United States Compounding Pharmacies Market to Grow at a CAGR of 6% During 2024-2032, Aided by the Increasing Geriatric Population and the Rising Incidences of Chronic Diseases

United States Compounding Pharmacies Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘The United States Compounding Pharmacies Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6% between 2024 and 2032. The market is driven by the rising geriatric population and shortages of drugs that support the demand for alternative medications.

The United States compounding pharmacies market is experiencing significant growth driven by the expanding geriatric population and increasing life expectancy of the population, and the rising demand for alternative medications. Compounding pharmacies offer cost-effective and customised medication solutions to meet the specific needs of patients. According to the Population Reference Bureau, seniors will make up approximately 24% of the total US population by 2060. As of 2020, there were about 33.1 million individuals in the age group of 65 to 75 years, which were only 21.7 million in 2010. The effectiveness of these drugs in certain areas like pain management, among others, adds to its demand.

United States Compounding Pharmacies Market


The American College of Apothecaries and the Professional Compounding Centers of America are some of the organisations that offer certification programmes and some basic training in compounding. Nearly 7,500 out of 56,000 community-based pharmacies in the US specialise in offering compounding services, as estimated by the American Pharmacists Association, in terms of specialisation. The development of federal and state-level regulatory framework in order to minimize risks associated with the utilisation of compounded preparations is expected to aid the market in the coming years.


Further, rising collaboration in the form of partnerships is impacting the market dynamics of compounding pharmacies. For instance, in March 2024, CleanroomsUSA partnered with ViTalent to offer an end-to-end solution tailored specifically for 503A and 503B compounding pharmacies to streamline operations and ensure compliance in a regulated environment.
