Growing Outsourcing Facilities for Manufacturing and Sales of Products for Compounding Pharmacies Market Growth During 2021-2028:
The compounding pharmacies market is categorized into 503A and 503B based on pharmacy type. 503A compounding pharmacies are not governed as strictly as 503Bs from a manufacturing viewpoint, as they focus on compounding different topical cream products for pain management and modifying the route of administration of other medications. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals face a shortage of required medicines to treat patients. Moreover, 503Bs offer affordable and competitive alternatives to the conventional 503A model, enabling 503Bs to become a part of the hospital’s drug supply chain. According to the Alliance for Pharmacy Compounding (APC), due to the shortage of medicine during the period of COVID-19 pandemic, Compounders’ Shortage Drug Source for Hospitals (CSDSH) was founded to assist hospitals in meeting a need for COVID-19 treatment medications.

Therefore, in April 2020, APC launched a free resource for connecting hospitals with 503B outsourcing facilities, or 503A sterile compounding pharmacies to fulfill the hospital’s needs. The US Congress passed the 2013 Drug Quality and Security Act to give the FDA the authority to regulate compound drug manufacturing. Under this law, outsourcing facilities would allow compounding pharmacies to manufacture commodities in bulk to sell to hospitals and other physician practices without requiring prescriptions from individual patients. Moreover, in January 2020, the US-based QuVa Pharma, Inc., a leader in quality-compliant manufacturing of compounded and ready-to-administer sterile injectable products, started a mission to take the burden off hospitals and health system pharmacies by providing sterile and compounded drugs to pharmacies quickly and cost-effectively. Based on the above factors, the US 503b compounding pharmacies market will likely grow during the forecast period.
