Synthetic Biology Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Elevating Growth in Urbanization – The population movement from rural to urban regions, the concomitant decline in the number of individuals living in rural areas, and the manner in which societies adjust to this transition are also included as a major growth factor. Urbanization is significantly increasing all over the world and is estimated to increase more over the forecast period. Globally, 55% of people lived in cities in the year 2018, and 68% are expected to do so by the year 2050. The urbanization rate is rising as more individuals are showing the tendency of moving to urban areas. As a result, the demand for sustainable and renewable energy sources has been growing, which has increased the usage of synthetic biology for different activities.
  • Increasing Healthcare Spending – According to the latest spending data, global healthcare spending has increased over the past two decades, effectively doubling from 8.5% in the year 2000 to USD 8.5 trillion in the year 2019, increasing GDP reached 9.8%. The boom is estimated continue during the forecast period.
  • Rising Investments in Synthetic Biology Sector: Governments and private companies are investing heavily in research and development activities in the field of synthetic biology. According to a report, the global synthetic biology industry is expected to attract investments worth nearly USD 17 billion by the year 2025.
  • Rising Focus on Renewable Energy: The world is moving towards renewable energy sources, and synthetic biology can be used to create biofuels and other renewable energy sources. The increasing focus on renewable energy is expected to boost the global synthetic biology market. The world has seen a significant increase in renewable energy generation capacity in recent years. As of the end of the year 2020, renewable energy had a total installed capacity of 2,799 GW, which represents an increase of 45% compared to 2015.
  • Growth in Research Spending – Growth in the global market during the forecast period can be further attributed to increased investment in research and development activities to continuously find more viable solutions for synthetic biology. Research reports show that global R&D spending has more than tripled in real terms since 2000, rising from about USD 680 billion to more than USD 2.5 trillion in the year 2019.

Challenges

  • Ethical concerns: The use of synthetic biology raises ethical concerns about the creation and modification of life forms, the potential misuse of technology, and the impact on society and the environment. This has led to debates and discussions about the regulation and governance of synthetic biology.
  • Intellectual property rights
  • Regulatory challenges

Synthetic Biology Segmentation

Application (Non-healthcare, Healthcare)

The global synthetic biology market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into non-healthcare, and healthcare. Out of the two types of applications, the healthcare segment is estimated to gain the largest market share of about ~60% in the year 2035. The growth of the segment can be accredited to the presence of large number of patients requiring treatment in the healthcare industry. The hospitals in the industry are also growing rapidly in number, which is estimated to positively influence the segmental growth. For instance, by the year 2022 there was noted to be approximately 6,100 hospitals in the United States. Hospitals provide a wide range of medical care. Physicians, called hospital doctors, typically specialize in internal medicine, pediatrics, or general practice. They have the knowledge to solve common problems and the resources to solve more complex medical problems. Hospitals may also offer specialized care, such as neurology, obstetrics and gynecology, and oncology. By definition of a hospital, a county hospital is typically a primary medical facility in a region with numerous intensive care and mobile beds for patients requiring long-term care. These factors are predicted to boost the growth of the market in the forecast period.

End-user (Genome Engineering, Bioinformatics)

The global synthetic biology market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end user into genome engineering, and bioinformatics. Amongst these two segments, the genome engineering segment is expected to garner a significant share of around ~45% in the year 2035. The growth of the segment can be accredited to the advancements in genome editing technologies. The development of genome editing technologies such as CRISPR-Cas9, TALENs, and zinc-finger nucleases has revolutionized the field of genome engineering. These technologies enable precise and efficient editing of DNA, which has led to the development of new applications in areas such as agriculture, healthcare, and biotechnology. Genome engineering can be used to develop personalized medicines by modifying genes and cells. With the increasing focus on precision medicine, the demand for genome engineering is expected to grow in the coming years. Genome engineering can be used to develop crops with improved traits such as disease resistance, drought tolerance, and higher yields. The growing demand for sustainable agriculture and the need to feed a growing population is expected to drive the growth of genome engineering in the agriculture sector.
