Drug Discovery Market Overview:

The increasing occurrence of chronic diseases like central nervous system-related conditions, cardiovascular diseases, soaring healthcare expenditure, pending expiration of drug-related patents are some of the major factors responsible for the growth of the market. There has been a rise in the implementation of novel technologies like bioinformatics, combinational chemistry and high throughput for identifying drug candidates efficiently. This has evolved drug discovery sector, thereby helping in refining the process which consumes less time and provides accurate results. The automation has evolved technologies like imaging software and hardware, multi-detector readers and high-throughput screening for discovering drugs. Recently, there has been a surging insistence for speciality medicines which has boosted the drug discovery market growth. The biologic drugs are utilised for treating multiple conditions and diseases and these are novel technologies. These drugs are used for treating autoimmune diseases like psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, etc. Such a wide range of applications shall increase the drug discovery market demand.
