The discovery and identification of novel drug candidates is a time-intensive process, which is fraught with several challenges. One of the main concerns associated with the drug development process is the high attrition rate, which is often linked to the trial-and-error method adopted for lead identification. In this context, only a small percentage of pharmacological leads are eventually translated into potential candidates for clinical studies. Further, of these candidates, nearly 90% are unable to advance further in the development process. This, in turn, leads to a significant loss for drug developers, in terms of both resources and finances.

Usually, a prescription drug requires at least 10 years to reach the market, and an average investment of over USD 2 billion. In addition, it is reported that the drug discovery phase accounts for about one-third of the aforementioned costs. In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has emerged as prominent tool, demonstrated to have the potential to address a number of existing challenges. As a result, players engaged in the pharmaceutical domain have started implementing AI based tools to better inform their drug discovery and development operations, using available chemical and biological data.

Currently, a number of AI-based techniques, including machine learning, deep learning, supervised learning, unsupervised learning and natural language processing are being used across various stages of the drug development process. Specifically, AI-based solutions are being extensively used in combination with deep learning algorithms to produce actionable insights for target identification, hit generation, as well as lead optimization. Such solutions are anticipated to increase the overall R&D productivity and reduce clinical failure of product candidates.

Moreover, estimates suggest that, in 2022, the adoption of AI-based solutions for drug discovery are likely to enable savings worth USD 8.57 billion, with market projections suggesting cost savings of USD more than 28 billion by 2035. Despite the fact that niche startups are spearheading the innovation in this domain, several big pharma players are also actively acquiring capabilities for these technologies.

Numerous tech giants, such as Google, IBM and Microsoft, have either developed their proprietary products or are offering solutions through collaborations with other industry stakeholders; for instance Google's DeepMind and IBM Watson. Even though only a few of such AI-based platforms have gone public, developers have experienced considerable growth in share value as their respective platforms / product candidates progressed through the various stages of development. Taking into consideration both the historical and contemporary scenarios, we believe that the AI-based Drug Discovery Market presents lucrative investment opportunities for both short- and long-term investors.
