DNA Polymerase Market Outline


DNA polymerases are the enzymes that help in the synthesis of DNA molecules from deoxyribonucleotides. DNA polymerases are essential for the DNA replication and work in pairs to synthesize the two identical DNA strands from single original DNA molecule. During the process of DNA polymerization, DNA polymerase reads the existed DNA stands to create the newer stands that match with existing ones. DNA polymerase adds the nucleotides to 3’-end of DNA strand. During the cell division, DNA polymerases help to duplicate the cell’s DNA and copy of original DNA molecule passed to each daughter cell. Through this process, genetic information is passed from generation to generation.


Market Dynamics: DNA Polymerase Market


Increase in R&D activities in life sciences sector, rise in preference for high-quality tools in epigenetic research, development of novel molecular diagnostics tools for the disease diagnosis, an increase in the usage of high-fidelity DNA polymerase are anticipated to fuel the market over the forecast period. Moreover, wide range of applications of DNA polymerase, increase in funding from public and private sectors for R&D, and increased DNA polymerase usage in biopharmaceutical industry are expected to propel the market. However, high cost of DNA polymerase products, and availability of alternative products are expected to hinder the growth of market over the forecast timeframe.


The market is growing at significant rate over the decade owing to increase in DNA polymerase usage in various industries such as forensic science, biopharmaceuticals, research centers, and diagnostic centers among others. DNA polymerase plays major role in various biotechnological techniques such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR), DNA cloning, DNA sequencing, single nucleotide polymorphism, whole genome amplification, and molecular diagnostics. Moreover, collaborations, launching of newer DNA polymerase enzymes, and patent approval are the key strategies followed by market players. For instance, in April 2013, Sygnis granted US patent for Qualiphi, a DNA polymerase has potential to improve the complete DNA amplification with minimal concentrations. Similarly, in September 2016, ArcticZymes a subsidiary of Biotec Pharmacon ASA launched isothermal DNA polymerase IsoPolTM and also the company received patent protection for its heat-labile Salt Active Nucleases (SAN) in U.S.
