Glycobiology is the study of carbohydrates and carbohydrate-containing biomolecules in biological processes. This study is used in diagnostics, drug discovery research, immunology, oncology, and various other applications. Glycobiology products are widely used for analysis of cell surface markers, which can act as diagnostic or therapeutic targets.
The growing demand for remedial treatments for life-threatening diseases, such as cancer, has driven the pace of pharmaceutical and biotechnological R&D as well as overall investments made in this sector. Both glycomics (being the study of glycans) and proteomics (being the study of proteins, and holding a prominent place in glycome R&D) are research-driven sectors. Moreover, glycomic biomarkers are finding significant applications in drug development and diagnostics for such diseases. As a result, the growing availability of funding for these two sectors is expected to aid the growth of the glycobiology market, in the coming years.
