Therapeutic Segment Expected to Register a High CAGR
The therapeutics segment is expected to witness significant growth in the oligonucleotide synthesis market over the forecast period owing to factors such as the increasing prevalence of chronic and rare diseases, along with the growing adoption of oligonucleotides in drug development and rising product launches.
Oligonucleotide therapeutics are classified as therapeutics that use antisense oligonucleotides or small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) to target RNA or protein. Oligonucleotide therapies include decoys that prevent transcription by concentrating on transcription factors, regulate the expression of complementary microRNA (miRNA) to specific mRNAs, and limit the translation of certain proteins from mRNA. For instance, as per an article published in Future Medicine in February 2022, oligonucleotide therapeutics is one of the most adaptable platforms for creating medications for rare diseases.
The growing company's focus on adopting various business strategies, such as collaborations, financing, and others, is also contributing to the market growth. For instance, in January 2022, Ceptur Therapeutics, Inc. successfully acquired USD 75 million in a Series-A financing round led by venBio Partners and Qiming Venture Partners USA to advance RNA therapeutics based on proprietary U1 adaptor technology, a bivalent oligonucleotide that engages sequence-specific mRNA and U1 small nuclear ribonuclear protein. The U1 small nuclear ribonuclear protein is a ubiquitous intracellular machine that regulates transcription and splicing. Utilizing synthetic oligonucleotides that interact with U1 snRNP offers the ability to co-opt the key transcriptome regulator to regulate mRNA in a highly targeted manner.
Furthermore, increasing product launches and approvals are expected to increase the demand for oligonucleotide drugs, propelling the market growth. For instance, in February 2021, the USFDA approved an Amondys 45 (casimersen) injection to treat Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) in patients with a confirmed mutation of the DMD gene.
