Synthetic Biology – Sectors

There are many industries where the impact of synthetic biology can be observed. This includes industries like agriculture, consumer goods, food, energy, healthcare, industrial materials, mining, packaging, and technology.

Consumer goods: Synthetic biology is the dark horse of the consumer sector. The consumer sector currently suffers from a high environmental impact and a dependency on scarce resources for high-end products. It is, therefore, a key potential market for synthetic biology. For instance, engineered mycelium for sustainable fashion. Start-ups such as Modern Meadow, MycoWorks, and Ecovative Design are engineering mycelium to make clothing resembling traditional animal leather. Brands such as Hermès, Reformation, and Wolverine Worldwide have collaborated with these start-ups.

Synthetic Biology – National Strategies and Regulation Outlook

The key countries in the synthetic biology theme are China and Australia. The latest Five-Year Plan of China focuses on the use of synthetic biology in the healthcare, food, and agriculture sectors. Artificial proteins, in particular, are a key focus with the goals of improving nutrition and reducing pressure on environmental resources. Synthetic biology is perceived as a welcome tool to help improve China’s self-sufficiency and protect its supply chains against future disruption.

The OECD estimates that over 50 nations have national bio-economy strategies. Back in 2016, the UK government’s Biodesign for the Bioeconomy plan stressed that regulations need to be framed to accommodate the continually evolving frontiers of knowledge and understanding. Since then, there have been unanticipated advances in the development and application of synthetic biology, and national frameworks and regulations have fallen off the pace, globally.

Key Highlights

  • Synthetic alternatives to meat, precious metals, natural fibers, fuel, and medicines, among others, continue to be developed. The environmental benefits of such innovations are often the focus, but these developments will also facilitate the next stage of supply chain management.
  • The biosynthetic revolution is underway and will enable lean supply chain management, decrease reliance on imports, and further support reshoring efforts. Accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic and sustained by the US-China trade wars, supply chain shifts are already visible as countries and corporations try to protect themselves against further disruption.
  • Countries that are heavily dependent on imported food may turn to synthetic biology as a means of developing a domestic agriculture sector. For example, Singapore’s ‘30 by 30’ plan aims to produce 30% of the nation’s nutritional needs domestically by 2030. Synthetic biology could increase crops’ yield and nutritional content to meet this objective. Australia, another country with poor food security, has highlighted the use of synthetic biology in the agriculture sector as a critical part of improving self-sufficiency and strengthening its national bio-economy.

Reasons to Buy

  • The field of synthetic biology is still at an early stage. Nonetheless, there already exist everyday commercial examples. For example, plant-based burgers developed by Impossible Foods contain a yeast engineered to produce soy leghemoglobin, which gives the burger a more meat-like flavor. Another example is Kymriah, a gene therapy developed by Novartis that uses engineered living cells for cancer treatment.
  • The possibilities of synthetic biology are boundless. Propelled by the growing demand for sustainable materials, environmental remediation, and innovative therapies, synthetic biology could transform numerous industries. Interest in the field is increasing every year, with annual publications related to synthetic biology exceeding 10,000 in 2022.

Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.

Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB

Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.

Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods

Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.

I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.

I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.

Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered

“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.

Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”

Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan

GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise.  The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.

I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.

One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
