Metabolism is the basis for all life activities of an organism, and metabolism cannot be achieved without the catalytic action of enzymes. They are catalytic organic substances produced by living cells. Essentially, the vast majority of enzymes are proteins, and a few are RNA, or ribonucleic acid, which is a carrier of genetic information. Enzymes are natural biocatalysts. The life sciences sector is one of the fastest growing sectors affecting the specialty enzymes market. With the rapid advances of the pharmaceutical industry and other fast-growing applications in the diagnostic industry, the specialty enzymes market is expected to grow rapidly.

Global companies are struggling to maintain a competitive advantage in the market by focusing on the research of new applied enzymes. Global expansion is constantly evolving, and the outlook for the economy is very broad. Strategic alliances with local manufacturers will help global manufacturers expand their product range and gain a regional foothold. Diagnostic enzymes are used in small batches and high value-added applications, including clinical chemistry, molecular diagnostics, and immunoassays. Based on products, the global diagnostic enzyme market has been subdivided into proteases, sugar enzymes, lipases, etc. The global market for diagnostic enzymes in 2019 is valued at USD 886.2 million, and it is expected to reach USD 1.4017 billion by 2026.

The rapid growth of the global diagnostic enzyme market is attributed to increased enzyme use in biotechnology and diagnostic applications, surge in investment, rising prevalence of chronic, infectious and lifestyle diseases, and early and immediate diagnosis of life-threatening diseases. The number of patients with infectious and other lifestyle diseases is increasing. For example, data compiled by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, the American Heart Association, the International Diabetes Federation, and the U.S. Health Partnership show that 33.5% of people in the United States have high cholesterol, and 38.7 million adults have diabetes, which causes approximately 1.73 million deaths each year.

The global diagnostic enzyme market is constantly growing and expanding. Continued investment in biotechnology and genetics is driving the growth of the global market, and pharmaceutical companies rely on biotechnology to overcome the difficulty of bringing successful new small molecule drugs to the market. For example, in 2018, Creative Enzymes, Inc. spent $ 19.8 million on research and development. The company invests primarily in the development of enzymes for diagnostics. In addition, state-of-the-art medical equipment provides immediate results and is desirable for early diagnosis for most people. Early diagnosis allows people to use better treatment options. The Oxford Journals Clinical Infectious Diseases Department states that tens of thousands of children and adults are hospitalized or even die each year from diseases that can be prevented by vaccination.

The global diagnostic enzyme market has been segmented by product, application and region. As far as product types are concerned, the market has been divided into carbohydrates, oxidases, polymerases and nucleases, proteases, lipases and more. The polymerase and nuclease sectors are expected to dominate the market and continue to dominate the market within expected range. The increasing applications of polymerases and nucleases in advanced biotechnology applications have driven the development of this field. Meanwhile, the oxidase market is likely to lose market share. In terms of applications, it is expected that field of clinical chemistry will continue to dominate the market from 2018 to 2026. Glucose monitoring is a major sub-field of clinical chemistry in 2017 and may account for a major share of the forecast period.
