Market Overview

The glycomics market is expected to register a CAGR of 13.9% during the forecast period with the increasing research and development activities about glycomes and emerging technology for analysis of glycans and proteomes. Glycans, generally present on the cell surface, plays a very crucial role in the body system. They are responsible for many hereditary diseases and has a vital role in cancer development. Erythropoietin is a biological product used in anti-viral therapy and has three N-glycans and one O-glycan chain. Furthermore, in 2017, Sciex launched “Fast Glycan Labelling and Analysis Kit.” It saves time and effort for sample preparation, mostly used in the quantitative estimation of N-glycan. Hence, these factors are expected to drive the glycomics market growth. But the high cost of products related to glycomes may obstruct the glycomes market growth.

Scope of the Report

As per the scope of the report, Glycomics is the study of glycomes, a sugar chain found in organisms either as a free chain or as a complex molecule. Glycomics is a subset of the field of glycobiology that aims to identify the structure and function of the complete set of glycans (the glycome) produced in a given cell or organism and identify all the genes that encode glycoproteins. Glycomics market is segmented by product type, applications, and geography. Instruments such as HPLC, Mass spectroscopy microarrays along with the reagents used in the glycomic analysis are being tracked in the report.

Key Market Trends

Drug Discovery and Development Segment is Expected to Hold a Major Market Share in the Glycomics Market

  • As the burden of chronic diseases is increasing, the need for developing new drugs is also increasing. Glycans play a major role in biological processes such as cell-cell interaction and thus have immense importance in drug development. Therefore, often these glycan chains are modified to synthesize drugs. For instance, hyaluronan, a naturally occurring disaccharide unit of glycosaminoglycan, has wide applications into medicine. It is used in post-surgical wounds and has an essential part in osteoarthritis treatment.
  • Furthermore, glycans have wide applications in vaccine development too. Many of the conjugate vaccines are based upon proteins and glycans. For instance, Prevnar 13 (manufactured by Pfizer, Inc.) used for preventing pneumococcal bacterial infection, is based upon glycans.
  • Thus, considering rising research and development, the market is expected to witness healthy CAGR over the forecast period.
Glycomics Market Share

North America is Expected to Hold a Significant Share in the Market and Expected to do Same in the Forecast Period

North America is expected to be a dominant region in the glycomics market owing to increasing research and development activities and government funding programs. Recently, the National Institute of Health-funded into the research “Computational and Informatics Resources and Tools for Glycoscience Research.” Furthermore, companies are investing heavily in research and development activities, which are expected to propel the growth of glycomics. According to Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, in 2018, the pharmaceutical industry spent over USD 79.6 billion on research and development. Thus, it is expected to impact positively on North America’s glycomics market.

Glycomics Market Analysis
