Demand for Synthetic Biology Techniques to Remain High in Healthcare Sector Due to Rising Prevalence of Chronic Diseases

On the basis of application, healthcare will continue to account for the lion’s share of the overall market revenue throughout the forecast period. The rapidly growing global population along with the increasing incidence of chronic and infectious diseases is augmenting the growth of the segment. Synthetic biology has the potential to offer cost-effective and highly efficient drugs and vaccines with low side effects and enhanced nutrition. These drugs and vaccines can be used for the treatment of various diseases such as AIDS, cancer, malaria, and other infections. The agriculture segment is estimated to expand at a phenomenal CAGR of 52.5% during the forecast period owing to the ever-rising demand for food coupled with the declining availability of agricultural land.

Based on technology, genome engineering will continue to dominate the market until 2019. The technology is being increasingly adopted due to the fact that it helps in modifying a specific area of DNA, thereby offering better reproducibility. However, the biological components and integrated systems segment is poised to outpace other segments, progressing at a CAGR of 43.0% during the same period. The growth of this segment can be attributed to its potential of reducing the cost of producing large-scale biofuels and medicines.

North America to Outperform Europe Owing to Increasing Research and Development Efforts

Europe was the leading regional market in terms of revenue in 2016. The increasing government participation and funding for the development of synthetic biology are driving the growth of the region. Moreover, the growing applications of this technology in the field of health, energy, environment, and other areas are contributing to the growth of the region. However, the region is expected to lose its dominance to North America by the end of the forecast period.
