Rising adoption of gene therapy is driving the India Gene Synthesis Market

Gene synthesis refers to the chemical synthesis of DNA strand base by base. Different DNA replication that occurs in cells or by Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), gene synthesis does not require a template strand. Rather, gene synthesis involves the step-wise addition of nucleotides to a single-stranded molecule, which then serves as a template for the creation of a complementary strand. Gene synthesis is the fundamental technology upon which the field of synthetic biology has been built.

The technological progressions in gene synthesis have modernized synthetic biology research. Scientists are no longer limited to classical methods of manipulating a single gene at a time; they now have the power to design or reprogram entire genomes and cells. The newly synthesized viral genomes are expected to boost vaccine development, eliminate cancer cells, and produce sustainable biofuels, in the coming future. We can detect and break down environmental pollutants in the soil, air, and water. Biotechnology and Life Science researchers and academia across many research discipline areas are accelerating the advancements in healthcare, agriculture, energy, and other fields of human endeavor, through the use of newly synthesized genomes.

Data Bridge Market Research analyses that the Gene Synthesis Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 25.5% in the forecast period of 2023 to 2030 and is expected to reach USD 459.81 million by 2030. The component segment is projected to propel the growth of the market with the rising adoption of gene therapy, expansion of synthetic biology, and rising interest in gene synthesis in the field of molecular biology.

Key Findings of the Study

Gene Synthesis Market

Increased Prevalence of Chronic Infectious Diseases

Bacterial and viral diseases are rapidly expanding due to the rising prevalence of infectious diseases in the world. As a result, the demand for novel and effective therapies has increased to fight against such deadly diseases. These diseases can be cured by using chemical drugs and biological therapies, including gene therapy.

By applying genomics, the management of infectious and endemic diseases has been enhanced. It also allows us to understand emerging drug resistance and identify targets for new therapeutics and vaccines. For the treatment of infectious diseases, gene therapy has attracted many researchers as it can be treated by using recombinant DNA technology, DNA &RNA ribozyme, and single-chain antibodies. With a rising need for personalized treatments, drug development, vaccine research, and diagnostics tailored to the specific genetic characteristics of pathogens and individuals, gene synthesis becomes a pivotal tool. Investments in R&D and infrastructure are expected to increase as the Indian healthcare system and biotechnology sector pivot to tackle these diseases. This, in turn, is expected to drive market growth, offering novel avenues for the creation of targeted therapies, rapid vaccine development, precise diagnostics, and in-depth genetic research focused on chronic infectious diseases.
