Aptamers are used for research and clinical purposes as they bind to proteins of interest, similar to antibodies. Aptamers can bind to any molecule that they are targeted to, such as cancer cells and bacteria, and inactivate them.
Aptamers are easy to produce and do not cause undesirable immunological reactions. They are used as biosensors, therapeutic tools and to regulate the cellular processes. These factors make the aptamers market one of the fastest growing in the pharmaceuticals sector. There are a number of investments being made in their research and development. A number of innovations, such as nanoparticle therapeutics to enhance the activity of aptamers are also witnessing a growing number of applications.
Global Aptamers Market-Market Dynamics
North America, particularly the United States, holds the largest market for aptamers, followed by the European countries. The aptamers market is growing at the fastest rate in the Asia-Pacific because of the large investments and favorable government policies promoting the development of pharmaceutical industries. The increasing number of diseases requiring novel therapeutics (such as AIDS and Alzheimerâ€™s) is driving the aptamers market. Aptamers also offer a number of advantages over antibodies because of their high specificity, higher binding affinity and the ability to not damage the neighboring cells. Some of the factors restraining the use of aptamers are their susceptibility to being digested by enzymes and the slow approval rate by organizations.
The global aptamers market is segmented based on the type (DNA-based, RNA-based, XNA-based and peptide-based), by applications (diagnostic reagents, biosensors, forensics, biodefense, cancer, therapeutics and drug delivery) and by geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa and South America).
