Detailed Regional Analysis

The drug discovery services market is regionally segmented into the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East & Africa. The Americas is expected to retain dominance over the drug discovery services market. This can be attributed to the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and high healthcare expenditure. The Center for Disease Control & Prevention recently stated that approximately 92.1 million adults have at least one type of cardiovascular disease. 

Europe is expected to follow behind the Americas and garner the second-largest share in the drug discovery services market over the forecast period. Such growth can be credited to the growing financial support provided by the government towards the research and development as well as the patent expiration of various blockbuster drugs. Different biologic drugs such as Genentech’s Rituxan, Abbott & Eisai’s Humira, and J&J’s Remicade are expected to lose their patent protection soon.
