The government, market participants, and research organizations are working together to develop a vaccine against COVID-19. France was also leading the market, but current challenges to running clinical trials safely and effectively hinder the growth of this region's clinical trials market.

Furthermore, the rise in disposable income in urban areas and the growing scale of research institutes in the biotechnology field are further boosting the growth rate of the European clinical trials market.


However, the absence of skilled persons in manufacturing products under different strategies is slowly degrading the market's growth. Lack of standardization is one of the factors hampering the growth of the Europe clinical trials market. In addition, stringent rules and regulations by the government in approving the latest products have remained a challenging factor for the market players.
