Synthetic Biology Market: Competitive Landscape and Key Developments

In August 2021, New England Biolabs announced the release of its newest loop-mediated is sthermal amplification (LAMP) products: the WarmStart Multi-Purpose LAMP/RT-LAMP 2X Master Mix (with UDG) and the WarmStart Fluorescent LAMP/RT-LAMP Kit (with UDG), which combines the master mix and LAMP fluorescent dye in one convenient kit. The new master mix and kit enable researchers to perform rapid, high-throughput detection of targeted segments of DNA or RNA using various amplification detection methods.

In April 2022, Agilent Technologies Inc. announced the expansion of CE-IVD marking in the European Union for its PD-L1 IHC 28-8 pharmDx as an aid in identifying esophageal squamous cell carcinoma patients for treatment with Bristol Myers Squibb’s PD-1-targeted immunotherapeutic OPDIVO (nivolumab), in combination with fluoropyrimidine and platinum-based chemotherapy or OPDIVO in combination with YERVOY (ipilimumab). These combined treatments provide new hope for patients diagnosed with these cancers.

In April 2022, Merck KGaA launched the first-ever antibody to achieve ACT label designation. ZooMAb antibodies received the lowest Environmental Impact Factor (EIF) scores in the chemicals and reagents category.

Global synthetic biology market is segmented by region into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and South & Central America. In North America, the U.S. is the largest market for synthetic biology. Asia Pacific is expected to account for the fastest global synthetic biology market growth.. Asia-pacific region will have lucrative growth opportunities during the forecast period due to government initiatives taken in the region. For instance, in November 2017, China launched the first synthetic biology association to support the market’s growth. This association promotes academic research and communication in synthetic biology; it further enhances the comprehensive competitiveness of the Shenzhen synthetic biology industry and domestic and foreign influence. While, North America has huge market potential, followed by Europe in the overall synthetic biology market, which is attributed to government funds, investments made by the major companies, conferences held for the awareness regarding synthetic biology, technological advancements in the field of genomics, and higher acceptance by the consumers. However, the MEA and SCAM will also show a relatively lower opportunity in the next few years.

Synthetic biology is an emerging concept that has numerous applications in the chemicals, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, and energy industries. Various start-ups offer gene synthesis products/services for biological processes. For example, Benchling provides CAD tools, GenScript offers gene synthesis, Ginkgo Bioworks assists in organism engineering, Transcripts (a bioinformatics company) offers solutions facilitating cloud labs/automation, and Glowee offers consumer products. Further, 56 synthetic biology businesses raised more than US$ 3 billion in equity financing in the first half of 2020, compared to 65 companies raising US$ 1.9 billion during the same period in 2020. The new generation of biopharma businesses uses synthetic biology to improve cell treatment and gene therapy and support early cancer detection. Some synthetic biology firms with the most funding in the first half of 2020 are listed below.
