Small Molecule Drug Discovery Market Key Takeaways


Small molecule drugs are compounds with low molecular weight that are capable of modulating biochemical processes to diagnose, treat, or prevent diseases. These drugs include aspirin, diphenhydramine, and aripiprazole.

Small molecule drugs have organic compounds and metabolites. When the biological target is well defined and understood, the rational design of small molecule ligands is possible. Moreover, small molecule libraries are also used for unbiased assays of complex diseases in which biological target is unknown or multiple factors contribute to the disease.

Small molecule drug infiltrate through the cell membrane to easily interact with targeted molecules present inside the cell. These molecules are intended to impede with the enzymatic action of the target protein, also known as enzyme inhibitors.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities:

  • Rising technological advancements and growing preference for small molecules are some of the key drivers that are contributing to the growth of the global small molecule drug discovery market.
  • Rising disease complications have led major players to increase their R&D expenditure, which in turn, is expected to augment the small molecule drug discovery market growth.
  • High drug development cost can hinder the market growth.
  • The outbreak of COVID-19 has positively impacted the small molecule drug discovery market. This is due to the increasing burden on the healthcare industry, which encouraged government to increase their health expenditure.
  • Rising trend of increasing small molecule-based pipeline drug can create lucrative opportunities for industry players in the projected timeline.
