Q. Which factors will work in favor of the growth of the market and why?

The increasing foreign investments and the rising trade agreements with other nations such as Japan, Canada, the U.S., and numerous nations in Europe will provide impetus to the development of the pharmaceutical products and CMO market. In addition, the improvement in the regulatory scenario and the increasing aging population in Latin America will stimulate the growth of the pharmaceutical products and CMO market here. Furthermore, numerous multinational pharmaceutical companies and drug makers have been investing in LATAM owing to the open business environment in this region, thus positively impacting the development of the market.

On the other hand, the segment of API and ingredients is predicted to rise at the most exponential growth rate and accounted for a share of 60% in 2015. This is owing to the increasing demand for APIs within this region and penetration of top multinational organizations.
