The global drug discovery outsourcing market size is expected to reach USD 4.44 billion by 2025 at an 8.14% CAGR

Urging need to identify potential drug candidates for various chronic diseases is anticipated to fuel growth.

Technological advances in in silico drug designing and accelerating integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in drug discovery are driving industry progress. Multiple applications of AI algorithms in drug design and discovery provide opportunities for players to offer specialized drug discovery services. It is useful for processes such as target and compound selection, predictive analytics, screening, and drug repurposing.

Projected rise in adoption of outsourcing over the forecast period is expected to boost market revenue generation. Half of the drug discovery processes are anticipated to be outsourced, thereby creating massive opportunities for CROs, CMOs, and CDMOs to expand their market presence.

Number of collaborations among these organizations, key pharmaceutical players, and several universities has increased over the past few years. This rise in alliance further supports the projected increase in growth potential.

High cost and high risk of drug failure are major challenges faced in drug discovery. However, advances in technology that increase efficiency of drug discovery, coupled with increased adoption of highly advanced technology to provide specialized services, allow outsourcing companies to overcome these challenges.

Further key findings from the report suggest:

  • Escalating incidence of respiratory disorders such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is projected to indirectly propel market growth. Advancements in technologies, such as emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the pharmaceutical industry, is also anticipated to accelerate industry progress
  • Moreover, increasing incidences of antibiotic resistance as well as drug resistance have improved focus on discovery of novel compounds to treat conditions such as Multidrug-Resistant TB (MDR-TB)
  • Based on workflow, lead identification and candidate optimization is slated for impressive growth owing to high bottlenecks in this workflow segment
  • By therapeutic area, oncology drug discovery outsourcing is fueled by increasing demand for oncology solutions, coupled with expanding government support in cancer research
  • North America dominates the global market owing to high focus on R&D in identification of novel drug candidates, along with presence of key players
  • Asia Pacific is projected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period as a result of increasing number of CRO, CMOs, and CDMOs in emerging countries. Rising trend of outsourcing manufacturing and R&D activities to countries such as China and India will aid growth in the region
  • Some of the major players are Charles River; EVOTEC, Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings; GenScript, Merck & Co., Inc.; Jubilant Biosys; Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc.; Oncodesign; Albany Molecular Research, Inc.; WuXi AppTec; Dalton Pharma Services; Pharmaceutical Product Development, LLC; DiscoverX Corporation; and QIAGEN
  • Collaboration of players with key pharmaceutical companies and academics and research centers is observed to increase in recent years.
