Market Report Description

The Global Protein Labeling Market size is expected to reach $3.2 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 7.5% CAGR during the forecast period.

Proteins are the biggest macro molecules in a living creature, as they are essential for its survival. In addition, proteins engage with other bio molecules and carry out duties to keep the cell alive once they are created within a cell. As a result, proteomics and protein chemistry is being used to investigate the protein binding mechanism. The majority of these techniques revolve around the ability to create genetic fusions that selectively target proteins, resulting in unique features for selective protein imaging, manipulation, and trapping within complex biochemical settings. To conduct successful protein labeling, a variety of procedures are used.

There is an employment of a variety of methods to label proteins, including the use of specific enzymes or probes. Alkaline phosphatase (AP) and horseradish peroxidase are two often utilized enzyme-protein conjugates (HRP). Enzyme-protein labeling systems have a number of advantages, including signal amplification, a variety of signal outputs, and a wide range of substrates for each enzyme. Fluorescent, chemiluminescent, and colorimetric detection are common signal outputs. These signal outputs are suited for immunohistochemistry (IHC) or immunofluorescent (IF)-based detection applications in cells and tissues because of the wide range of signal outputs.

For examining the function and distribution of proteins in living and fixed cells, the SNAP-tag, CLIP-tag, and ACP-tag/MCP-tag protein labeling technologies provide a new alternative to standard fluorescent proteins. Covalent protein labeling makes imaging mammalian proteins in living cells easier and more versatile, as well as allowing for protein capture in vitro. A fusion protein is created by covalently attaching a single genetic construct to a range of substrates, such as fluorophores, biotin, and beads, to provide a potent tool for investigating proteins.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19 has quickly expanded in terms of confirmed cases and reported deaths, many countries are among the worst impacted by this pandemic.

Market Restraining Factors

Shortage of skilled and competent professionals

In some region, there is a huge scarcity of skilled professionals, which is hindering the recovery & progress. Along with that, there is a severe issue of unemployment and a lack of chances stymie social cohesion and enhancement. Unemployed or underemployed people may have abilities that are in short supply everywhere. Companies have identified the top three effects of skills shortages as being compelled to hire ill-suited personnel, lost production opportunities, and decreased company investment and product development—all of which hamper companies' ability to compete. Productivity might suffer as a result of a shortage of qualified workers, resulting in longer production times, higher operating costs, and other concerns.

Method Outlook

Based on Method, the market is segmented into In-vitro (Enzymatic, Dye-based, Co-translational, Site-specific, Nanoparticle, and Others) and In-vivo (Photoreactive, Radioactive, and Others). The in-vitro segment procured the highest revenue share in the protein labeling market in 2021. The in-vitro labeling method is used to identify the usage of a drug or alcohol from a sample taken from a human body that is not in a live organism, such as a test tube. In vitro, diagnostic medical equipment is tests that are performed on biological samples in order to ascertain a person's health state.

Product Outlook

Based on Product, the market is segmented into Reagents, Kits, and Services. The Kit segment acquired a substantial revenue share in the protein labeling market in 2021. The Protein Labeling Kit contains everything required to label an antibody or protein with amine-reactive green-fluorescent Alexa Fluor 488 dye (ex/em 495/519 nm). The kit is designed to label 1 mg of IgG antibody with Alexa Fluor 488 in a single reaction. Other proteins with a molecular weight greater than 20 kDa can also be tagged in modest doses.

Application Outlook

Based on Application, the market is segmented into Immunological Techniques, Cell-based Assays, Fluorescence Microscopy, Protein Microarray, and Mass Spectrometry. The immunological techniques witnessed the maximum revenue share in the protein labeling market in 2021. Flow cytometry, immunoassays, western blotting, and immunofluorescence are all examples of immunological methods that use labels. These methods are mostly employed in cancer R&D, autoimmune disease R&D, and pharmaceutical R&D. It is commonly used to identify diabetes, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, lung disorders, neurological disease, and gastrointestinal disease.
