Protein Stability Analysis Market Growth & Trends
The global protein stability analysis market size is expected to reach USD 2.0 billion by 2026, expanding at a CAGR of 10.8%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Protein stability analysis is an essential step in therapeutics stability studies that enables the assessment of factors causing aggregation and degradation of proteins. This analysis keeps a check on the biologic activity, quality, and product safety of biopharmaceuticals. The recent approvals of recombinant protein therapeutics increase the demand for this analysis during the drug development programs.
Rising R&D in the biopharmaceuticals arena has pronounced the demand for protein stability protocols. The drug manufacturers are adopting the stability-indicating methods for degradation pathway analysis and stress testing for the development of effective and safe therapeutics. Moreover, government agencies are encouraging the drug safety programs by raising funds in the field of proteomics industry, which in turn, surge the adoption of stability analysis.
For instance, in January 2018, funding of USD 18 million from the Genome Canada and Genome BC supported the protein research of the University of Victoria, Canada. Besides, key companies are also entering into collaborations with the venture capitalists for funds to expand their stability analysis portfolio.
Ionic liquids are extensively applied in biological systems as environmentally friendly solvents. It is crucial to analyze the effect of ionic liquids over protein stability as it is helpful in the analysis of biological reaction processes. A study published in April 2019, evaluated the thermodynamics of protein stability in ionic liquids by the utilization of Fluorine-19 nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Such studies are expected to increase the adoption of protein stability techniques over the forecast period.
