Global Genome Editing Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global genome editing market was worth USD 4.85 billion in 2023. The global market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.42% from 2024 to 2029 and be worth USD 10.88 billion by 2029 from USD 5.55 billion in 2024.

Genome editing is used to change the DNA sequence of an organism. To do this, various types of enzymes such as CRISPR/Cas9, TALENs, or ZFNs are used as these can make such changes in the genomes. Genome editing is used to cure genetically inherited diseases, enhance the quality of crops, and provide valuable insights to understand the behind the story of genetic diseases, due to which the adoption of genome editing is growing rapidly. The usage of genome editing is not limited to life sciences but also has a presence in medicinal and agricultural industries. In the coming years, genome editing is predicted to play a significant role in the biotechnological industry.

MARKET DRIVERS

The growing production of genetically modified crops is promoting the genome editing market growth.

The usage of genome editing techniques to develop new genetically modified crops is on the rise. Currently, genome editing is being used in genetically modified crops to better their yield, provide the capacity to fight against pests and diseases, and make them capable of handling various environmental conditions. The need for genetically modified crops is growing significantly worldwide owing to the increasing population and rising need for increased food production. In the same ratio, the involvement of genome editing in genetically modified crops is increasing and resulting in market growth.

The growing R&D expenditure and rapid adoption of technological developments to upgrade genome editing capabilities are further propelling the genome editing market growth.

The global genome editing market is further progressing due to the more significant number of application areas such as therapeutics, mutation and agriculture, and biotechnology. These technologies offer many openings in crop improvement in gene-targeted exchange therapy, which is not yet grasped. For crop improvements, homologous recombination is an effective procedure and is expected to drive the global genomic editing market in the future. Furthermore, the scope of the genomic editing market is rising due to increasing applications and diseases. Genome editing has a substantial range to treat a diversity of cancers, genetically affected cells, and agents of infectious diseases such as parasites, viruses, bacteria, and others.

Furthermore, the growing focus of government and private organizations to invest in research and developments of genome editing, the rising number of applications in therapeutics, agriculture, biotechnology, and mutation fields, and to treat of genetically affected cells and various infections are likely to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the global genome editing market over the forecast period.

MARKET RESTRAINTS

Ethical issues related to crop genomic editing are one of the major factors hampering the growth of the genome editing market.

Technical limitations are another notable factor inhibiting market growth. Factors such as regulatory issues, high costs associated with genome editing technology, poor awareness among people in some countries, and the availability of alternative technologies are anticipated to showcase a negative impact on the growth of the genome editing market. In addition, concerns for animal welfare can rise at all generation phases, and the life duration of genetically engineered animals hinders the global genome editing market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global genome editing market

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a mixed impact on the growth of the global genome editing market. On the positive end, scientists have been using CRISPR technology to develop rapid diagnostic tests for SARS-COV-2. In addition, scientists are looking at CRISPR as a potential therapeutic utilized in targeted enzymatic activity to destroy the coronavirus RNA and prevent virus replication. Technology-based gene-editing systems play a vital role in defense against infection. Due to COVID-19, the demand for gene therapy has grown significantly as it is considered one of the potential treatment options for COVID-19.

On the other hand, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in decreased funding for genome editing, closure of laboratories, supply chain disruptions, and delays in clinical trials, which had a negative impact on the growth of the genome editing market. Likewise, the genome editing market has experienced a mixed impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, considering the reduced impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and growing habituation toward new normalization by people and companies, the genome editing market is anticipated to showcase a healthy CAGR during the forecast period.
