Aptamers are chemically synthesized peptides or oligonucleotide molecules that bind to a specific target nucleic acid, protein, or lipid. Aptamers are used in various fields, such as drug delivery, diagnostics, and therapeutics. The global aptamers market is expected to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period owing to the growing investment in research and development, technological advancements, and the growing usage of aptamers in drug delivery and diagnostics. The ethical issues associated with the use of aptamers and the stringent regulatory policies for product approval hinder the market growth.

The global aptamers market is segmented based on type, application, and geography. The global aptamers market is divided into two types: nucleic acid aptamers and peptide aptamers. The nucleic acid aptamers segment is further sub-segmented into DNA-based aptamers, RNA-based aptamers, and XNA-based aptamers. In 2017, the market was dominated by the nucleic acid aptamers segment owing to the higher preference, the introduction of novel nucleic acid aptamers-based drugs such as Macugen, and the development of DNA/RNA-based aptamer drugs such as NOX-A12 and REG1. Based on applications, research and development segments dominated the global market in 2017 and are expected to retain their dominance during the forecast period. The prime factor for the dominance of segments is the growing use of aptamers in research and development. For instance, Aptagen, LLC, is working on the development of antibodies that overcome the current restrictions of the traditional pharmaceutical drug discovery process.

In 2017, North America led the global aptamers market owing to rapid technological advancements and rising funding and investment in the development of aptamers. Furthermore, the domicile of the key players, such as Aptagen, Inc., Regado Biosciences, Inc., and Somalogic, Inc., contributed to the North American market lead. Furthermore, Asia Pacific holds immense market opportunities due to increasing research and development activities and economic growth and is expected to grow during the late phase of the forecast period. In Asia Pacific, market growth is centered in major economies such as Japan, China, and India due to supportive government initiatives and a rising focus on research and development.

The global aptamer market is highly fragmented due to novel technology and new entrants. Key players hold a substantial position in the market due to better market penetration and geographical outreach. However, many startups are focusing on the development of aptamers to soon enter the competition. Base Pair Biotechnologies, Inc., a provider of custom aptamer discovery and development services, for example, received US$ 3.2 million in the Series A-3 financing round in 2017. Thus, the entry of new players accounts for technological advancement, thereby contributing to the global aptamers market’s growth.
