Increasing use of peptides in pharmaceutical drugs drives the global peptide synthesis market
Peptides are highly active and highly specific drug substances. Due to the diversity of their biological functions, they are used in an extensive range of therapeutic areas. Also, they are increasingly entering drug development pathways as potential active pharmaceutical ingredients due to their large chemical space, high biological activity, high specificity, relative ease of synthesis, ready availability, and low toxicity.
Oncology, diabetes, and obesity are three prominent therapeutic areas in which peptides generate billions of dollars in revenues. As a drug modality, peptides and peptidomimetics occupy the interface between small molecules and larger biological drugs with the potential to have the specificity of antibodies and the bioavailability of small molecules. Moreover, peptides provide researchers with viable options for discovery, optimization, and manufacture, as they can be synthesized chemically or expressed by recombinant systems. As a result of these advantages, pharmaceutical companies are increasingly focusing on the development of peptide-based drugs.
