Proteins are one of the four macromolecule building blocks of life. The other three are carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids. Proteins are long strings of amino acids that fold together into what are called ‐hierarchical structures‐ to perform specialized functions within the cells and tissues of all living organisms. The purpose of the protein assay is to determine the amount or concentration of a specific protein or an array of different proteins in a sample. Isolating and detecting protein is used for many clinical and research processes. This can be a primary step before further manipulation in research and development process, initial capture of protein before structural analysis, or it can be a final detection step in a clinical laboratory as part of a disease diagnosis. 

Market Dynamics  

Protein assays play a significant role in the disease diagnosis and monitoring treatment response. Thus, rise in prevalence of cancer, diabetes and neurodegenerative diseases is anticipated to fuel the demand for protein assay kit and boost the growth of the market. For instance, according to data published by National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences in the U.S. and according to a report from the Alzheimer's Disease Association in 2022 as many as 6.2 million people may have Alzheimer‐™s disease and a million Americans are living with Parkinson‐™s disease, according to the Parkinson‐™s Foundation. Thus, a rise in prevalence of neurodegenerative disorders is expected to propel the growth of the market during the forecast period. 

Moreover, the ongoing technological advancements in protein assay techniques contribute to market growth. Continuous innovations, such as improved detection sensitivity, higher throughput, and automation, attract researchers and industries to adopt newer assay technologies. Thus, a rise in technological advancement is anticipated to boost the growth of the market. For instance, in 2023 Pixelgen Technologies, the single cell spatial proteomics company, announced the commercial launch of its first kit, based on the company's proprietary Molecular Pixelation (MPX) technology for spatial analyses of immune cell surface proteins in 3D.  

Furthermore, the increase in the number of R&D activities in proteomics research by protein assays industry players and surge in demand for personalized medicine are expected to fuel the growth of the protein assay market. In addition, developments in biopharmaceutical industry and expansion of biopharmaceutical sector's including the development of biologics and biosimilars, create demand for protein assays in the characterization and quality control of these products. However, the high cost of protein assay is expected to restrain the market growth. For instance, the price of a calorimetry protein analyzer costs around $4,000 to $5,000, whereas the cost of one protein assay kit or reagent 500ml bottle costs around $120 to $180. Thus, the high cost of protein assay kits and lack of awareness among the people regarding protein biomarkers is expected to hinder the growth of the market.
