Read Report Overview:

In terms of application, the recombinant proteins segment held a major market share in 2017. High reliance on microbial systems for recombinant protein production contributed toward the leading share of the segment. Increase in investment in research activities and introduction of new protein therapeutics have significantly contributed to the development of recombinant therapeutic antibodies and proteins. Moreover, rise in the number of clinical trials in the pharmaceutical industry have boosted the segment in past few years. The recombinant proteins segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period, owing to an increased focus on developing innovative fusion protein and antibody-drug conjugates products.

Based on end-user, the biopharmaceutical companies segment accounted for a major market share in 2017. Well-equipped infrastructure and strong expertise have led to the dominant share of the segment. Biopharmaceutical companies such as Shire plc, AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis, and Amgen have a wide portfolio of biological drugs. These companies are investing in the development of new biotherapeutics. With near-term patent expiry of blockbuster biologicals, biosimilars and biobetters are estimated to enter the market. This is expected to increase the adoption of microbial fermentation systems among biopharmaceutical companies. Furthermore, these key manufacturers are expanding their operations in emerging regions such as Asia Pacific and Latin America for better market access and regulatory compliance.
