Market Overview

The cost of research and development in the drug discovery is rising significantly. Most clinical trials for drugs are sponsored by pharmaceutical companies, who spends millions of money for drug development which in turn is the primary reason why their products are so expensive. Drug discovery is the area of research and development that accounts to the most amount of time and money.  The time frame can range from 4–25 years and costs can be thousands of millions of dollars. The healthcare industry was facing major challenges such as increasing costs, unacceptable error rates, and dissatisfied patients and providers. Drug Discovery Informatics uses sophisticated bioinformatics algorithms to process data related to drug, disease, protein, pathway, gene expression, sequence data and extend the flexible architecture to build new customized approaches and algorithms for diverse aspects of drug discovery which would help to minimize the cost for drug development. The other factor such as pharmaceutical companies gaining more interest on drug discovery and urgent need to limit the drug discovery and development cost are driving the Drug Discovery Informatics Market to grow.

Scope of the Report

The information technology supporting the drug discovery process is known as drug discovery bioinformatics. With the vast amount of biochemical data generated from experiments conducted by research laboratories around the globe, there is strong demand for software to analyse and manage the data effectively which will drive the market studied.

Key Market Trends

Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Companies is Expected to Grow with High CAGR in the Forecasted Period

Informatics analysis in drug discovery not only accelerate drug target identification and drug candidate screening and refinement but also facilitate characterization of side effects and predict drug resistance. High-throughput data such as genomic, epigenetic, genome architecture, cistromic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and ribosome profiling data have all made a significant contribution to mechanism-based drug discovery. Informaticians in drug discovery use high-throughput molecular data in comparisons between symptom-carriers (patients, animal disease models, cancer cell lines, etc.) and normal controls. Also, only 10 percent of drug molecules which are identified in research make it through development which means that many potential drugs do not make it to market, and expensive time and resources are invested m molecules that will generate no revenue. So, simulation and informatics can significantly increase the odds by improving the efficiency of drug development, cutting costs, and improving margins for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. Thus increasing the application of Informatics in drug discovery is augmenting the growth of the market. Also, major pharmaceutical companies have established high throughput screening facilities and have invested in automation to screen large compound libraries. There is pharmaceutical bioinformatics which is a new discipline in the area of the genomics revolution. It is central to biomedicine with application in areas like pharmacy, medicine, biology and medicinal chemistry which will help in the growth of the market in future forecast.
