Market outlook of the protein therapeutics market
The market research analyst predicts the global protein therapeutics market to grow steadily at a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period. Increased demand for and use of monoclonal antibodies is expected to drive the growth of the protein therapeutics market as it accounts for more than half of the protein therapeutics market. The monoclonal antibodies can be prepared specific to any cell surface or extracellular target. These antibodies are being used in radioimmunotherapy and antibody-directed enzyme prodrug therapy. Monoclonal antibodies are also used in the formulation of various biopharmaceutical drugs for the treatment of different diseases such as cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and UC.
The availability of favorable reimbursement policies in this market is expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period. Protein therapeutics are expensive and cannot be afforded by all, but reimbursement of the diagnostic kits and biologic drugs are expected to fuel the market during the forecast period. Plans like the public reimbursement programs reduce the financial burden of treatments. The reimbursement status of drugs varies from region to region, with factors such as lack of cost-effectiveness impeding the coverage.
