Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Bioengineered Protein Drug Market size is estimated to surpass USD 250 billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of bioengineered protein drug was over USD 100 billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing cases of cancer backed by the presence of multiple organizations to promote cancer treatment and the higher utilization of bioengineered proteins to provide relief in chemotherapy. According to the statistics of the World Health Organization (WHO), cancer is the second leading cause of death around the world. The statistics also stated that in the year 2018, cancer was responsible for an estimated 9.6 million deaths.

The prevalence of infectious diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and others is primarily increasing the global demand for bioengineered protein drugs. As opposed to alternative treatments for cancer, diabetes, and other illnesses, bioengineered protein medications are more successful and often have minimal or no side effects. As a result, healthcare practitioners are increasingly prescribing medicines that are made up of bioengineered protein drugs. Moreover, the escalating research and developments in bioengineered protein drugs and advancements in phase III clinical trials for the several medicines that are made from bioengineered protein drugs, are allowing pharmaceutical manufacturers to increasingly invest in the commercialization of this protein. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in its statistical report “National Diabetes Statistics Report 2020”, stated that crude estimates for the prevalence of both diagnosed and undiagnosed diabetes amongst the US population aged 18 years or older in the year 2018 were registered to 34.1 million (10.5% of the US population).

Bioengineered Protein Drug Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Prevalence of Cancer – cancer is the main disease that requires bioengineered protein drugs. These proteins are developed in labs to treat cancer cells and supply nutrient lines to nourish other tissues to fight cancer cells. Hence, it has a higher demand for chemotherapies across the globe. For instance, in 2020, approximately 10 million people died on account of cancer while in 2022, around 2 million new cases of cancer were diagnosed in the United States.

  • Rising Geriatric Population –According to the American Heart Association (AHA), the occurrence of Cardiovascular disease in men and women in the United States is 75% between the ages of 60 and 79, and 86% over the age of 80. Besides that, the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) in the United States found that 70% of adults aged 65 and older have hypertension. The elderly population is more prone to get chronic diseases and the rising number of elderly populations across the globe is estimated to drive market growth.

  • Increasing Health Spending – The global health expenditure was anticipated to reach around USD 8.5 trillion in 2019 up from 8.5% in 2000. This boom in global health spending is expected to accelerate the development of bioengineered protein drugs over the forecast period.

  • Growing Incidences of Diabetes – diabetes is one of the most prevalent chronic diseases that can be treated with bioengineered protein drugs. For instance, around 500 million people across the globe were noticed to be living with diabetes in 2021.

  • Rising Cases of Asthma – for instance, in 2019, more than 250 million people were affected with asthma worldwide. On the other hand, around 3,500 people died on account of asthma in 2021 in US.


  • High Cost of Treatment Associated with Bioengineered Protein Drugs - Treatment of diseases that require the use of bioengineered protein drugs usually costs high owing to the complications involved in the treatment process. As a result, the use of these drugs is not that feasible for countries belonging to low- and middle-income nations. Such a factor is anticipated to affect the growth of the global bioengineered protein drug market.
  • Higher Possibility of Unwanted Immune Response Against Themselves
  • Membrane Impermeability and Poor In Vivo Stability

Bioengineered Protein Drug Segmentation

Drug Type (Recombinant Protein, Vaccine, Peptide Antibiotics, Therapeutic Enzymes)

The global bioengineered protein drug market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by drug type into recombinant protein, vaccine, peptide antibiotics, therapeutic enzymes, and others. Out of these types of drugs, the therapeutic enzymes segment is estimated to gain the largest market share in the year 2035. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the extensive use of therapeutic enzymes in the manufacturing of therapeutic proteins and the processing of recombinant DNA. Macromolecular therapeutic proteins, such as interferons, cytokines, and monoclonal antibodies, are extensively used in the treatment of HIV, cancer, and other diseases. A higher prevalence of HIV and cancer can be observed among the global population owing to several reasons such as rising tobacco and alcohol consumption, and others. For instance, it was estimated that nearly 8 million people lose their lives on account of tobacco consumption every year. Additionally, approximately 80% of tobacco users are observed to be living in developing countries.

Application (Autoimmune, Heart, Congenital, Infectious Diseases, Cancer, Diabetes, Arthritis)

The global bioengineered protein drug market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into autoimmune, heart, congenital, infectious diseases, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and others. Amongst these segments, the cancer segment is expected to garner a significant share in the year 2035. Cancer is the most common cause of mortality worldwide. Several types of antibodies are used to cure cancer such as monoclonal antibodies. These antibodies are cured in the labs to attack specific targets on cancer cells. Bioengineering cancer therapies include re-engineering tumor microenvironments to eliminate tumor-promoting cues and developing next-generation cell-based therapies. Furthermore, it was also observed in multiple studies that cancer patients require more protein than an ordinary healthy person. Since tumor kills the cell while bioengineered protein helps the tissues to fight infections. Some instances of the most suitable drugs for cancer are 5-fluorouracil, methotrexate, 6-mercaptopurine, gemcitabine, and cytarabine.
