Global Real-World Evidence Solution Market All Set to Flourish: Expected to Reach worth USD 4,415.3 Million in 2027

Published | April 2021

According to a study conducted recently by the strategic consulting and market research firm, BlueWeave Consulting, the global real-world evidence (RWE) solution market has reached USD 1.487.1 million by 2020 and is expected to reach USD 4,415.3 million by 2027, with a healthy CAGR of 17.1% during 2021-27 (forecast period). The growth is due to the shift from volume to value-based care, aging population and prevalence of chronic diseases and delays in drug development, and the subsequent increase in development costs. Besides, the real-world data sets are widely adopted by end-users for RWE for various applications such as drug development & approvals, market access & reimbursement/coverage decisions, clinical decision-making, and medical device development & approvals, among others, that helps in the growth of the overall market.

 

Regardless of challenges, if RWE research performed correctly can generate significant value throughout the product life cycle. To be successful, a company must first develop a strategy based on a deep understanding of which treatment areas and products to be prioritized, and must define specific RWE applications that would complement routine clinical research. With a strategy, an organization can adopt a method that suits its purpose. The market is witnessing major developments wherein pharmaceutical companies and health authorities are accelerating and strengthening their ongoing efforts to define and implement RWE standards.
