However, the report also warns that the growth in the global aptamers market will be restrained to some extent ethical issues associated with aptamers derived from animals. This drawback will be further compounded by strict regulatory mandates designed around aptamers. However, these drawbacks can be overcome by companies in the global aptamers market by modifying aptamers chemistry. For instance, animal-derived aptamers can be replaced by aptamers obtained via the in-vitro process.
For the purpose of this study, the global aptamers market is segmented on the basis of types, applications, and geography. The types of aptamers studied in the report include peptide and nucleic acid aptamers. The segment of nucleic acid aptamers was not only the largest as of 2012, but is also expected to be the fastest growing over the report’s forecast period. This is chiefly owing to the widespread use of nucleic acid aptamers in the R&D sector.
Likewise, the applications analyzed in the report are: Diagnostics, therapeutics development, research and development, and others. Of these, the diagnostics segment will report consistent growth over the next four years as the demand for aptamers for biomedical diagnostics, biomarker development, and molecular imaging remains steady. However, in terms of pace of growth, therapeutics development applications will outpace all other application segments over the report’s forecast period.
From the geographical standpoint, the aptamers market for the following regions is studied: North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Rest of the World. Thanks to several key players in the aptamers market being based in the United States, the North America region was identified as the largest market for aptamers in 2012. This factor also creates an environment that fosters R&D related to aptamers.
The Europe aptamers market was the second largest from the global standpoint. According to the findings of the report, Europe constituted about 35% of the global aptamers market in 2012. Small scale industries play a key role in keeping the Europe aptamers market firmly on the growth track. The Asia Pacific market is currently brimming with opportunities in diagnostics and pharmaceuticals, enabling the region to post the highest CAGR between 2013 and 2019.
