Description: Proteins exhibit high specificity and less immunogenicity and are widely used as therapeutic agents in the treatment of various disorders and diseases. There are more than 200 protein-based products currently being marketed; 90% of them are used as therapeutics. In order to improve their clinical potential, second generation recombinants are being developed, each exhibiting improved efficiency and potency depending on their applications. The global protein engineering technologies market (2012-2017) report analyses the market by technology, products, applications, and geography. It also includes recent technology trends, patents, and funding analysis. In addition, it also covers factors driving and restraining the growth of the market and market scenario in the U.S., Europe, Asia, and Rest of the World (RoW). The protein engineering market is driven by the need for drugs with improved efficiency and specificity, technological capabilities, rise of antibody based drugs, and steady growth in the therapeutic market. With growing incidences of cancer, autoimmune disorders, and infectious disease, spurt of new opportunities for growth of the market is expected by the end of this decade. However, development costs, stringent regulatory issues, and risk of failure of the drug in the testing phase restraints the growth of the market. Further, the availability of generics and patent infringements is posing a threat to the market.
