The non-cleavable linker section is expected to observe the highest 12.5% CAGR, during the forecast period. Antibody drug conjugates including non-cleavable linkers are extra dependent on the target cells' biology. On-cleavable linkers contain greater plasma constancy than cleavable linkers. This can assist to improve the healing indicator.

Condition Insight

The myeloma section held the leading 49.4% revenue share and directed the market, in 2020. The issues that affect the development of the market are antibody drug conjugates.
