Antisense Oligonucleotides Market Insights with Upcoming Trends Segmentation, Opportunities and Forecast to 2027

Antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs) are 15–25 nt oligonucleotides designed to tie complementary RNA targets for the degradation. They are synthesized so that they can be used to block disease processes by altering the synthesis of a specific protein. ASOs offers promising treatment options for a range of medical disorders. They facilitate the development of therapeutics affecting protein targets which cannot be treated with protein therapeutics. They can target a particular malfunctioning gene, interfere with RNA function at cellular level, and can also be silenced or modulated. It allows modifications in immune system that facilitates treatment of a wide range of autoimmune disorders – that cannot be treated with available drugs. It is easy to scale up the commercial scale GMP production of these oligonucleotides compared to other biologic therapies. Moreover, the side effects of antisense oligonucleotides are minimal and can be controlled with ease as compared to other class of drugs.

Though, the antisense oligonucleotides market has witnessed four FDA approvals [fomivirsen (Vitravene) approved in 1998 – which was discontinued due to low demand; pegaptanib (Macugen) in 2004; mipomersen (Kynamro) in 2013; and eteplirsen (Exondys 51) in 2016). However, this market is yet to achieve recognition as a valuable drug category like biologics, small molecules, and gene and cell therapy. However, in December 2016, this was projected to change with the approval of nusinersen (Spinraza) for treating spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), which is one of the most common genetic cause for infant mortality with no approved treatments. Spinraza has shown unprecedented results for the treatment of SMA in clinical trials.

Antisense Oligonucleotides Market: Drivers and Restraints

Strong pipeline of antisense oligonucleotides and increased focused on large number of product approvals and commercialization are some of the primary factors driving the growth of the global antisense oligonucleotides market. Moreover, significant advances in the field of antisense oligonucleotides at a therapeutic or clinical level is further contributing to the growth of the global antisense oligonucleotides market. However, the global antisense oligonucleotides market is grappling with numerous challenges related to diversity of oligonucleotides, delivery, and regulatory complexity. Despite several advancements at clinical levels, the delivering of active oligonucleotide to the actual site within target cells is still one of the major challenges hindering the growth of the global antisense oligonucleotides market. In addition to this, developing a new set of unique regulatory guidelines is another challenge limiting the growth of the global antisense oligonucleotides market.

Antisense Oligonucleotides Market: Overview

Although the development of oligonucleotide therapeutics commenced in 1970s, FDA has approved only four oligonucleotide drugs (of which fomivirsen was discontinued) nearly a half century later. However, the filed is gaining momentum and is set to offer promising growth opportunities with a strong pipeline of 135 oligonucleotides in various stages of clinical trials. Even when the market performance of antisense oligonucleotides is not predictable as like other segments of the industry, the future looks very promising primarily reflected by the leadings players in the market and the amount of research and development investments.

Antisense Oligonucleotides Market: Regional Outlook

Geographically, the global antisense oligonucleotides market is segmented into regions viz. North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia-Pacific excluding Japan, Japan, Middle East and Africa. North America clearly dominates the global antisense oligonucleotides market due to a strong product pipeline and increasing number of FDA approvals in the region.
