Transparency Market Research Report Added “Aptamers Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019” to its database.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/20/2016 -- Aptamers are single standard oligonucleotides that exhibit high specificity and affinity to the variety of target molecules like proteins, bacteria or whole cell. Advancement in aptamer selection technologies which enables to generate high quality of aptamers coupled with efforts of key manufacturer to develop novel aptamers for diagnostics and therapeutics purpose will drive the market growth of global aptamers market. Aptamers technology also plays an important role in the field of biomarker discovery, drug development, analytical chemistry and others. The aptamers market is witnessing tremendous growth worldwide mainly due to various advantages over antibodies such as ease of synthesis and modification, ability to develop improved and cost-effective drugs. In addition, increasing number of scientific research on aptamers further propel the market growth. However, lack of knowledge coupled with ethical hurdles will restrain the market growth of global aptamers market.

Aptamers, also referred as chemical antibodies, are nucleic acid or peptide single-stranded oligonucleotides that bind strongly to target molecules. Aptamers contain unique secondary and tertiary structures that provide high specificity to a variety of target molecules ranging from nano-molar to whole protein molecules. The aptamers market is witnessing rapid growth due to increasing efforts by key players to develop novel applications in the field of diagnostics, therapeutics and research applications using aptamer technology. Additionally, unique features of aptamers such as cost-effective development, high specificity and low immunogenic properties would attract researchers to increase investments in the aptamers market, thereby boosting market growth.
