Competitive Landscape of DNA Data Storage Companies

Presently, close to 30 DNA data storage companies claim to be actively providing technologies and services for DNA based data storage. The first commercially available DNA data storage product was launched in December 2023, by a French startup Biomemory SAS. The company launched a set of 2 credit-card shaped DNA memory cards with capacity of 1 KB storage each at a price of $1,000. Although, the storage capacity offered is very low at this stage, their lifespan is claimed to be 150 years.  In addition to the commercial players, academic researchers are also active in this field. Amlan Ganguly, head of computer engineering department in RIT’s Kate Gleason College of Engineering, and researchers at the University of Minnesota, have designed a microfluidic integrated circuit which can perform complex operations via artificial neural network computations on data which is stored in DNA.

Majority (53%) of the DNA data storage companies utilize enzymatic synthesis and sequencing for DNA data storage protocols.

DNA Data Storage Market Drivers: Advantages Over Silicon Based Technologies and Anticipated Launch

DNA offers a reliable DNA digital data storage solution with abundant capacity, which is way higher than other existing storage mediums. Notably, it is claimed that all of the world’s data today could theoretically be stored in 1 kg of DNA. DNA offers compelling advantages over silicon-based technologies, which facilitate the commercial usage of DNA as an effective data storage medium, especially when DNA synthesizing technology becomes cost-effective.

In addition to the DNA memory card launched by Biomemory, US based Iridia is also planning to launch its DNA storage as a service by 2026 for archives and cold data storage. Such developments will be responsible for DNA data storage market growth over the forecast period.

DNA Data Storage Market Restraints: Challenges with Data Retrieval

At present the technology is in its infancy and significant effort is required to bring the technology to the customers in an affordable and convenient manner. Companies are still trying to figure out the ways of utilizing the full potential of DNA for data storage purposes. Additionally, a greater challenge is retrieval of information, which is tedious and lengthy process, till the customers have a DNA sequencer available at hand.

Additional challenges are related to the integration of novel technologies with the current set-ups and development of standard protocols for the same.

DNA Data Storage Market Trends Analysis: Acquisition and Product Development and Commercialization are Driving the Overall Partnership Activity

Owing to its high density and extended biological life, a number of companies are exploring the potential of DNA as a sustainable option for DNA digital data storage.
