In vitro ADME testing services market is likely to be worth USD 2.2 billion by 2030, growing at an annualized rate of ~9.8%, predicts Roots Analysis

 With increasing cases of drug failure, due to problems associated with pharmacokinetic profiles of candidate therapies, absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME) properties and inherent toxicity, industry players are actively looking for more advanced solutions.

Roots Analysis has announced the addition of “In Vitro ADME Testing Services Market, 2019-2030” report to its list of offerings.

According to the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA), less than 10% of investigational new drug (IND) candidates progress beyond the submission of a new drug application (NDA); this implies that majority of the drug / therapy candidates fail to reach the market owing to unacceptable safety and efficacy profiles and the problems associated with their pharmacokinetic profiles, ADME properties and inherent toxicity. ADME studies are considered to be critical in establishing the safety and efficacy of drug candidates.
