Therefore, assays in disease diagnosis, drug discovery, and development encourage biotechnology and bio-pharmacy players to invest in research and development, driving the growth of the protein assays market.


However, stringent regulatory frameworks and adverse drug reactions of anticonvulsants and unapproved bipolar drugs may hamper the market's growth. The rising application of protein content determination in various pharmacy and biotechnology fields has stimulated the market's development.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global protein assay market

Since the COVID-19 outbreak in December 2019, the virus has extended to nearly 90 countries worldwide, and the World Health Organization has declared it a public health emergency. The global impacts of the 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are already starting to be felt and will remarkably influence the protein assay market in 2020. COVID-19 can affect the global economy in three main ways: directly affecting production and demand, creating supply chain and need disruptions, and its financial impact on businesses and financial markets. The COVID-19 outbreak has had effects in many ways, such as flight cancellations; travel bans and quarantines; restaurants closing; all restricted interior events; more than forty countries have declared a state of emergency; a massive downturn in the supply chain; stock market volatility; declining business confidence, growing public panic, and uncertainty about the future. However, the market is anticipated to showcase a healthy CAGR during the forecast period due to better situations.
