Protein Expression Market Overview

The global protein expression market was valued at around US$ 2.2 Bn at the end of 2021. The market is projected to register a 7.5% CAGR and top a valuation of US$ 4.7 Bn by 2032.

“Increasing applications in research and clinical procedures and rising demand for therapeutic proteins in research applications is expected to uplift the protein expression market growth.”

Protein expression is a biotechnological technique that manipulates gene expression in any organism to produce and obtain particular proteins. Because it expresses a significant amount of recombinant genes, protein expression has gained importance in the field of biotechnology research.

One of the earliest protein expression platforms was the prokaryotic system via Escherichia coli, which was then followed by additional protein expression platforms like algae, insect cells, yeast systems, and mammals.

Biochemistry, molecular biology, and protein research are the fields that depend on functioning proteins for their analysis; thus, protein expression has emerged as a crucial laboratory tool. The technology can also deliver the enzymes or substrates required for additional analysis. Research kits are available that include a variety of chemically competent bacterial cells, including E. coli cells, that are ideal for protein expression and transformation.
