Medication Management Market Insights:

Medication Management Market was valued at USD 2.4 Billion in 2021, registering a CAGR of 11.5% during the forecast period (2022-2030), the market is projected to be worth USD 6.5 Billion by 2030.  Medication management is a strategic technique that enhances inventory management, distribution of medicines, and prevention of Adverse Drug Events (ADE). Effective medication management helps in reducing the illness and death rates due to medical errors, especially in the aged population, by monitoring and tracking multiple prescriptions. For instance, the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists reported that the average annual prescriptions of individuals aged between 65 to 69 years old are nearly 14 prescriptions and the same for individuals aged between 80 to 84 years old are 18 prescriptions. Thus, it is essential to manage multiple medicine consumption or polypharmacy to decrease the risks of drug interactions caused by medicine errors.


In the context of medication errors, a report published by World Health Organization in 2017 stated that global medication errors cost USD 42 billion annually.  Medication errors are also anticipated to increase the risks associated with adverse drug events in the population which boosts the need of employing a medication management system. Thus, the increased need for improvements in the medication management system is expected to reduce human error with medication delivery in healthcare facilities. Based on region, North America is expected to contribute the largest share to the growth of the medication management market owing to the rising adoption of technology in healthcare, increased number of prescriptions per person, and large presence of leading market players.

Medication Management Market Dynamics:

Medication management is a strategically-designed technology that helps to improve the therapeutic outcome of patients by optimizing drug therapy. The benefits of medicine management adoption in healthcare facilities are reduction of medication errors and the overall healthcare cost, efficient procurement of medicines, and standardization of workflow.


The increased workload and difficulties in clinical operations faced by healthcare professionals and rising costs of medical facilities are expected to increase the demand for automated solutions such as medication management. Additionally, the surge in the numbers of the aged population, increased technological advancement in healthcare facilities, and rising incidences of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, type-2 diabetes, cancer, and others are expected to drive the medication management market growth during the forecast period.


The lack of awareness and availability of automated solutions such as medication management systems especially in developing countries such as Mexico, India, and Brazil obstruct the growth of the medication management market. Also, the factors such as high costs of maintenance and implementation of such advanced systems, difficulties in the adoption of medication management systems, reluctance from medical professionals, and shortage of IT specialists in the medical field are expected to hamper the growth of the medication management market.


The surge in the demand for reduced costs of operations in medical facilities combined with increased demand for remote patient monitoring and a growing focus on value-based medicine from major market players are expected to create profitable opportunities for the growth of the medication management market.                                                                 

COVID-19 Analysis of Medication Management Market:

The medication management market has been significantly impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic in many different parts of the world. The factors such as poor supply chain, shutdowns of hospitals and clinics, reduced hospital visits for other chronic diseases, and economic slowdown is the major impacts of COVID-19 on hampered the growth of the medication management market. Shipments were impacted during the initial lockdown due to a labor shortage and the closure of a manufacturing facility. However, the global circumstances have stabilized. As a result, it is determined that COVID-19’s overall impact on the medication management market is moderate. Post covid-19 there was a positive impact on the medication management market as the healthcare facilitators shift the focus to value-based medical diagnosis for improving the wide application of the drug intervention.
