Glycobiology is the study of entire biology that includes structure and function of molecules containing carbohydrates (sugar and saccharides) also called as glycans. It is very helpful in biotechnological research and biomedicine. Carbohydrates control almost all the aspects of cellular processing that involves cell-cell interactions, adhesion mechanisms, signalling for growth factors, blood clotting, regulating hormonal activity, and it also directs embryonic development.
Glycobiology market is in the emerging state mainly due to the increase in expenditure by different pharmaceutical companies on R&D. In addition, increase in activities such as drug discovery, government expenditure, technological advancement, public and private investments, and grants and funds for the development of more advanced technologies in the field of R&D. However, factors such as high cost associated with the imaging process, stringent government policies, and lack of skilled technicians impede the market growth.
