Asia Pacific Drug Development Market Growth & Trends

The Asia Pacific drug development market is expected to reach USD 62.46 billion by 2026 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 6.54%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Challenges pertaining to the escalating research costs and shrinking revenue faced by major pharma companies have led to the significant expansion of Asian drug development sector.
