The protein expression market was valued at USD 1,654.0 million in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.5% to a USD 2,850.5 million market by 2022. Factors driving this market are the increasing prevalence of chronic disorders, technological advancements in the field of protein expression systems, and increasing funding for protein-based research. On the other hand, rising market consolidation and the high cost of protein expression reagents and instruments are restraining the growth of this market.

Mammalian cell expression systems segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The protein expression market is classified into insect cell expression systems; mammalian cell expression systems; prokaryotic expression systems, yeast expression systems; cell-free expression systems; and algal-based expression systems, on the basis of systems type. The mammalian cell expression system segment is expected to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the high adoption of these systems in the protein based reasech and therapeutic protein manufacturing as they have the capacity for post-translational modification and human protein-like molecular structure assembly.

Reagents segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The protein expression market is classified by products, into competent cells, expression vectors, instruments, reagents, and services. The reagents segment is expected to register highest growth rate during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increase in protein expression research activities and the large-scale production of antibodies and vaccines.

Increasing prevalence of chronic disorders to drive growth of the therapeutic applications segment
Based on application, the global protein expression market is segmented into therapeutic applications, industrial applications, and research applications. The therapeutic application segment is expected to register highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth in this segment is primarily attributed to increasing incidences of chronic disorders and the rising demand for therapeutic proteins.

The CROs end-user segment is expected to register high growth during the forecast period
The protein expression market is classified on the basis of end users into academic research institutes; contract research organizations (CROs); pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies; and other end users (food processing industry, detergent manufacturers, paper industry, leather industry, breweries, dairy industry, chemical industry, bioplastic industry, and cosmeceutical industry). The CROs segment is expected to register highest growth rate during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increase in outsourcing of pharmaceutical manufacturing/clinical trial processes.

North America is account for the largest regional segment in the market
Geographically, the protein expression systems market is dominated by North America, followed by Europe. The North American region is estimated to account for the largest share in 2017 and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. Growth in this market can be attributed to the presence of major key players in the region, technological advancements, growth in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, and rising prevalence of chronic diseases.
