Small Molecule Drug Discovery Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis by Therapeutic Area, Process and Geography

According to the latest study on "Small Molecule Drug Discovery Market Forecast to 2027– COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis by Therapeutic Area and Process/Phase", the global small molecule drug discovery market was valued at US$ 24,976.14 million in 2019 and is projected to reach US$ 50,823.06 million by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.5% during 2020–2027. The report highlights trends prevailing in the global small molecule drug discovery market and the factors driving market along with those that act as hindrances.

Small molecules drugs are used in targeted drug delivery in which small molecules pass through the cell membrane and acts on the specific cellular organelle or protein. The small molecules drugs are able to enter cells easily because of its low molecular weight. These molecules are better than monoclonal antibodies and other large molecule drugs due to their size, easy convertibility to oral form and, cost-effectiveness. The small molecule drug discovery market is expected to witness huge growth due to increasing approval of small molecule drugs, growing demand for R&D from contract organizations, and rising adoption of small molecules in chronic disease treatments. However, high drug development cost is expected to restrain the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Small Molecule Drug Discovery Market Competitive Landscape

Pfizer Inc., Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Merck KGaA, GlaxoSmithKline Plc, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc., Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd, Boehringer Ingelheim International GmbH, and Allergan Plc are among the leading companies operating in the small molecule drug discovery market.

The small molecule drug discovery market is expected to grow owing to factors such as increasing approval of small molecule drugs, growing demand for R&D from contract organizations, and rising adoption of small molecules in chronic disease treatments. However, high drug development cost is likely to restrain the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Rising Adoption of Small Molecules in Chronic Disease Treatments

As per the Centres for Disease Control (CDC), 6 in 10 adults suffer from a chronic condition, such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, kidney disease, lung disease, or stroke in the US, costing US$ 3.5 trillion to the economy in the US annually for the treatment of these chronic diseases. Chronic diseases are the most significant cause of deaths worldwide, and the number is growing every year. For instance, as per the CDC, more than 1.6 million people are diagnosed with cancer every year in the US.

Small-molecule medicines are expected to provide effective treatment options for chronic diseases owing to their size and ability to cross cell barriers. They can also be designed to cross the blood-brain barrier to target neurological illnesses. Small molecules are expected to play a critical role in reducing the burden of chronic disease. In the coming years, small molecules are expected to help with the formulation of more efficient and effective treatments for chronic conditions.

Small Molecule Drug Discovery Market Segmentation Review

Based on therapeutic area, the small molecule drug discovery market is segmented into oncology, central nervous system, cardiovascular, respiratory, orthopedics, immunology, rare diseases, and other therapeutic areas. The oncology segment held a largest share of the market in 2019 owing to the increasing small molecule drug approvals and growing pipeline for the cancer therapeutics. Moreover, increasing investment in oncology is further driving the growth of the segment. For instance, In December 2019, Zentalis Pharmaceuticals, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing clinically differentiated, novel small molecule therapeutics that target fundamental pathways in cancer, completed US$ 85 million Series C financing. However, the rare diseases segment is expected to register a higher CAGR in the market during the forecast period.

Based on process/phase, the small molecule drug discovery market is segmented into target discovery, target validation, lead generation and refinement, and preclinical development. The lead generation and refinement segment held the largest share of the global small molecule drug discovery market in 2019, owing to increasing investment in drug discovery and rising demand of cost-effective therapeutics. Moreover, the discovery of the target involves identification of disease modifying targets, which acts as one of the essential steps in drug discovery pipeline. However, the target discovery is anticipated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
