(PharmaNewsWire.Com, October 06, 2021 ) According to the new market research report “Protein Crystallization and Crystallography Market by Technology (NMR, X-Ray Crystallography), Product & Service (Instrument (Liquid Handling (Automated)), Consumable (Reagent, Microplate) End User, and Region – Global Forecast to 2025″, published by MarketsandMarkets™, the Protein Crystallization Market is projected to reach USD 1.7 billion by 2025 from USD 1.1 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 8.9% during the forecast period.
- In 2020, Calibre Scientific (US) acquired NeXtal Biotechnologies (Product Line of QIAGEN) (Netherlands) to strengthen its portfolio of structural biology solutions.
- In 2019, Charles River Laboratories (US) collaborated with CHDI Foundation (US) for the drug discovery and development of therapies for Huntington’s disease.
- In 2018, Bruker Corporation launched a new product, D8 DISCOVER Plus X-ray Diffraction (XRD).
The protein crystallization market is divided into five major regions, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. In 2019, North America accounted for the largest share of the global market, followed by Europe. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing investments in the development of structure-based drug designs, growing academic and government investments in genomics and proteomics research, and the rising demand for high-quality research tools.
The Americas and Europe are the established markets for protein crystallization & crystallography. The developing regions, including BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) countries, are expected to form the new revenue pockets for this market. A rise in the spending power of these countries is the major driver for the growth of crystallization of protein. With the advent of new technologies like cryo-crystallization, improved radiation sources, and more sensitive detectors, the protein crystallization and crystallography market will see a robust growth in the near future. The increasing and immediate need for high-resolution information on protein structures, increasing government funding, and increasing R&D in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological arenas are also factors driving the growth of the protein crystallization market. However, lack of qualified and experienced researchers and the highly time-consuming and expensive protein crystallization & crystallography process restricts the growth of the market to some extent.
The major companies in the Protein Crystallography Market are Rigaku Corporation (Japan), Hampton Research (US), Jena Bioscience GmbH (Germany), and Bruker Corporation (US).
The consumables segment accounted for the largest market share in 2019.
On the basis of product and service, the consumables segment accounted for the largest share of the Protein Crystallization Market in 2019. This can be attributed to a large number of reagent kits and microplates used in proteomics research and the increasing demand for miniature screening plates in automated liquid handlers.
The pharmaceutical companies segment accounted for the largest market share in 2019.
The pharmaceutical companies segment accounted for the largest share of the Protein Crystallography Market in 2019. This can be attributed to the increasing demand for protein-based drugs and the increasing demand for biologics in various application areas.
Protein Crystallization and Crystallography Market and Top technologies
X-ray crystallography - XRC is a widely used technology for protein analysis and provides data on protein structures at the atomic level, which serves to provide a greater understanding of protein function in terms of their interaction with other molecules, the ability to undergo conformational changes and to perform catalysis in the presence of enzymes. The components used during X-ray crystallographic analysis include protein crystals, X-ray generators, and electronic X-ray detectors.
NMR Spectroscopy - NMR spectroscopy is a complementary technology to X-ray crystallography, used to determine a protein structure. In contrast to X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy uses proteins in soluble forms.
