Protein A Resins Market is projected to surpass US$ 1.2 Billion by 2031

According to a recent study by Future Market Insights (FMI), the global protein A resins market is expected to witness high growth during the forecast period. The market is expected to grow from US$ 536.6 Mn in 2020 to over US$ 1.2 Bn by 2031. This reflects a cumulative CAGR of around 8.1% over the forecast period (2021-2031).

Increasing researches conducted on monoclonal antibodies are driving demand for protein A resin. Since the commercialization of the first therapeutic monoclonal antibody in 1986, till May 2021, around 100 monoclonal antibody products have been approved by the U.S. FDA and European Medical Agency for the treatment of various diseases such as cancer.

Monoclonal antibody therapy for the treatment of mild to moderate COVID-19 in patients has also been approved by the FDA under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).

Studies on monoclonal antibodies have indicated that more monoclonal antibody therapies are in the process of getting FDA approval and can be marketed in the near future to cater to rising demand in the global life sciences industry. Thus, increasing research on monoclonal antibodies (mAb) is expected to fuel the demand and utilization of protein A resin for purification and precipitation purposes.

For the purification of monoclonal antibodies (mAb), different technologies are available which includes membrane chromatography, mixed chromatography, and aqueous two-phase extractions (ATPS). However, protein A resin holds the top position for the purification of mAbs.

With many industries facing issues of leaching of ligand and resistance during the commercialization of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), the availability of next-generation protein A resins with improved purification conditions, such as alkaline-stability, and with very low ligand leaching, is expected to increase the production and throughput demand for protein therapeutic processes.

Furthermore, in June 2018, Purolite Life Sciences launched a novel next-generation Protein A agarose resin, Praesto Jetted A50. GE Healthcare, in 2017, introduced a next-generation protein A resin, MabSelect PrismaA, which was designed to enable biopharma manufacturers to improve their mAb purification capacity by up to 40% over GE Healthcare’s existing protein A affinity medium. These product launches are expected give tailwinds to growth registered in the market.

Such developments not only strengthen the company’s existing portfolio but also help to increase their presence at the regional as well as global level.
