The global cancer gene therapy market size is expected to reach around US$ 3.2 Bn by 2026 and growing at a CAGR of around 29.7% over the forecast period 2019 to 2026.
Cancer has been increasing widely across the globe and can be medicated by somatic aberration in the host genome. The researchers and scientist discovered the therapy in genetic manipulation to improve cancer regression and find a potential cure for the disease. The cancer gene therapy includes transferring of genetic material into a host cell through Ex-vivo and In-vivo and manipulation of the tumor microenvironment, to reduce tumor vasculature. The main function of cancer gene therapy is regeneration or replacement of mutated genes with healthy genes. Based on product, different types of cancer gene therapy products such as viral vectors, non-viral vectors, and others are used. According to WHO, there are about 18 million cancer cases in 2018, in which 9.5 million cases were in men and 8.5 million in women and estimated 9.6 million deaths in 2018.
The growth of the cancer gene therapy market is primarily driven by the rising prevalence of cancer, increase in geriatric population across the globe, and technological advancements in cancer gene therapy. Furthermore, increase in demand and preference for non-invasive treatment and expanding base of cancer patients worldwide, is estimated to boost the market growth. Moreover, changing lifestyles of consumers across developed countries, growing pharmaceutical and medical industry, technological advancement and increase in the number of applications are expected to create opportunities for the manufacturers in the global market over the forecast period. However, high treatment costs and low purchasing power of consumers are expected to hamper the growth of the global cancer gene therapy market in the coming years.
By type, ex-vivo cancer gene therapy segment dominated the cancer gene therapy market
The ex-vivo cancer gene therapy segment accounted for approximately 54% of the share in the global cancer gene therapy market in 2018. Increase in demand for treatment in blood cancer, creating and modification of cells outside body to increase the stability of treatment, and rising incidences of various diseases is further expected to raise segment over the forecast period.
By end-use, hospitals segment dominated the cancer gene therapy market
The hospitals segment accounted for approximately 41% of the share in the global cancer gene therapy market in 2018. Growing demand for multi-specialty treatment and devices and cataract procedures and growing consumer preference towards technology advanced surgical procedures performed in hospitals is further expected to raise segment over the forecast period. Owing to its growing number of surgery, growing number of devices requirement in hospitals, and supportive government initiatives for cancer gene therapy in hospitals further grows the demand for cancer gene therapy in hospitals applications during the forecast period.
By product, non-viral vectors segment dominated the cancer gene therapy market
The non-viral vectors segment accounted for approximately 44% of the share in the global cancer gene therapy market in 2018. The non-viral vectors have low toxicity and immunogenicity that reduces the risks of infections and allergies in patients in treatment of cancer. Geriatric population across the globe and growing incidence of cataract, and rising demand for safe surgery is further expected to raise segment over the forecast period.
