AI for Drug Discovery Market: Drivers and Restraints
Shorten the Drug Discovery Process
Artificial Intelligence is expected as a lucrative healthcare industry avenue. Implementing AI eliminates the research and development gap in the drug production cycle and helps in targeted drug manufacturing as well as helps pharmaceutical companies streamline research and development activities for customized drugs and complex drug discovery. The AI in the Drug Discovery Market is driven by the growing need to shorten the process of drug discovery in order to get drugs to treat various chronic and viral diseases quicker. Due to this, Biopharmaceutical industries tend to increase their market share toward AI.
Declining Cost of the Discovered Drugs
Another factor expected to improve the AI to drug discovery market is the growing pressure on the drugmaker to lower the drug price. Artificial intelligence renders drug discovery more cost-effective and faster. Al lowered the failure rate of clinical trials and also eliminated the cost of long-term drug discovery research and development.
High Cost and Lack of Skilled Professionals
Lack of skilled professionals and infrastructure to facilitate easy AI adoption is a major factor that is expected to hamper global AI growth for the drug discovery market. Thus, in addition to limited acceptance by healthcare professionals, high costs and technological limitations of AI decision-making will impede market development.
