Global Agarose Resin Market Overview

The global agarose resin market has observed rapid growth at a CAGR of 8.7% over the past half-decade. However, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has provided a boost to market growth. Unlike other markets, the agarose resin market grew twofold in the 2nd and 3rd quarters as compared to the same quarters in the preceding year, i.e. FY2019.

Demand rise can largely be attributed to a spike in research activities in the fields of virology and biopharmaceuticals. Agarose resins are extensively used in the downstream process of protein and DNA separation by the method called electrophoresis. Separation of DNA, RNA, or protein majorly takes place through electric current, which mobilizes molecules into the gel in the process of chromatography.

Agarose resins are also utilized in the form of beads, which are easy to use than the natural form. Furthermore, agarose resins are cross-linked with other materials to enhance the selectivity of protein or DNA in the chromatographic separation process.

Moreover, the COVID-19 outbreak is set to provide a short- medium-term boost to the expansion of the agarose resin market size, owing to its rapid adoption and utilization in the process of vaccine purification and biomolecule separation. On a regional stance, the South Asia and Oceania regions are set to observe higher demand for agarose resins, owing to rampant trials of COVID-19 vaccines in India. All in all, the agarose resin market is set to experience rapid growth at a CAGR of nearly 10% over the long-term forecast period.

Agarose Resin Market End Use Insights

Chromatography is extensively used in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry. Agarose resin is used to prepare large quantities of extremely pure materials and further utilized to analyze trace compounds in purified materials. In biopharmaceuticals, agarose resins and beads are used to effectively separate selective protein or DNA for further processing or testing.

Agarose resins or gels are used in gel electrophoresis for the separation of large molecules such as DNA, RNA, and others. Moreover, choice of agarose resins in accordance with the concentration of the agarose, such as 2%, 4%, and 6%, is set to alter the overall porosity and adsorption levels of agarose resins. Therefore, choice and utilization of agarose resins with respect to selectivity and binding capacity is set to vary with respect to the application in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry. All in all, rising demand for various concentrations of agarose resins for pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical applications is set to provide long-term thrust to the growth of the agarose resin market.
