Published Date : Aug 2019 | No. of Pages : 140 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global viral vector manufacturing market accounted for US$ 228 million in 2019 and is expected to reach US$ 2.4 billion by 2027 growing at a CAGR of 23% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027. The increasing prevalence of target diseases and disorders, a rising number of clinical studies and availability of funding for gene therapy development, and potential applications in novel drug delivery approaches are some of the factors propelling the market growth. However, the excessive cost of gene therapies and possible mutagenesis impede the market.

Viral Vector Manufacturing comprises the generation of these vectors, which then have to be purified in order to meet the quality attributes required for further use as gene delivery systems. Viral or non-viral vector methods are used the inefficient transfer of the therapeutic gene into the target cells. Viral vectors used in gene therapy include adenovirus, lentivirus, retrovirus, and adeno-associated viral (AAV). Non-viral vectors generally depend on delivery of plasmid DNA.

Vectors are living organisms that transmit infectious diseases between humans and from animals to humans. There are several types of viral vectors that are used to deliver nucleic acids into the genetic makeup of cells, including retrovirus, lentivirus, adenovirus, adeno-associated virus, and herpes simplex virus. Viral vectors are highly valued to transfer genetic material into target cells and therefore are explored as vehicles in various therapeutic areas.

Key factors expected to drive growth of the global viral vector manufacturing market is increasing funding in the biopharmaceutical production. In addition, increasing healthcare expenditure, growing ageing population, technological advancement in genetic engineering sector, growing interest in new space of research i.e. gene therapy applications are some other factors expected to drive growth of the global viral vector manufacturing market. Furthermore, increasing accessibility for healthcare facilities, growing demand for effective disease treatments, growing incidence of chronic diseases are some other factors expected to drive growth of the global target market over the forecasted period.
