AI In Drug Discovery Market Size to Reach USD 10.80 Bn by 2030

According to Report Study, the global AI in Drug Discovery Market was valued USD 1.0 billion in 2021 and is set to reach USD 10.80 billion by 2030 and growing at a CAGR of 36% from 2022 to 2030.

 Artificial intelligence (AI) is expected to be a lucrative technology in the healthcare industry. The implementation of AI reduces research and development gap in the drug manufacturing process and helps in targeted manufacturing of drugs. Hence, biopharmaceutical companies are turning to AI to enhance market share. This is a major factor fueling the growth of the global AI for drug discovery market.

The increase in pressure on drug manufacturers to reduce drug prices is another factor expected to boost the growth of the global AI for drug discovery market. Shortage of skilled healthcare personnel is likely to accelerate the growth of the global AI for drug discovery market. However, limited awareness, high cost, and technical limitation of AI decision-making is projected to hamper the growth of the global market. Developing countries such as India and China offer significant opportunities in the AI for drug discovery market.

Increase in Incidence of Chronic Diseases

The incidence of chronic diseases, including diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), coronary artery disease, arthritis, asthma, hepatitis, and cancer, has increased significantly in major regions across the globe. This can be attributed to increase in the geriatric population across the world (over 20% of the global population is anticipated to be aged over 65 years by 2050), changing lifestyles, and dietary changes due to rapid urbanization.

According to the International Diabetes Federation, in 2020, 502 million people across the world were diagnosed with diabetes. Moreover, the number of new cancer cases per year is projected to increase to 23.4 million by 2030. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in Asia Pacific. China alone accounts for over 50% of all cancer cases in the region. Changes in lifestyle and socio-cultural factors are the leading causes of cervical cancer. Major countries affected by breast cancer in Asia Pacific are India, Thailand, and China.
