Casein Peptone Market

2020 Analysis and Review: Casein Peptone Market by Application – Diagnostic Media Production, Industrial Fermentation, Biomass Production, Enzyme Production, and Vaccine Production for 2020 – 2030

About the Report

Casein peptone market is registering growth at a surging pace especially as countries from around the world engage in vaccine research to contain COVID-19. Future Market Insights (FMI) has forecast the market to continue exhibiting steady growth through 2030. Expansion of the pharmaceutical industry, which also is one of the key end users will create growth opportunities for the market. The report also studies hidden opportunities across key application segments, including diagnostic media production, industrial fermentation, and others.


The casein peptone market has been registering high demand from the expanding pharmaceutical industry. Casein peptone plays a crucial role in production of culture media for laboratory tests. As the diagnostic and pharmaceutical industry is expanding steadily, the demand for acid casein peptone, calcium casein peptone, and others is skyrocketing.

Furthermore, the rise in vaccine production process is creating growth opportunities for the market. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 172 countries and multiple candidate vaccines are engaged in discussions to potentially participate in COVAX while countries such as China, Russia, India, Japan, and others are starting with their vaccine production processes.

Casein peptone being an integral part of producing vaccines, is therefore gaining considerable traction. As casein peptone is required in the manufacturing of enzymes, toxins, and other biological products, the growth in biochemical industry is catering to the rising demand for casein peptone.

According to Future Market Insights (FMI), the global casein peptone market is set to grow at over 4% CAGR during the forecast period from the year 2020 to 2030.

Expansion of Pharmaceutical Industry Pushing Demand

Casein peptone is an enzymatic hydrolysate of casein that is used in preparation of microbiological culture media in laboratory settings. The main constituents of peptone are nutrients such as amino acids which enhance the growth of microorganisms. For instance, Casein Peptone CM65 offered by A. Costantino & C. spa D is highly effective in increasing the production of microorganism biomass. Due to this property, casein peptone is increasingly used in pharmaceutical industry.

Additionally, the increasing number of vaccine production processes around the world is f fuelling the demand from pharmaceutical industries. This trend is unlikely to slow down especially since the world today is facing repeated onslaught of various epidemics and pandemics. Given the scenario, the demand for casein peptone will continue rising in the pharmaceutical sector through the forecast period.

Increasing Use in Industrial Fermentation

In industrial fermentation process, microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, eukaryotic cells such as insect cells, Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells, and others are used to make useful products for humans. In order to execute fast and efficient fermentation process, micro-organisms require sufficient nutrients. Casein peptone contains amino acids, which are the natural source of nitrogen, which speeds up the growth of micro-organisms to enhance the fermentation process.

Various types of fermented products in food and general industry such as fermented foods (cultured milk, yoghurt, kimchi, and others), extracellular metabolites (ethanol, vitamins, citric acid, lysine, glutamic acid, and others), and others require casein peptone in their production process. This will significantly aid the expansion of the market.

Key Challenges

As casein peptone is costly, it is yet to be widely adopted by small to medium-scale pharmaceutical and biochemical companies and other institutes. Furthermore, casein peptone has disadvantages such as the presence of casein peptone interferes with the isolation of various products such as specific carbohydrates, enzymes, toxins, and others.

Also, the variation between the peptones even of the same brand often comes in the ways of ensuring production efficiency. These factors could hamper the growth of the market to an extent.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had its negative impact on the market as well, causing decline in demand in earlier part of 2020, which is going to last till the year 2021.
