Impact of COVID-19
The imposition of lockdown, social distancing measures, need for isolation, and restriction on movement in the pandemic-frenzied world has affected the agriculture and food industry, both positively & negatively. The agricultural workers were required to stay at home due to lockdown, which impacted the production capacity and cross-border trading.
On the other hand, due to rising concerns for top-quality nutritious food and the requirement of advanced technologies, food safety provided profitable opportunities for the growth of synthetic biology in the agriculture and food industry.
Gene Synthesis Accounted for the Largest Market Share
Based on the Technology, the market bifurcates into Gene Synthesis, Next Generation DNA Sequencing, Genome Engineering, and Bioinformatics Technologies. In 2019, the gene synthesis technology acquired the largest share in the Global Synthetic Biology in Agriculture and Food Industry owing to its extensive use with genome engineering for efficiency and ease intargeting and editing.
Additionally, high demand for synthetic DNA and RNA in the agriculture and food industry proliferates the growth of the overall market across the globe, reveals MarkNtel Advisors in their research report "Global Synthetic Biology in Agriculture and Food Market Analysis, 2021."
Crop Yield Management Dominated the Market
