Recombinant DNA Technology Market

Recombinant DNA Technology is Expected to be Flourished by Advent of Gene Therapy Applications

Recombinant DNA technology involves the insertion of a foreign DNA into a host organism allowing it to produce new substances. It is used in gene therapy, diagnostics, and production of therapeutic proteins. In gene therapy, DNA is inserted into patients’ cells to replace defective genes responsible for genetic disorders like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and hemophilia. Recombinant vaccines against Hepatitis B have been approved for use in humans using this technique. Other applications include insulin production for diabetes treatment using E. coli bacteria genetically modified to express human insulin gene. Monoclonal antibodies for conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis are also produced through recombinant techniques.

The global Recombinant DNA Technology Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 156.89 Mn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030,as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Dynamics:

The advent of gene therapy applications is expected to drive the growth of the recombinant DNA technology market over the forecast period. Gene therapy holds promise to treat many incurable genetic disorders by correcting defective genes or by inserting new genes. More than 2000 gene therapy clinical trials have been conducted worldwide for diseases such as cancer, diabetes, hemophilia, and neurological conditions. Growing pipeline of gene therapy products will boost the demand for DNA recombination techniques.

Moreover, the increasing approval and commercialization of gene therapy products will boost the recombinant DNA technology market growth. In 2017, the first gene therapy product Luxturna was approved in the US and Europe for treatment of retinal disease. Other gene therapies such as Zolgensma and Kymriah have also received regulatory approval, demonstrating the clinical benefits of this new class of treatment. Launch of commercial gene therapies will augment the market by increasing the consumption of recombinant DNA techniques for their manufacturing.

Segment Analysis

The global Recombinant DNA Technology Market is dominated by the Protein/Antibodies sub segment.
