Synthetic Biology Market Outlook To 2026: Emerging Trends, New Growth Opportunit

Posted by satish on April 12th, 2019

Increasing concerns regarding depleting natural resources of oil reservoirs is propelling demand for replacement for fossil fuels. Biofuel production is increasing steadily with promising results. Furthermore, rising concerns regarding climate change and energy security makes biofuel an efficient alternative for fossil fuels. In this context, synthetic biology has shown promising result for biofuel production. Synthetic biology approaches can be used in reducing cost of celluloses and, thereby, of biofuels. Moreover, various companies are engaged in collaboration and partnership activities to use their expertise in the synthetic biology to produce cost-efficient biofuels.

Growing adoption of synthetic biology in emerging applications such as genetically modified crops (GMCs) in agriculture, green chemicals, and biofuels in the industrial applications will offer lucrative growth opportunity in the near future.

Since 2014, rising engagement of various investors to fund the synthetic biology companies including established and startup companies is continuously increasing. For instance, according to SynBioBeta LLC January 2018 data findings, 50 companies in the synthetic biology market raised around US$ 1.7 billion for the development of innovative synthetic biology technologies.

Market Dynamics

Furthermore, growing research and development (R&D) activities to develop new technologies in synthetic biology by government and private organizations and increasing demand for efficient alternative therapy to design and market active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) in drug diagnosis and therapeutics are other growth factors, which will drive the synthetic biology market growth.

Synthetic biology is majorly used in applications such as bioremediation, gene synthesis, industrial enzyme production, drug discovery, therapeutics, and green chemicals, among others. However, utilization of these applications is increasing concern regarding the risk and ethical issues associated with synthetic biology, which include off-target mutation development, environmental misbalance, and various other illegal usage of DNA sequencing.

Furthermore, the regulations that govern synthetic biology are not designed specifically for synthetic biology and are inadequate to regulate new gene editing applications such as CRISPR gene editing. The current legal framework focuses on genetically modified products and the procedures to make them, create a hurdle in the growth of synthetic biology market. Furthermore, stringent regulations related to the application of genetically modified organism (GMOs) in developed economies such as the U.S. and Europe reflects the concern related to the adoption of synthetic biology in the near future.
