The size of the Middle East and African peptide therapeutics market is predicted to hike at a healthy CAGR from 2021 to 2026.
Factors include the increasing prevalence of cancer, increasing health expenditure, increasing incidence of metabolic disorders, increasing geriatric population, and accelerating the number of therapeutic drugs based on approved peptides.
The growing incidences of cancer and metabolic disorders, such as osteoporosis, obesity, and diabetes, are some of the main factors driving the growth of the peptide therapeutics market during the forecast period. In addition, the need for inexpensive and effective drugs is great due to the growth of the affected pediatric population and the incidence of target diseases in low-cost countries. The market will show a good growth rate for the peptide therapeutics market due to the various initiatives taken by many companies for the development of new drug candidates. CMOs offering a complete solution to biotech, pharmaceutical companies are increasing due to the shift in focus of pharmaceutical companies to seek better opportunities in the peptide therapy market.
The market is expected to experience some trends, such as expansion in the volume of generic peptides, rapid adoption of outsourced peptide APIs, and increased investment in research and development of new drugs. In addition, according to data from Omnia Health 2019, there is an increasing incidence of epidemic skin cancer data globally and in the region, which requires efforts to promote awareness and implement standardized screening programs. Patients living in areas with high average annual heatstroke, such as the United Arab Emirates, should take extra precautions to fight skin cancer. In the UAE, Skin cancer is one of the most commonly found malignancies, with a prevalence rate of 14.9%. Hence, the above-mentioned factor is likely to drive the growth of the market.
However, the operational limitations of peptides will restrain the growth of the market. Additionally, market growth would be compromised by the availability of generic or biosimilar peptide therapeutic drugs, the high cost of drug development, stringent regulatory requirements, and the complexity of peptide production.
