Gene Therapy Market Dynamics:

Drivers: Funding for gene therapy research

Gene therapy is one of the latest treatment methods in the healthcare industry. It has shown promising results in treating cancer and other genetic diseases. As a result, the focus on gene therapy research has increased over the last few years. In addition, many companies focus on growth opportunities in this market by launching new and advanced products.

For example:

  • In March 2022, the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute granted USD 12 million to an Indiana University School of Medicine researcher. The grant is for exploring major themes in a gene therapy approach to safer and potentially curative treatments for hemophilia.
  • In May 2019, Locana, Inc., a leading RNA-targeting gene therapy company, received USD 55 million in Series A financing led by ARCH Venture Partners, with participation from Temasek and Lightstone Ventures (all existing investors). The company will utilize this fund for its RNA-targeting gene therapy pipeline programs.

Opportunities: Strong product pipeline

Gene therapy is a promising revenue-generation area for pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies. Currently, most key players are focusing on new gene therapy products to capitalize the gene therapy market growth opportunities. Some of these products are in the pre-clinical stage, while others are in the clinical phase and are expected to secure approval in the coming years. In addition, companies operating in the gene therapy industry are focusing on various disease areas, including hemophilia A & B, Fabry disease, wet age-related macular degeneration, mucopolysaccharidosis type II, ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency, achromatopsia, and multiple myeloma. As a result, the patient pool for gene therapies is expected to increase in the coming years.

Challenges: High treatment cost

Currently, the cost of gene therapies is very high and can reach up to USD 1 million for one patient, depending on the disease condition. Most gene therapy products in the US and EU are covered under reimbursement programs. However, it is difficult for people not covered by insurance to afford such high-cost treatments.

Key Market Players

The gene therapy market is consolidated, with three major players holding the dominant share of the market. In 2021, Biogen (US), Novartis AG (Switzerland), and Gilead Sciences, Inc. (US) were the leading players in the gene therapy market. Other major players in this market include Sarepta Therapeutics (US), Amgen, Inc. (US), Spark Therapeutics, Inc.
