DNA Synthesizer Market

Automation driving growth in the global DNA Synthesizer Market

The global DNA Synthesizer Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 4.30 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 20.% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

The global DNA Synthesizer Market is primarily driven by growing automation and adoption of high throughput DNA sequencing technologies in genomics research and healthcare applications. DNA synthesizers are instruments used by researchers for rapid, cost efficient and high quality production of DNA for various applications such as assembly of genes and genomes, gene expression studies, targeted genome engineering and cell-free protein synthesis. DNA synthesizers enable automation of labor-intensive and time-consuming manual DNA synthesis process.

Market Overview:
DNA synthesizers are used for producing both oligonucleotides having short sequences (20-100 base pairs) as well as larger gene fragments and plasmids. Based on techniques, the market is segmented into phosphoramidite and Hosphate chemical synthesis. Phosphoramidite chemistry accounts for major share as it allows high throughput and large-scale production of DNA. Key end users of DNA synthesizers include academic research institutes, pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies, diagnostic labs and contract research organizations. Increasing R&D investments and adoption of next generation DNA sequencing in precision medicine and drug discovery is expected to propel the demand for DNA synthesizers over the forecast period.

Market key trends:
The global DNA synthesizer market is witnessing several technological advancements focused on improving throughput, lengthening synthesizable DNA fragments, reducing cost per base synthesized and enabling benchtop gene synthesis. Major trends in the market include development of solid-phase oligonucleotide synthesizers with higher productivity, integration of CRISPR gene editing technologies with DNA synthesis for rapid genomic engineering applications and launch of hybrid DNA synthesizers combining microchip array synthesis with classical phosphoramidite chemistry. Adoption of continuous flow manufacturing platforms for DNA synthesis is also emerging to address the limitations of batch production. Such innovations are expected to make gene synthesis faster and more affordable, driving wider applications of DNA synthesizers across sectors.
