Global Protein Engineering Market is anticipated to reach USD 3.09 billion by 2025. Protein engineering is a method to design novel proteins or enzymes with the intention to have functional properties. Protein engineering is primarily based on the use of recombinant DNA technology to alter the amino acid sequences in terms of affinity, solubility, activity, resistance, etc.
The factors that propel the growth of the Protein Engineering industry include increasing occurrence of lifestyle associated diseases, increasing consciousness regarding healthcare, increasing healthcare expenditure, and growing adoption of protein-based drugs. On the other hand, there are factors that may hamper the growth of the market including lack of skilled expertise, maintenance, and high price of tools as well as instruments utilized during protein engineering. Protein Engineering Market is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR of 15.9% in the upcoming period as the scope, product types, and its applications are increasing across the globe.
The market may be explored by product type, technology, protein type, end users, and geography. The market may be explored by product type as services and software, instruments, and reagents. The “Instruments” segment dominated the market in 2016 and is anticipated to maintain its dominance in the forecast period.
The key technologies that could be explored in the Protein Engineering industry include Irrational Protein Design, and Rational Protein Design. The “Rational Protein Design” segment dominated the market in 2016 and is anticipated to maintain its dominance by 2025 owing to highly accepted technology in the market in 2014. This huge share could be ascribed to its advantages over irrational protein design technology.
The Protein Engineering Market could be explored based on protein type as Insulin, Erythropoietin, Vaccines, Monoclonal Antibodies, Interferon, Growth hormones, Colony Stimulating factor, Coagulation Factor, Others (Follicle Stimulating Hormones, Enzyme Replacement, and Interleukins). The “Monoclonal Antibodies” segment dominated the market in 2016 and is anticipated to maintain its dominance by 2025 owing to increase in acceptance for several treatments such as autoimmune diseases, and cancer.
Protein Engineering industry could be analyzed by end user as contract research organizations, academic research institutes, and pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies. The “Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Companies” segment dominated the market. The factors contributing to the dominant share include increase in R&D funds in the pharmaceutical segment, and technological advancements in protein engineering.
North America is anticipated to hold the major share of the Protein Engineering Market.
