“Synthetic biology” is a newly emerging multidisciplinary field that explores the application of engineering principles to biology. Its objective is to construct and redesign biological systems and elements that are not found in the natural world. By combining the rapidly expanding discipline of genomics with the chemical synthesis of DNA, synthetic biology allows researchers to quickly produce sequences of DNA that are classified and assemble them into new genomes. Owing to advances in the cost and speed of DNA synthesis, researchers can now create and synthesize modified bacterial chromosomes that can be used to produce advanced biofuels, bioproducts, renewable chemicals, and bio-based specialty chemicals (pharmaceutical intermediates, fine chemicals, food ingredients), as well as products for the healthcare sector.

Technology Insights

The PCR technology segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. PCR is often used in gene synthesis and DNA assembly processes within synthetic biology. Fragments of DNA can be amplified using PCR technologies and then assembled to create synthetic genes or genetic constructs. In addition, PCR technology, including real-time PCR, is widely used in diagnostics. Synthetic biology applications in medicine, such as the development of synthetic diagnostics or engineered organisms for medical purposes, may leverage PCR for detection and monitoring.

Furthermore, the growing product launches in the healthcare industry using this technology are also propelling the market expansion during the projected period. For instance, in November 2023, to broaden the range of applications for digital PCR technology, QIAGEN introduced three new kits for use with its QIAcuity systems in addition to a significant software upgrade. These applications include cell and gene therapies, DNA and RNA quantification, and food and pharmaceutical safety.

Product Insights

The enzymes segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate over the analysis period. Enzymes play a crucial role in synthetic biology, contributing to various aspects of the design, construction, and manipulation of biological systems. Enzymes are biological catalysts that facilitate and accelerate biochemical reactions, and they are extensively used in synthetic biology applications for tasks such as DNA manipulation, gene editing, and pathway construction. The synthetic biology market is significantly influenced by the demand for enzymes as essential tools in various processes.
