Drug Discovery Platforms Market Overview

The drug discovery platforms market is estimated to be worth $139 million in 2022 and is expected to grow at CAGR of 13.4% during the forecast period.

Biologics are one of the fastest growing classes of therapeutics in the pharmaceutical industry. However, the development of such large molecule drugs is inherently complex, involving elaborate target selection and validation, hit generation, lead selection / optimization and characterization protocols. Of the aforementioned steps, hit (potential drug candidates against validated biological targets) generation is a highly resource-intensive process. In fact, it is estimated that an average of 18 months is spent in generating hits against a validated target. Additionally, there is an approximate 25% chance of failure in the hit generation to lead identification phase of drug discovery. Over time, a variety of methods / approaches have been developed for the generation of viable therapeutic leads; these include the hybridoma technology, B-cell cloning, transgenic animal-based techniques, in vitro display methods (using phages, ribosomes, mRNA, and cDNA) and cell surface display methods (involving mammalian, yeast, and bacterial cells).

Despite being responsible for the development of several successful therapies, the hybridoma and B-cell based hit generation techniques are limited in several aspects; for instance, drugs / drug candidates developed using the aforementioned technologies are often highly immunogenic, and developers also find it difficult to develop and produce stable molecules with noteworthy affinities for their respective targets. As a result, innovator companies have demonstrated a preference for some of the relatively newer hit generation methods, which involve the use of display-libraries. 

In modern medical research, display libraries have been successfully employed for the generation of various novel therapeutics and offer certain advantages over conventional drug screening methods, including (but not limited to) the ability to facilitate large-scale, high throughput screening, incorporation of greater diversity in viable lead identification, and eliminating the threat of possible immune response to pharmacological candidates identified through this approach. Out of the available display technologies, those based on phages are the most popular, primarily owing to the simplicity of the selection method they offer and the fact that they can be used to generate hits against several complex antigens. In fact, we observed that more than 15 biologics (including antibodies, proteins and peptides) that were discovered using phage display technologies, have already been approved by the USFDA; prominent examples include Humira®, Cyramza® and Benlysta®.

Further, according to various sources, around 70 display library-derived antibodies have entered clinical studies. There are many other versatile display technologies, namely yeast display, mammalian display, ribosomal display, bacterial display, mRNA display and cDNA display, which have their own benefits and have gained commendable recognition among innovators in the biopharmaceutical industry, in recent years. The growing interest in using display libraries is reflected in the recent increase in partnership activity, especially between companies that offer this technology / related services and drug developers. In summary, display technologies have enabled notable evolutionary changes in the drug discovery paradigm; we are led to believe that the drug discovery platforms market is likely to witness healthy market growth during the forecast period.
