Antisense oligonucleotides are short, single stranded RNA or DNA molecules. Antisense oligonucleotides do not modulate the activity of already formed proteins, however they act before proteins are produced at the level of messenger RNA in the cell. Antisense oligonucleotides is used in treatment of oncology, Central nervous system therapeutics, inflammation therapeutics, diabetes, asthma, hair loss, etc. Antisense oligonucleotides is also used in genomics. Some examples of antisense nucleotides are fomivirsen to treat cytomegalovirus retinitis, mipomersen to treat high cholesterol, etc.

Antisense Oligonucleotides Market Drivers:-

One of the major factors driving growth of the global antisense oligonucleotides market is increasing number of launches pertaining to novel Antisense Oligonucleotides products by key players in the market. For instance, in 2015, Exiqon A/S acquired by Qiagen launched new LNA Antisense Oligonucleotide GapmeRs. LNA Antisense Oligonucleotide GapmeRs is used for inactivation of RNA in functional analysis. Antisense LNA is an alternative to existing siRNAs. LNA Antisense Oligonucleotide are designed using advanced bioinformatics algorithm, which is combined with LNA (locked nucleic acid).

Furthermore, mergers and acquisitions by key players, in order to enhance their product offerings is expected to be a major driver for global antisense oligonucleotides market growth. For instance, in February 2018, Takeda Pharmaceuticals Company Ltd.—a pharmaceutical company—merged with Wave Life Sciences Ltd., which is involved in nuclei acid therapeutics. Takeda Pharmaceuticals has merged with Wave Life Sciences Ltd. to develop antisense oligonucleotides for central nervous system disorder, which includes Lou Gehrig’s disease, Frontotemporal dementia (FTD), Spinocerebellar ataxia type 3 (SCA3), and huntington’s disease. Lou Gehrig’s disease is also called as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). This acquisition will also help Takeda in gaining market share.

Robust pipeline is also another factor aiding in growth of the global market. For instance, in 2016 Ionis Pharmaceuticals completed phase 2 clinical trials of its ISIS CRP Rx. ISIS 329993 is an antisense oligonucleotide, which targets CRP (C reactive protein) in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. In 2015, Achieve Life Sciences completed Phase 2 clinical trials of its OGX 427. OGX 427 is used to treat castration resistant prostate cancer.

Antisense Oligonucleotides Market Regional Analysis:-

North America is expected to be the dominant region in the global antisense oligonucleotides market over the forecast period. This is owing to increasing approvals of new antisense oligonucleotide drugs in the region. For instance, in 2018, U.S. FDA approved Nusinersen, which is marketed as Spinraza from Biogen Inc.—a multinational biotechnology company. Nusinersen is the first drug approved for the treatment of Spinal muscular Atrophy (SMA). Moreover, robust pipeline is expected to contribute significantly to North America antisense oligonucleotides market growth. For instance, in 2017, Bio Path Holding’s—an oncology focused biotechnology company— drug BP 1001 (liposomal Grb2 antisense oligonucleotide) was in phase 2 clinical trials. BP 1001 (liposomal Grb2 antisense oligonucleotide) is used to treat chronic myelogenous leukemia.

Key players in Europe are focusing on strategic mergers and acquisitions in order to enhance their product offerings in antisense oligonucleotides. This is further expected to aid in growth of the Europe antisense oligonucleotides market size. For instance, in 2014, Astra Zeneca Plc.,—a multinational pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical company—merged with Ionis Pharmaceuticals, a pharmaceutical company. Astra Zeneca Plc. has strategically merged with Ionis Pharmaceuticals to develop delivery methods for antisense oligonucleotides, which would help in targeting the desired tissue more effectively. The other objective of this merger was to develop Ligand Conjugation Antisense (LICA) Technology. Furthermore, robust pipeline of key players is also expected to aid in growth of the market to a certain extent. For instance, in 2016, Ionis Pharmaceuticals, a pharmaceutical company completed phase 2 clinical trial of its drug IONIS STAT 3Rx. IONIS STAT 3Rx is used in treatment of advanced cancers and lymphoma.
