Market Revenue Analysis 2015-2021 vs. Future Outlook 2022-2032

Over the last few years, the world has seen a significant increase in focus on health care, which has resulted in a massive increase in research and development activities.

The rising prevalence of rare diseases has also increased the demand for novel treatments, which has driven gene therapy market potential in the past. A CAGR of 18.7% was recorded for the market from 2015 to 2021.

The increasing use of gene modification in a variety of treatments, as well as the increasing use of genome editing in biotechnology applications, are also expected to guide the gene therapy market in the coming years.

The global gene therapy industry is expected to be hampered by high gene therapy costs and a lack of standardization. From 2022 to 2032, demand for gene therapies is expected to grow at an astronomical CAGR of 18.5%.

The presence of companies offering exclusive lentivector platforms is hastening revenue growth in this segment. Oxford Biomedica Plc, for example, has an exclusive lentivector platform, an advanced and safe gene delivery system capable of carrying payloads of up to 9kb and capable of permanent modification of dividing and nondividing cells while requiring no pre-existing immunity.

Prominent Gene Therapy Industry Growth Drivers

Research and development (R&D) activities are also expected to have a significant market impact

Research and development (R&D) activities are also expected to have a significant impact on the market. Several companies are aiming to build a gene therapy platform with a strategy centered on establishing a transformational portfolio through in-house capabilities and enhancing those capabilities through strategic collaborations, R&D expansion, and potential licensing, merger, and acquisition activities.

For example, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation announced an investment in SalioGen Therapeutics in January 2022 to support the company's preclinical research into novel gene therapy for cystic fibrosis. SalioGen's Gene Coding approach is intended to activate, deactivate, or modify the function of any gene in the genome.

Key Challenges Prevalent in the Global Gene Therapy Market

Gene Therapy's High Costs will stifle overall Market Growth

Gene therapies are expensive medical procedures that necessitate significant capital investment on the part of both the provider and the patient, which limits the global gene therapy market's growth.

Gene modifications necessitate precision equipment, which significantly raises the cost of cell and gene therapy and limits the global adoption of these therapies. Due to high costs and low adoption, viral vector gene therapies are expected to grow at the slowest rate.

Region-wise Analysis

What is the Growth Outlook for Gene Therapy in North America?

With a revenue share of more than 56% in 2022, the North American regional market will lead the industry and will grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast years. Several government agencies are investing in the region because of a strong regulatory framework for promoting the development of cellular therapy and the presence of a large number of biopharma companies.

This, in turn, is propelling the regional market forward. The presence of centers and institutes engaged in gene therapy research and development is expected to drive the market in North America.

Also, the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, rising healthcare expenditure, the presence of advanced healthcare infrastructure, and the availability of reimbursements are also major factors driving the market growth. The approval of Zolgensma in 2019 has, on the other hand, greatly favored the US market. Despite the price controversies, the product is expected to have profitable revenue growth in the forecast period.

Growing Involvement of Public and Private Research Organizations fueling the growth of the APAC Market

The Asia-Pacific (APAC) gene therapy market was valued at US$ 351 Million in 2021, with a CAGR of 18.3%. This is accomplished through the optimization of vectors such as retroviruses and lentiviruses, the introduction of new techniques such as induced pluripotent stem cells in conjunction with current gene editing models, and even trials in germ cells.

The focus on healthcare in India has increased, and this trend is expected to drive gene therapy demand over the forecast period. The country is also seeing an increase in cancer cases, which is encouraging the use of gene therapy in oncology treatments. The key players in the APAC gene therapy market include Novartis AG, Sibiono GeneTech Co. Ltd., Shanghai Sunway Biotech Co. Ltd., Kolon Life Science Inc., AnGes Inc., and Amgen Inc.

The Europe Gene Therapy market expected to grow rapidly over the Forecast Period

During the period 2022-2032, the European gene therapy market is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 19%. The European market is the best for manufacturing cell and gene therapy products. Europe is home to more than 238 regenerative medicine companies. Europe is home to nearly a quarter of the world's regenerative medicine therapeutic developers.

In 2020, the oncology segment accounted for 31% of the European cell and gene therapy market. Currently, over 61 companies in Europe are specializing in cell therapy and introducing cell therapy products. Some key players in the Europe market are Novartis, Spark Therapeutics, Amgen, Gilead Sciences and Organogenesis.
