Market Dynamics

Growth of the global antibody discovery market size is majorly driven by increase in investment in R&D activities of antibody discovery, surge in prevalence of infectious & chronic diseases, growth in awareness among individuals regarding early diagnosis detection, and personalized medicine. The market has expanded as a result of rising R&D spending on antibody discovery and the rise in demand for more efficient, cost-effective, and effective treatments for a variety of diseases. Since antibodies can be modified to target particular pathogens and can be administered with few side effects, they present a hopeful method for treating diseases. For instance, Abzena, a top supplier of biologics and antibody drug conjugates, stated in September 2022 that it would expand its research and development capabilities in Cambridge to support the advancement of rapid antibody discovery. Moreover, Bio-Rad, a pharmaceutical company, provide 10,000 antibodies along with antigen, reagent, buffer for the development of research and in vitro diagnostic assay. Thus, pharmaceutical companies are investing more heavily in R&D activities related to antibody discovery to develop better treatments for a variety of diseases.

A significant factor that drives the worldwide market for antibody discovery is the alarming rise in the prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and autoimmune diseases, and presence of antibody discovery industry. The increase in prevalence of chronic disease augments the need for effective treatment, which drives the demand for antibody discovery services. Globally, chronic illnesses such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease are the main contributors to morbidity and death. The World Health Organization (WHO) stated that 77% of chronic disease-related deaths in 2021 occurred in low- and middle-income countries. Thus, the need for developing high-quality antibodies is increased by the rise in the prevalence of chronic illnesses.

Moreover, rise in prevalence of infectious disease and availability of therapeutic antibody for infectious disease, is one of the major factors for the growth of the market. For instance, according to the Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), in 2020, it was reported that each year around 30 million people were detected with bloodstream infection. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2020, 85% of the deaths from sepsis occur in low and middle income countries. In addition, the rise in prevalence of HIV, which is a global public health issue, fosters the demand for therapeutic antibody. thus, rise in prevalence of infectious disease, and chronic diseases propels the demand for antibody discovery and boosts the growth of the market.

In addition, rise in concern regarding health and increase in demand for early diagnostic testing drive the growth of the global market. Furthermore, the increased awareness of personalized medicine among consumers is expected to continue to drive the growth of the antibody discovery market forecast period. Personalized medicine is the tailoring of medical treatment by using available biological information through biomarker and genetic testing. Personalized medication aims to design the antibodies, which can be customized to target specific pathogens.

Various awareness programs are conducted on early diagnosis for timely and better treatment, which surge the demand for various diagnostic testing such as oncology testing, and immunology testing. For instance, in January 2021, Fortis Memorial Research Institute organized a health camp in order to create awareness and provide knowledge to people about the importance of regular screening for early diagnosis and better treatment. Thus, rise in awareness among individuals for early diagnosis and personalized medicine propels the growth of the antibody discovery market.

On the other hand, high costs associated with antibody discovery process is anticipated to limit adoption of the market during the forecast period. For instance, according to the Biomatik, it was reported that the average cost for the production of monoclonal antibody lies between $6,000 to $15,000. High cost is a major hindrance in for pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies. Thus, this factor is expected to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on antibody discovery. Through increased investment in research, the development of new technologies, and the adoption of innovative strategies, scientists have made significant progress toward the discovery of effective and targeted antibodies. Thus, the COVID-19 outbreak is anticipated to have a positive impact on the growth of the global antibody discovery market.
