Global plant breeding and CRISPR plants market is expected to reach USD 21.2 Million by 2025 at a CAGR of 16.4% during the forecast period from 2018-2025. The key contributing factor for the market growth is increasing demand for enhanced crop varieties using modern breeding techniques and exponential reduction in the cost of genomic solutions

Market Overview:

The CRISPR-Cas9 system is defined as a plant breeding innovation that uses site-directed nucleases to target and transform DNA with great accuracy. It was developed in 2012 by scientists from the University of California, Berkeley, and has received a lot of focus in recent years due to its wide range of uses, including biological research, breeding, and development of crops and animals, and human health applications. It also includes gene silencing, DNA-free CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing, homology-directed repair (HDR), and transient gene silencing or transcriptional repression (CRISPRi). For instance, in October 2017, DuPont Pioneer and the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center (Danforth Center) (US), entered into a collaborative agreement in which DuPont agreed to provide access to its intellectual property (IP), technology capabilities, and scientific expertise related to methods for using CRISPR-Cas technology for the development of improved seed varieties, thus, supporting the growth of the market.
