Key Market Trends

Stability Testing Segment is Expected to Exhibit a Significant Market Growth Over the Forecast Period

Statbility testing is done to evaluate the capability of the drug to retain it’s properties throughout it’s shelf-life. The stability testing is done on the basis of five parameters : Chemical, physical, microbiological, therapeutic and toxicity. The degredation with respect to any of these parameters can lead to health hazards. According to the study published by Journal of Industrial Microbiology & Biotechnology, almost 300 biopharmaceuticals have been patented in the last three decaded. Furthermore, according to the World Health Organization, in 2019, the number of registered trials were around 92% in South East Asia and around 66% in the Eastern Mediterranean region. Hence, these factors are expected to impact positively on the market growth in this segment.
