Rising Prevalence of Genetic Disorders Drives Enzymatic DNA Synthesis Market Growth

Down syndrome, autism spectrum disorder, cancer, diabetes, cystic fibrosis, and sickle cell anemia are a few of the commonly known genetic disorders. Per the Global Genes, more than 10,000 different genetic and rare diseases have been identified, and ~400 million people suffer from rare diseases. Some genetic disorders cause symptoms at birth, while others develop over time. The global burden of genetic diseases appears to be increasing. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a US-based medical organization, as of November 2021, genetic disorders were identified in 9.4% of pediatric patients, with 44.7% being critically ill newborns. In addition, 13.17 million patients in the US suffer from unique genetic disorders. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 2022 report, sickle cell disease affects ~100,000 Americans, and it occurs in 1 in 356 African American births. Cystic fibrosis, another common genetic disease worldwide, affects ~30,000 people in the US, and ~1,000 new cases are treated annually. Enzymatic DNA synthesis is a well-established DNA synthesis technique useful in synthetic biology, genetic engineering, and therapeutic antibody studies. In conjunction with enzymatic assays, DNA synthesis shows greater diagnostic possibilities. This method provides important information about people at risk and helps them make important decisions regarding disease diagnosis and medication. Hence, with the rising prevalence of genetic disorders across the world, people are becoming more aware of the need for the early detection of these genetic flaws, which propels the growth of the enzymatic DNA synthesis market

High Costs and Complex Procedures Hamper growth of Enzymatic DNA Synthesis Market

Enzymatic DNA synthesis techniques are not mature enough, and further optimization is required before they are rolled out for widespread use. Most are based on the naturally occurring enzyme terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT), which is used in biological systems to add new bases to a DNA sequence. TdT-based method is an improved one over the chemical procedure as it avoids the production of hazardous waste. However, the high costs and low accuracy of this enzyme hinder its use in in vitro DNA synthesis. The TdT enzyme is too permissive, adding wrong bases more often than it should. As a result, TdT-based oligos have more sequence errors and may require the same or even more post-synthesis quality control steps, increasing the time and cost of the synthesis process. While working with this enzyme, scientists need to add more reagents to build their target sequence, which further adds to the cost of the entire synthesis process. The cost per base of synthetic DNA obtained using TdT is much high than conventionally synthesized genetic materials. Thus, high costs and complex procedures limit the growth of the enzymatic DNA synthesis market.

What is enzymatic DNA synthesis?

Enzymatic DNA synthesis (EDS) offers significant advantages in terms of accessibility and convenience, changing the pace and control of iteration and innovation with less environmental impact. The enzymes involved in DNA replication act coordinated to synthesize both leading and lagging strands of DNA simultaneously at the replication fork. Purported benefits of enzymatic synthesis include the ability to avoid the use of harsh chemical substances (which often result in toxic waste) and an ever-increasing ability to produce longer and longer strands of DNA, which in turn not only leads to a "more green" form of DNA synthesis, but also some incredibly powerful new uses for the longer DNA chains (e.g., vaccines, therapeutics, and data storage).
