Short chains of amino acid monomers which are linked by amide bonds are termed as peptides. Peptides are different from proteins due to difference in their sizes. Peptides contain less than 50 molecules of amino acids. Peptides bind themselves to some specific cell surface receptors and imitate like receptor ligands. This characteristic of peptides helps in treating various diseases as peptides act on the cell membrane. Increasing number of cancer patients and various metabolic diseases as well as technological advancements such as introduction of hybrid method of synthesis of peptides, are expected to drive the peptide therapeutics market over the forecast period. Huge market potential has been identified in peptide therapeutics market globally and thus various pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries are actively investing in research & development activities to develop newer peptides to be used for various applications. Cancer has been a major cause of death globally. According to world health organisation (WHO), number of cancer patients is expected to increase from 12.7 million per year in 2011 to 16 million per year in 2020.
