Small Molecule Drug Discovery Market To See Massive Growth By 2027 : MERCK KGaA, GlaxoSmithKline plc., AstraZeneca, Gilead Sciences, Inc.

The small molecule drug discovery market was valued at US$ 24,976.14 million in 2019 and is projected to reach US$ 50,823.06 Mn by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.5% from 2020 to 2027.

Small molecules drugs are used in targeted drug delivery in which small molecules pass through the cell membrane and acts on the specific cellular organelle or protein. The small molecules drugs are able to enter cells easily because of its low molecular weight. These molecules are better than monoclonal antibodies and other large molecule drugs due to their size, easy convertibility to oral form and, cost-effectiveness. The small molecule drug discovery market is expected to witness huge growth due to increasing approval of small molecule drugs, growing demand for R&D from contract organizations, and rising adoption of small molecules in chronic disease treatments. However, high drug development cost is expected to restrain the growth of the market during the forecast period.
