Posted by Prabha Mahajan on September 27th, 2022

According to our new research study on "Synthetic Biology Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis – by Products (Enzymes, Chassis Organisms, Oligonucleotides, and Xeno-Nucleic Acids), Technology (Measurement & Modeling, Cloning & Sequencing, Genome Engineering, Gene Synthesis, Nanotechnology, and Others), and Application (Medical Applications, Industrial Applications, Food and Agriculture, Environmental Applications, and Others), the market is expected to reach US$ 37,850.85 million by 2028 from US$ 10,544.16 million in 2021; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 20.0% during 2021–2028.

Synthetic biology is a branch of biology and engineering, which involves designing and constructing new devices, systems and biological parts as well as re-design of existing, natural biological systems for various application in the field of food & agriculture, medicine, and other areas. For example, Benchling operates in CAD Tools, GenScript offers gene synthesis, Ginkgo Bioworks works for the organism engineering, and Transcriptis which is into bioinformatics operates for cloud labs/automation, Glowee offers consumer products, among the other companies operating in the synthetic biology. Such diversified applications of synthetic biology can be the key drivers for the growth of synthetic biology. Another major reason for the market growth is the investments and developments made by the companies operating in the synthetic biology market. Advanced technologies in synthetic biology add value to clinical trials for inherited diseases and this is likely to propel the growth of the global synthetic biology market.

The global synthetic biology market is experiencing a steep rise in the present scenario and is expected to witness a significant growth in the coming years. The synthetic biology market comprises of well-established players and tier 2 & tier 3 companies across the globe. In the recent years, there has been an increase in the investment by manufactures to deliver the most advanced technology to various industries. The technological advancement as headed emergence of the New Bioeconomy, which is the replacement of petrochemical-based manufacturing and fermentation-based manufacturing products. Moreover, there has been a significant increase in the investments by public and private investors in synthetic biology research & manufacturing.
