Peptide Synthesis Market

Market Leader - Peptide Synthesis Market

The global peptide synthesis market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. Growth in this market is driven by the increasing use of peptides in pharmaceutical drugs, increase in research activities and availability of funding for R&D, and the development of advanced automated peptide synthesizers. However, the lack of a unified set of regulations for therapeutic peptides and the high cost of instruments are expected to restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period.

The global peptide synthesis market is a competitive market, with Thermo Fisher Scientific (US), Merck KGaA (Germany), Kaneka Corporation (Japan), GenScript Biotech Corporation (China), and Bachem Holding AG (Switzerland) together accounting for ~30-40% of the global market.
