High operational costs and discontinuation of products is anticipated to hinder revenue growth of the global sterile injectable drugs market

High operational costs and discontinuation of injectable drugs for cancer treatment are hampering the growth of revenue across the globe. Sterile drugs require complex equipment for manufacturing. Each sterile drug needs proper certification and sterilization before production. This leads to high operating costs and high debt levels. Moreover, the regulatory cost burden is also high due to FDA rules regarding maintaining a high degree of care in the manufacturing, packaging, storage and distribution of sterile injectable drugs.

This factor is hindering revenue growth of the global sterile injectable drugs market. Competition from low-cost manufacturers has led to a discontinuation of many products in the cancer segment. Further, consolidation of the supply chain by large pharmaceutical companies has led to shutting down of their existing manufacturing sites. This particular factor is creating a negative impact on the cancer segment and subsequently the global sterile injectable drugs market.
