Drug Discovery Market Size to Reach USD 181.4 Billion by 2032 with a CAGR of 8.5% According to Acumen Research and Consulting

Acumen Research and Consulting recently published report titled “Drug Discovery Market Forecast, 2023 – 2032”

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Global Drug Discovery Market Size was valued at USD 81.5 Billion in 2022 and is projected to attain USD 181.4 Billion by 2032 mounting at a CAGR of 8.5% from 2023 to 2032.

Drug discovery Market is a complex process aimed at identifying and developing new medications to treat diseases. It typically involves multiple stages, starting with target identification – pinpointing specific molecules or biological pathways related to the disease. Next comes hit identification and validation, where potential compounds are screened to find those that interact effectively with the target. These hits undergo further optimization for efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics, aiming to enhance their therapeutic potential. In preclinical testing, compounds are rigorously evaluated in laboratory settings and animal models to assess their effects, toxicity, and potential side effects. Promising candidates advance to clinical trials, where they undergo rigorous testing in human volunteers across several phases to determine their safety and efficacy. Regulatory approval is sought based on comprehensive trial data, and if successful, the drug enters the market.

Key Findings and Statistics from the Drug Discovery Market:

  • The Drug Discovery Market is expected to reach USD 181.4 billion by 2032, growing from a value of USD 81.5 billion at a CAGR of 8.5% between 2023 and 2032.
  • North America led the market with over 36.70% revenue share in 2022, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific.
  • The small molecule drugs segment is the largest segment in the type segment with US$ 55.40 billion
  • Increasing research on chronic diseases is driving the growth of the drug discovery market.
