Protein electrophoresis is a blood testing technique used to detect the presence and respective amounts of various proteins called globulins. Along with albumins and fibrinogens, globulins are one of three major blood proteins and are crucial for a healthy circulatory system. Protein electrophoresis is performed utilizing blood serum, i.e. the component of the blood excluding all blood cells, coagulants, and fibrinogens. In protein electrophoresis, the serum is treated with electricity to fragment it into the various globulins that make up blood serum. This reveals the molecular structure of the proteins, furthering our understanding of the circulatory system.

Strong Growth Prospects in Asia Pacific Drive Global Protein Electrophoresis Market

The global market for protein electrophoresis was led by the regional segment of Asia Pacific in 2014. Japan led the APAC protein electrophoresis market, due to its strong healthcare research infrastructure. Growing prevalence of the same in other Asia Pacific countries such as China and India is expected to keep the APAC protein electrophoresis market high in the regional charts of the global market.

Increasing government support for hematological research in the aforementioned APAC countries has helped the APAC protein electrophoresis market massively and is expected to be a major factor in the market’s development in the coming years. The presence of several manufacturers of raw materials as well as reagents required in protein electrophoresis in Asia Pacific is another major factor boosting the dominance of the APAC market.

Behind Asia Pacific, the Europe and North America markets for protein

electrophoresis emerged strongly in the global market. Established healthcare and life sciences research facilities and infrastructure in developed countries such as the U.S., the U.K., Germany, and France have helped these two regional markets gain a strong share in the global protein electrophoresis market.

CN-PAGE Protein Electrophoresis to Lead Global Market

Protein electrophoresis is done through two methods, by either denaturing the proteins to be studied or keeping them intact. Polyacrylamide gel is a common ingredient in both types of electrophoresis procedures, lending its name to a class of modern and commonly used electrophoresis methods: polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, or PAGE tests. Polyacrylamide gel brings about gelling of the serum, in which proteins can move unrestrictedly within buffer media.

Denaturing electrophoresis processes help study unfolded proteins, whereas non-denatured tests are used to study the protein chains without unfolding them. PAGE tests are a type of non-denatured electrophoresis tests, wherein clear native (CN) and blue native (BN) PAGE tests lead the market. Both tests are followed by QPNC-PAGE tests, which utilize nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry to analyze the structure of protein molecules.

Clear and blue native PAGE electrophoresis procedures differ in one key aspect: the latter utilizes a blue dye that helps provide extra visibility to the proteins being studied. CN-PAGE systems thus offer slightly lower visibility. However, due to the risk of the blue dye denaturing proteins, CN-PAGE electrophoresis is usually preferred.

Fragmented Protein Electrophoresis Market Led by Regional Players

The global protein electrophoresis market is marked by the high number of players operating in a specific regional domain, thus leading to a high degree of fragmentation. As the global market matures over the years, major players could make moves aimed at consolidation. Major players in the global protein electrophoresis market include Cleaver Scientific Ltd., CBS Scientific Company Inc., Sigma-Aldrich, LabRepCo., and Lonza Group Ltd.
