This report studies the global Keyhole Limpet Hemocyanin (KLH) market status and forecast, categorizes the global Keyhole Limpet Hemocyanin (KLH) market size (value & volume) by key players, type, application, and region. This report focuses on the top players in North America, Europe, China, Japan, Southeast Asia India and Other regions (Middle East & Africa, Central & South America).
This report studies the Keyhole Limpet Hemocyanin (KLH) market, KLH, which can be used as an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API), is a very large, high molecular weight, oxygen-carrying glycoprotein made of millions of atoms. There are two KLH subunit forms, KLH1 and KLH2, each composed of seven or eight functional units, with each functional unit having an oxygen binding site of two copper atoms. Keyhole limpet hemocyanin is an extremely large, heterogeneous glycosylated protein consisting of subunits with a molecular weight of 350,000 and 390,000 in aggregates with molecular weights of 4,500,000-13,000,000. Each domain of a KLH subunit contains two copper atoms that together bind a single oxygen molecule (O2). The KLH protein is potently immunogenic yet safe in humans and is therefore highly prized as a vaccine carrier protein.
KLH protein is derived only from the hemolymph of the giant keyhole limpet (megathura crenulata), which is native only to a limited stretch of the Pacific Ocean coastline along Southern California and Baja California, Mexico.
KLH can be used as an active pharmaceutical ingredient and has high medical value. Due to high technology barrier and scarce raw material, there are few companies able to produce KLH and biosyn highly monopolizes the market at the moment.
The global keyhole limpet hemocyanin production will increase to 2132g in 2017, from 1570g in 2012, it is estimated that the global keyhole limpet hemocyanin demand will develop with a CAGR of 4.03% in the coming five years.
Megathura crenulata is native to rocky coasts of Southern California, United States to Baja California, Mexico and are found at shallow depths below the low tide line. American companies dominate the keyhole limpet hemocyanin product market. But downstream demand of keyhole limpet hemocyanin mainly is concentrated in Europe. Owning to immature technology, there is no company in China produce KLH for the time being.
The global Keyhole Limpet Hemocyanin (KLH) market is valued at 9 million US$ in 2017 and will reach 10 million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of 2.0% during 2018-2025.
