The Gene Editing Market is growing by leaps and bounds as the demand for such from both agriculture and healthcare sectors are on the rise. Gene editing is a process that involves insertion, deletion or replacement of DNA in the genome sequence of a living organism which can be achieved by using molecular scissors. It can be applied to both plants and animals. The life science sector across the globe is expected to benefit much from the engineering technology. Its applications in several areas such as mutation, therapeutics, and agriculture biotechnology are providing traction to the market. The technique has huge opportunity in agriculture as it can better crop production. The global gene editing market is expecting a significant rise by 18.30% CAGR during the forecast period (2018-2023). A report published by Market Research Future (MRFR) includes an overview of the market with special emphasis on the segmental analysis and factors that can contribute to the growth of the market. Its use in the healthcare sector to develop new medicines can open up avenues for the gene editing market. The technique has the prospect to treat genetically affected cells, cancer, diseases caused by viruses, bacteria, and parasites.
However, ethical issues regarding the alteration of the human genome can be seen as a market irritant during the forecast period. At the same time, genetically-edited animals are also raising concerns regarding the quality of products. Despite these factors, gene editing has a colossal prospect in the healthcare sector which can ensure the expected growth in the coming years.
The global gene editing market can be segmented by methods, applications and end users for better understanding and analysis.
Based on methods, the gene editing market includes clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR), transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALEN), zinc finger nucleases (ZFN), antisense technology and others.
On the basis of application, the gene editing market can be segmented into plant genetic engineering, animal genetic engineering, microorganism’s genetic engineering, and gene therapy.
Based on the end-users, the Talen Gene Editing Companies comprises biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and contract research organizations.
Region-specific analysis of the gene editing market includes namely the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and the Middle East and Africa (MEA).
The Americas is the leading with the maximum share of the global market. It is the presence of the U.S. that is impacting the growth the most. Infrastructural superiority, sufficient funding from both private and public bodies, advanced technologies in the research sector are providing a tailwind to the market.
Europe is following the footsteps of the Americas. Similar features have given the regional market prominence. In addition, the presence of several organizations involved in such researches is promoting the market further.
The APAC region is expecting the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Emerging economies are investing significantly to provide a push to the regional market. Moreover, market behemoths are targeting this location to expand their business as its prospects are quite high owing to cost-effective associated expenditures.
Integrated DNA Technologies, Inc. (U.S.), GenScript USA Inc. (U.S.), Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.), Lonza Group Ltd. (Switzerland), New England Biolabs, Inc. (U.S.), Horizon Discovery Group plc (U.K.), Sangamo Biosciences, Inc. (U.S.), OriGene Technologies, Inc. (U.S.), Sigma-Aldrich Corporation (U.S.), and Transposagen Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. (U.S.) are major companies of this gene editing market profiled in the report.
In 2018, scientists at The University of Texas at Austin discovered that in Cas9 the most popular enzyme used in CRISPR gene editing is, in reality, less effective and precise than CRISPR protein named Cas12a. The use of the latter would enhance the speed which is much necessary for such tests.
In March 2018, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced that the regulatory board would no longer control the genome testing in plants as they believe that it is perfectly safe and brings in new traits much quicker. This is a promising sign for the gene editing market. However, many are still arguing over the credibility of such decision as they believe that perfect process is still miles away.
