Market Analysis

2nd International Conference on Applied Crystallography

(Theme: Crystallography of today is the innovation of tomorrow)


The Crystallization Market is segmented by technology, product, and end user. The market, by technology, is further segmented into protein purificationprotein crystallization, protein crystal mounting, and protein crystallography. The Protein Crystallization segment accounted for the largest share of the protein crystallography market in 2013. However, the protein purification market will see the highest growth in the next five years.

North America is the largest revenue generator for the Crystallization & Crystallography Market, closely followed by Europe. Both markets have reached the maturity phase of growth and are estimated to register single-digit growth rates for the next five years. Asia projects a robust growth outlook during the analysis period, owing to growing urbanization, huge investment opportunities in these immature markets, and the growing number of research projects in these regions. Growth of the Protein Crystallization & Crystallography Market will be driven mainly by countries like China and India.

Factors propelling the growth of the Protein Crystallization & Crystallography Market include the increasing and immediate need for high-resolution information on protein structurestechnological advancements, increasing government funding, and increasing R&D in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological arenas. On the other hand, factors restraining the growth of the market include dearth of qualified and experienced researchers, lack of generalized crystallization methods associated with the types of proteins, and highly time-consuming and expensive Protein Crystallization & Crystallography processes.

Emerging technologies like X-ray-free electron lasers, lab automation using liquid handling robotics, and automated workstations to reduce labour force and increase efficiency show promising prospects. The major players operating in the Protein Crystallization & Crystallography Market are Rigaku Corporation (Japan), Hampton Research (U.S.), Jena Bioscience GmbH (Germany), Molecular Dimensions Ltd. (U.K.), Formulatrix, Inc. (U.S.), Bruker Corporation (U.S.), and MiTeGen LLC (U.S.).


In this era proteomics, protein crystallography the technique is Widely Used to Determine the Three-dimensional structure of the protein. The data generated from various methods: such as X-ray crystallographyNMR spectroscopycryo-electron microscopygel electrophoresis alone or in combination are used to Determine The Structure of protein. With the use of crystallography technique, the number of crystal structures in the PDB Deposited has Increased over the past few years.

Crystallography technique has wide application in many industries: such as Pharmaceutical, Cosmetic, as well as food. Despite the structural complexity of the protein, the crystallography technique Facilitates structure-based drug design to target biological molecules SPECIFICALLY. This technique has led to effective treatments for many diseases by discovery of new antibiotics, drugs, and vaccines. The analysts forecast the Global Protein Crystallization and Crystallography market to grow at a CAGR of 10.15 percent over the period 2013-2018. This report covers the Present scenario and the growth prospects of the Global Protein Crystallization and Crystallography market for the period 2014-2018. To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated from the sales of various methods used to Determine the Structure of a protein using crystallography techniques.

Present Market:

The research categorizes the protein crystallization & crystallography market on the basis of technologies (protein purification, protein crystallization, protein crystal mounting, and protein crystallography), products (analyzers and reagents), and end users (pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology companies, government institutes, and academic institutions). On the basis of technology, the protein crystallization segment accounted for the largest share-47%-of the market in 2015.

Geographically, North America commanded the largest market share of the protein crystallization & crystallography market, followed by Europe. The availability of government and private funds, technological advancements, and growing research in the field of structure-based drug design are factors that are driving the market in these regions. However, the economic downturn and cuts in healthcare budgets are hampering the growth of the market. Countries like China and India will be the major contributors of growth for this market. Increasing investments by leading companies in these immature markets, and increase in research and development activities in these regions are driving the growth.

The deviations and overlap of revenues between the various segments of technology and products in number of sources were the major challenges faced while estimating the market size. They were overcome by the validating the data by a large number of industry experts and key opinion leaders.

From an insight perspective, this research report focuses on various qualitative aspects such as - industry, technology & trends, and company profiles, which together comprises the basic views on the competitive landscape, government initiative, drivers, restraints and opportunities, and key players in the protein crystallization & crystallography market .It also looks at the product portfolio, developments, and strategies to maintain and increase the market share in the near future.

WHY Chicago???

Chicago is the third-most populous city in the United States. With over 2.7 million residents, it is the most populous city in the state of Illinois and the Midwestern United States, and the county seat of Cook County. The Chicago metropolitan area, often referred to as Chicago land, has nearly 10 million people and is the third-largest in the U.S

Chicago was incorporated as a city in 1837, near a portage between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River watershed, and grew rapidly in the mid-nineteenth century. The city is an international hub for finance, commerce, industry, technology, telecommunications, and transportation: O'Hare International Airport is the second-busiest airport in the world when measured by aircraft traffic; the region also has the largest number of U.S. highways and rail road freight. In 2012, Chicago was listed as an alpha global city by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network and ranked seventh in the world in the 2014 Global Cities Index.

Chicago has the third-largest gross metropolitan product in the United States—about $630.3 billion according to 2014–2016 estimates. The city has one of the world's largest and most diversified economies with no single industry employing more than 14% of the workforce. The City of Chicago covers an area of 60,000 hectares and sits 176 meters (578 feet) above sea level on the south-western shore of Lake Michigan. At 190 km wide and 495 km long, it’s the 5th largest body of fresh water in the world. The city is traversed by the Chicago and Calumet rivers. Chicago's extensive parklands, including 3,000 hectares of city parks attract an estimated 86 million visitors annually.
