RALEIGH, N.C – May 26, 2021: Valued at $8.25-8.4 billion in 2020, the global contract sales organization market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7 percent, says Beroe Inc.
The market is showing positive signs of steady growth per the latest contract sales organization market outlook. The U.S., Australia, Europe, and Canada have a very high market maturity in the area of contract sales. The highest contributor is North America. China has done well in this area, with the highest year-on-year growth. Countries like India, Russia, Australia, and Brazil are expected to quickly scale heights in contract sales.

Europe and North America happen to have the leading CSO contract sales organizations. This is driven mostly by the pharmaceutical sector. They outsource a healthy 30 percent of their workforce dedicated to sales in North America and Europe. Most of what the contract sales market stands for is actually driven by the retail stores, which are modernizing themselves and rapidly expanding globally. There is also a growing demand for over-the-counter drugs, which is pushing the systematically wrought modern retail in Africa and Latin America, forcing a CSO growth.
The contract sales organization market size in North America is touted at $3–3.25 billion, which is also growing at 6 percent. The figures for Latin America are $1.15–1.25 billion with a growth of 10 percent. Europe is charting $2–2.25 billion, at a pace of 2.5–3.5 percent. For the Middle East and Africa, the figure stands at $0.75–0.9 billion, growing at 11 percent, For APAC, the market churns $1–1.25 billion, and the growth is figured at approximately 12 percent.
Like every other industry that was hit badly during the pandemic, the contract sales industry was also no different. Here, there was a demand for CSO, and it steadily went up too because these sectors had to cope with the demand brought forward by e-detailing and patient care services. CSOs need to be approached by clients, and they need to put plans in motion because there is a need to adapt to the new normal. There are some industry risk drivers. For one, some restrictions have been put on HCP visits to physicians. Social distancing and abrupt shutdowns saw a lower number of HCPs visiting physicians. Another factor was e-detailing. Now CSOs put more stock on home care for patients who need it, and importance is given to e-detailing.
CSOs run on contracts that are generally long-term, so prices have remained the same in most cases. The labor cost has come down now because many firms had to cut their workforce because of the losses incurred due to COVID-19. The investments started increasing in the technology sector because most industries, like the global scenario, had to depend on technology to pull the burden.
Because of the lockdown, many service providers could not function, so most companies across the world started looking for alternatives. This, though, is now slowly returning to the normal state, paving the way for a positive forecast.
