Earlier, customers from North America demonstrated a preference for service providers within the US to outsource their ADME requirements; however, clients are now more willing to work across borders. Despite growing activity in other upcoming regions, I believe that the major proportion of activity in this field is still restricted to within North America, followed by Asia-Pacific and Europe.

ADME Toxicology Testing Market Overview

The global in vitro ADME toxicology testing market is currently around $2.2 billion and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.8% till 2030.

The early stages of drug discovery research, which include the identification of a relevant biological target and a viable lead compound with therapeutic potential, play a crucial role in the overall success of a drug candidate in both preclinical and clinical studies. It is also important to note that the process of drug discovery is extremely demanding, both in terms of capital and time. In fact, the overall amount spent in R&D initiatives in the pharmaceutical / biotechnology sector has increased from around USD 128 billion in 2008 to USD 165 billion in 2018.

Moreover, only a small fraction of early stage therapeutic candidates are able to make it past preclinical evaluation. According to a study conducted on terminated drug development programs, the high rate of failure of drugs in clinical trials was primarily attributed to problems associated with their pharmacokinetic profiles, absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME) properties and inherent toxicity. As a result, the industry is currently under tremendous pressure to not only meet the expectations of a growing patient population, but to also identify ways to mitigate the risks associated with discovery programs of novel drug / therapy molecules.

Specifically, ADME studies are considered to be critical in establishing the safety and efficacy of drug candidates. Currently, there are a number of contract research organizations (CROs) that claim to have the necessary capabilities to offer in vitro ADME services. Over time, such service providers have grown to become an indispensable part of the pharmaceutical / biopharmaceutical market. Moreover, advances in combinatorial chemistry and high throughput screening in the last decade have made it possible to carry out early stage ADME screening for a large number of compounds in a more cost and time efficient manner. In less than a decade, the ADME services industry has witnessed noteworthy consolidation, with many of the smaller players being acquired by more established firms in efforts to augment services portfolios and widen geographical reach. Further, given the growing demand for high quality pharmacological interventions, and the cost and time-related benefits of outsourcing in vitro ADME research, the demand for CROs is projected to witness a significantly market growth during the forecast period.
