Agarose Resin Market to Prosper at 10% CAGR through 2030; Short-term Rapid Growth Expected on Back of COVID-19 Vaccine Demand


by Team Fact.MR

Rising demand for agarose resin can be largely attributed to vaccine purification and the biotherapeutics sector. Moreover, agarose resins are used in downstream processes in the manufacturing of oncological, rheumatological, and a number of other protein-based drugs. Growing demand for protein-based drugs across the globe is set to bolster the stance of the agarose resin market over the coming decade.

Talking about the current COVID-19 crisis, demand for vaccines is high with a spike in cases and related deaths across the globe. Rapid vaccine trials in India and other countries is set to create the need for vaccine purification, which is set to cascade the effect to the downstream raw material, i.e. agarose resin. Prices of agarose resins declined by nearly twofold in Q2 of FY2019, and has spiked back to the same price level in FY2020, owing to rapid rise in demand. In sort, the COVID-19 outbreak is set to provide positive growth to the agarose resin market in short-term forecast period.

As per Fact.MR, the global agarose resin market is forecast to witness rapid growth at a CAGR of around 10% over the forecast period of 2020-2030.

  • East Asia and South Asia & Oceania agarose resin markets are set to grow at a rapid pace, together accounting for a little less than two-fifth of demand by 2030.

“The COVID-19 pandemic set to provide a short-term boost to growth of the agarose resins market,” says a Fact.MR analyst.

Higher Sunk Costs in Market Set to Hinder New Entrants

The agarose resin market is highly consolidated in nature, with key players such as Agarose Beads Technologies, Cube Biotech, Purolite, Bio rad Laboratories, GE Healthcare, Bio Works Technologies holding a major market share. Though the market is highly consolidated, high sunk costs are observed for new entrants, as the market is not perfectly competitive and lies in monopolistic areas carrying strong production protocols and stringent protection of formulation of agarose resins. Therefore, to get a hand on technology related to agarose resins, new entrants should leverage contract manufacturing or can opt for investing in R&D.
