Global Aptamers Market to Reach US$ 12.9 Billion by 2026, Impelled by Increasing Usage in Drug Discovery

Published on Aug 12, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Aptamers Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026,” the global aptamers market size reached US$ 4.3 Billion in 2020. Aptamers are single-stranded oligonucleotides that bind various molecules with high affinity and specificity. They are easy to prepare, versatile, highly sensitive, less toxic, and nonimmunogenic. As a result, they are employed in nanotechnology, nanoscience, and nanomedicine as molecular recognition elements. Besides this, as they offer high stability and scalability, aptamers are also utilized in rapid diagnostics, biosensors, and biotechnological applications across the globe.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Aptamers Market Trends:

There is currently a rise in the use of aptamers in biomarker and drug discovery as research agents, biosensors, and tools across the globe. This, along with the growing prevalence of severe diseases, such as cancer, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), and cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, represents one of the key factors catalyzing the demand for effective assay techniques based on aptamer therapy. Moreover, aptamers are chemically synthesized antibodies that eliminate batch-to-batch variation and require less time for development. As they also have low molecular weight, they are extensively used in therapeutic and biotechnological applications. Furthermore, leading players are utilizing advanced procedures, such as the chemical modification process, to enhance the therapeutic properties and increase the nuclease resistance of aptamers. This, coupled with considerable investments in research and development (R&D) activities to improve diagnostic devices and drugs and their carriers, is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 12.9 Billion by 2026, expanding at a CAGR of 20% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
