North America Dominates the Global Platelet Rich Plasma & Stem Cell Alopecia Treatment Market owing to a Rise in Technological Advancements and Prevalence of Alopecia
North America dominates the global platelet rich plasma & stem cell alopecia treatment market, owing to technological advancements, investments in research & development, and developed health care infrastructure. As per research, in 2015, 21% of women suffered from alopecia in the U.S, which supports the fact that alopecia has a higher prevalence in the country. Moreover, development of innovative products and increase in demand for products among the population in the region are contributing factors for the dominance of North America in the platelet rich plasma & stem cell alopecia treatment market.
Expansion in the Contract Research Industry Offers Significant Opportunities for Companies to Invest in Clinical Trials for Alopecia Treatment
Small and large biopharmaceutical companies have become increasingly reliant on contract research organizations (CRO) and other clinical services specialists to provide research services for their R&D operations. There are numerous government-funded medical and pharmaceutical institutions, with state-of the-art facilities, that can serve as ideal centers for multicentered clinical trials. Companies are expanding their footprints in developing countries, mainly in Asia Pacific. R&D costs in India are substantially lower as compared to those in developed countries. It is possible to conduct both new drug discovery research and novel drug delivery system programs at competitive rates. India offers cost efficiency, as the cost of conducting a trial in the country is 50% to 75% lower compared to that in the U.S. or the European Union.
