Aptamers Market – Detailed Study Regarding Major Factors Influencing the Growth

Aptamers are single stranded DNA or RNA molecules which are extremely versatile and binds targets with high specificity and selectivity as it has a tendency to form helices and single-stranded loops. Aptamer can be used against various molecule target such as toxins, peptides, proteins, viruses and whole cell. Aptamers are designed for therapeutic use in the body due to it stability and high bioavailability. Furthermore, aptamers are nucleotide analogues of antibodies and aptamer generation is significantly cheaper and easier as compared to that of production of antibodies.

Factors driving demand for global aptamers market includes continuous development for high-quality aptamers by research institutes and manufacturers. Furthermore, increasing number of applications of aptamers is expected to drive the global aptamers market over the forecast period. However, stringent regulations and lack of awareness regarding the use of aptamers is expected to limit the market growth over the forecast period.
