Peptides are naturally occurring, small biological molecules made of short chains of amino acids linked by a peptide bond, performing multiple functions within the cell. Peptide drugs have been in use for almost a century now, though initially they were only used to replicate the action of natural hormones for metabolic diseases, for example, the first of this kind that was approved for clinical usage was insulin for the management of diabetes. However, decades of research and development of peptides have resulted in the discovery of peptides that have the ability to penetrate the cell with advanced actions, all of which have shown excellent results for various therapeutic functions.

Till date, more than 200 peptide based therapeutics have gained approval from regulatory bodies. The most common indications for peptides are oncology, endocrinology, and metabolic diseases. Other target areas of peptides that have gained attention include gastroenterology, cardiovascular diseases, dermatology, bone diseases, and sexual dysfunction. The robust response of peptide therapeutics in the market has propelled the further research activities in this domain. Currently, more than 800 clinical trials are ongoing in global peptide therapeutics market which suggests promising future of peptide therapeutics in the forthcoming years.  

The global peptide therapeutics market is both competitive along with being fragmented on account of the presence of several international and also domestic industry players. Such industry players have utilized an assorted innovative strategies for being at the top along with sufficing to the burgeoning requirement of the esteemed clients including geographic expansions, collaborations, joint ventures, new product launches, partnerships, contracts, and much more. For instance, Bicycle Therapeutics has entered into strategic collaboration with Genentech to      discover, develop and commercialize novel Bicycle®-based immuno-oncology therapies. Further, Fusion Pharmaceuticals also enter into collaboration with Pepscan to discover, novel, peptide-based radiopharmaceuticals for the management of solid tumors.

By therapeutic indication, cancer peptide occupies more than 25% share in the global market. Several peptide based drugs including Firmagon, Eligard, Velcade, Zoladex, Cosmegen, Sandostatin, Mepact, and others have entered the market and have shown robust response rate. More recently, peptide cancer vaccine namely Riavax  have also gained approval in South Korea for the treatment of locally advanced or metastatic pancreatic cancer. The promising sales of these drugs are driving this segment during the forecast period. Furthermore, surge in prevalence of cancer and unmet need of cost effective targeted drugs are also anticipated to propel the growth of cancer peptide drugs during the forecast period.

It is analyzed that the future holds an extensive place for peptides in addressing the greatest of medical challenge due to their capability of being adapted and modified to achieve the desired action. There is immense scope for the development of new peptides with protein fragmentation along with alternative routes of administration and improved oral bioavailability. They will also be used to address the currently undruggable targets in the coming years. Keeping the clinical pipeline in consideration, it is expected that the global peptide therapeutics market will surpass US$ 75 Billion by 2028. In addition to above mentioned factors, rising geriatric population and associated increase in chronic disease will also drive the growth of market.
