The primary purpose of gene editing or editing the genome is to alter an organism's DNA using various technologies. With this technique, genetic material can be introduced, deleted, or replaced at specific spots in the genome. The main benefits of applying next-generation genetic engineering to crops are increased crop yields, lower costs for producing food or drugs, less reliance on pesticides, and improvements in the composition of nutrients & food quality. Other benefits include greater food security and resilience to pests and diseases that crops are susceptible to. Over the projected period, increased funding for genetic research in developed nations, especially North America, will propel the market for gene editing. Transferring new DNA from the donor to the recipient changes the genetic structure.


The traditional approaches involve breeding plants and crossing plants with the appropriate traits. However, it has been noted that using conventional methods results in poor crops because of the use of wild variation plants. This made genetically altering crops via next-generation genetic engineering more necessary. Additional factors influencing the market's expansion include the advancement of gene therapy, the advancement of CRISPR gene editing technology, and funding from both the public and commercial sectors. In addition, the continued occurrence of infectious and chronic diseases, including malaria, HIV/AIDS, liver hepatitis, TB, and others, has resulted in a surge in the application of genetic engineering in recent years for treating these conditions.


Additionally, this component encourages market expansion. Recently, major investments in genomics have been made by governments all over the world, which has substantially accelerated the development of revolutionary genetic engineering technologies. Additionally, government and academic organizations have been able to do in-depth research on genome engineering thanks to the availability of federal funding. As a result, numerous editing strategies have been created for use in the sector. Human disorders like cancer, HIV infection, sickle cell disease, and cystic fibrosis are also treated and prevented through gene editing.


According to research conducted by Prof Dr. Alexander Probst, Archaea, which are microorganisms that frequently resemble bacteria in many ways, have been shown to employ the CRISPR-Cas system to fight parasites. The researchers discovered this after performing a thorough genomic analysis on more than 7,000 genomes using cutting-edge sequencing technologies. Microorganisms use the CRISPR-Cas system as a defense against viral invasion. This microbial immune system is used for targeted genetic modification in genetic engineering.


Genetic Engineering Market Trends



  • Increased incidence of genetic disorders is driving the market growth


Market CAGR for genetic engineering is driven by the rising number of genetic disorders. Market expansion is fueled by the growing application of genome engineering in treating chronic conditions. The use of transcriptome, genomic, or other multi-omics cells in the early, precise, and quick treatment of infectious and chronic diseases propels market expansion. The development of CRISPR gene editing technology, the advancement of gene therapy, and funding from the public and private sectors are further factors driving the market's growth. Aside from that, the continuous prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases, including HIV/AIDS, malaria, hepatitis, TB, and others, has led to an increase in the use of genetic engineering in treating these illnesses in recent years. This element promotes market expansion as well.


Governments worldwide have recently made large investments in the field of genomics, which has greatly aided in the advancement of novel genetic engineering technologies. Additionally, the availability of government financing has made it possible for government and university institutions to do extensive research on genome engineering. For instance, the Ministry of Innovation, Science, and Industry (Science) announced in March 2020 that Genome Canada would receive USD 15 million to support 11 genomic research initiatives in health, agriculture, and the environment. Provincial governments, companies, and research partners will invest USD 29.7 million to assist these research programs. The projects cover ovarian and cervical cancer research. There has been a tremendous increase in genomics research initiatives due to large government investments in the field. In turn, during the forecast period, this is anticipated to assist the expansion of the genetic engineering market. Thus, driving the genetic engineering market revenue.
