Polymers meet biology and Bio systems

Protein polymers are abundant in biology, and a vast variety of different filaments can be found and Protein misfolding can lead to pathological polymerization in diseases from Alzheimer’s to Parkinson’s Synthetic polymers can be easily formed from peptides, and these are being studied for many reasons, from forming new biomaterials to drug delivery or imaging.

The demand for biobased polymers is expected to surge during the forecast period of 2015-2019 owing to the favorable regulatory outlook. Growing environmental concerns and stringent regulations that promote the use of environment-friendly and sustainable materials, along with growing consumer preference for green products, are fueling the growth of the market.

The global biomarkers market is expected to reach $45.55 Billion by 2020 from $24.10 Billion in 2015, at a CAGR of 13.58% between 2015 and 2020. Increasing healthcare expenditure & R&D spending and the increasing utility of biomarkers for diagnostics are expected to drive the market. Market growth will also be aided by the low cost of clinical trials in developing countries and new initiatives undertaken for biomarker research. On the other hand, the need for high capital investment, low benefit-cost ratio, poorly suited regulatory & reimbursement systems, and the high cost of tests and sample collection & storage are the major factors restraining the growth of this market.

Bio-based polymers are materials, where at least one of the constituent polymers is produced from renewable resources. Bio-based polymers can be biodegradable or non-biodegradable in nature. There exists three major ways to produce bio-based polymers: using natural bio-based polymers, from microorganisms using fermentation, and from biotechnology. The analysts forecast the Global Bio-based Polymers market to grow at a CAGR of 11.03 percent over the period 2014-2019. Growing environmental concerns and stringent regulations that promote the use of environment-friendly and sustainable materials, along with growing consumer preference for green products, are fueling the growth of the market.
