Aptamers Market

Nucleic Acid Aptamers Is The Largest Segment Driving The Growth Of The Global Aptamers Market


The global Aptamers market is estimated to be valued at US$ 6265.49 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 18.4% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:

Aptamers are short strands of nucleic acids that bind to a specific target such as protein, ligand, or toxin. They are useful as diagnostic and therapeutic agents due to their ability to bind with high affinity and specificity.

Market key trends:

Nucleic acid aptamers are generated through Systematic Evolution of Ligands by Exponential enrichment (SELEX) technique which allows developing aptamers against various targets. This segment holds the largest market share due to high adoption of aptamers in diagnostics, research, and clinical development. The other key trends include increasing R&D investments by players for developing novel aptamers against various diseases and development of artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques to generate aptamers in a cost effective and rapid manner.

SWOT Analysis

Strength: Aptamers have high specificity and affinity for targets. They can be chemically synthesized and have low risk of triggering an immune response.

Weakness: Development of aptamers is expensive and time-consuming process. They also have relatively short shelf life compared to monoclonal antibodies.

Opportunity: Growing applications of aptamers in diagnostics, therapeutics and other areas due to their advantages over antibodies. Increasing R&D investments by pharmaceutical companies in development of aptamer-based drugs and diagnostics.

Threats: Safety issues related to aptamers may slow down their clinical adoption. Established market position of existing medical technologies poses challenges for aptamer-based solutions.

Key Takeaways

The Global Aptamers Market Size is expected to witness high growth, exhibiting CAGR of 18.4% over the forecast period, due to increasing R&D investments by pharma companies and growing applications of aptamers.
