The global microRNA market size is expected to showcase exponential growth by reaching USD 613.2 million by 2027 while exhibiting a CAGR of 13.4% between 2020 and 2027. This growth is attributable to the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as Cancer and the growing focus on adoption of advanced technology in microRNA research across the globe. This information is published by Fortune Business Insights
“MicroRNA Market Size, Share & Covid-19 Impact Analysis, By Product (Instruments and Kits & Reagents) By Application (Isolation & Purification, Detection & Quantification, Disease Diagnostics, and Others) and By End User (Pharma & Biotech Companies, Academic & Research Institutes, Healthcare Facilities, and Others), 2020-2027.” The report further mentions that the market stood at USD 215.4 million in 2019.
Healthcare Companies Focus on Novel Product Launches & Research Activities to Bolster Market Growth amid COVID-19
According to the PLOS Medicine report, higher incidence of acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients contracting COVID-19 is associated with a 3-fold higher odds of death than non-COVID-19 patients. These data indicate that patients suffering from novel coronavirus are likely to be monitored for AKI. Moreover, research proves that the cc-miRNAs can be used as therapeutic agents to treat infections in patients suffering from COVID-19, SARS-CoV, and MERS-CoV. Therefore, the growing focus on R&D activities and the introduction of novel products is likely to bode well for the market growth. Based on our analysis, the market is projected to exhibit a stellar growth of 18.30% in 2020.
Increasing Prevalence of Chronic Diseases Worldwide to Feed Market Growth
According to the American Cancer Society, in 2020, it is estimated that around 1.8 million people were diagnosed with cancer and over 606,520 cancer deaths were reported in the United States. The increasing prevalence of chronic disease is likely to propel the demand for microRNA-based treatment solutions across the globe. The miRNAs perform a pivotal role in tumorigenesis due to them being vital modulators in cellular pathways as they regulate target gene expression through mRNA degradation. Additionally, they act as important therapeutic targets and prognostic biomarkers in treating cancer. The growing incorporation of advanced technology to develop effective therapies is further expected to boost the global microRNA market growth during the forecast period.
