Pune, India, June 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global oligonucleotide synthesis market has been estimated to reach USD 6.5 billion in 2021 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 17.6% during the forecast period from 2021 to 2030. Oligonucleotides are suitable for research, diagnosis of diseases, therapies, forensics, medication discovery, agriculture, etc. The presence of a specific target DNA sequence may be identified by oligonucleotides in a range of biological and forensic applications.

Synthetic oligonucleotides are short stretches, assembled by chemical synthesis, of single stranded fragments of DNA. There is hardly one field in biology that does not use or does not have the potential to use synthetic DNA. Simultaneous development of techniques of rapid and efficient oligonucleotide synthesis and molecular biology techniques are the primary reason for such a revolution. In order to produce more efficient greener chemical synthesis, researchers use oligonucleotides.

By combining oligonucleotides into longer fragments which encode synthetic genes, bacteria, or leaven cells, specific enzymes can be produced (a type of protein). Oligonucleotides are likely to prove effective in treating a variety of medical conditions. They allow the development of therapies as a result of targeted, manipulated, silenced, and/or modulated malfunctioning genes. Thus, synthesized oligonucleotides' promising potential in different areas is driving market growth.

The growth of the oligonucleotide synthesis market is being driven by advances in oligonucleotide synthesis and increasing research activity in synthetic biology. Recent advances in synthesis techniques have resulted in an economic and rapid oligomer synthesis. Moreover, the synthesis of oligonucleotides has revolutionized the development of high-performance plants, new protective amino groups, and more effective coupling reagents.

The development of microarray technology has also supported the development of the oligonucleotide product for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes. For example, a great many oligonucleotide conjugates have been investigated with biological ligands that are increasingly used in the diagnosis of a number of inherited disorders. Advances in the synthesis of oligonucleotides based on microchip have also resulted in an increase in the production and cost of oligonucleotide synthesis.

In addition, advances in the technology of enzyme failure correction have reduced the incidence of synthesis errors. This progress has further encouraged the growth of the market for the synthesis of oligonucleotides. The growth of the oligonucleotides synthesis market in turn is expected to have a positive effect on personalized medicine. Personalized medicine is tailored to individual patient needs and preferences. Synthesis of oligonucleotide helps offer customized solutions to patients with diseases.

The advent of sensory RNA therapy in the biotechnology industry has gained enormous traction. With the synthesis of oligonucleotides, the application of custom medicine for the treatment of rare diseases has become possible. Patients can be treated and diagnosed more effectively with improvements in oligonucleotide synthesis. Therefore, an increasing focus on personalized medicine will provide the market players with ample opportunities.

Global Oligonucleotide Synthesis Market, By Product

By product, the global oligonucleotide synthesis market has been segmented into oligonucleotide, and reagents and equipment. In 2021, the oligonucleotide-based drug sector has held the largest share in the market for oligonucleotides synthesis. The increasing numbers of FDA-approved medicines and an extensive clinical pipeline of oligonucleotide-based medicines should drive the growth of this segment in the next few years.

Global Oligonucleotide Synthesis Market, By Type

By type, the global oligonucleotide synthesis market has been segmented into custom oligos and predesigned oligos. The customized synthesis of oligonucleotides is growing worldwide. As research and development in the field of synthetic biology are growing rapidly, the demand for high-end tailored oligos is rising.

An increase in the demand for quality improvisation to remove impurities and enhance its effectiveness has resulted in an increasing use of synthetic oligonucleotides in industry and university research. However, approximately 50% of the total cost of production is covered by the cost of cleaning, and continuous research is underway to identify upgraded methods to achieve the desired results. Examples include the implementation of non-chromatographic treatment methods and many internal modifications

Global Oligonucleotide Synthesis Market, By Application

By application, the global oligonucleotide synthesis market has been segmented into therapeutic application, diagnostic, research, and others. In 2021, oligonucleotide synthesis was the most important part of the market in the field of therapeutic applications. The growing use of oligos for the treatment of neurological diseases, contagious disorders, and rare genetic disorders (such as antisense oligos and siRNA) is expected to stimulate market growth.
