Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024 - 2036

Genome Editing Market size is anticipated to surpass USD 69.6 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 21.1% during the forecast period 2024- 2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of genome editing was over USD 7 billion. The market's growth is primarily due to the high prevalence of cancer around the globe. In 2020, the World Health Organization reported that approximately 10 million people succumbed to cancer worldwide. The most common types of cancer that caused fatalities were lung cancer, which accounted for 1.8 million deaths, colon and rectal cancer with 916,000 deaths, liver cancer with 830,000 deaths, stomach cancer with 769,000 deaths, and breast cancer with 685,000 deaths. Furthermore, diseases like human papillomavirus (HPV) and hepatitis have been found to cause about 30% of cancer cases in low- and middle-income countries.

The market is growing due to advancements in gene editing tools, government funding, and an increase in genomics projects. The rise in cancer and genetic diseases and the development of CRISPR-based diagnostic tools for COVID-19 are also contributing. CRISPR-Cas9 dominates with 65% revenue share, expected to reach 70% by 2025. High device costs and ethical concerns hinder growth, but emerging markets and drug discovery opportunities hold promise.

Genome Editing Sector Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Oncology Spending -The economic expenditure on cancer treatment and genome editing development is increasing year by year in various healthcare fields around the world. Global oncology spending in the year 2021 was found to be around USD 185 billion. For comparison, six years ago oncology spending was about USD 85 billion.
  • Rise in Research Spending - the global market is expected to grow due to increased investment in research and development activities aimed at finding more effective solutions for genome editing such as Cancer Biomarkers. According to research reports, global spending on R&D has increased more than threefold in real terms since 2000, with the amount rising from roughly USD 680 billion to over USD 2.5 trillion in 2019.
  • Prevalence of Cancer Worldwide -In the year 2019, 18 million new cancer cases and 10 million cancer deaths were observed worldwide. Population growth and aging worldwide alone are expected to result in 27.5 million new cancer cases and 16.3 million cancer deaths.


  • High Cost of Genome Editing Systems - Genome editing systems are specialized technologies used to precisely modify genetic material in living organisms. However, their high cost can hinder market growth.
  • Lack of skilled professionals.
  • The growing concern over risks and ethical issues associated with genome editing.
