Oligonucleotide synthesis refers to the process of constructing short DNA or RNA molecules, called oligonucleotides, in a predetermined sequence. These can range from just a few bases to around 200 nucleotides in length. The process is accomplished chemically in a controlled laboratory environment, typically using solid phase phosphoramidite chemistry. In this method, nucleotides are sequentially added to a growing chain, each addition involving a series of chemical reactions. This technology enables scientists to generate custom-made oligonucleotides for various applications including gene synthesis, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), gene editing tools, such as CRISPR-Cas9, and molecular diagnostic tests. Advances in oligonucleotide synthesis have dramatically accelerated research in genomics and molecular biology, underpinning many breakthroughs in medical and biological research.

The rising prevalence of genetic diseases among the masses majorly drives the global market. This necessitates the development of novel therapeutic strategies, where oligonucleotide-based therapies play a significant role. For instance, therapies using small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) and antisense oligonucleotides are being investigated and utilized in the treatment of genetic disorders, such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy and spinal muscular atrophy. As such, the growing prevalence of genetic diseases drives the demand on the global level. Along with this, the growth of bioinformatics and data science has a direct impact on the oligonucleotide synthesis industry. The escalating capacity to analyze large genomic datasets is also positively influencing the market.
