Market Overview

Recombinant DNA technology (RDT) is essential for improving health conditions, primarily by developing new vaccines and pharmaceuticals. Moreover, the treatment strategies are improved by developing diagnostics kits, monitoring devices, and new therapeutic approaches. Additionally, many other industries are benefiting from the research conducted on genetically modified organisms (GMO), such as microorganisms that are considered as clean fuel producers and bio degraders. Genetically modified vaccines are developed for curing various diseases in humans and plants. The recombinant DNA technology created several potential innovation opportunities for developing a wide range of therapeutic products, with immediate effect in medical genetics and biomedicine, by modifying microorganisms, animals, and plants, in order to yield medically useful substances. Therefore, the increasing demand and application of RDT in various sectors are driving the growth of the market studied.

Scope of the Report

Recombinant DNA technology is a process in which creation and manipulation of the DNA sequences are in a specific order. This is resulting in the production of genetically modified organisms and products. The recombinant DNA is primarily used in conventional and non-conventional applications, such as medicinal, agricultural, and industrial. In medicine, recombinant DNA has been used for mass production of insulin, follistim, human growth hormones, monoclonal antibodies, human albumin, vaccines, and other drugs.

Key Market Trends

The Food and Agriculture segment is Expected to Register the Highest CAGR over the Forecast period

In agriculture, the development of genetically modified crops, in order to improve both yield and resistance to pests or herbicides, is gaining a high degree of public acceptance. The genetically modified tomato, CGN-89564-2, was the first commercially grown, genetically engineered crop product to be granted a license for human consumption. Additionally, DNA molecular marker technology is important for preservation, identification, evaluation, mining, and innovation of plant germplasm resources. The introduction of a genetically modified fruit paved the way for the use of GMOs in food. Currently, genetic modification is witnessing a widespread adoption. Thus, increasing the application of RDT in agriculture and food is expected to drive the growth of the market studied.
