The global plasmid DNA manufacturing market size is expected to reach over US$ 300 million by 2026 and growing at a CAGR of 20% from forecast period 2019 to 2026.
There are continuous development activities carried by major players in order to test plasmid DNA applicability. Usually plasmid DNA is prepared by cesium chloride density ultracentrifugation process and it has wide applications such as clones screening, sequencing, restriction digestion, cloning, and PCR. Plasmid DNA can be purified by various technique but most it is purified by using bacteria technique. These techniques include various methods such as alkaline lysis and ammonium acetate precipitation, and ion-exchange columns such as Qiagen columns, cesium chloride gradient separation, or PEG precipitation methods. Aldevron, Cobra Biologics Limited, Delphi Genetics, and VGXI, Inc., are some of the major manufacturers involved in manufacturing of the plasmid DNA.
Increased cancer prevalence is expected to boost the production of plasmid DNA. In applying gene therapy to diagnose and treat diseases in patients, plasmid DNA is used. Increased awareness about gene therapy promotes the growth of market for the production of plasmid DNA during upcoming period. This is mainly due to increase in gene therapy products, accepted to treat rare diseases worldwide and availability of approved gene therapy products. Plasmid DNA (pDNA) is the base for DNA vaccines and gene therapies for many infectious, acquired, and genetic diseases, including HIV-AIDS, Ebola, Malaria, and various cancer types, enteric pathogens, and influenza. The advantages of DNA vaccines are high, not contaminating and focusing on immune response only to those anti-immunization-wishing antigens and long-term persistence of immunization protection compared to conventional vaccines. These are the factors leading to the growth of plasmid DNA manufacturing. Well-developed infrastructure in developed countries that is able to support the R&D activities, high investment by government and private players, coupled with introduction of new various protocols in order to support the manufacturing of various products are some other major factors expected to support the growth of the target market.
Gene therapy has various complications such as risk of mutagenesis, safety & efficacy issues and strict regulatory framework which is resulting in limited adoption thus hampering the growth of the market. Lack of developed infrastructure in order to conduct the R&D activities, limitations pertaining to investment for adoption of advanced technology, and low awareness of the treatment are among other major factors expected to hamper the growth of the target market. Developing nations have poor access to such sophisticated treatments and the costs of these are sky high making it out of reach to most of the population.
Technological progress to address traditional vector production challenges provides lucrative opportunities to the manufacturers. Development of an adaptive electroporation system for intratumoral plasmid DNA delivery where pro-inflammatory cytokine interleukin 12 encoded plasmid DNA intratumoral electroporation promotes innate and adaptive immune responses related to antitumor effects. Fixed parameters for pre-clinical tumors consisting of cells implanted into the skin are optimized in clinical electroporation conditions. These conditions can be limited to clinically important tumors, because implanted models cannot detect the heterogeneity found in genetically engineered mouse models or clinical tumors. Variables affecting the result of treatment include tumor size, vascularization degree, fibrosis and necrosis that can produce the transfers of suboptimal genes and the results of variable therapies. To address this, an electroporation generator controlled by feedback was developed that can measure the electrochemical properties of tissue in real time.
Segment Analysis, by Application
Gene therapy is a promising therapeutic treatment for various inherited as well as genetic disorder. Rapid technological advancements and introduction of novel products and techniques that are safe and reliable for treatment of various disorders is expected to support the segment growth.
