Growth Factors:

growing R&D expenditure in the pharmaceutical & biopharmaceutical industry, thus necessitating increasing demand for outsourcing analytical testing and clinical trial services. Initiatives for research on rare diseases and orphan drugs, and focus on drug discovery are driving the growth of the global drug discovery services industry. Growth in biologics, patent expiries and emerging economies are expected to provide a wide range of growth opportunities for players in the market.

Drug Discovery Services Market Dynamics
Driver: Growing R&D expenditure in the pharmaceutical & biopharmaceutical industry
R&D activity has grown significantly in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry. In 2017, the pharmaceutical industry alone spent USD 149.8 billion on R&D (Source: International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers & Associations). Also, pharmaceutical companies spend, on average, 17% of their revenue on R&D.

Pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and medical device companies invest heavily in the development of novel drugs and devices, with most of the expenditure concentrated on phase III and the preclinical stages of drug development. Growth in R&D expenditure, fueled by the need for numerous preclinical and clinical services during the drug discovery and development process, is one of the major factors propelling the drug discovery services market, globally.

According to the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) Annual Membership Survey (2018), the R&D expenditure of PhRMA members increased to USD 71.4 billion in 2017 from USD 59.6 billion in 2015. Further increases in R&D spending in the coming years will provide a significant boost to drug discovery and development activities, which will ensure the growth of the drug discovery services market in the forecast period.

Drug discovery and development involve high costs due to the high attrition rate of drug candidates in development. Since R&D for some rare diseases is very challenging and requires a specific group of people to conduct a clinical trial, drug R&D processes can be prone to failure. In addition, only 7 of 100 cancer drugs that reach the clinical testing phase end up gaining regulatory approval; most drugs fail long before this point. From drug discovery through FDA approval, developing a new medicine, on average, takes 10–15 years and costs USD 2.6 billion. Less than 12% of the candidate medicines that make it to phase I clinical trials are approved by the FDA (Source: Biopharmaceuticals in Perspective, Summer 2019).

In addition, high financial costs, difficulties in the recruitment and retention of participants, insufficiencies in the clinical research workforce, drug sponsor-imposed barriers, regulatory and administrative barriers, disconnect between clinical research and medical care, and barriers related to the globalization of clinical research may also negatively affect the overall drug development process. This compels companies to invest in the development of generics instead of new drug development

Many companies are investing heavily in the development of biologics. Currently, more than half of the drug candidates in the discovery stage are biologics, such as proteins, peptides, and monoclonal antibodies. As newer biologics are being discovered or are in the pipeline, pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies are heavily investing in their R&D. CROs have also become important in this field as providers of specialized services, such as drug discovery services, for biologics.

According to the US FDA, the number of new biologic approvals in the US increased from 41 in 2014 to 59 in 2018. This is nearly double the 10-year (2009–2017) average of 33 new molecular entities (NME) approvals by the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER). Growing investments by biopharmaceutical companies to develop biologics are further expected to increase the number of approved products worldwide.

The approval pathway for a biologic is more stringent than that for generic medicines, as, unlike chemically synthesized APIs, establishing bioequivalence for a biotech-based API is difficult and complex. Thus, compared to small molecules, biologics require specialized testing services. This will offer opportunities for contract research service providers to expand their portfolios and capabilities and offer drug discovery services
