According to Vision Research Reports, the global gene therapy market size is expected to surpass at US$ 5.2 bn by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 40.5% from 2021 to 2028.
Gene therapy is mainly driven by the potential exhibited by CAR T-cell usage which has gained significant attention from commercial and non-commercial sponsors as a new business model. Gene therapy accounts for a significant share in the pharmaceutical industry’s pipeline, and this is anticipated to continue since products in the R&D phase would become commercially available over the next few years.
Furthermore, rapid and significant progress in the molecular and cellular biology arena, driven by technological advancements in genomics and gene-editing tools, has contributed to an increasing number of approved gene therapies as well as an expanding pipeline. According to the Alliance for Regenerative Medicine (ARM), by the end of the second quarter of 2019, there were more than 700 clinical trials ongoing globally.
With recent product approvals, the cell and gene therapy sector is witnessing increasing competition for gene therapy buyouts, resulting in hefty premiums in the marketplace. For instance, in December 2019, Roche acquired Spark Therapeutics, a company that develops and delivers gene therapies.
Despite the significant health gains offered by gene therapy, these usually comprise high upfront costs, which further pose sustainability and budget challenges to the healthcare systems. Although affordability and budget impacts are not considered as key components of the value of new therapy treatments, they are important elements for access-related decision making.
Owing to the presence of the small size of the target patient populations for several products, coupled with their applicability as one-off treatments, the prices of products need to be set at a level that makes the product economically viable for the developer. The gene therapy market has witnessed the withdrawal of several products due to their non-financial viability in the past years. Thus, value to patients and healthcare systems needs to be balanced with the financial sustainability for both, developers and payers.
New product approvals & commercialization drives market
2016, 2017, and 2018 were key milestones in the history of the gene therapy market in the U.S. and Europe, as around four gene therapy products have been approved and commercialized. These products are currently in the infancy stage of commercialization, and have exhibited highly positive therapeutic outcomes. For instance, in May 2016, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) gene therapy product, Strimvelis, received marketing approval for the treatment of patients with a very rare disease called ADA-SCID (Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, due to Adenosine Deaminase deficiency). Strimvelis is the first ex-vivo stem cell gene therapy to be approved in Europe for the treatment of ADA-SCID. Furthermore, in August 2017, the USFDA approved Novartis AG’s flagship gene therapy product, Kymriah, for the treatment of children and adults up to the age of 25 years affected with B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Thus, recent approvals of gene therapy products in the U.S. and Europe for the treatment of various life threatening disorders is projected to fuel the gene therapy market during the forecast period.
Vector type segment review

The oncological disorders segment was the largest contributor toward the market growth in 2020, owing to increase in prevalence of cancer worldwide and increase in regulatory approval of gene therapy for cancer. However, the cardiovascular diseases segment is anticipated grow at a lucrative rate during the forecast period, due to increase in number of clinical trials of gene therapies for the treatment of these diseases.
The demand for gene therapies for the treatment of cancer is estimated to grow at a high rate during the forecast period
Based on indication, the market is segmented into neurological diseases, cancer, hepatological diseases, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and other indications. The cancer segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to the approval of a growing number of gene therapies for the treatment of cancer and the rising incidence of hematologic cancers.
Non-viral vectors segment accounted for the largest share of the gene therapy market, by vector, in 2020
The market, by vector, has been segmented into viral and non-viral vectors. The non-viral vectors segment accounted for the largest share of the market in 2020. This can be attributed to the high market penetration of oligonucleotide-based non-viral vector gene therapies.
Region wise, the gene therapy market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. North America accounted for the largest market share in the gene therapy market in 2020, and is anticipated to continue this trend during the forecast period, owing to high prevalence rate of cancer, presence of high disposable income, and increase in funding for R&D activities associated with gene therapy. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to register the highest growth during the forecast period, owing to rise in number of people prone to various chronic diseases. In addition, approval and launch of gene therapy products can positively influence market expansion in the developed countries, such as Japan, Australia, and New Zealand are the major factors for the growth of the gene therapy market.
Large number of clinical pipeline studies and significant investments in gene therapy to gain the first mover advantage
The global gene therapy market is highly consolidated, with very few global players accounting for a major share. Currently, only five companies; Gilead life Sciences Inc. Spark Therapeutic Inc., Novartis AG, Sibiono GeneTech Co. Ltd, and Orchard Therapeutics Limited offer gene therapy products in the market. Most biopharmaceutical companies have invested significantly in clinical R&D for the development of gene therapy products for different chronic and genetic disorders. Large number of gene therapy products are under different stages of clinical pipeline studies, and the number of gene therapy candidates is projected to rise consistently during the forecast period. For instance, according to the Journal of Gene Medicine, there were around 2,597 gene therapy candidates under clinical trials, as of 2017. Of the total clinical studies, around 65% of studies were focused on oncology, 11% of studies were focused on monogenetic field, 7% on infectious diseases and cardiovascular disease, each.
