[ 170 + Pages Research Report ] Efficacy Testing Market to surpass USD 594.05 million by 2030 from USD 263.87 million in 2020 in terms of value growing at a CAGR of 10.84% throughout the forecast period, i.e., 2020-30.

Product Overview

Efficacy testing is used for determining the efficiency of the product by analyzing the toxicology test, stability test, and safety test. In other words, it is a set of procedures in product research and development that are performed to test the product’s intended purpose to validate those all-significant claims that appear on the packaging or in advertisements. Pharmaceutical manufacturing, cosmetics and personal care product, consumer product, and medical devices are some major applications of efficacy testing. The product becomes more relevant for market commercialization through safety testing and proof of efficacy. Determining the performance of product development is a primary goal of this kind of study.

Market Highlights

The efficacy Testing Market is expected to project a notable CAGR of 10.84% in 2030.

Efficacy Testing Market to surpass USD 594.05 million by 2030 from USD 263.87 million in 2020 in terms of value growing at a CAGR of 10.84% throughout the forecast period, i.e., 2020-30. Factors such as regulations for pharmaceutical and cosmetic products addressing the safety of the products are expected to drive the growth of the global market for efficacy testing in the coming years. In addition, the efficacy of the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) is the key concern, the market considers the regulation and validation of pharmaceutical products, and numerous methods of preservative efficacy testing (PET) have been advanced over the decade by standards organizations, regulatory agencies, industry organizations and individual firms such as an international conference on harmonization of technical requirements for registration of pharmaceuticals for human use (ICH) and good clinical practice (GCP). The main purpose of these regulatory bodies is to meet the good documentation standard and scientific soundness.

Efficacy Testing Market: Segments

Disinfectant Efficacy Testing segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30

The efficacy Testing Market is segmented by service type into disinfectant efficacy testing (surface test method and suspension test method), and antimicrobial/preservative efficacy testing (traditional test method and rapid test method). With a share of over XX.X percent in 2020, the disinfectant efficacy testing segment is expected to lead the market. Rising awareness of environmental & personal hygiene has resulted in the increasing production and use of surface disinfectants. Also, technological advancements and rising R&D investments by key players to deliver novel technologies in the market are factors driving the growth of the segment.

Antifungal Segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30

The efficacy Testing Market is segmented by application into cosmetics and personal care products, pharmaceutical manufacturing, consumer product, and medical device. The pharmaceutical manufacturing segment accounted for the largest revenue share of XX.X% in 2020 and is projected to maintain its lead over the forecast period. The growth of this segment is majorly attributed to factors such as the stringent regulations for the microbial testing of pharma drugs for regulatory approval and the growing focus on patient safety.

Efficacy Testing Market: Market Dynamics


Rising preference for outsourcing efficacy testing

The rising preference for outsourcing efficacy testing is the major factor driving the growth of the global efficacy testing market. Outsourcing efficacy testing services help pharmaceutical companies reduce risks by avoiding significant investments in maintaining manpower and purchasing analytical equipment in the early stages of development efforts. Growing consideration among pharmaceutical companies for outsourcing testing services to third-party service providers has resulted in the availability of specialist efficacy testing service providers with key capabilities to provide optimal results quickly. Outsourcing as a strategy is expected to gain greater prominence in the coming years. The expected increase in cosmetics production and pharmaceutical drugs will bring with it a growing demand for the associated analytical testing services.

Government Support

With the support of the government, start-ups and small-scale companies get soft loans for pharma industrial R&D projects and a grant-in-aid for clinical trials for developing drugs for neglected diseases. In developing countries, the government is also provided non-fiscal benefits including assistance in research in all systems of medicines. Owing to these factors the efficacy testing market is rising globally.


Time-consuming process

Efficacy testing is a time-consuming process that generally takes a minimum of 28 days to 12 or more weeks for testing which is a key factor hindering the growth of the global market. Preservative and disinfectant efficacy testing is a set of procedures involving considerable time, cost, and scientific expertise to confirm the efficacy, quality, and safety of a drug formulation. The efficacy testing process is also labor-intensive and requires extensive hands-on testing with no potential for automation.
