Protein A Resins Market to Witness CAGR of 8.2% Increase in Value Share During the Forecast Period 2016 – 2026

VALLEY COTTAGE, N.Y. – Protein A resin is a surface protein that occurs naturally in the cell wall of the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus. It is used in affinity chromatography owing to its ability to bind proteins such as antigens, immunoglobulins and others. The increasing demand for affinity chromatography, coupled with the rising number of procedures for separating biochemical mixtures, is the prime driver of the market. The growing demand for affinity chromatography procedures is a direct outcome of the growth of the biotechnology industry, particularly the development of antibodies, enzyme and protein-based therapies & drugs. Protein A resin is in high demand in the research and development sectors owing to the high intensity of affinity chromatography for the separation of antigens & antibodies, receptor & ligand or protein & nucleic acids during the course of research. Another driver of the protein A resin market is the key advantages of protein A resin-based affinity chromatography such as high selectivity, very rapid mass transport, superior capacity vs. flow rate, the separation of complex mixtures and the final highly purified product.

Global Protein A Resin Market: Overview

The global protein A resin market size is generating lucrative growth owing to the rapid adoption of biologics, growth of the biopharmaceutical sector and the growing research expenditure of biopharmaceutical industries. Advancements in manufacturing technology, such as recombination technology, have resulted in the growing volume and concurrent growth of the global protein A resin market. At present, most protein A resin is produced by recombinant Escherichia coli and engineered protein A resin modified to suit and increase usability in industrial applications. This has resulted in higher yields and a reduction in cost.

According to FMI, based on the applications, the antibody purification segment accounted for over 77.06% revenue share in the overall protein A resin market in 2016. The immunoprecipitation segment in Protein A resin is expected to grow at an impressive 9.9% CAGR during the forecast period. Growing research and development expenditure is the prime driver of the immunoprecipitation segment, particularly immunoglobulins.

According to FMI, based on end users, the biopharmaceutical manufacturers in segment in Protein A resin accounted for over 77.7% revenue share in the overall protein A resin market in 2016. The clinical research laboratories segment in protein A resin is expected to grow at an impressive 9.9% CAGR, followed by academic institutes at 6.9%. The increasing market of biologics, owing to the growing incidence of diseases such as cancer and autoimmune diseases such as arthritis, diabetes & others, are the demographic drivers of the global protein A resin market.

However, the high cost of protein A resin, lack of standardisation, non-transparency of the final composition by vendors and the poor substitution of products manufactured by different vendors are some of the factors restraining the growth of protein A resin market. Moreover, in terms of performance, protein A resin is highly susceptible to impurity and contamination, owing to which it has poor robustness.

The developed regions of North America and Europe are expected to possess a larger market equity and share as compared to the developing regions of Asia Pacific Excluding Japan, China, & South Korea owing to ecological research, the presence of large players and the high expenditure on research & development. However, the growing economies of China and India are expected to be the major drivers of the Asia Pacific protein A resin market owing to their large population base. Japan is another attractive market owing to its large research expenditure and the larger adoption of biologics owing to increasing geriatric population and large income. The rising disposable income in Asia Pacific is expected to surge the demand for more advanced protein A resin products.
