Originator Small Molecule Drug Market Outlook (2023 to 2033)

A medication with a low molecular weight that is simple to enter cells. Once inside the cells, it can influence other molecules like proteins and possibly lead to the death of cancer cells. This contrasts with medications that are difficult to enter cells due to their high molecular weight.

Although triggering protein-protein interactions is a difficult task, new medical discoveries suggest that tiny chemicals that deliberately bring two or more protein molecules together for improved or novel biological impact may hold promise. One of the "holy grails" of pharmacology is the suppression of protein-protein interactions using small molecules because of the significance of these interactions in controlling a variety of intracellular activities.

According to the latest research by Fact.MR, the market is set to behold a huge upsurge in demand over the assessment period of 2021-2031. Sales of small molecule drugs gaining traction lately will witness a steady push in short-term and optimistic growth outlook over the long-run forecast period with growth opportunities of more than US$ 200 Mn during the same time frame.

The dominance of biologics due to their efficacy over the small molecule drug limits the opportunity, however increasing R&D expenditure provides momentum.

What are impelling factors for market growth?

Evolving need for drug targets to treat cancer, epilepsy, diabetes, and various other dreaded diseases is set to provide lucrative opportunities for small-molecule drug demand. The use of diverse tiny molecule drugs varying from different humane ailments such as cold, cough, and fever attracts huge customer engagement and makes the market get propelled.

Sales of the product go through a huge upward surge, which remained a longstanding pool of opportunities for manufacturers. The rising demand meant the actors often spend huge reserves on enhancing production and capacity expansion.

Since most pharmaceutical companies invest heavily in the research and development of new drug formulations for the treatment of complex diseases, the market is projected to grow significantly.

Region-wise Insights

North America to remain dominant

At present in 2023 the total expenses on health in the US region amounts to USD 4.7 billion. The United States is expected to spend 6.7 trillion dollars on healthcare overall by the year 2030. The United States is one of the world's biggest markets. During the time frame 2023-2033, the US market is expected to emulate a huge push. As the demand for drugs to treat various diseases is on a highly increasing note, the market is expected to show huge growth in the coming years.

Canada also project huge spending on the development of medicines of small molecules owing to the inclination of governing bodies towards huge expenditure allocation to the healthcare system and to facilitate various drugs to treat different diseases. North America is a region with highly favorable reimbursements to remain the most dominating globally.

European market outlook

The COVID-19 crisis has had a major effect on many EU countries, leading to a decline in economic activity. Healthcare spending in the EU, as in the US and Canada, tends to fuel demand.

In view of the challenges faced due to the novel coronavirus, most European countries have maintained a sturdy healthcare expenditure in 2020. France with high healthcare expenditure to invest huge reserves in the development of tiny molecule and direct the regional market to reach greater heights creating opportunities for product manufacturers and suppliers.

For manufacturers and suppliers, the strong projections for Europe’s healthcare expenditure to develop effective products can be offset by the broader weakness of low efficacy in comparison with biologics. However, clinical trials and other development activities remain key pushing factors to draw steady demand in the long run.

Recent Developments

  • January 2023 - Roche Offered USD 554 million in bio bucks to in-need Kronos company for the discovery of a small-molecule pact. The businesses will work together on two first oncology drug development programs, each of which will focus on a transcription factor that Genentech has selected. Scientists are working to create proteins that can suppress transcription factors since they are thought to be the catalyst for cancer's initiation, growth, spread, and resistance.
  • March 2022- LifeMine and GlaxoSmithKline have signed a partnership for lead in small molecules. The companies aimed to detect leads for three human targets across distinct diseases. As part of the agreement, GSK will get access to LifeMine's Avatar-Rx genomic drug discovery platform, which will help it find small molecule leads for the targets it has chosen. The Avatar-Rx platform combines technologies for automation, high-throughput microbiology, data analytics, and machine learning.
  • January 2021- Ribometrix announced a collaboration with Genetech for the discovery and development of RNA-targeted small molecule therapeutics. The company is focused on leveraging the RNA structural expertise and capacity of analytics involved in various disease processes.
