Global Compounding Pharmacies Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe and the World Health Organization had declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.
COVID-19 has affected the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting production and demand of drugs and vaccines, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets.
The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in increased demand for drugs and decreased manufacturing capacity of commercially available medications, both of which had a favorable effect for the compounding pharmacy sector. For instance, due to a shortage of medications needed to treat patients, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued guidance regarding the compounding of specific medications for hospitalized patients by Federal facilities and State-licensed pharmacies, including health system and hospital pharmacies, during the period of the public health emergency.
Global Compounding Pharmacies Market: Key Developments
Key players in market are focused on geographical expansion through mergers and acquisitions activities. For instance, in May 2019, Fagron which is a Healthcare comapny entered into an agreement to acquire Central de Drogas, S.A. de C.V., a supplier of raw materials to compounding pharmacies and the pharmaceutical industry in Mexico.
In April 2019, Pentec Health, Inc., which provides patient-specific compounded sterile medications and complex in-home clinical services, added California to their list of 43 licensed states.
Global Compounding Pharmacies Market: Restraint
Increasing restrictions on manufacturing of complex formulations is expected to hinder growth of the global compounding pharmacies market. For instance, the U.S. FDA noted that compounding drugs containing Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) acetaminophen in excess of 325mg, may lead to liver injuries in certain patients. Therefore, it restricts compounding pharmacies from manufacturing certain types of drugs that include copies of FDA-approved prescription drugs, even if they appear on FDA’s shortage list and complex dosage forms such as extended release products, transdermal patches, liposomal products, and most biologics.
Moreover, increasing product recall is also expected to hinder growth of market. For instance, in August 2019, the U.S. FDA requested recall of sterile compounded drug products produced by Pacifico National Inc. and dba AmEx Pharmacy.
