Oct 2012| BIO071B| BCC Publishing

Report Highlights

The global aptamer market was valued at $40 million in 2011 and should reach nearly $99 million in 2012. Total market value is expected to reach nearly $3.7 billion in 2017 with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 106.3%.

Report Includes

  • An overview of the specific applications for nucleic acid aptamers for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes, with a focus on applications judged to be commercially viable rather than enabling of basic research
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2011, estimates for 2012, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2017
  • Identification of emerging technology growth opportunities in aptamer use as adjuvants for siRNA delivery, vaccines, and antisense technologies
  • Examination of high growth and market potential segments of the industry, and new and established companies in the arena
  • Comprehensive company profiles of major players in the industry.

Report Scope

The scope of this report covers all major known applications of aptamers in the biotechnology arena.  Nevertheless, the study focuses on applications judged to be commercially viable rather than enabling of basic research.

Analyst Credentials
