CRISPR Gene Editing Market
CRISPR Gene Editing Market

The global CRISPR Gene Editing Market is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 5% during the forecast period. CRISPR gene editing is a scientific method that enables geneticists and medical researchers to modify, add, or delete specific DNA sequences to alter portions of the genome. It is currently the most straightforward, adaptable, and precise method of genetic modification. CRISPR has a lot of potential as a tool for treating genetic diseases like cancer, high cholesterol, and hepatitis B. For instance, according to the World Health Organization, around 296 million people were living with chronic hepatitis B infection in 2019, with 1.5 million new infections occurring every year.

The CRISPR gene editing market is a rapidly growing and highly competitive market, driven by the increasing demand for new and effective treatments for various diseases and conditions, as well as the growing interest in precision medicine and personalized treatments. With advancements in technology and the increasing number of companies entering the market, the market is expected to continue growing in the coming years. For instance, in 2020, zon Discovery Group launched the Edit-R CRISPRa Portfolio. The Edit-R CRISPRa Portfolio is a collection of plasmids that use CRISPR activation (CRISPRa) technology to turn on the expression of specific genes in mammalian cells. The Edit-R CRISPRa Portfolio provides researchers with a powerful tool for studying gene function and developing new therapies for genetic diseases.

CRISPR Therapeutics; Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc.; Synthego; System Biosciences, LLC; ToolGen, Inc.; Agilent Technologies, Inc.; Merck KGaA; Applied StemCell; GeneCopoeia, Inc.; Cellecta, Inc. are some of the key players in the market.
