Specialty enzymes are employed in various diagnostic applications such as DNA manipulation and sequencing. Decline in cost of DNA manipulation and sequencing is projected to drive demand and increase usage of enzymes in research and biotechnology and diagnostic applications. Increase in geriatric population in the developed countries is also anticipated to propel demand for diagnostic enzymes. Diagnostic and research & biotechnology enzymes will witness the fastest growth, as advances in diagnostic tests due to decline in DNA sequencing costs are likely to lead to increase in testing in agricultural, food, and medical applications. Moreover, large pharmaceutical companies continue to boost research and development spending on biologics to expand their new drug pipelines.

The global diagnostic specialty enzymes market is in the growth stage. Major players such as Codexis, Inc., Amano Enzymes, Inc., Biocatalysts Ltd., and Advanced Enzymes Technologies Ltd. have strong presence in the global diagnostic specialty enzymes market. In the past few years, the global diagnostic specialty enzymes market has witnessed high investments by various multinational enzyme manufacturers such as F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd., Novozymes, Codexis, and Biocatalysts. The global market is driven by continued investment in biotechnology and genetics, as pharmaceutical companies rely on biotechnology to overcome difficulties in bringing successful new small molecule drugs to the market. For example, in 2017, Codexis, Inc. spent US$ 29.6 Mn on research and development (25% higher than that in 2016). The company primarily invests in research and development for the development of diagnostic enzymes. Additionally, rapid medical devices provide instant results and preferred by majority of people for early diagnosis of diseases. Early diagnosis enables people to avail better treatment options. The Clinical Infectious Disease division of Oxford Journals stated that every year thousands of adults and adolescents die or are hospitalized due to diseases that could have been prevented by vaccination.
