The various factors driving the gene therapy market include the rising incidence of cancer and other diseases, growing gene therapy pipeline and increasing funding for the gene therapy research. However, high cost associated to gene therapies and few reimbursement challenges are expected to hinder the growth of the gene therapy market. National cancer Institute estimates 1,806,590 new cases of cancer to be diagnosed in the United States and 606,520 people would die from the disease.

The manufacture and delivery of treatments, research and clinical development, and commercial operations are the three areas within the gene therapy sector which have been most interrupted amid COVID-19 crisis. The development of gene therapies has been less affected. The pandemic also has disrupted worldwide management efforts around gene therapies. For instance, Peter Marks, Director of FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) stated that with the influx of applications for cell and gene therapies over the last five years, it should have doubled in size while it is only modestly larger, 15–20% larger in size.

Based on vector, the market is fragmented into viral and non-viral vectors. The viral vector segment dominated the market in 2019 accounting for 88.6% and is anticipated to maintain its dominance during the forecast period owing to the substantial advances in vector manufacturing, distribution, and security. Furthermore, the viral vector market is mainly bifurcated into the lentivirus, adeno-associated virus, retrovirus & gammaretrovirus, modified herpes simplex virus, and adenovirus.

Based on gene type, the market is mainly fragmented into antigen, cytokine, tumor suppressor, suicide, deficiency, receptor, and others. The antigen segment dominated the market and accounted for 19.2% in 2019 and is anticipated to maintain its dominance during the analyzed period. The gene therapy holds potential for treating various indications including oncology, rare diseases, cardiovascular, neurology, infectious and others. The oncology segment dominated the market and generated revenue of US$ 1.7 billion in 2019 owing to the increasing number of cancer cases. Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for an estimated 9.6 million deaths, or 1 in 6 deaths, in 2018.
