Cancer Gene Therapy Market size to exceed $4.3bn by 2024

Cancer Gene Therapy Market size was USD 805.5 million in 2015, with 20.7% CAGR estimation from 2016 to 2024; as per a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc. 

Globally, rising cancer prevalence will increase demand for gene therapy as the effective personalized treatment choice.  According to WHO, cancer incidence is projected to rise by 50% to reach 15 million by the end of this decade. This alarming increase in number of patients necessitates this as a potential treatment approach addressing the growing global burden of the disease. 

Increased adoption of emerging genomic technologies such as NGS and high density micro array coupled with favorable government initiatives will fuel global cancer gene therapy market size. For instance, CDC supports nationwide screening programs for control of breast, cervical and colorectal cancer among low-income women with little or no health insurance. However, high cost of development lack of reimbursement and regulatory processes will restrain industry growth.

Growing number of clinical trials and availability of wide range of genes and vectors used in these trials will enable emergence of new treatment modalities to help make cancer a manageable disease. By the end of 2012, the number of clinical trials crossed 1,800 worldwide. 

Adenoviral vector remains as the most common oncology application due to its competent nuclear mechanism and low pathogenicity. It is widely used in replacement approaches, suicide and gene-based immunotherapy, and syndicate with chemotherapy and is anticipated to grow at 20% CAGR. 

Retroviral vector-mediated gene transfer dominated the development by enabling the conversion of single stranded RNA into a double stranded DNA molecule, which steadily integrates into the target cell genome. These vectors are used to permanently modify the host cell nuclear genome and will register a robust growth of over 20%. 

U.S. led the industry owing to increased R&D funding and other government initiatives. Growing number of biotech companies are engaging in R&D and clinical trials of gene therapy products. Increased demand for DNA vaccines and increasing interest of venture capitalists to invest in commercialization of gene therapies will trigger industry expansion. 

China cancer gene therapy market size attributed to over 35% APAC revenue in 2015. With the launch of Gendicine and increasing healthcare expenditure and robust R&D facilities will enable industry growth.
