Peptide Therapeutics Market

The growing adoption of peptide based drugs to treat complex diseases anticipated to open up new avenue for Peptide Therapeutics Market


The Peptide Therapeutics Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 44,386.9 Mn or Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.6% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:

Peptide therapeutics are short chains of amino acids linked by peptide (amide) bonds. They are used to treat metabolic disorders, cancer, central nervous system (CNS) diseases, and cardiovascular conditions. Key peptide drugs available in the market are liraglutide, exenatide, calcitonin, cyclosporine, etc. which are used for treating diabetes, osteoporosis, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and immunodeficiency conditions. Peptide drugs exhibit high specificity, potency, and low toxicity making them ideal for chronic conditions.

Market Dynamics:

The peptide therapeutics market is primarily driven by growing prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, metabolic disorders, cardiovascular diseases. According to World Health Organization (WHO) cancer burden rose to 19.3 million new cases and 10.0 million cancer deaths in 2020. cardiovascular diseases accounted for over 17 million deaths globally. Furthermore, rising adoption of peptide-based drugs owing to advantages such as high specificity, low toxicity and rising R&D investment by key players to develop novel peptide therapeutics are also expected to boost market growth over the forecast period.

However, high development cost and regulatory hurdles associated with peptide drugs may hamper market growth. But increasing healthcare expenditure, collaboration between organizations, and technological advancements in peptide engineering for enhanced stability and efficacy of peptide drugs is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for market players in the near future.

Segment Analysis

The peptide therapeutics market can be segmented based on type, technology, application and route of administration. By type, cardiovascular disease therapeutics is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period owing to the increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases like coronary artery disease, heart failure. The sub-segment held over 20% market share in 2023.
