This market is currently led by North America. Furthermore, of the overall R&D expenditure, the contribution has increased by emerging biotechnology companies to drug development by 80 percent since 2018, but on the contrary, the large pharmaceutical companies' contribution has declined due to their focus shift on learner portfolios.
