Transcriptomics refers to the study of structures and functions of transcript molecules. The central dogma process provides information about the flow of genetic material present in a biological system. Analysis of transcriptomes is much more complex than the genome, as a single gene may produce different types of mRNA molecules.
The global transcriptomics technologies market is estimated to account for US$ 15,569.1 Mn in terms of value by the end of 2027.
Global Transcriptomics Technologies Market: Drivers
Increasing R&D investments is expected to propel growth of the global transcriptomics technologies market over the forecast period. For instance, according to The European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations’ Key Data 2019, the pharmaceutical sector in Europe invested US$ 19, 509 million in 2000, which increased to US$ 39,895 million (est.) in 2018.
Global Transcriptomics Technologies Market: Opportunities
Increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the global transcriptomics technologies market. For instance, according to American Heart Association 2019 Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics, cardiovascular disease was responsible for 840,768 deaths (635,260 cardiac) in 2016 in the U.S.
Global Transcriptomics Technologies Market: Restraints
RNA degradation is expected to hinder growth of the market. RNA degradation can severely damage the potential of sequenced data to accurately represent in vivo gene expression as the effects of degradation may not be uniform.
