Dublin, May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "AI-based Drug Discovery Market: Distribution by Drug Discovery Steps, Therapeutic Area and Key Geographies: Industry Trends and Global Forecasts, 2022-2035" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
This report features an extensive study of the current landscape and future potential of the players engaged in offering AI-based services, platforms and tools for the discovery of novel drug candidates. The study features an in-depth analysis, highlighting the capabilities of AI-based drug discovery service / technology providers.
The discovery and development process of a novel therapeutic candidate is often tedious and fraught with several challenges. The key concern associated with the overall process is the high attrition rate, which is often attributed to the trial-and-error approach followed for the drug discovery process. In fact, only a small proportion of pharmacological leads are translated into viable product candidates for clinical studies. In addition, experts believe that close to 90% of the product candidates considered in such studies fail to advance further in the development process.
This, in turn, often results in a massive financial burden. In this context, it is estimated that a prescription drug takes around 10 to 15 years and an average investment of USD 1 to 2 billion, in order to traverse from the bench to the market. Moreover, around one-third of the aforementioned expenditure is incurred during the drug discovery phase alone. Therefore, to address the existing concerns, such as rising capital requirements and failure of late-stage programs, pharmaceutical players are currently exploring the implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) based tools to better inform their discovery and development operations, using available chemical and biological data.
Specifically, AI is believed to be capable of processing and analyzing large volumes of clinical / medical data, as well as leverage it to better inform modern drug discovery efforts. In this context, deep learning algorithms have been demonstrated to be able to cross-reference published scientific literature (structured data) with electronic health records (EHRs) and clinical trial information (unstructured data), in order to generate actionable insights for target identification, hit generation and lead optimization.
At present, machine learning, deep learning, supervised learning, unsupervised learning and natural language processing are some of the key AI-based tools being deployed across different processes, including drug discovery, within the healthcare sector. The use of AI-enabled technologies in drug discovery operations is expected to not only improve the overall R&D productivity, but also reduce clinical failure of product candidates, by enabling accurate prediction of its safety and efficacy during early stages of development. Close to 210 companies currently claim to offer AI-based services, platforms and tools for drug discovery.
Further, over USD 10 billion has been invested in this market by both private and public sector investors, in the last five years. Interestingly, close to 50% of the aforementioned amount was invested in the last two years, reflecting the increasing interest of stakeholders in AI-based tools for drug discovery.
Additionally, close to 440 recently instances of collaborations have been reported between industry / academic stakeholders in order to advance the development of various AI-based solutions for drug discovery. Considering the active initiatives being undertaken by players based in this domain, we are led to believe that the opportunity for stakeholders in this niche, albeit upcoming, industry is likely to grow at a commendable pace in the foreseen future.
