Global AI in Drug Discovery Market to Reach $1.434 Billion by 2024
A report from Markets and Markets finds that the global AI in Drug Discovery market will grow from $259 million in 2019 to $1.434 billion by 2024 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 40.8 percent in the forecast period. An excerpt from the report description reads:
The growth of the artificial intelligence in drug discovery market is primarily driven by factors such as the growing number of cross-industry collaborations and partnerships, the increasing need to control drug discovery & development costs and reduce the overall time taken in this process, the rising adoption of cloud-based applications & services, and the impending patent expiry of blockbuster drugs.
On the other hand, a lack of data sets in the field of drug discovery and the inadequate availability of skilled labor are some of the factors challenging the growth of the market.
