UK Compounding Pharmacies Market size is projected to cross USD 450 million by 2028, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research.

The disease burden is growing at an alarming rate across the region due to the expanding elderly population. The lack of life-saving drugs, such as cancer medicines and emergency medication are increasing as well, thereby augmenting the market trends. Many factors, such as drug shortages leading to errors in prescribing medication, higher chances of occurrence of adverse events resulting in inadequate patient care, patient complaints, and high institutional costs could increase customer preference for compounding pharmacies.

These pharmacies can fill several critical gaps, one of them being replicating drugs that are commercially produced but not readily available across regular pharmacies. The convenience and benefits offered by compounded drugs will favor the regional market outlook. Compounding pharmacies are equipped with advanced technologies and highly trained lab technicians who can create dosages of medication that are commercially unavailable. They can develop hypoallergenic versions of drugs for individuals allergic to a common preservative or additive and formulate liquid doses for patient with difficulty in swallowing pills.

There is a growing patient inclination towards personalized treatments. However, the requirement of high-cost equipment and changing regulatory specifications may hamper the industry progress. Also, there is a lack of awareness and low availability of suitable medical professionals to service a large consumer base.
