Biosimulation Market Research, 2032

The global biosimulation market size was valued at $2.5 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $10.6 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 15.8% from 2023 to 2032. Biosimulation, referred to as modeling and simulation (M&S) models is anticipated to be used in a range of different ways to help determine drug safety and efficacy, including drug identification, human dosing measures for different populations, drug-drug interactions (DDI), clinical trial design, and comparative effectiveness between drug candidates. In addition, biosimulation models use AI and machine learning (ML) to find patterns and evaluate relationships between drugs, patient populations, and clinical trial parameters.

Market dynamics 

Surge in demand for personalized medicine due to change in shift from the conventional medical treatment to personalized, or precision, medicine, rise in prevalence of cancer and chronic disease and surge in technological advancements for providing virtual clinical trials tools are the major factors that propel the biosimulation market size. In addition, the increase in the number of key market players that provide biosimulation software and services and the strategies they adopt to improve the product portfolio of the biosimulation are the factors that propel the growth of the market. For instance, in July 2022 Cadence Design Systems, Inc. had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire privately held OpenEye Scientific Software, Inc., a leading provider of computational molecular modeling and simulation software being widely and increasingly used by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies for drug discovery. 

The addition of technologies and experienced team of OpenEye with its deep scientific expertise is anticipated to accelerate Intelligent System Design strategy of Cadence and expand its total addressable market (TAM), bringing computational software expertise of Cadence to apply proven algorithmic, simulation and solver advances to life sciences. 
In addition, biosimulation services are often considered a more cost-effective and time-efficient alternative by allowing researchers to explore different scenarios virtually, reducing the need for extensive experimentation. 

Moreover, rapid development and adoption of digital health infrastructure, including (AI) (ML), helped to de-risk R&D decisions by providing meaningful actionable insights much earlier in the drug development process with unprecedented accuracy and scalability are the factors that increase the biosimulation market share.  

Furthermore, the high failure rate of clinical trials and increase in need to curtail the high costs of drug development are the key factors that boost the growth of the market. For instance, according to an article published in Archives of Pharmacy Practice in 2021 the entire process of drug development takes around $2-2.5 billion and a time of 12-15 years to complete. Around 50% of investigational compounds fail during the development phase of clinical trials. Many clinical trials fail to develop new, safe, and effective drugs despite numerous scientific and technological advancements in research and development. Approximately, 70% of clinical trials fail in phase 2; whereas the failure rate of confirmatory trials (phase 3) is around 50%.

Thus, increase in the number of R&D activities globally and increase in the failure rate of drugs in clinical trials are anticipated to increase the demand for biosimulation software that provide lucrative opportunities during the biosimulation market forecast.
