Drug developmentreduces the costs and schedules for drug discovery. The methodof drug discovery is used in biotechnology, pharmacology, and medicine to discover and design new medications.Furthermore, drug development service is used to discover and formulate for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and biopharmaceutical industries. This process involves various steps such as identification of applicants, synthesis, characterization, screening, and assays for therapeutic efficacy.Pharmaceutical drug development services are provided by CROs to pharmaceutical companies. The services include lead identification, drug discovery assistance, project management, clinical trials, and help in the development of drugs. The momentum spent on this market is accredited to the investments in developing drugs that can combat various diseases such as MS, HIV, and cancer.

COVID-19 scenario analysis:

  • Pharmaceutical and biotech companies together with governments around the globe are working to address the COVID-19 outbreak, from supporting the development of vaccines to planning for medicines supply chain challenges. Currently, around 115 vaccine candidates and 155 molecules are in the R&D pipeline. Moreover, commonly used drugs, such as hydroxychloroquine, have witnessed a dramatic surge in demand for the management of COVID-19.
  • Such high demand for these drugs has presented huge opportunities for manufacturers of COVID-19 management drugs as many developed countries are short of these drugs. The pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries are expected to witness a significant growth in the future, owing to the demand for vaccine and treatment drugs for COVID-19.
  • Attributed to such factors, COVID-19 is expected to have a significant impact on the market.

Top impacting factors: Market scenario analysis, trends, drivers and impact analysis

Augmented demand and supply for medicines, technological upgrades, and upswing in the adoption of innovative techniques for discoveriesand increase in the number of patents’ expiry escalate the market growth globally. Increase in R&D activities, healthcare sector developments, rise in awareness among population about chronic diseases, rise in number of contract development, and manufacturers that stimulating drug discovery and rapidly build up the pharmaceutical industry are factors that encourage the growth of the drug development services market. Developing countries are expected to be at the center of this market.

On the other hand, high investment required as capital but low-profit marginsand strict regulations by Food and Drug Administration hamper the growth of the drug development services market. Moreover, healthcare system challenges in underdeveloped and developing countries impede the growth of the drug discovery services market.
