For example, in February 2023, Insilico Medicine launched its Insilico Medicine Generative Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Computing Research and Development Centre in Abu Dhabi, the largest AI-driven biotech research center in the region.


In February 2023, Evotec SE extended its integrated multi-target drug discovery agreement with Related Sciences, a data-driven biotechnology creation company. This will enable them to leverage their lead role across the whole R&D chain through 2030 on their joint portfolio of drug development candidates.


An instance is that in April 2022, Iktos, which specializes in Artificial Intelligence (AI) for new drug design and Teijin Pharma Limited—the core company today of Teijin Group’s healthcare business who, offers comprehensive healthcare services to improve quality of life—announced strategic collaboration agreement regarding Artificial Intelligence with reference to small molecules’ discovery.


For example, Cyclica announced Perturba Therapeutics during February 2022—a University of Toronto spin-out specializing in AI-powered oncology drug design; Perturba aims to tackle this by plugging Cyclica’s complete AI-augmented proteome-wide drug design platform into two first-in-class live cell-based assays from Stagljar Lab.”


Similarly, in January 2022, Fosun Pharma, a China-based healthcare group and Insilico Medicine teamed up towards discovery and development of drugs targeting different targets globally using artificial intelligence (AI).


For example, PostEra expanded Pfizer’s existing strategic partnership in January 2022, with a biotech firm specialized with machine learning for pre-clinical drug discovery. The enlarged multi-target research program has created an AI Lab where multiple drug discovery programs are being advanced jointly by PostEra and Pfizer initially focusing on oncology as well as COVID-19 antiviral therapeutics. In addition, Pfizer's data builds upon novel machine learning for medicinal chemistry at the AI Lab facilitated by PostEra’s generative chemistry & synthesis-aware design.


Atomwise, a leading player in AI-driven small molecule drug discovery, made an announcement in December 2020 that expanded its portfolio through joint ventures with A2i Therapeutics and FutuRx.


For example, in March 2020, Charles River Laboratories International Inc. collaboratively worked with Deciphex. This collaboration involved the use of Deciphex’s Patholytix Preclinical platform designed to improve pathologists’ output and accelerate the delivery of findings to customers.


Drug Discovery Informatics Market Trends



  • The growing chronic illness burden is driving the market growth


The rising chronic illness burden drives Market CAGR for Drug Discovery Informatics. Rising R&D spending, increased funding for studies, especially in rare diseases, and increased use of bioinformatics in the development of drugs are driving market growth. The cost of discovering drugs, studying, and developing them is increasing dramatically. Most medication clinical trials are funded by pharmaceutical companies, which spend hundreds of millions of USD on drug development. Other factors propelling the drug discovery informatics business include pharmaceutical corporations' increasing involvement in a drug study and a pressing need to reduce the development and discovery of drugs expenses. Given that technologies based on data remain in their early stages, they are expected to expand rapidly. In addition, certain benefits offered by drug delivery informatics remedies, including enhanced drug discovery procedure storing and extraction, knowledge organization, and immediate information that may be utilized in making decisions, are projected to propel the worldwide drug discovery informatics marketplace throughout forecasting.


Additionally, it assists clients in making key decisions regarding optimizing drug safety and efficacy profiles. Businesses are also progressively implementing informatics technologies to reduce the lengthy drug research schedule. Curve Therapeutics Ltd., for example, will use the CDD Vault system to manage its biologically coded Microcycle technology in December 2020. It is a widely used hosted platform for applications in medicine, biotechnology, and educational institutions for the secure and frictionless exchange of data in actual time, encouraging cooperative discoveries.


The  acceleration of Covid-19 drug discovery is helping to market growth. For example, scientists used virtual testing using drugs from the DrugBank to target viral proteins and human ACE2 receptors to provide quick answers. This research used silico techniques to identify small compounds that could be used in drug discovery against Covid-19. Similarly, firms are creating various digital services and solutions to aid in the various stages of developing drugs for Covid-19.


For instance, Novartis funded around USD 59 million to spend on underserved illness study and development in 2021, based on the 2021 Annual report, as identified by the Access to Medicine Foundation as research and development areas of greatest need. As an outcome of these expenditures, many formerly fatal diseases are now controllable and even treatable, and this pattern is projected to continue, driving growth. Thus, it is anticipated that demand for Drug Discovery Informatics will increase throughout the projected timeframe due to the rising chronic illness burden. Thus, driving the Drug Discovery Informatics market revenue.
