Over the years, there has been a significant change in the process of drug approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Recently, the 21st Century Cures bill was passed in the U.S., which fastened the approval process for the launch of breakthrough drugs and medical devices. These changes in approval processes are expected to drive innovation and are also anticipated to increase demand for preclinical services, thereby contributing to market growth.

With regards to the COVID-19 vaccine itself, preclinical studies have been performed at an exponential speed, indicative of the overwhelming role of CROs. Increasing spending on CRO services is expected to boost the market growth significantly during the forecast period. The growing demand for drugs for COVID-19 is further contributing to the market growth. Different organizations across the globe had made significant funding for developing therapeutics and medical devices for COVID-19. For instance, in April 2021, the WHO in the R&D Bluzupyakint of COVID-19 reported that over USD 1,618.5 million was funded for COVID-19 vaccine research.
