Peptide Synthesis Market Revenue to Cross USD 5.1 billion by 2035

Published: February 2024

According to a recently published report by Roots Analysis, the growing demand for peptide therapeutics and preference for outsourcing of peptide manufacturing is driving the peptide synthesis market growth.

Peptide Synthesis Industry Overview

The global peptide synthesis market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2024-2035, reaching USD 5.1 billion by 2035

The synthetic peptide APIs find various applications in medicine, immunology, and molecular biology. Given the numerous advantages of peptide therapeutics, their demand has increased considerably, resulting in significant growth of peptide synthesis market. The rise in demand for peptide-based therapeutics, coupled with the requirement of complex manufacturing process and substantial capital investments for facility, has prompted the peptide therapeutic developers to increasingly outsource their manufacturing operations to contract manufacturers, which offer several benefits, such as access to large capacity, well-equipped manufacturing facility, scientists and experts of peptide synthesis field.

Market Drivers

Over the years, the interest of pharmaceutical industry in peptide drugs has increased substantially owing to the various benefits and success of such therapeutics in the treatment of cancer, diabetes, HIV infection, and multiple sclerosis. This has further led to increased investments, and R&D activity in this domain. Additionally, the growing pipeline of peptide therapeutics has led to considerable increase in demand for peptide-based APIs. To overcome the shortage of in-house production capacity, pharmaceutical companies are increasingly seeking support from peptide contract manufacturers to produce peptide-based drug products / substances, which is likely to drive the market forward in the coming years.

Market Restraints

Peptide synthesis and peptide API manufacturing is a complex, multi-step process which requires various chemical synthesis steps and efficient purification methods for eliminating impurities from the final product. Additionally, the lack of cost-effective, scalable and sustainable technologies that are specifically designed for peptide API production, concerns related to good quality and stringent regulatory guidelines pose several challenges for the manufacturers.

Growth Factors

The increase in demand for GLP-1-mediated drugs has primarily resulted in substantial growth of the market. This can be attributed to the fact that GLP-1 medications were fundamentally designed for the treatment of type II diabetes, however, the use of these drugs led to significant weight loss in patients, leading to a surge in their demand. Additionally, rise in the number of clinical trials and regulatory approval of peptide therapeutics in recent years, has drawn various stakeholders to invest largely in research and development of these peptide drugs. Considering the increasing pace of innovation and research activity, the peptide synthesis market is anticipated to witness a steady growth in the foreseen future.
