Aptamers is an emerging market, widely considered as a rival or substitute to antibodies in the scientific industry. It is poised to grow rapidly in various application areas, including therapeutics and diagnostics. The global aptamers market is valued at $287 million in 2013 and is expected to reach $2.1 billion by 2018.

Aptamers existed in parallel with antibodies for two decades, but its market potential was not utilized, even to a fraction of antibodies. However, the achievement of Macugen has given a boost to the aptamer field. The list of promising aptamers in the clinical trials pipeline estimates that these synthetic chemical antibodies will soon surpass monoclonal antibodies in therapeutics, diagnosis, and imaging. With technological merits over antibodies, the aptamers market is poised to grow at par with antibodies in the next 10-15 years.

Though there are just < 60 companies (biotech and pharmaceutical) working on aptamers, there are quite a number of research groups working on diverse applications of aptamers, particularly in studying key target molecules involved in cardiovascular diseases, infectious diseases, and against viral antigens. Hundreds of research articles have been published and a lot of patents granted and filed for this technology.

The aptamers market is analyzed both in terms of qualitative, i.e. technological and quantitative, i.e. revenue, perspectives. The technological analysis includes discussion on inherent characteristics and capabilities of aptamers over antibodies and the various applications where aptamers can find its place. The market revenue analysis includes market segmentation and the expected market position by 2018, with the projected growth rate.

The aptamers market is classified by geography, application segments and aptamer type. The application segments are further divided as therapeutics, diagnostics, biosensors, drug discovery, biomarker discovery, and research applications. The advantages of chemically modified aptamers and low production cost compared to antibodies aid the growth of the market. However, the reduced market acceptance compared to the antibodies and increased time consumption for screening using SELEX will hamper the growth of this market, to a certain extent. While aptamer technology has existed for over two decades, the challenges imposed on the development of aptamers for small molecules has resulted in very few novel aptamers that can bind to practical small molecular targets. Nevertheless, there are many opportunities for the innovative application of small molecule binding aptamers in biosensing, drug discovery, diagnostics and therapeutics.

Besides a discussion on the properties of aptamers in the technological analysis, the basics on nucleic acid aptamers, peptide aptamers and the SELEX method for their synthesis are also discussed. Research applications are specifically discussed regarding aptamers use in flow cytometry, reagents and assays, mass spectrometry and western blotting. In addition, a number of therapeutic targets that are validated by basic research have been displayed under the therapeutics application segment. The complete value chain of the aptamers market is schematically represented and the significance of each stakeholder has been briefed.

Apart from the technological and market analysis, the investor climate has been assessed by tracking the complete investor network and collecting data on funds/grants and investments made towards the aptamers. Insights on current and future technological investment trends have also been discussed.

The adoption and developmental potential of the aptamers technology market has been discussed on a geographic basis, i.e. North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the world, by taking select countries that are poised to have a greater market value during the forecast period.

In brief, this research report provides:

The global aptamers market is anticipated to reach $2.1 billion by 2018 growing at a CAGR of 49.24%. The aptamers market is divided by geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World), application segments (therapeutics, diagnostics, biosensors, drug discovery, biomarker discovery, and research applications) and aptamer type (Nucleic acid aptamers and Peptide aptamers). Further each application segment and the aptamer type is broken down by geography, with exhaustive revenue analysis for the entire forecast period. Of the above mentioned application segments, research applications is the largest revenue segment; however, biomarker discovery and diagnostics will be the fastest-growing segment.

The potential growth of the market is attributed to future diagnostics, drug discovery and research applications. The future approval of a few diagnostic tests specifically for infectious diseases and a couple of drugs in the market will greatly propel the market. The global market for aptamers is expected to grow, backed by technological advancements with respect to selection processes and synthesis. The market will experience continuous improvements in aptamer synthesis and its applicability in drug discovery and routine research.The market is witnessing a trend toward development of personalized medicine and point-of-care diagnostic tests. Additionally, the demand for safe and cost-effective drugs for treatment of cancer (which can be fulfilled by aptamer therapeutics), will remarkably fuel market growth.

North America is a significant contributor to the market, followed by Europe, due to the presence of technology providers and better R&D facilities. The new markets that are expected to grow at a brisk pace are emerging economics such as China, India, Japan and other regions of Asia-Pacific and untapped markets of Europe due to their growing GDP, healthcare costs, and rising demand for safe and cost-effective diagnostics and therapeutics.

Key players in this market are AM Biotechnologies, LLC (U.S.), Aptagen, LLC (U.S.), Aptamer Sciences Inc. (South Korea), Aptamer Solutions Ltd (U.K.), Base Pair Biotechnologies (U.S.), Bioapter S.L. (Spain), Integrated Biotechnologies, Inc. (U.S.), NOXXON Pharma AG (Germany), OTC Biotech (U.S.), Regado Biosciences, Inc. (U.S.), Somalogic, Inc. (U.S.), and TriLink BioTechnologies, Inc. (U.S.).
