AI in Drug Discovery Market Dynamics:

One of the key aspects influencing the growth of the AI in drug discovery market can be high capital investment in the drug discovery and development process. Following the conventional method of drug discovery and drug development results in the consumption of 12-14 years till a final product, the authorized drug reaches the market for end use. For instance, as per the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, on average, a drug takes about 10 years to reach the market with clinical trials themselves accounting for 6-7 years out of the total time period. The same source further stated that the average cost to develop each successful drug comes out to be approximately USD 2.5 billion. The drug discovery step in the drug development process is extremely daunting as there is a vast chemical space, comprising >1060 molecules that may serve as the starting point for developing potential drugs. The advantages offered by AI in terms of machine learning, neural networks can recognize hit and lead compounds, and provide a quicker validation of the drug target and optimization of the drug structure design. Therefore, all the aforementioned factors point towards the advantages of including AI in drug discovery process helping in faster identification of targets, lead compounds and subsequent development of drug, thereby presenting a positive growth outlook for the AI in drug discovery market during the forecast period (2022-2027).

 

Another aspect of including AI in drug discovery and drug development process is leveraging the technology in understanding the patterns in the already published data to identify “trending” areas of research for different diseases that may provide insights regarding any scientific progress that may be utilized in initiating a new drug development program. This is done by using natural language processing (NLP) that helps in data mining and creating interconnected “knowledge graphs”. These knowledge graphs are essentially a threading together of the data from different areas of drug development such as disease-related data, drug-related data, or chemical/biological-entity-related data. Moreover, certain companies are involved in finding new uses of already approved drugs. For instance, an AI-focused startup Healx makes use of such knowledge graphs to gain insights into rare diseases. The company is working on the data for 4,000 FDA-registered drugs and this approach has also yielded drug candidates for the company that showed efficacy in animal models. Thus, the application of artificial intelligence in sifting through humongous data to create knowledge graphs and identify potential lead compounds and disease areas is another aspect driving the growth of the AI in drug discovery market in coming years.

 

Furthermore, the adoption of AI solutions in the clinical trial process eliminates possible obstacles, helps in the reduction of clinical trial cycle time, and significantly improves the productivity and accuracy of the clinical trial process. Therefore, the adoption of these advanced AI solutions in drug discovery processes is gaining popularity amongst life science industry stakeholders.

 

However, knowledge gaps between biologists, chemists, and AI scientists as well as limitations of traditional machine learning tools in handling the volume of data generated in the pharmaceutical field may prove to be challenging factors for AI in drug discovery market growth. 

 

The AI in drug discovery market was one of the few markets that witnessed positive growth during the COVID-19 pandemic. Artificial intelligence platform was extensively leveraged in drug research for SARS CoV-2 virus.  AI was also leveraged in drug repurposing, also known as drug repositioning helping in getting specific therapies to the market. For instance, Remdesivir was originally discovered as the potential treatment for Ebola virus disease; using drug repurposing via AI showed the drug to provide promising results in the treatment of the COVID-19 infection. Therefore, the market for AI in drug discovery exhibited positive trend during the pandemic thereby presenting a future outlook for AI in drug discovery during the forecast period from 2022-2027.

AI in Drug Discovery Market Segment Analysis:

AI in Drug Discovery Market by Type (De Novo Drug Design and Optimization, Preclinical Testing, and Others), by Application (Oncology, Cardiovascular, Infection Diseases, and Others), by End User (Pharmaceutical & Biotechnology Companies, Contract Research Organizations, and Others), and by Geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World)

 

In the type segment of the AI in drug discovery market, the de novo drug design category is estimated to account for a prominent revenue share in market during the forecast period (2022-2027). This can be attributed to the advantages associated with AI in de novo drug design and optimization. Compared to conventional de novo drug design methodologies that include structure or ligand-based approaches among others are quite time consuming, artificial intelligence in de novo drug design applies different approaches in creating new targets from no previous information from large number of datasets. For instance, deep reinforcement learning (DRL) is a combination of artificial neural networks with reinforcement learning architectures, and has recently been employed in de novo drug design. Examples of DRL in de novo drug design is recurrent neural network (RNN) which has been successfully employed in the de novo drug design of novel molecular entities. An RNN is suitable for the analysis of sequential data such as text or molecules represented as a sequence of characters like SMILES. RNN works sequentially by processing one step at a time in a series of actions. RNN recognize and learn from SMILES strings’ patterns and the molecules produced from the de novo molecule procedure are chemistry-driven. Therefore, considering the advantages associated with AI in de novo drug design, it is expected to be one of the key application areas of AI in drug discovery in coming years, thereby contributing in the market growth.

North America is expected to dominate the overall AI in Drug Discovery Market:

Among all the regions, North America is estimated to amass the largest revenue share in the global AI in drug discovery market in the year 2021.
