Research Antibodies Market Size up to 2030 – Quantitative Research by QYResearch Medical

The research antibodies market is projected to grow at a rate of 5.9% in terms of value, from USD 3.35 Billion in 2019 to reach USD 5.33 Billion by 2030. The growing application of research antibodies in oncology is playing a major role in boosting the market growth. Cancer has a significant impact on society in the US and across the globe.

It has been estimated that 1,735,350 new cancer cases were diagnosed in the US, and 609,640 people suffered death from the disease. The number of new incidences of cancer is 439.2 per 100,000 men and women annually, and the number of cancer-related morbidities is 163.5 per 100,000 men and women annually. Moreover, it has been estimated that in 2019, 15,270 children and adolescents in the age range of 0-19 years were diagnosed with cancer, out of which 1,790 suffered death owing to the disease. In the year 2019, an estimated USD 147.30 billion was spent on cancer care in the US.

The market is witnessing an increasing demand, attributed to the growth of the biopharmaceutical industry. The biopharmaceutical industry is witnessing considerable growth in the past couple of years. The overall yearly revenue generation has risen from approximately USD 4.40 billion in the year 1990 to around USD 275.00 billion in the year 2018, experiencing growth of 6,250.0%, with industry contributing to more than 25.0% of the overall pharmaceutical market.

Rising research activities in the field of stem cells is a significant factor driving the growth of the market. Cord blood stem cells find application in the treatment of more than 80 blood-related ailments, such as Sickle Cell Disease. It is projected that over 27 million babies across the globe are born with some kind of blood disorder. As per the World Health Organization, in 2008, 100,000 children were found to be suffering from thalassemia in India.

However, cost-prohibitive research antibodies and issues related to the quality of nontherapeutic antibodies may create hindrances in the growth of the market in the upcoming years.

Product Outlook:

Secondary antibodies assist in the detection, categorization, or purification of target antigens by binding it to the primary antibodies. As a significant proportion of primary antibodies are produced in a few host animal species, with approximately all of the antibodies belonging to the IgG class, it is economical for producers to supply prepared secondary antibodies that are appropriate for a majority of approaches and detection systems.

Antibody Type Outlook:

The monoclonal antibodies contributed to a larger market share in 2019. The application of monoclonal antibodies is in the treatment of diseases by targeting a specific antigen in the patient’s body. Applications for monoclonal antibodies comprise cancer, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, cardiovascular disease, transplant rejection, Crohn’s disease, psoriasis, and ulcerative colitis, among others. In these diseases, the monoclonal antibody interferes with the activities of a receptor, which is responsible for the development of the disease being treated.

Polyclonal antibodies are a combination of heterogeneous, which are commonly produced by different B cell clones in the body and are produced by injecting an immunogen into the body of an animal. These antibodies can identify and bind to several epitopes of a single antigen.

Technology Outlook:

Immunohistochemistry held the second-largest market share in 2019. Immunohistochemistry is an advanced method of histopathology. Usually, immunohistochemistry is not used in the beginning but is further used when regular/routine histological testing is found to be insufficient for the purpose of diagnosis. This technology labels a protein by using primary antibodies and then deploys a secondary antibody to bind it with the primary one.

The benefits of immunohistochemistry comprise it can be used on fresh/frozen tissues, it is readily available, relatively economical, no involvement of live infectious agents, and least risk to human health, among others.

End-Users Outlook:

The pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry contributed to the largest market share in 2019 and is likely to grow at a rate of 6.4% in the forecast period, owing to an extensive application of research antibodies in the process of drug development for recognizing and quantifying biomarkers, and in several other analytical procedures.

The research antibodies mar is witnessing an increasing demand, attributed to the growth of the pharmaceutical industry. The worldwide pharmaceutical market is estimated to surpass USD 1.50 trillion by the year 2023, increasing from USD 1.20 trillion in the years 2018, at an AGR of about 3.0%-6.0%. This increase is likely to be in parallel with the increase in the number of launched products that are estimated to be 54 in the year 2023.

Regional Outlook

The market in the North American region held the largest market share in 2019 and is estimated to witness a growth rate of 5.2% in the forecast period. The market dominance of the region is attributed to the growing prevalence of blood diseases and neurological disease, the presence of leading market players and increased investment in R&D activities, rising demand for personalized medicine, and technological advancements in proteomics research, among others.
