Proteins are the basic building blocks of the body and are capable of performing a variety of functions such as DNA replication, responding to stimuli, transportation of molecules, catalyzing metabolic reactions, and other physiological processes. Altering, modifying, or reconstructing proteins can facilitate a diverse range of diagnosis and t6raetment development. Protein engineering is a field of science which involves the synthesis of new proteins or amendment in existing ones to bring about desired healthcare outcomes. Protein engineering has evolved to become an imperative tool in pharmaceutical, green chemistry, and biotechnology industry. Market Research Future (MRFR) has published an in-depth report on the global protein engineering market, stating that the market is likely to expand at CAGR of 6.2% over the forecast period of 2017-2023.
The protein engineering market is driven by accelerated R&D activities, and intensifying need to come up with new biological compounds and improve healthcare outcomes. The governments of multiple countries are extending support for protein engineering in the form of R&D grants, which is anticipated to bolster the growth of the market. However, the high cost of instruments used in protein engineering and the dearth of trained research personnel be obstructive to the growth of the market.
The protein engineering market has been segmented based on type, method, application, and end-user.
By type, the protein engineering market has been segmented into instrument, reagents, and services and software.
By method, the protein engineering market has been segmented into rational protein design and directed evolution.
By application, the protein engineering market has been segmented into food and detergent industries, environment applications, medical applications, biopolymer production, and nanobiotechnology.
By end-user, the protein engineering market has been segmented into academic research institutes, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology companies, and contract engineering organizations.
Region-wise, the protein engineering market has been segmented into North America, the Middle East & Africa (MEA), Europe, and Asia Pacific (APAC).
North America is the dominant protein engineering market. The expansion of the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry in the region is creating a supportive dais for the growth of the protein engineering market. In addition, the availability of technologically advanced devices and instruments for R&D activities is further supporting the growth of the market.
