Published Date : Mar 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global Gene Expression market size is expected to be worth around US$ 29.4 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Gene Expression market size was valued at US$ 9.07 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 9.96% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

Rise in investments for the development of alternative drug discovery approaches coupled with an increase in research activities for genetic studies is expected to drive the global market.

A rise in awareness about the potential application of genetic studies has led to an increase in investments for the development and launch of novel products. For instance, in August 2020, Lexogen GmbH launched the QuantSeq-Pool Sample-Barcoded 3’ mRNA-Seq Library Prep Kit to expedite multiplexing capacities during gene expression profiling. The company’s new QuantSeq-Pool kit also facilitates the sequencing of up to 36,864 RNA samples in parallel, thereby reducing cost and time. 

Furthermore, the decrease in cost associated with sequencing posed as a major driver in the last few years. According to the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), the cost of sequencing per genome reduced from USD 46.77 thousand in 2010 to USD 0.689 thousand in 2020. This dramatic 98.5% decline in sequencing costs within a decade has increased research involving genomic expression profiling studies.

Report Highlights

The cDNA synthesis & conversion process segment led the market with a revenue share of 27.06% in 2020 owing to the availability of a wide range of kits for cDNA synthesis to match the research needs pertaining to optimal reaction temperature, the number of reactions, and sample size. In addition, a rise in product launches of cDNA synthesis and library preparation kits is anticipated to propel the segment growth.

For instance, in February 2021, SeqWell launched the plexWell Single Cell Rapid Kit for the preparation of libraries for single-cell RNA sequencing. The product has brought significant enhancements to the Smart-seq2 method, which involves amplification and synthesis of cDNA. It also helps in the reduction of normalization and quality control burden by 75%.

The data analysis & interpretation segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Companies compete to provide the best data analytics and interpretation results for gene exp. arrays. For instance, in June 2020, Illumina acquired BlueBee, a cloud-based software company, to enhance Illumina’s capabilities for interpretation and analysis of data delivered by its sequencing systems.

High investments in cancer-related research and the need for better interpretation software for cancer gene exp. would accelerate the segment growth. Various approaches and algorithms are developed focusing on gene exp. studies for such complex diseases. For instance, projective clustering techniques and ensemble techniques are reported to be used for the integration of cancer gene exp. data.

The kits & reagents product segment dominated the global gene expression market in 2020 with a revenue share of over 74%. The large share of the segment is attributed to the presence of a high number of companies offering different types of kits & reagents for gene exp. For instance, Agilent Technologies, Inc. offers an extensive range of gene exp. microarray kits & reagents. Furthermore, the introduction of advanced products designed for specific applications drives the segment growth.

In May 2020, CARTANA, a biotechnology company based in Sweden, launched a range of in situ sequencing kits to perform high-throughput mapping in single cells. This product is 5 to 10 times more sensitive than the company’s cDNA-based kits. Therefore, the launch of such products increases the utilization of kits & reagents.

The DNA chip/microarray segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR from 2021 to 2028 owing to the rise in utilization of DNA microarrays for analysis of gene exp. Microarrays facilitate high-throughput gene exp. analysis of large genome sets. Moreover, technological advancements in this area have increased the application of microarrays in diagnostics, drug discovery, biomedicine, and other biotechnology fields.

The High-Plex capacity segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 64.2% in 2020 and is projected to retain the dominant position by growing at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. A rise in the adoption of gene exp. analysis for multiple genomic studies is a key factor driving the segment growth. Moreover, the presence of market participants, such as ThermoFisher Scientific, that offer high-throughput and fast solutions for multiplexed gene exp. quantitation boosts the segment development.

For instance, Illumina, Inc. offers TruSeq Targeted RNA Exp. Library Prep Kits for customized mid- to high-plex profiling. Furthermore, high-plex analysis reduces hands-on time when compared to qPCR and other conventional technologies. The technique is also highly accurate and simple as it eliminates the requirement of upfront probe validation. The development of spatially resolved, multiplexed digital characterization systems further enhances the segment growth.

The RNA exp. technique segment dominated the market with a revenue share of over 41% in 2020. Acceleration of high-throughput technologies, such as cDNA microarray and RNA sequencing (RNA-seq), often replaces preceding techniques. Hence, technological advances in RNA exp. tools and techniques coupled with the availability of a range of products to meet different research needs are anticipated to increase the adoption of these techniques for gene exp. analysis.

DNA microarrays and PCR techniques are the major contributors to the large share of this segment as these techniques have a significant adoption rate and have helped researchers and biologists to study expressions of various genes and microorganisms. Microarrays are used to obtain wide coverage of genome expression. Thus, increased genomic research that studies the effects of mutation in biological systems or investigates changes in exp. profiling of the whole genome is anticipated to increase the adoption of DNA microarrays.

RT-PCR has brought revolutionary changes to gene exp. studies with its high efficiency and speed. Moreover, advanced versions of PCR, such as digital PCR and qPCR, have applications in differential or comparative exp. analysis. These improvements in the PCR technology have increased the adoption of PCR for RNA exp. analysis.

The drug discovery & development segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 41% in 2020. A rise in the analysis of gene exp. profiles of SARS-CoV-2 receptors for in silico drug discovery for COVID-19 is a high-impact rendering driver for the segment. An August 2020 research study used gene exp. profiles to explore major functions of Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2)-correlated genes.

Gene exp. profiles were obtained from Genotype-Tissue Exp., Gene Exp. Omnibus, The Cancer Genome Atlas, and other public datasets. As ACE2 is the main cell receptor for SARS-CoV-2 and SARS-CoV, such type of co-expression analysis helped with the evaluation of drugs for Covid-19 treatment.

A rise in demand for early and accurate diagnostic tests for complex disorders is expected to drive the clinical diagnostics application segment with the fastest CAGR from 2021 to 2028. The use of RNA exp. in clinical diagnostics to provide an early and accurate diagnosis of the Early-Onset Infection (EOI) and other rare genetic conditions in preterm infants drives segment growth.

North America held the largest revenue share of more than 45% in 2020. This can be attributed to the presence of a significant number of key players, such as Thermo Fisher Scientific, in the region.

Key players are continuously involved in extensive R&D to develop new technology & methods that involve gene exp. analysis. For instance, Decibel Therapeutics, Inc., a U.S.-based biotechnology company, collaborated with Regeneron Pharmaceuticals to develop DB-OTO. DB-OTO is a preclinical stage gene therapy candidate that is being developed by using an exclusive, cell-selective promoter to regulate gene exp. in hair cells of the cochlea. The product is expected to enter the clinical phase by 2022.

Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing regional market from 2021 to 2028 owing to the rising interest of dominant players in emerging markets, such as China and India. Sequencing and array technologies are widely adopted in this region owing to increased genomic and gene-related studies. Japan maintains its data repositories, such as DNA Data Bank of Japan (DDBJ) and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes. These provide tools, such as GenomeNet Bioinformatics Tools, for sequencing, genome, and chemical analysis.
