The process of developing new small-molecule drugs is divided into two phases, namely, drug discovery and drug development. Drug discovery is defined as the process through which potential new drug molecules are identified. It is a multi-stage process, involving a wide range of scientific disciplines, including biology, chemistry and pharmacology.
The key processes involved in drug discovery include: target identification and validation, hit generation and selection, leads identification and lead optimization.
Rise in the demand for small-molecule drugs; dominance of small molecules in the market; increasing number of contract organizations for R&D; and the use of small molecules in treatment of chronic diseases are the factors driving the growth of small-molecule drug discovery market.
High drug development cost and strict regulations by government authorities for the approval of small molecules are hindering the growth of global small-molecule drug discovery market.
The global small-molecule drug discovery market has been segmented on the bases of (a) therapeutic area (oncology, central nervous system, cardiovascular, respiratory, metabolic, gastrointestinal, orthopedics, anti-infective, dermatology, immunological and others), (b) process phase (target ID/validation, hit generation and selection, lead identification and lead optimization) (c) and by geography (North America, Europe, Asia-pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa).
The report provides detailed overview of the small-molecule drug discovery market, along with in-depth analysis and company profiles of major players. It provides a clear picture of the competitive landscape that exists currently in this market.
