Drug Discovery Services Market is estimated to be US$ 19.1 billion by 2025 with a CAGR of 12.1 % during the forecast period

Drug discovery is the method of new drug designing. Random screening, molecular manipulation, drug metabolites, molecular designing, and serendipity are the most common methods employed for drug discovery. Drug discovery services are mainly developed to lower the costs and timelines of drug discovery. In biotechnology, pharmacology, and medicine, the procedure of drug discovery is applicable to design and discover new medications. Drug discovery services are an extremely important tool extensively used in forensics, disaster victim identification, paternity testing, and anthropology with DNA analysis. The drug target recognition, drug discovery selection, and drug design based on the fragment, lead compound recognition, and lead optimization form the core of drug discovery services.
