Gene Therapy Market

Global Market Analysis and Industry Forecast: 2019-2026


Gene therapy has become one of the most rapidly growing and promising fields in regenerative medicine. As compared to conventional medicine, gene therapy is the single-dose solution for a wide application of diseases, significantly for genetic diseases, neurological, infectious and oncological disorders. Mainly encompasses the use of a viral vector to introduce an intact gene, either directly administered into the patient body (In-vivo) or indirectly via transduction of cells before infusion into the patient body (Ex-vivo), to reconstitute, remove and modify a harmful gene variant.

The global gene therapy market was valued at $1,049 million in 2018 and is estimated to reach $10,443 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 33.3% from 2018 to 2026.

Factors that drive the market growth involves, Increase in funding for R&D activities pertaining to gene therapy, For instance in 2018 cell and gene therapy companies raised over $981 Million in venture financing, Moreover in 2018 Industry merger and acquisition volume reached to $18.8 Billion with an increase of 26% from 2017.

Increased in No. of Approved Products, By the end of Q3 2019 there are a total of 15 approved cell and gene therapy products, In 2017 FDA approves KYMRIAH®, YESCARTA®, and LUXTURNA®, In 2019 ZOLGENSMA®, ZYNTEGLO® and COLLATEGENE® get market approval in the U.S., EU, and Japan respectively.

Other factors that boost the market growth involve; increase in government support, ethical acceptance of gene therapy for cancer treatment, the rise in the prevalence of cancer and an increase in awareness regarding gene therapy.

However, the high cost associated with the treatment (KYMRIAH® cost around $475,000, and LUXTURNA® costs $425,000 per Eye) and unwanted immune responses is expected to hamper the market growth.
