  • Covid-19 Impact On Small Molecule Cancer Drug Market


The small molecule drug centric approach has transformed the global cancer therapy market and has helped to decrease the mortality rate  by overcoming the drawbacks of the traditional therapies such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy and others. The fundamental approach of using big molecular based drugs for the cancer treatment has now been shifted towards to small molecule drugs driven by multiple advantages over traditional or large molecules based drugs. The arrival of small molecule drugs in the cancer therapeutics landscape is not less than a massive breakthrough. From different radiation waves to immune cells, all have got settled in the cancer therapeutics market but the advent of small molecule drugs is however an accomplishment that is greater than any other major discovery in the cancer therapeutics market.

An important parameter that should be associated with any of the cancer treatment is its specificity. Being specific to the cancer target is one of the most requisite and fundamental premise that decides whether the cancer therapy will result in inclination or declination of the mortality rate. The small molecule drug approach is quite specific and target oriented in functionality and has achieved interest of all stake holders from global cancer therapy market. The basic approach is to search for a specific molecular target and undergo the elimination of the cancer cells from the body. The small molecule cancer drug methodology is conceptually more specific than any of the available traditional non-targeted therapy as it provides a better target specificity and better reach to the cancer cells.


Other than all the commercially available cancer treatments, small molecule drugs are on the urge to provide a treatment strategy that has more success rate for overall survival. Many parameters are associated with the small molecule drugs that have made them quite promising for the use. Some of the parameters include: molecular size, availability, site of action, cell permeability and mode of administration. All of these factors are somehow responsible for the success that small molecule drugs have achieved in short period of time.

As of now, small molecule drugs are considered as a special cancer therapy due to the advantages that are associated with it. In today’s cancer therapeutics world, there are two therapies that undergo specific molecular targeting: monoclonal antibody and small molecule drugs. But there is also one parameter that is making small molecule drugs more preferable than the monoclonal antibodies is the size of small molecule drugs making it permeable to plasma membrane or cell membrane. From the different studies that have been performed under the cancer research domain, it has been confirmed that in case of different cancer types, there are receptors for target that are present inside the cell membrane. The presence of target inside the cell membrane makes it difficult for other drugs to penetrate or target the desired receptor. At this position, the usage of small molecule drugs is necessary as it has the ability to cross the cell membrane due to small size and target the cancer receptor that is present inside the cell membrane.


The small molecule drugs have the ability to target different mechanisms through which cancer develops and grows. An important mechanism through cancer is developed is by controlling all the growth factors required for the growth and development of the cells. As it has been well-studied that there are certain growth factors that are responsible for different mechanisms in the body and by controlling the mechanism of growth factor, cancer can easily surpass all the factors that can lead to its eradication.


The future market scenario looks promising for the research, development and commercial viability of small molecule based cancer drugs. The basic targeting advantage along with the dominance of small molecule drugs in cancer clinical pipeline will drive the global small molecule cancer drug market in coming years. The market is expected to double its revenue to US$ 130 Billion by 2026 and will continue to outperform the others available drug therapies for the treatment of cancer malignancies.
