Growing at an annualized rate of 14.7%, the drug repurposing service providers market is expected to be worth over a billion dollars by 2030, claims Roots Analysis

Published: September 2020

Given the success of approved repurposed therapeutics, such as Viagra® and Thalomid®, this approach has become a key lifecycle management strategy; in fact, several drugs being evaluated for the treatment of COVID-19 are repurposed candidates

Roots Analysis has announced the addition of the Drug Repurposing Market report to its list of offerings. 

Repurposing of marketed / shelved / pipeline candidates for the treatment of diseases (different from original target indications) has emerged as a viable business strategy. The rising popularity of this approach can further be attributed to various benefits, such as reduced development timelines, decreased investments and relatively higher success rates (considering that the safety profiles of such candidates have already been established).
