Global compounding pharmacy industry overview

The increase in healthcare and pharmaceutical spending is a major factor driving the market’s growth. Healthcare spending per capita increased by 7.25% between 2014 and 2016. This is a trend, which is expected to continue during the forecast period. People are spending more on healthcare. Thus, pharmaceutical spending, as a proportion of healthcare spending is also gradually increasing. This indicated the increasing demand for medications. Pharmacy visits are increasing significantly because of the high prevalence of chronic diseases. Owing to the increase in the number of prescriptions, people with allergies to some ingredients, people who are sensitive and need mild doses, and people who need medicines in different forms such as liquids prefer compounded drugs. This is driving the growth of the global compounding pharmacy market. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of nearly 6% during the forecast period.

The increasing prevalence of hormonal imbalance is identified as one of the key emerging trends in the global compounding pharmacy market. Hormonal imbalance is a genetic condition, which can be passed on from one generation to another. The prevalence of hormonal imbalance is mainly because of the growth in geriatric population, unhealthy eating habits of people, consumption of medications, stress, and increasing prevalence of thyroid, diabetes, and tumors. Hormonal imbalance causes physical and mental issues. Hormonal imbalance can be caused by the lack or surplus of iodine levels in the body. It may also occur because of stress and unhealthy eating habits of people. When left untreated, the hormonal imbalance could also cause cancer. General medicines used to treat hormonal imbalance might not be effective because of the differences in the imbalance of hormones from one person to another. Hormone replacement therapy is a therapeutic area of pharmaceutical compounding. In hormonal therapy, the chemical composition of a person's hormones is tested, and the same hormones are produced for the specific person. Depending on each person's imbalance or deficiency of each type of hormone, identical hormones in the required quantity are administered in the form of pills, capsules, injections, suppositories, or creams. Thus the high prevalence of hormonal imbalance is expected to increase the need for pharmaceutical compounding.
