COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the healthcare system worldwide, owing to strict lockdown and restrictions on transportation of raw materials that caused disruptions in the overall global supply chain. The initial phase of the pandemic observed a slight slowdown in some non-COVID-19-related research activities that rely on DNA synthesis. However, the COVID-19 pandemic positively impacted the DNA synthesis market growth at the later stage of the year. DNA synthesis played major role for the development of COVID-19 diagnostic tests and vaccines. Additionally, significant role of DNA synthesis in various aspects of research and development related to COVID-19 highlighted the importance of DNA synthesis in medical research for the development of new therapies, thereby positively influencing the overall market growth for the coming years.

DNA Synthesis Market Trends

Investments in DNA synthesis by market players have been increasing over the years as the field of synthetic biology and genetic engineering continues to advance. High investments in research to unveil novel technology will positively influence the market growth. For instance, in 2021, Molecular Assemblies received USD 25.8 million funding from Casdin Capital to enhance enzymatic DNA synthesis technology. Similarly, in March 2021, Twist Bioscience announced USD 100 million private placement investment from several investors, including Casdin Capital, Fidelity Management & Research Company, and Viking Global Investors to advance their DNA synthesis platform. Thus, the increasing investments in DNA synthesis industry is expected to fuel the market growth.

DNA Synthesis Market Restraint

Stringent government regulations and guidelines in DNA synthesis are put in place to ensure responsible and safe use of this powerful technology. DNA synthesis has the potential to revolutionize various fields, including medicine, agriculture, and biotechnology. However, it also carries certain risks, such as the creation of harmful pathogens or misuse for unethical purposes. Hence, governments require DNA synthesis facilities and researchers to obtain licenses and register with relevant authorities. Additionally, regulatory bodies may require regular reporting of DNA synthesis activities, including the DNA sequences synthesized, purpose of synthesis, and the quantities produced. Such stringent regulations and guidelines surrounding DNA synthesis may hinder the market growth to some extent.
