Market Overview

The propelling factors for the growth of the drug discovery market include the rising prevalence of a wide range of diseases (such as cardiovascular and CNS-related disorders), rising healthcare expenditure, and upcoming patent expiration of blockbuster drugs.

The diverse range of diseases, primarily cardiovascular disease, infectious diseases, diabetes, and kidney-related complications, has a high prevalence, globally. Thus, the increasing prevalence of a diverse range of diseases among all age groups and its burden, globally, drives the demand for drug discovery and its market.

There has been an upsurge in the usage of advanced technologies, such as high throughput, bioinformatics and combinatorial chemistry for better drug candidate identification. Drug discovery has evolved significantly with emerging technologies, helping the process to become more refined, accurate, and less time consuming. Due to automation, multi-detector readers, imaging hardware and software, high-throughput screening is one of the most widely used drug discovery technologies. 

In recent years, there has been a rising demand for speciality medicines that are expected to ultimately influence the small molecule drug discovery market in a positive manner, as most of the speciality medicines are small molecules.

The gradual rise in the healthcare expenditure regionally helps the new pharmaceutical technology advancement. Although with high expenditure, there is a need for redirecting the resources, the transition toward better usability of healthcare expenditure for drug development is under progress.

Scope of the Report

As per the scope of the report, drug discovery is a process, which aims at identifying a compound therapeutically useful in treating and curing diseases. Typically, a drug discovery effort addresses a biological target that has been shown to play a role in the development of the disease or starts from a molecule with interesting biological activities. In the recent past, drug discovery has evolved significantly with emerging technologies, helping the process to become more refined, accurate, and less time consuming.

Key Market Trends

Biologics Drug is the Segment that is Expected to Grow Fastest under Drug Type

A biologic drug is a product that is produced from living organisms or contains components of living organisms. Biologic drugs include a wide variety of products derived from human, animal, or microorganisms. Biologic drugs are used for the treatment of numerous diseases and conditions and are the most advanced therapies available. Biologic treatments are for autoimmune diseases, which include the treatments for rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, and a range of related disorders, and have continued to see increasing usage across geographies. The biologic drugs are expected to be fueled by innovations in oncology, autoimmune, and diabetes treatments, with particular important opportunities for biologics in the oncology and autoimmune sectors.

The increasing applications of small molecule drugs for the treatment of chronic diseases are leading to the increased demand for these drugs in the market. Moreover, due to the aforementioned factors, small molecule drugs dominate the biologics in the current healthcare market.
