The artificial intelligence for drug discovery and development market size was valued at $520 million in 2019 and is projected to reach $4,815 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 31.6% from 2020 to 2027. 

Artificial intelligence is a branch in computer science that deals with the simulation of intelligent behavior. It gives computers an ability to think and perform different tasks, such as humans and animals, while learning through the errors during this process. Artificial Intelligence is usually an algorithm built in such a way that permits the computer to perform tasks efficiently while making nominal errors. It uses personified knowledge by applying deep learning and machine learning algorithms while performing several tasks.

Artificial intelligence has significant applications in the drug discovery field as it helps track diseases, create disease cures and predict which animal viruses appear to mutate. Artificial intelligence has been known to enhance R&D in drug discovery, which has helped researchers to discover chronic disease treatments. Drug discovery and development in the fields of medicine, pharmacology, and biotechnology are processes for the creation, design, and procurement of a drug through identifying a biological target, such as enzyme protein, gene, or receptor. Previously, the drugs were discovered by identifying the active ingredient conventional treatments. Thus, drug discovery is the first step in the process of identifying potential novel drugs and their medicinal purpose. New criteria for drugs are measured based on their bioavailability, efficacy, potency, and toxicity.

In the healthcare industry, artificial intelligence has been widely used, specifically in finding novel drugs. This has the ability to identify drug targets, and plays a significant role in efficiently identifying, developing, detecting and screening small molecules in less time. Furthermore, market is expected to witness an exponential growth during the forecast period, owing to benefits of using these advanced techniques over conventional procedures. Moreover, the market is majorly driven by growing number of industry collaborations and partnerships. In addition, artificial intelligence reduces cost and time utilized in the drug discovery process, which further boosts the market growth. However, lack of skilled professionals and lack of data sets in the field of drug discovery hinder the market growth. On the contrary, increase in awareness related to artificial intelligence is expected to provide significant profitable opportunities for manufacturers in the artificial intelligence for drug discovery and development industry.

It is estimated that artificial intelligence for drug discovery and development market would show a significant market growth due to Covid-19 pandemic, owing to rise in adoption of AI to discover & develop drugs for treatment of COVID-19. For instance, in June 2020 Repurpose.AI collaborated with Scripps Research to develop COVID-19 therapeutics with a focus on drug repurposing. Artificial Intelligence based drug screening techniques will theoretically help to explain important part of the virus (such as protein structure) to assess how the functions of the virus can play an integral role in drug design and accelerate vaccine technologies to fight COVID-19. Moreover, Artificial intelligence can boost drug discovery and development process by quickly identifying drugs having efficacy against COVID-19. This bridge the gap between number of repurposed drugs (using existing drugs for other diseases), clinical testing and final drug authorization process.
