RNA based therapeutics has garnered significant attention in the recent years due to its potential to treat variety of chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, AIDS, Tuberculosis and certain cardiovascular conditions. Despite being in the clinical research phase, the RNA based therapeutics is been explored as a promising treatment option for the diseases which are difficult to treat. Development of this therapeutics is based on promising technologies such as RNA interference technology (RNAi), antisense technology and SMaRT technology. RNAi technology and antisense technology together are gaining prominence in the research industry, as these technologies provide base sequence to develop RNA drugs. RNAi technology works by causing destruction of specific mRNA molecules; whereas, antisense technology works by synthesizing strand of RNA from known gene sequence. These newly synthesized RNA strands then itself binds to mRNA and make mRNA inactive. Gene silencing potential of RNA based therapeutics is the primary driver for the growth of this market. The other drivers include target specificity and selectivity of RNAi therapeutics, more intense product focus versus platform technologies and virtual drug development models that enable companies to reduce the research cost. However, critical issues in drug delivery, high cost of research, and high failure rates are some of the major hurdles for the companies working in this field. Despite the restraints, RNA based therapeutics has the potential to grow due to increasing interest exhibited by the pharmaceutical industries for the commercialization of these therapies. Quark Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (USA), Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (USA), Dicerna Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (USA), Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corp. (Canada), Benitec Biopharma Limited (Australia), Genzyme Corporation (USA), ISIS pharmaceuticals Inc (USA), Silence Therapeutics PLC (UK) and Cenix BioScience GmbH (Germany) are some of the key players in this market. ISIS pharmaceuticals, Inc. (USA) has focused its research activities on antisense technology and developed antisense therapeutics, namely Mipomersen and Fomivirsen. This therapeutics is commercially available in the market and marketed as Kynamro and Vitravene respectively. Quark, Alnylam and silence therapeutics are other major players of this market with strong research pipeline in RNA based therapeutics.

RNA based therapeutics market is segmented into technology, application, end-users and geography. Technology segment is further categorized as enabling technologies and enabled technologies. The segment of enabling technologies comprises of Microarrays, Labeling, Purification, Linear amplification, qRT-PCR and Inhibition; whereas, enabled technologies includes RNA interference technology (RNAi) and RNA antisense technology. Enabled technologies account for largest market share due to their potential use in therapeutics. The market for RNA based therapeutics is dominated by RNA interference technology as numerous companies have exhibited their interest to develop the RNA drugs using RNAi technology. RNA based therapeutics have wide applications covering variety of chronic conditions such as Cardiovascular, Kidney Diseases, Oncology, Infectious diseases, Metabolic disorders and Others. The pipeline research is concentrated towards oncology and infectious diseases due to their high prevalence and failure of existing treatment to effectively treat these conditions. The end user market is segmented into research, therapeutics and diagnostics. Currently, research and diagnostics segments are largely exploring the RNA technologies and therapies for the commercialization of RNA drugs.

Geographically, RNA based therapeutics market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and LAMEA. Potential regions of the respective geographies are strategically analyzed to provide country wise focus on RNA research activities. North America dominates the RNA based therapeutics followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. The key market players belong to North America and are conducting extensive research to commercialize the therapeutics. Moreover, the growth in North America and Europe is primarily driven by substantial investment on research, advancement in RNA platform technologies, government support and availability of suitable infrastructure to develop the novel RNA based therapies. However, business dynamics in Asia-pacific is anticipated to offer tremendous opportunities to major players of this market as cost of clinical research is less in this region as compared to North America and Europe.

A new report titled "RNA Therapeutics Market (technology, applications, end user and geography) - Industry Analysis and Forecast, 2013 - 2020", suggests that the RNA Based Therapeutics Market would reach $1.2 billion by 2020 registering a CAGR of 28.4% during 2014 - 2020. Due to its ability to render targeted solutions for chronic diseases such as cancer, AIDS, rare genetic disorders, and certain cardiovascular conditions, RNA based therapeutics is expected to significantly impact the global pharmaceutical industry.

The large scale funding from public and private sector, growing interest of pharmaceuticals and biotech giants for developing novel delivery technology, and anticipated saving in healthcare expenditure are propelling the growth of RNA therapeutics market. Moreover, the platform technologies such as RNAi and antisense have enabled researchers to accelerate their research activities by defining gene sequences for chronic diseases. Companies have widened the research focus on RNA based drug as well, which has fueled the growth of the overall RNA therapeutics market.Pharmaceutical companies have identified the RNA therapeutics for variety of chronic diseases and are also exploring the potential of RNA technology for diagnostic purposes. The RNA based therapeutics market, in the near future is likely to witness a substantial level of momentum due to government funding and programs aimed at commercialization of these drugs. The government of United States, through its National Institute of Health (NIH), provides funds for RNA therapeutics research, thus assist in propelling the growth of this market. To boost the research activities the U.S. FDA is providing fast track designation to the RNA products, which are in the pipeline.

The study suggests that the enabled technologies such as RNA interference technology (RNAi) and RNA antisense technology will dominate the market with RNAi technology getting interest from most of the participants. The development pipeline suggests that oncology segment will emerge as the largest application segment. This is largely due to the high prevalence of such diseases and limited efficiency of available therapeutics in treating such diseases. Research and therapeutics are the two major end-use segments for RNA therapeutics market. North America currently commands the lion's share of the market as most of the research and development activity is concentrated in this region. However, Asia Pacific and other emerging regions will gradually catch-up over the forecast period.

The Key companies in this space are Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Benitec Biopharma Limited, Cenix BioScience GmbH, Dicerna Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Genzyme Corporation, ISIS pharmaceuticals Inc., Quark Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Silence Therapeutics PLC, and Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corp. These organizations have raised funds from private and public sectors to bear the high cost of RNA therapeutics research. Though the clinical results behind RNA based therapeutics are compelling, the Pharma and biotech companies are still working to identify opportunistic areas to grow. It is most likely that the RNA therapeutic companies would successfully tackle the drug delivery issue, which is the major hurdle in commercialization of this therapeutics and at the same time would reap benefits.
