Market Dynamics


Increasing R & D expenditure by the pharmaceutical companies

According to the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers & Associations, the pharmaceutical industry spent around US$150 billion in the research & development activities. It is estimated that on an average, a pharmaceutical company spends around 17% of its revenues on the research & development. Therefore, the rapidly growing pharmaceutical industry and surging investments by them in the R&D is expected to drive the growth of the global drug discovery services market during the forecast period.


High costs associated with the drug discovery

A huge cost is involved in the services of drug discovery, owing to the higher attrition rate of the candidates during the development phase. Moreover, the research related to rare diseases requires a specific candidates’ group for the clinical trials. Moreover, the success rate is very low and the number of drugs that receives approval is very low. This involves a huge cost.


Rapidly growing biologics industry

The biologics industry has produced several life-saving innovative drugs that can cure chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and CVDs. The rising awareness regarding the biologics is boosting the demand for the biologics. The biopharmaceuticals alone accounts for 20% of the pharmaceutical industry and is rapidly growing, which offers immense growth opportunities to the market players.


Higher attrition rate of the candidates

The most difficult task in the drug discovery services is the identification and retention of the candidates in the clinical trials phase. The higher attrition rate of the candidates is a major challenge for the market players.
