The global Gene Delivery Technologies market size is expected to be worth around US$ 8.9 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Gene Delivery Technologies market size was valued at US$ 2.6 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 15.5% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

Technological advancements in viral vectors, a growing pipeline of advanced therapies, and a rising number of regulatory approvals for advance therapy products are some key driving forces of the market.

Several novel tools are being introduced for genetic alterations that have facilitated the scientific community to delineate the disease intricacies at the genomic level, leading to the emergence of novel gene delivery approaches. Furthermore, ongoing research to develop clinically relevant vectors including viral and non-viral vectors to combat chronic illnesses such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, and others through advanced therapies is spurring the market revenue.

An increase in investment and financing in the space to support the research, development, and manufacturing of various modes of gene transfer further accelerates the revenue growth. Currently, around 70% of gene and cell therapy programs are based on viral vectors leading to organic revenue growth for biological delivery technologies. The operating players are investing significantly to scale up their viral vector manufacturing capability and meet the growing demand.

Report Highlights

The biological vectors segment dominated the market for gene delivery technologies and accounted for the largest revenue share of 58.0% in 2020 owing to the huge success of Kymriah and Yescarta. Viral-vectors have received great attention since the approval of the first viral vector-based gene therapy products. The exponential increase in the number of viral vectors-based R&D programs has substantiated the acceptance of viral vectors are the key delivery mode amongst end-users.

However, several clinical challenges associated with viral systems have spurred the usage of chemical methods. Chemical gene delivery technologies such as polyethyleneimine (PEI) and polyamidoamine dendrimers are recognized as an alternative to viral gene systems for their ability in combating challenges associated with the viral systems.

The lowest penetration of the physical method is their relatively lower transfection efficiency as compared to the biological and chemical methods. Low cell viability is another major shortcoming of electroporation-based physical methods. Nonetheless, these drawbacks create opportunities for the market players striving to gain revenue share by addressing the high transfection efficiency and cell viability related issues in this segment.

The gene therapy segment dominated the gene delivery technologies market and captured the maximum revenue share of 33.0% in 2020. The growing acceptance of gene-based therapies and the consequent increase in the number of clinical research initiatives have fueled the revenue generation in this segment. Increasing approval of gene therapy products across the globe has also accelerated the segment growth.

The second-generation DNA vaccines exhibit the potential to induce more-potent humoral and cellular responses. This has facilitated the investigation of this approach of disease management in both therapeutic and preventative arenas. This is anticipated to drive the uptake of gene editing tools for vaccine development.

This segment is also expected to be benefitted significantly from the recent outbreak of SARS-CoV-2. As of August 2020, nearly 25 research groups are working towards the development of viral vector-based vaccines to contain the spread of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Similarly, around 20 research teams are aiming to explore genetic instructions for the development of nucleic acid vaccines.

With a revenue share of 41.0%, the ex vivo method dominated the market for gene delivery technologies in 2020 owing to its several advantages such as the ability to assess transduction efficiency prior to implantation of cells back into the patient and less immunogenic responses. Also, it offers high transduction efficiency leading to its high usage in research settings.

On the contrary, although in vivo gene therapy is the preferred choice of gene transduction, this mode poses challenges in cases where highly targeted delivery is required. Errors in targeted delivery result in an immune response, thus less penetration of this segment in the market for gene delivery technologies.

However, scientists are making focused efforts to accelerate R&D in this segment. For instance, in March 2020, a U.S.-based Oregon Health and Science University deployed the gene-editing tool Crispr-Cas9 to edit DNA for the treatment of a genetic form of blindness inside the human body for the first time. Such developments are expected to result in the lucrative growth of this segment.

North America dominated the market for gene delivery technologies and accounted for the largest revenue share of 39.4% in 2020. A substantial number of clinical trials are underway to assess the efficacy and safety of gene therapies as a viable treatment for cancer, genetic conditions, and HIV/AIDS in the U.S. Furthermore, a significant number of major companies that are engaged in the supply and commercialization of gene delivery technologies are headquartered in the U.S. These factors have contributed to the dominance of the region in the market for gene delivery technologies.

Multiple new collaborative research and innovation projects were introduced as part of Horizon 2020 calls. The project covers viral vector-based gene therapy trials for rare conditions. This is expected to drive the adoption of gene delivery technologies across the European nations. On the other hand, Asia Pacific countries are emerging as strong contenders in this space.
