A compounding Pharmacy is referred to a pharmacy run by a licensed pharmacist, licensed physician, or an individual under the guidance of a licensed pharmacist. It is slightly dissimilar from a traditional pharmacy. However, the major role of a compounding pharmacy is to develop drugs that a physician prescribes as per the patient-specific requirement. It is making a custom formulation of a medication that suits a patient's unique requirement, which cannot be fulfilled with commercially available products. The rising elderly population and increasing life expectancy have fostered the adoption rate of customized medicines worldwide. The market for Compounding Pharmacies is anticipated to boom, owing to the increasing aging baby boomers population in requirement of personalized medications due to the rising incidents of chronic diseases among this population. Moreover, the rising patent expiries are one of the key growth propellant factors in the compounding pharmacy market.

The Compounding Pharmacy Market is anticipated to grow at the rate of 6.2% CAGR by 2026.

In the compounding pharmacies market based on therapeutic areas, hormone replacement therapy achieves popularity in balancing hormones in the body. The upsurge in the number of people has exhibited a positive inclination towards hormone replacement therapy. The demand for compounded drugs is due to their rising application in the treatment, such as to treat several conditions, specifically in women, including irregular menstrual cycle, pre-menstrual syndrome, weight gain, and other conditions.

As per the compound types, the pharmaceutical dosage alteration segment has the largest share in the compounding pharmacies market. The senior population experiencing pain because of chronic diseases generally requires compounded drugs customized based on the patient’s requirement. Other allopathic drugs cause adverse reactions in old individuals suffering from chronic diseases that surge the compounded drugs' demand.

Based on the products, the oral segment held a substantial share in the compounding pharmacies market due to the growing demand from patients for oral medications because of ease of administration and transportation.

Geographically, the North American region is anticipated for the large share of the market and is likely to continue its domination during the forecasted period due to the senior population's growth, scarcity of drugs, and high healthcare awareness among the public. Moreover, the increasing government initiatives favor the compounding pharmacies and the existence of advanced healthcare infrastructure facilities in this region.

The world is facing a rapid shortage of drugs, which has caused problems for health care facilities, clinicians, patients, and federal regulators. Problems in production, acquisition of raw materials, regulatory issues and business arrangements, and interruptions in the supply chain are the key factors causing drug shortage. Healthcare professionals, mainly pharmacists and drug manufacturers, are constantly working on managing the shortage of drugs. Health care professionals have started formulating solutions to control drug shortages. Hence, compounding pharmacies are considered a viable source of drugs that are in short supply.
