In biological research procedures, there is frequent utilization of molecular labels that are linked to a protein of interest in order to assist in the detection as well as purification of the labeled protein along with its binding partners. During the process of cell growth, proteins can be labeled by combination of amino acids comprising different isotopes or in biological fluids, cells, or tissue samples. The major applications for protein labeling include monitoring of biological processes, consistent quantification of compounds, detection of specific protein modifications as well as isoforms in multiplexed samples, improvement of detection sensitivity, and generalization of detection workflows. A large number of different types of protein labels are available. Their diverse uses are desirable for precise applications. Usually, three different types of tags are employed namely, stable isotopes, mass tags, and fluorophores. They help to target protein or sequence.

Tests that include flow immunocytochemistry, cytometry, western blotting, immunohistochemistry, and ELISA require the protein labeling method for conducting different clinical and medical studies. Factors such as rise in the incidence of chronic disorders such as cancer and  increase in the need for their diagnosis are anticipated to boost demand for protein labelling techniques. This is anticipated to boost the protein labelling market in the near future. For instance, the American Cancer Society, Inc. estimated that there will be around 1,735,350 new cancer cases diagnosed and 609,640 deaths owing to cancer in the U.S. in 2018. Over the last decade, there have been significant technological advancements in the protein labelling field. Also, as per a paper published in October 2017 in ASC Publications, advanced fluorogenic protein labeling probes were utilized for the study of the morphological interplay between PreLamin and Mature Lamin. Advanced protein labeling methods offer better and improved opportunities for their use in varied applications.

Based on product, the global protein labeling market can be classified into reagents, kits, and services. The reagents segment constituted a signficant share of the protein labeling market in 2017. The kits segment is anticipated to expand at a rapid growth rate during the forecast period. In terms of application, the protein labeling market can be divided into immunological techniques, mass spectrometry, cell-based assays, fluorescence microscopy, and protein microarray. The cell-based assays segment is anticipated to expand at a rapid CAGR during the forecast period. Based on labelling technique, the global protein labeling market can be categorized into in-vivo and in-vitro. The in vitro segment accounted for a significant share of the global protein labeling market in 2017.

Based on region, the global protein labelling market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America held a leading share of the global protein labelling market in 2017, followed by Europe. This can be attributed to the presence of major protein labelling market players in the region. Key protein labelling market players are continuously engaged in enhancing their portfolios. Moreover, a rise in the adoption rate of this technique owing to the development of genomic sequencing and personalized medicine in North America is propelling the protein labelling market. In Asia, demand for motion preservation devices is expected to rise in the near future, owing to improvement in infrastructure in the health care field, favorable government policies, and increase in expenditure in the region.

Major  players operating in the global protein labelling market include Merck Millipore, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG, Promega Corporation, New England Biolabs,  LI-COR Inc., Eurogentec S.A., General Electric Healthcare Life Science, PerkinElmer Inc, and Kirkegaard & Perry Laboratories (KPL).
