Transparency Market Research, In Its Latest Report Projects that the Market for Organ Preservation Solutions will post a 16.5% CAGR through 2019


Transparency Market Research announced its new report on the Organ Preservation Solutions market that was first valued at USD 0.06 billion in 2012. However, the current market value is predicted to reach USD 204.9 million by 2019 at a CAGR growth rate of 16.5% for the market revenue forecast period 2013 to 2019.

An organ preservation solution is a method of preserving the organs of the body when they are not inside the body system. It is a medically proven technique of letting the organs become vulnerable to the exterior environment outside the human body. Hence, the organs that are removed from the human body are then preserved in specific adjustments using medical solutions. Organ preservation solutions have been playing a key role in increasing the number of organ transplants. They are intended for different purposes such as organ development of biologics and drugs, and organ transplant procedures and research.

Today, the medical industry has a growing demand for organ transplants in forms of different organ types including liver and kidney too. Such aspects are likely to infuse significant demand for organ preservation solutions in the long run.

The global market for organ preservation solutions has been predicted to grow at a CAGR rate of 16.5% during the forecast period 2013 to 2019. Moreover, it is projected to reach market revenue of USD 204.9 Million in the same forecast period. The Organ preservation solutions report studies the deep insights of this market and foresights every major solution for preserving organs. Amongst the proposed solutions, Viaspan and Custodiol are together accounted for over 75% of the total market share. During this market forecast period 2013 to 2019, the Custodiol market is predicted to rise and grow at a CAGR of 17.1%. 

The organ preservation solutions market is primarily driven by the rising incidences of organ failures in the patients due to changes in lifestyles such as fast food consumption, smoking, and alcohol, and increasing number of patients who are eagerly waiting to get an organ transplant done. The market also gets its popularity due to the rise in geriatric population, particularly in the developed regions such as U.K and U.S. All these conditions and locales are likely to propel the growth of this specific market. Another major reason for this growing sector is the rise in per capita healthcare expense and the advancing imbursement setups arranged for the organ transplant procedures in nations such as U.K, U.S., as well as now in India too.

Additionally, there are interesting techniques which are implemented to preserve the organs in the appropriate spaces. These include hypothermic perfusion preservation (HPP), static cold storage (SCS), and many others. Organ preservation solutions is extensively utilized for preserving different organs such as liver and kidney as it is highly capable of preserving a variety of organs unlike solutions such as HBS and Perfadex solution. 

Unlike the SCS that does not allow any continuous contact of the organ with solution, the HPP is a much better and adaptable technique to use. It is a machine perfusion process that maintains a constant supply to the organs needed by the solution whereby, the survival duration of the organs increases accordingly. The HPP market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 19.2% during the forecast period 2013 to 2019.

Earlier, in 2012, the European region had been accounted for the largest share of market revenue and until the present times, it still continues to prove its growth with a rate of 49.96% for 2012 (%). This is due to the presence of a large number of voluntary organ donors in this region. Nevertheless, other countries such as North America (42.23%), Asia-Pacific (5.66%), and RoW (2.15%) help propel the growth of the organ preservation solutions market as well.

As the life sciences industry becomes increasingly competitive while being pressured by regulatory mandates, business process outsourcing (BPO) is being considered as an effective way to improve operational performance.


The market for life sciences BPO is comprised of two distinct entities offering their services to biotech and pharmaceutical companies—Contract Research Organizations and Contract Manufacturing Organizations.

But what are the factors that have given rise to a demand for life science BPO services? The pharma industry is constantly grappling with patent expirations, a pressure to develop low-cost drugs, and the growing uncertainty in economic conditions. Companies in this domain thus need to approach their core operations with singular focus. This is where life science BPO enterprises come into the picture with their support services. Pharma companies outsource various functions and non-core operations to third parties with a view to streamlining their value chain and cutting costs.

These partnerships are usually forged in the form of long-term contracts and partnerships with CMOs and CROs. Through these partnerships, pharma companies share costs right from drug discovery and development to licensing to approvals with the CMOs and/or CROs.

Pharma companies are also experiencing effective outcomes via life science BPOs; the latter leverage their experience, trained professionals, and latest technology to the advantage of the former.

On the other hand, life-science BPOs too have been driven by the pressure to compete and achieve profitability. They try to accomplish this by introducing novel strategies to offer their clients a competitive advantage. According to a market research report published by U.S.-based market research firm Transparency Market Research, the global life sciences BPO market is projected to record a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.5% between 2013 and 2019. 

Experts predict a healthy growth rate thanks to factors such as increased R&D investments by pharmaceutical companies, a spike in the demand for generic drugs, as well as a myriad of block buster drugs nearing the end of their patents. Other factors that have created a favorable environment for life science BPO include stringent regulatory mandates and government pressure to develop affordable drugs.

The Contract Manufacturing Organizations Market

According to the market research report published by Transparency Market Research, the CMO life science services outsourcing currently holds the largest share in the Life Sciences BPO market. The growth in healthcare costs has subsequently caused an increased generic drug demand, which has in turn led to a spike in the demand for the services of pharmaceutical outsourcing enterprises. Moreover, most CMOs have full-fledged R&D centers that employ novel technologies to give their clients an edge.

The market for active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) is the largest within the CMO segment. With mounting regulatory compliance and stringent approval parameters, the outsourcing of manufacturing activities to CMOs has received a boost.

At a time when manufacturers are striving to stay abreast of the latest regulatory mandates and industry breakthroughs, continually investing in facility upgrades might not be possible. This is another factor that can be attributed to the surge in demand for outsourcing partners as manufacturers do not possesses every required technology or expertise in-house. In such scenarios, outsourcing not only gives them access to the latest manufacturing technologies, but also proves to be a cost effective strategy.

The Contract Research Organizations (CRO) Market

Over the past decade, there has been considerable growth in the outsourcing services offered by CROs. Many pharmaceutical companies have been struggling to find a balance between mounting research costs and profitability. This has led many of these firms to turn towards CROs as a feasible option. The vendors operating in the market currently offer a combination of various services such as research, regulatory co-ordination services, data management, website management, medical writing, protocol development and others.

In 2012, the largest segment within this market was drug discovery. A report by Transparency Market Research however projects that between 2013 and 2019, the highest growth will be seen in the clinical data management BPO services at the rate of 17.3%.
Growth Projections

It is estimated that the Life Sciences BPO Market will be worth USD 596 billion worldwide by 2019, according to the Transparency Market Research report. And, while North America held the largest share in this market in 2012 with a worth of USD 28.4 billion, future growth is expected to be the highest in the Asia Pacific region with an approximate growth rate of 21.2% driven by various factors such as low cost of labor, availability of a talent pool, a large patient population, and comparatively favorable regulatory policies.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is one of the most common sexual problems of men and the susceptibility to this condition increases with aging. The most likely causes of ED are effects of certain medications (anti-depressants and nicotine), chronic diseases (cardiovascular and diabetes), kidney failure, stressful life style and aging. Poor health, obesity, smoking and poor dietary habits may also cause ED. Hesitation in discussing this condition with physicians has resulted in a large pool of untreated patients. There is no gold standard test to identify ED and is usually diagnosed by going through medical history of the patient, a few physical tests and blood tests. Some blood tests are carried out to exclude underlying causes such as diabetes, high cholesterol level and cardiovascular diseases.


The first line therapy for the treatment of ED is use of phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors (PDE-5) such as sidenafil, tadalafil and vardenafil. These drugs act by augmenting the effect of nitric oxide that relaxes penile muscles and ensures proper blood flow and allows erection. The use of these drugs is contraindicated when a patient is already taking nitrate drugs, anticoagulants and if he is suffering from cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Viagra (Pfizer), Cialis (Eli Lilly) and Levitra (Bayer) are the leading brand names in this segment.

The market for erectile dysfunction drugs is growing worldwide due to the rapidly increasing prevalence of ED and is predicted to be doubled by the end of 2025. At present, North America represents the largest market for these drugs due to the existence of large number of population affected with ED and high awareness about healthcare and wellbeing. The Urology Care Foundation, an official foundation of the American Urological Association, estimates that at present an average of 15 to 30 million people are suffering from ED across the country with varying levels of distress. The Massachussetts Male Ageing Study suggests that more than 50% of men aged over 40 years of age experience some degree of ED. 

Asia-Pacific represents a potential market for erectile dysfunction drugs due to growing aging population. One of the other factors expected to drive the market in Asia-Pacific region is increasing awareness about the disease and improvement in healthcare infrastructure.

Some of the prominent players operating in this market space are Pfizer, Inc., Eli Lilly, Bayer Healthcare, Johnson & Johnson, GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi, Astellas Pharma, Inc. and Merck & Co.

Dyslipidemia is a lipoprotein metabolism disorder characterized by abnormal amount of lipoprotein (LDL and HDL) concentrations in blood. It is usually caused by genetic factors, secondary factors or a combination of both kinds of factors. High density lipoproteins (HDL) are also known as good cholesterol and higher levels of these help reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Higher levels of low density lipoproteins (LDL) or bad cholesterol are associated with the risk of heart attacks and strokes. 


The abnormal levels of cholesterol and triglycerides are capable of producing three forms of dyslipidemia namely, hypertriglyceridemia, hypercholesterolemia and a combination of both. Dyslipidemia is one of the major causes for the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases. Appropriate drug therapy against dyslipidemia can be selected based on the detection of varying concentrations of specific lipoproteins in the blood. The treatment approach adopted by physicians starts with non-drug interventions, which includes lifestyle modifications and exercise followed by pharmacotherapy which includes the use of lipid lowering drugs. 

The seven major classes of lipid lowering drugs used in the treatment of dyslipidemia are bile-acid sequestrants, nicotinic acid, HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins), cholesterol modulators, fibric acid derivatives, cholesterol absorption inhibitors and combination products. Statins are the most widely used drugs to treat dyslipidemia. The dyslipidemia market can be segmented by the various drug classes mentioned above and by geography.  

The major factors influencing the growth of this market are sedentary lifestyle, higher inclination towards junk food, increasing incidence of cardiovascular diseases across the globe and associated risks. Patent expirations and high genericization may mask the growth of this market. With the patent expiration of Pfizer’s Lipitor, Merck’s Zocor and Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Pravachol, the dyslipidemia market is expected to experience a decline in sales of branded formulations and in turn decline in overall growth of this market. Some of the major players in this market are Pfizer, Inc., Merck & Co, Inc., Bristol-Myers Squibb, Novartis AG, AstraZeneca PLC and Abbott Laboratories.

Bioterrorism refers to form of terrorism that involves intentional dissemination or release of biological agents. The agents can be viruses, bacteria or toxins and can also be referred to as germ warfare. Biological agents are mainly found in nature but sometimes they can be modified by the terrorist as to make agents more toxic. Biological agents are used by the terrorists to attain their social or political goals and are used for killing or injuring people, plants and animals. Biological weapons are dangerous as some of these agents are transmitted from one person to another and infection might take hours or days to become noticeable.

Bioterrorism is an invaluable tool as biological agents are relatively inexpensive and can cause widespread fear beyond the actual damage they can cause. They are mainly used by the terrorists to create mass panic and disruption of state or economy. The global market for bioterrorism is segmented on the type of different biological agents currently being used and their mode of delivery.  Agents such as anthrax, tularemia, small pox, bubonic plague, botulinum toxin and viral hemorrhagic fevers pose a high threat to national security. 

Another category involves toxins such as typhus, glanders, Q fever, viral encephalitis and others poses moderate threat and involves low mortality. Last category involves emerging toxins that are engineered for mass dissemination, high mortality rate and ability to cause major health impact. Hantavirus, Nipah Virus, SARS, HIV/AIDS and H1N1 virus falls under this above mentioned category. The mode of delivery of these biological agents can be via aerosol dissemination, water contamination, food contamination, insect vectors and others.

However, federal government supports many programs and researches but it does not provide any direct protection against bioterrorists attacks for many important buildings. These buildings include theaters, shopping centers, large buildings and others. In the United States virtually all these buildings remain susceptible to bioterrorist attack. Key protection to these facilities involves the presence of warning systems which provide immediate response to such attacks.

Some of the major players that provide and bioterrorism defense products are Acambis Plc, Evogen, Inc., Human Genome Sciences, ICX Technologies, Inc., PharmAthene, Inc. and others.
