Gene Editing Market size to exceed USD 19.9 billion by 2030

  • Published Date: May 13, 2022

Gene Editing Market size is set to surpass USD 19.9 billion by 2030 owing to an increased funding for genomic research and technological advancements in gene editing tools, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Expansion of the biotechnology and biopharmaceutical industry and rising R&D expenditure in genomics are anticipated to drive the market growth. Moreover, increasing demand for synthetic genes along with increasing use of genetically modified organisms will foster the market growth during the forecast period.


Growing demand for synthetic genes in developed, as well as developing countries, will propel the market revenue

Rising demand for synthetic genes in developed as well developing countries will boost the gene editing market growth over the analysis period. Synthetic genes are more applicable for the production of genetically modified (GM) crops in developing economies. The synthetic genes modify the endogenous metabolic pathways of plants to improve their photosynthetic efficiency and nutritional quality of the plant.

 For this, researchers mainly prefer CRISPR/Cas9 technique for developing and modifying new crops. This technique also requires different government approvals for the production of genetically modified crops. Moreover, increasing demand for synthetic genes for drug development to treat cancer will significantly boost the gene editing market share over the forthcoming years.

Multiple applications of gene editing in animal genetic engineering will drive the industry share

Based on application, the animal genetic engineering segment accounted for around 27% market share in 2021 owing to rising consumption of dairy products obtained from domestic animals coupled with surging demand for animal products for feed additives, healthy livestock, and other supplies. Moreover, animal genetic engineering helps scientists to study and identify the desired animal breeds to obtain information on biological functions and its applications. Additionally, increasing research activities for the study and application of animal gene editing will contribute toward the gene editing market segment during the forecast period.

Some of the animal diseases are transmissible to humans leading to rising in focus towards genetic management of animal diseases. This disease management is important due to the increasing consumption of animal-based products such as milk, meat, poultry in urban middle-class populations.

Rising potential of Zinc Finger Nucleases (ZFNs) in genetic engineering field will ramp up the market growth

Based on technology, ZFNs segment exceeded USD 1.3 billion in 2021 owing to its multiple benefits and applications in gene editing. ZFNs is a type of synthetic DNA-binding protein that allows for targeted gene editing by causing double-strand breaks in DNA at user-specified location. Therefore, ZFNs technique is applicable for functional genomics/target validation, cell-based screening, and cell line optimization.

Moreover, ZNFs are utilized in a wide range of biotechnological and life science applications to modify the genomes of animals and plants for research. As a result, such varied applications of ZNFs are expected to contribute significantly to the overall market growth during the forecast period. The businesses will modify the expression of major genes involved in neurological disorders using Sangamon’s proprietary zinc finger protein technology delivered through the adeno-associated virus. Additionally, ZFNs can target specific DNA sequences with specially built Zinc finger domains, allowing them to accurately modify the genomes of higher species.
