving the need for comparator drug sourcing across global pharmaceutical research and development establishments.
  • The increasing prevalence of chronic disease diseases including cancer, cardiac, and neurological disorders is driving the development of new drugs, which is fueling the market of comparator drug sourcing, for comparative analysis.
  • The development of drugs against bacterial infection is likely to create opportunities for the market. The COVID-19 pandemic propelled the need for developing effective drugs against various bacterial infections, which has opened opportunities to develop superior drugs.
