Proteins are the largest and most important biomolecules in a living organism, as they are vital to the functioning of an organism. Once they are formed within a cell, proteins interact with other biomolecules and carry out roles to keep the cell alive. Therefore, more importance is given to research the protein binding mechanism through specialized fields of studies, such as proteomics and protein chemistry.

Most of these techniques focus on the ability to specifically tag proteins by creating genetic fusions, and thereby, imparting distinctive properties for selective protein visualization, manipulation, and entrapment within complex biochemical environments. Various strategies are used to carry out successful protein labeling.

Key Market Trends

Fluorescence Microscopy is Expected to Dominate the Protein Labelling Market

A fluorescent tag, also known as a fluorescent label is a molecule that is attached chemically to aid in the detection of a biomolecule such as a protein, antibody, or amino acid. Fluorescent tagging, or labeling, uses a reactive derivative of a fluorescent molecule known as a fluorophore. The fluorophore selectively binds to a specific region or functional group on the target molecule and can be attached chemically or biologically.

Protein labeling is currently being widely utilized. Protein labeling uses a short tag to minimize disruption of protein folding and function. These fluorescent proteins can used in a broad range of applications including immunochemistry, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), cell tracing, receptor labeling and fluorescence spectroscopy to name a few. Thus owing to the increasing applications the market for protein labeling is exepcted to grow further in the future as well.

North America is Expected to Dominate the Market

The North American countries of the United States (US) and Canada have a developed and well-structured health care system. These systems also encourage research and development.

Protein Labelling as a field of research is also growing in this region due to its increasing array of applications. These countries also have policies that favor such research. These policies encourage global players to enter the US and Canada. Therefore as a result, these countries enjoy the presence of many global market players. Furthermore the increasing adoption in personalized medicine and genomic sequencing is projected to contribute toward the region’s growth in revenue throughout the forecast period.

Competitive Landscape

Majority of the protein labeling are being manufactured by the major key players. Market leaders with more funds for research and better distribution system have established their position in the market. Moreover, Asia-pacific is witnessing an emergence of some small players due to the rise of awareness. This has also helped the market grow.
