The process of successfully developing a novel therapeutic intervention is both time and cost intensive. In fact, it is estimated that a drug requires around 10 years and over USD 2.5 billion in capital investment, before reaching the market. In this process, clinical trials play a crucial role by assessing the drug's efficacy and safety in humans. These trials account for nearly 50% of the time and capital expenditure during drug development. However, not all trials are successful, leading to delays and financial burdens for sponsors. Over the past few decades, the likelihood of a drug candidate successfully progressing from the start of clinical trials to obtaining marketing approval has remained relatively constant at approximately 10% - 20%. Factors contributing to clinical stage product failure include inadequate study design, incomplete patient recruitment, improper subject stratification, and high participant attrition. In attempts to address these challenges, stakeholders in the pharmaceutical industry are exploring solutions and strategies to streamline clinical trials.

One such innovative strategy involves integrating AI in drug development, which has the potential to revolutionize traditional methods, particularly in clinical trials. It is worth noting that artificial intelligence in clinical trials can help integrate and analyze large volumes of data, enabling trial sponsors to optimize future research initiatives. Additionally, by addressing issues related to trial design, patient recruitment and retention, site selection, data interpretation, and treatment evaluation, AI has the potential to enhance and refine the entire process of clinical drug development. Hence, with the rising interest of investors in this field, we anticipate the AI in clinical trials market to witness healthy growth during the forecast period.
