AI in Drug Discovery Market Revenue to Cross USD 13.4 Billion by 2035| Roots Analysis

Published: February 2024

According to a recently published report by Roots Analysis, the growing demand for highly efficient drugs to treat diseases has surged the requirement for AI-based tools to speed up the drug discovery process.

Global AI in Drug Discovery Market Overview

The global AI in drug discovery market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 25% from 2023-2035, reaching USD 13.4 billion by 2035.

The growth of AI in the drug discovery market is likely to be the result of growing demand for advanced therapeutic medicines to treat a wide range of diseases. In recent years, there has been a rapid surge in chronic diseases that cannot be cured with the existing drugs available in the market. On average, it takes around 10-15 years and around USD 1-2 billion of investment to develop drugs and achieve approval from the FDA. Additionally, experts say that about 90% of the drugs under clinical trials fail to enter the next stage of development. The conventional trial-and-error approach to drug development is tedious, time-consuming, and fraught with several challenges. The major problem arises due to incorrect data collected through conventional approaches. To address these concerns, pharmaceutical companies shifted to artificial intelligence-based tools to analyze large volumes of data in real-time accurately. Artificial intelligence-based tools such as big data analytics, deep learning, and machine learning help to collect data in real-time with seamless accuracy, thereby reducing clinical failures and ensuring safety during the early stages of development. It is worth noting here that over 50% of the aforementioned investment in the last two years predicts a rapid increase in the interest in AI-based tools for drug discovery and development. Considering the ongoing interest and rising adoption of AI in drug discovery, it is anticipated that the market will expand at a steady rate during the forecast period.
