Global Gene Editing Market Outline


Gene editing or Genome editing is the type of genetic editing where DNA is inserted, replaced or deleted in the genome of an organism in order to treat a specific disease by using a molecular scissors or engineered nuclease. These nucleases create site-specific double-stranded breaks in desired locations in genome. The induced double-stranded breaks are repaired through nonhomologous end joining or homologous recombination resulting in targeted mutations (edits).


Rise in the prevalence rate of cancer & other genetic disorders, increasing preference in the  personalized medicine, companies investments towards R&D, and growth of biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, increase in private and public sector funding, rapid advancements in sequencing and gene editing technologies, applications in various drug discovery processes are some of the factors propelling the growth of the gene editing market. However, global gene editing market is hindered by stringent government regulations to approve gene mutation projects, ethical issues, unavailability of gene editing based therapeutics in the market and lack of awareness among people regarding the safety of genetic interventions.
