Rising Demand for Novel Therapies for Various Therapeutic Areas
The rising demand for novel medicine for chronic diseases coupled with development in the global healthcare sector is anticipated to drive drug discovery services market growth. Pharma and biopharma firms continue to outsource their research and development (R&D) activities to contract research organisations (CROs), who have positioned themselves to provide best-in-class R&D services and create engagement models to maximise R&D productivity and reduce the financial burden placed on pharmaceutical corporations. The rising burden of chronic diseases is enforcing government and pharmaceutical companies to look for the solution and rising investment in clinical trials. Therefore, the demand for drug discovery services will rise. However, due to lack of skilled labours and the high rate of target drug molecule failure will be the major restraint to the market.

How has COVID-19 had a Significant Positive Impact on the Drug Discovery Services Market?

The sudden onset and spreading of the SARS-CoV-2 motivated international multilateral organisations and private funders to pool their funds to support the development of an effective vaccine to combat the coronavirus and its variants. Around the world, a vast number of scientists, technologists, and data managers are involved in everything from laboratory investigations to clinical trials. The COVID-19 intervention has helped the government and healthcare sectors understand the value and necessity of drug discovery for the development of effective medications. As a result, many businesses have increased their R&D spending, and the government has placed a strong emphasis on drug discovery and development, which has a favourable impact on the market for drug discovery services.
