Global Protease Inhibitors Market Overview:
The ‘protease inhibitor’ are molecules that have many different applications. In some cases, the ‘protease inhibitor’ (PI) indicates a type of drug that is primarily used to treat hepatitis and HIV/AIDS. Proteases are enzymes that cleave or cut proteins. Protease inhibitor inhibits the function of protease, thereby preventing viral replication. Inhibitors also block the proteolytic cleavage of the precursor protein required to produce new virus particles. These protease inhibitor drugs, apart from antiviral drugs, can be used in the treatment of cancer and diabetes. Several protease inhibitors can be used as reagents in protein purification or cell/tissue extraction.
Global Protease Inhibitors Market Forecast and Trends
Increasing appeal of a protease inhibitor to boost the market growth
Protease inhibitors are being used in various fields nowadays. They are used in research for clinical application, drugs for the treatment of diseases such as HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C, and others. The development of pharmaceutical protease inhibitors is of great interest which targets the specific protease enzyme (for example, in HIV anti-retroviral drugs). Thus, the increasing prevalence of viral diseases such as HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C is expected to drive the protease inhibitors market during the forecast period. On the back of this increasing product appeal, antiretroviral protease inhibitors are anticipated to fuel the protease inhibitors' market growth in the forecast period.
High prevalence of HIV and HCV to drive market growth
Antiretroviral protease inhibitors are major drugs in the treatment of diseases such as HIV and HCV. With the increasing number of cases coupled with a high prevalence of these diseases the demand for these drugs is bound to increase as well. The rising awareness about anti-retroviral therapy and cancer treatment is another major factor contributing to the growth of the global protease inhibitors market. Thereby, it is anticipated that the market for antiretroviral protease inhibitors will show significant CAGR over the forecast period.
Stringent regulation environment coupled with side effects of a drug to hamper the growth
To protect the public from harmful drug effects, governments make rules and regulations stringent. Usually, government regulations make product development more expensive. Such an environment can create a hindrance in the market growth in that region. While Antiretroviral protease inhibitors have side effects and unbearable toxicity and hence people hesitate in using these drugs. So, there is a challenge in front of drug manufacturing companies to innovate and prepare drug which has either no side effects or they have only a few non-severe side effects.
Impact of COVID-19 in the industry
COVID-19 can affect the global economy in three main ways: by directly affecting production and demand, by creating supply chain and market disruption, and by its financial impact on firms and financial markets. The outbreak of COVID-19 has brought effects on many aspects, like flight cancellations travel bans and quarantines restaurants closed all indoor events restricted over forty countries state of emergency declared massive slowing of the IT Spending market volatility falling business confidence, growing panic among the population, and uncertainty about future. The growth in the global protease inhibitors market is anticipated to be driven by the increased research for clinical application of protease inhibitors combined with the rise in demand for protease inhibitors in COVID-19.
Global Protease Inhibitors Market: By Mechanism of action
Based on the mechanism of action, the global market can be divided into serine protease inhibitors, cysteine protease inhibitors, aminopeptidase inhibitors, aspartic protease inhibitors, metalloprotease inhibitors, and others. The serine protease inhibitor segment leads to the protease inhibitors market. It is anticipated to drive the growth for antiretroviral drugs in the protease inhibitors market on the back of its effectiveness in the treatment. Serine protease inhibitor forms a proteolytically inactive stoichiometric complex with the Serpins proteases which will play a vital role in the regulation of blood coagulation, complement activation, generation of kinins, and fibrinolysis.

Global Protease Inhibitors Market: By Application
Based on application, the global protease inhibitors market has been divided into commodity protease inhibitor, research tool protease inhibitor, and protease inhibitor drugs. The protease inhibitor drugs segment is expected to hold a significant share of the global market from 2021 to 2026, due to the high prevalence of anti-retroviral diseases across the world. Protease inhibitors are being used in various fields nowadays. They are used in research for clinical application, drugs for the treatment of diseases such as HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C, and others. On the back of this increasing product appeal, antiretroviral protease inhibitors are anticipated to fuel the market growth in the forecast period.
Global Protease Inhibitors Market: By End-Use
Based on end-user, the global market has been divided into hospitals & diagnostic centers, pharmaceutical industries, and academic & research institutes. The hospital segment leads to the protease inhibitors market.
Hospitals are expected to hold a significant share of the global market from 2021 to 2026, owing to the high prevalence of diseases such as HIV and HCV has increased the demand for drugs in hospitals. Moreover, with the increasing popularity of online pharmacies, the supply chain in the field of drug delivery is expected to improve tremendously.
Global Protease Inhibitors Market: Regional insights
The global Protease Inhibitors market is segmented into five regions including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. The North American region is anticipated to dominate the global protease inhibitors market, during the forecast period owing to increasing cases of HIV and chronic HCV, growing industrial sector, and advanced health care infrastructure in the region. Asia Pacific region is expected to register the maximum CAGR during the forecast period, owing to factors such as rising health care expenditure and increasing focus of global pharmaceutical companies in the Asia Pacific region. A rise in awareness about antiretroviral diseases in the Asian and African regions will drive the growth of the market.
