Trends and Opportunities

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is projected to a lucrative avenues in the healthcare industry. The implementation of AI reduces researches and development gap in the drug manufacturing process and help in the targeted manufacturing of the drugs. Owing to this biopharmaceutical industries are tending towards AI to enhance their market share. This is a major factor fueling the growth of the global AI for drug discovery market.

The increasing pressure on the drug manufacturer to reduce drug price is another factor expected to boost the AI for drug discovery market. This is because Al reduced the failure rate of clinical trials and also eliminated the cost of length research and development in the drug discovery. Dearth of skilled healthcare professionals are another factor anticipated to bolster the growth of the global AI for drug discovery market.

 However, limited awareness, high cost and technical limitation of AI decision-making can impede the market growth. These limitations are expected to overcome with the untapped market opportunities in the emerging economies of the globe. Countries like India and China offers new avenues for the growth of the AI for drug discovery market.
