Global Genome Editing Market Segment Forecasts 2021-2028: Cell Line Engineering Dominates the Market -

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Genome Editing Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Technology (CRISPR, ZFN, TALEN), by Delivery Method, by Application, by Mode, by End-use, by Region, and Segment Forecasts, 2021-2028" report has been added to's offering.

The global genome editing market size is expected to reach USD 19.4 billion by 2028. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 22.9% from 2021 to 2028. The success of CRISPR/Cas9 technology in 2020 coupled with technological advances in Transcription Activator-Like Effector Nucleases (TALENs) and Zinc-finger Nucleases (ZFNs) with respect to efficiency has driven the market.

Research communities are exploring the potential of gene-modification tools like CRISPR as a potential rapid screening solution for the COVID-19 genome. For instance, in December 2020, researchers from Gladstone Institutes developed a CRISPR-based test that uses smartphones to deliver results. Similarly in June 2020, researchers from Stanford University have developed -PAC-MAN a gene-modification tool based on CRISPR technology. This tool destroys SARS-CoV-2 inside human cells.

Increasing application of the gene-modification tools in therapeutic research has resulted in the rising number of advanced therapeutics entering clinical trials. Furthermore, the use of artificial intelligence to advance the implementation of novel gene modification systems exhibits great potential for the technology developer. This is anticipated to greatly favor the market revenue in the foreseeable future.
