Peptides are short chains of amino acids that are linked by peptide bonds. They are a unique class of compounds with therapeutic applications and play an important role within the cells, from signalling to anti-infectives. Peptide therapeutics act as essential replacement therapies that supplement peptide hormones when inadequate endogenous levels occur. Due to continuous research and development, the utilization of peptide therapeutics has evolved over time. Since the development of the first peptide therapeutic, insulin has showcased remarkable outcomes, which led to more research, development, and approval of around 80 peptide therapeutics all over the world.

COVID-19 Impact

COVID-19 has moderately impacted the growth of the peptide therapeutics market worldwide. Due to the therapeutic effect of peptide drugs, many of the peptide-based vaccines for the treatment of COVID-19 were in clinical trials. The continuous support and investments of the government in the research and development of peptide therapeutics will help expand this market. Around 21 peptide drugs, among which 15 are synthetic peptide drugs, were in development for treating acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and other respiratory issues caused by the SARS-CO-2 infection.

Peptide Therapeutics Market Trends

Cancer has become one of the leading causes of death worldwide. According to the GLOBOCAN report, in 2020, 19.3 million new cases of cancer were diagnosed, among which 10 million patients died due to cancer. The GLOBOCAN report predicts that in 2040, this number will grow and reach 28.4 million cancer cases all over the globe. Peptide therapeutics have emerged as a novel and promising treatment option for solid tumours like breast cancer. owing to the advantages of peptide therapeutics such as ease of synthesis, high target specificity and selectivity, and low toxicity, researchers have been focusing on developing novel and effective peptide therapeutics for many diseases, including cancer.

The prevalence of metabolic disorders is increasing all over the globe, leading to an growing demand for peptide therapeutics. Diabetes is one of the most common metabolic disorders that is treated using the peptide therapeutic insulin. Metabolic disorders and cancer are the main disease areas driving the utilisation of therapeutic drugs globally. According to International Diabetes Federation, in 2021, approximately 537 million adults are suffering from diabetes. The growing geriatric population, along with the increase in the incidence rate of infectious diseases, cardiovascular, respiratory, and other immune disorders, will propel the market trends.

The increased investments in developing novel therapeutics will boost this market. Increasing research and development in developing peptide therapeutics mainly focuses on oncology, metabolic disorders, and infectious diseases. The key players in this market are taking initiatives and investing more in the R&D of new drugs to retain their positions and develop novel drugs with higher efficacy to treat target diseases. Clinical trials related to such therapeutics have increased over the past decades.
