MEA Aptamers Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The size of the Middle East & Africa aptamers market is forecasted to be worth USD 14.3 million in 2023 and USD 17.59 million by the end of 2028, growing at a CAGR of 4.23% from 2023 to 2028.

The Aptamers market in MEA is projected to be fuelled by the increasing trend of R&D investments in pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, technological advancements in Aptamers, and the growing prevalence of life-threatening diseases across the region. Also, the patent expiry of SELEX (systematic creation of ligands by exponential improvement technology) and the low price and great productivity of aptamers in binding to big molecules associated with antibodies are driving the market growth.

In Addition, the increasing investment and funding by the government and private organizations for developing healthcare infrastructure and research activities are enabling new market entrants and key players to introduce their new aptamer services for different applications expected to expand the market growth. Furthermore, diseases such as cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome are the major factors influencing the demand for new and effective detection assays based on aptamer therapy.  

The demand for the new diagnostic assay and increasing research activity in emerging markets such as South Africa, UAE, and Saudi Arabia uplifts regional market growth. In addition, efforts by many prominent players to create novel aptamers for research and development applications are significant drivers driving this segment's dominance. Because of its unique chemical characteristics, the Autobody technology requires less development time and provides effective Adsorption, Distribution, Metabolism, and Excretion (ADME) qualities.

However, unfavorable reimbursement policies and a lack of awareness about the Aptamers are limiting the market growth. Also, incomplete regulatory policies and a lack of understanding about aptamers and technical expertise may restrain the overall MEA market growth.
