Therapeutic Proteins Sought-after in Plant Derived Proteins Market; Demand from Biopharmaceutical Companies Holds over 50% Share: FMI

Feb 10,2020 | Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals and Medical devices

Production and commercialization of biopharmaceutical proteins with higher therapeutic efficacy have formed a progressive landscape that continues to push the growth of plant derived proteins market. A new Future Market Insights (FMI) report forecasts that the plant derived proteins market will experience a major upturn towards 2029, reaching a value of around US$ 185 Mn. Production of three main therapeutic protein classes, including antibodies, vaccines, and replacement proteins such as albumin, insulin, growth factors, and cytokines will remain industry’s prime focus area. Plant derived proteins are recognized as natural and environmentally-sustainable than microbial and mammalian cells. Owing to these benefits, there has been an increasing demand for such proteins from biopharmaceutical companies, as raw materials for therapeutic drug production, creating an absolute opportunity for growth of the plant derived proteins market.  

Key Takeaways of Plant Derived Proteins Market Study

  • The production of therapeutic proteins for disease treatment will gain traction, contributing more than 70% to global market revenues in 2029.
  • Owing to low setup cost, transient plant expression systems (carrot or tobacco) remains preferred among protein manufacturers.
  • Regenerative medicine-therapeutic agents continue to be the leading application area, on the back of their relatively cheap price point.
  • Biopharmaceutical companies represent the leading consumer industry of plant derived proteins, with over 50% share in market throughout the forecast period.
  • North America continues to lead, whereas East Asia holds the promise of lucrative opportunities, owing to several healthcare programs.

“Rising demand for passive immunization have led to development of new plant based platforms, which could transform and express recombinant therapeutic vaccines and antibodies more effectively with increased stability, high yield, and high quality,” says the FMI study.
