Latin America Protein Expression Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The size of the Protein Expression Market in Latin America was worth USD 252.56 Million in 2022 and is estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 9.81%, to reach USD 403.25 Million by 2027.

Protein expression is a vital element of proteomics that plays an important role in research by allowing the expression of genetically engineered recombinant proteins in various host cells.

Proteins are regulated and manufactured depending upon the functional need in the host cell. Biotechnology-based companies are developing novel therapeutics with minimal side effects, thereby creating a huge Protein expression market.

Factors such as the concentration of large firms in establishing their production units in the region, as well as increasing disposable incomes, increasing geriatric population, high prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, neuromuscular disorder, and inflammatory diseases, etc., favorable spending on protein research and the rising funds associated with the production and distribution of protein products are driving the growth of the Latin American protein expression market. Cuba had the highest recorded cancer rate, according to a recent study, with the disease affecting 140 men and 95 women per 100,000 population. While Mexico had the lowest cancer rate with 65 men per 100,000 population and 612 women per 100,000 population. Cancer-associated with stomach, colorectal, lung, and breast are most common in the Latin American region. According to World Bank statistics, current health expenditure (% of GDP) in the world increased from 9.22% in 2002 to 9.94% in 2020. In addition, current health expenditure per capita has increased from 495.99 USD in 2002 to 1,115.84 USD in 2020. These numbers explain the growing demand for healthcare and consecutively is driving the Latin America protein expression market during the studied period.

There is a growing demand for protein products using hi-end molecular biology techniques such as systems biology, metabolic engineering, etc., and the technological advancements in mass spectrometry, protein purification to improve the performance of bioprocesses and generate stable and biologically active proteins with longer shelf life. In addition, rapid developments in medical technology, accurate diagnosis, and the presence of well-developed healthcare services in emerging markets are expected to positively impact the market.

However, several factors such as the high cost of protein expression reagents and instruments coupled with increasing consolidation, a significant shortage of trained health professionals, the lack of local expertise, and lack of efficient systems for post-translational modifications are the major limiting factors in the LATAM protein expression market during the analysis period.
