Market Insight on Artificial Intelligence

The AI in Life Sciences Market was valued at USD 902.1 million in 2019 by Mordor Intelligence and is projected to expand at an impressive 20 percent compound annual growth rate in the period 2020 to 2024. Yet despite the massive hype and enthusiasm around artificial intelligence’s propensity to positively disrupt the entire pharma and healthcare spaces, confusion still abounds when it comes to understanding exactly what this technology is and how it functions.

De-risking Drug Discovery with Artifical Intelligence

On the supply side, AI appears to herald the prospect of de-risking the drug discovery process and doing away with many of the traditional time-consuming approaches at a juncture when drug development had been becoming financially unsustainable and clinical research organisations (CROs) had been systematically failing to improve operational efficiency. 

Rethinking Healthcare Provision with AI

As data and information proliferate at an exponential pace, many industries have turned to artificial intelligence to make sense of this information and deliver meaningful insights that can enhance performance. This is certainly the case for the healthcare sector, where the technology augurs nothing less than a paradigm shift towards ‘industrial medicine’ and a thorough optimization of care pathways towards better disease management.

Challenges to AI in Life Sciences

With so many wild predictions being bandied around about AI’s potential to radically transform healthcare for the better, it is easy to lose sight of the fact that materialization of that dream will be far from easy. Indeed, the task a hand can seem quite formidable. Most pharma companies’ existing IT infrastructures are based on legacy systems that were simply not designed with AI in mind: their data, if stored at all, is often kept in unwieldy free form and their systems lack interoperability.

Life Sciences’ Growing Demand for AI Assets

Digital health deal values in biopharma jumped to USD 6.4 billion in 2019, largely thanks to software company Dassault Systemes Americas Corp.’s USD 5.9 billion acquisition of health tech company Medidata Solutions, according to analysis by S&P Global Market Intelligence.
