Artificial Intelligence in Drug Discovery Market To Reach USD 2.13 Billion By 2027 | Reports and Data

The increasing demand for new drugs, the rising number of new diseases and increasing collaborations among various firms is expected to drive the market in the forecast period.

New York, April 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to Reports and Data, the Artificial Intelligence in Drug Discovery Market was valued at USD 253.8 million in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 2,127.9 million by the year 2027, at a CAGR of 31.9%. Artificial intelligence has known to have enormous applications in the field of drug discovery as it helps to analyze outbreaks, develop cures for diseases, and also predict which animal viruses tend to mutate. In drug discovery, artificial intelligence has known to improve research and development, which allowed researchers to discover treatments for chronic diseases. The use of machine learning to manage the huge number of data sets is increasing advances in drug discovery. The rising need to manage drug discovery costs is expected to drive the market in the future.

Drug discovery includes various processes and stages that demand a huge amount of funds. Moreover, clinical trials and acceptance of the drug in the market could be a challenging task. Artificial intelligence is capable of reducing such high costs in research and development as it finds solutions faster and with precision. Furthermore, increasing collaborations among companies to produce patented drugs could also be a major driver for the market. Artificial intelligence may reduce a large amount of time utilized in the drug discovery process. Therefore, reduction in time factor could be a primary market driver in the forecast period. The increasing demand for cloud-based software that enables the researcher to design drugs quickly and accurately is expected to drive the market widely. Also, various patents acquired by the companies are expected to be on the verge of expiry, which could drive the market growth. On the other hand, the shortage of skilled personnel and insufficient data in drug discovery could be some restraints for the market.

COVID-19 Impact
As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to spread all across the globe, scientists and researchers are exploring every possible option for help battling the coronavirus pandemic. The industry players and researchers are looking to use artificial intelligence as a way of addressing the challenges of the virus. The artificial intelligence represents an engrossing avenue.  Moreover, AI has been used to search for new molecules capable of treating Covid-19, of scanning through lung CTs for signs of Covid-related pneumonia, and to aid the epidemiologists who tracked the disease's spread early on.

Numerous research projects are using AI to identify timely drugs. For instance, BenevolentAI, a London-based drug-discovery company, the company's AI-powered knowledge graph can digest large volumes of scientific literature and biomedical research to find links between the genetic and biological properties of diseases and the composition and action of drugs. Furthermore, DeepMind, the AI arm of Google's parent company Alphabet, is using data on genomes to predict organisms' protein structure, potentially shedding light on which drugs could work against COVID-19. Additionally, Canadian startup DarwinAI has developed a neural network that can screen X-rays for signs of COVID-19 infection. While using swabs from patients is the default for testing for coronavirus, analyzing chest X-rays could offer an alternative to hospitals that don't have enough staff or testing kits to process all their patients quickly.

Furthermore, Germany-based Innoplexus has used its drug discovery information engine to design a novel molecule candidate with a high binding affinity to a target protein on the coronavirus while maintaining drug-likeness criteria such as bioavailability, absorption, toxicity, etc. AI firm, Gero, which specializes in AI-driven drug discovery, has used its AI platform to identify the possible anti-COVID-19 drugs. Six of them have been approved, three were withdrawn, and nine have been already tested in clinical trials for other indications. In March 2020, TCS partnered with CSIR to design the AI-based drug discovery process for COVID-19. Besides that, AI is not only able to warn us of an impending epidemic, but it can help us develop, identify and scale new treatments and vaccines as we continue to navigate the solution to contain the pandemic. However, during a pandemic, when people are eager for quick solutions, the dangers of trusting an unproven technology are greater than ever.
