Market share analysis of recombinant protein based on product type and region is provided in a nutshell in the above image. Under the product type segment, the growth factors sub-segment dominates with 21.3% market share in 2022.

What’s Driving Demand for Recombinant Protein?

“Evolving Generations of Recombinant Protein with Wide Applications Spur the Market Growth’’

Recombinant proteins are not only used in research but also used as a drug to treat various chronic diseases such as dwarfism, congestive heart failure, diabetes, cerebral apoplexy, myocardial infarction, multiple sclerosis, anemia, neutropenia, etc. There are almost more than 130 recombinant proteins that have been approved by US FDA to date. Though, more than 170 recombinant proteins are manufactured and are widely used in medicines across the world.

Moreover, recombinant protein generations came up with some improvements as compared to the previous generation. Such as first-generation recombinant proteins comprised of native structures of proteins, furthermore, the second generation encompassed proteins with enhanced properties such as specificity, biodistribution, and efficacy. Furthermore, the third generation of recombinant protein comprised new formulations and new routes of administration with higher efficacy and safety. Hence, product improvisation is the key contributor to the recombinant proteins market growth.

“Significant Rise of Research in Biologics led to Upsurge the Sale of Recombinant Proteins”

The wide growth of healthcare sector across the world supports the investment in research and development to introduce novel solutions for various diseases. The growth of recombinant proteins is directly proportional to the growth of healthcare sector and investment in biologics. Also, government funding led to amplifying the research activities in biotechnological businesses and academic institutes to bring innovations in recombinant proteins market.

The above-mentioned factors are anticipated to fuel the request for recombinant antibodies and recombinant human erythropoietin etc.

What Do Recombinant Protein Manufacturers Need to Watch Out for?

“Complexity of Protein, Its Purification and Protein Expression may Slowdown the Production”

The production of recombinant protein is a complex process owing to complex structure of a protein. For instance, the presence of GPI-anchor or transmembrane domains may mix the target proteins and plasma membranes, which reduces the yield of protein. In addition, the transmembrane is hydrophobic in nature which also disturbs the protein stability.

Additionally, aggregation and over-expression of the target protein may create unexpected physiological variations in the host cells which further results in making misfolded proteins as well as protein degradation by the enzyme protease of the host body.

Hence, process optimization and careful planning are the necessary factors in recombinant protein expression to create an appropriate host, culture duration, and condition. Thus, manufacturers need to watch out aforementioned factors to avoid hindrances in market growth.
