Synthetic biology is at a nascent stage and has recently entered the commercial
market. Many technologies that utilize synthetic biology are yet to be commercialized, and
are waiting for approvals from the respective regional regulatory bodies. However, this
market is expected to witness adoption in varied domains, with chemicals, pharmaceuticals,
energy and agriculture, as some major application markets. Key factors fueling the growth
of this market include assistance from government and private organizations, rising number
of entities conducting research and declining cost of DNA sequencing and synthesizing.
Bio-safety & bio-security and ethical issues are key restraining factors of the market.
The fact that synthetic biology can be misused has raised concerns all around the world.
However, as far as the market dynamics are considered, the bottom line is that the overall
impact of these factors would be highly positive.

Global synthetic biology market is segmented based on product, technology,
application, and geography. Synthetic biology product market is further segmented into
enabling products, enabled products and core products. Enabling product is the fastest
growing segment in the product market due to ongoing researches that may bring-innovative
ideas for application of synthetic biology in new fields. Thus, the need for enabling
products, during R&D activities and in the development of enabled products, would rise.

DNA synthesis is the largest segment within enabling products segment, whereas
oligonucleotide synthesis is expected to be fastest growing market at 57.8% CAGR during
2014 and 2020. Chassis organism would be the fastest growing core product during the
forecast period with synthetic DNA occupying largest market share. Other core products
included in the study are synthetic genes, synthetic sells, and XNA. Biofuels, within
enabled product segment, is expected to exhibit tremendous growth; registering a CAGR of
110.1% during forecast period. However, synthetic biology-based pharmaceuticals and
diagnostics products will generate largest amount of revenue within enabled product
segment followed by agriculture and chemicals sub-segments.
