Viral Vector Manufacturing Market Size, Share, Global Revenue, Future Demand, Top Leading Manufactures by 2027

Viral vector manufacturing refers to the production of a carrier called a vector which is genetically engineered to deliver the gene because they can deliver the new gene by infecting the cell.  Considered as a drug substance, viral vectors are used in gene therapy and vaccinology (vaccines). In the case of cell therapies, the scrutiny for testing for adventitious agents is high.

Acknowledging the exponential accruals, the market is witnessing currently, Market Research Future (MRFR) in its recently published study report asserts that the global viral vector manufacturing market will garner a value of USD 319 MN by 2023, registering a whopping CAGR of approx. 22.65% throughout the forecast period (2018-2023).

Gene therapy has seen various clinical advancement, and along with it, the viral vector manufacturing market is growing pervasively. Gene therapy is one of the most preferred treatment options for a number of chronic diseases. Over the past few years, the viral vector manufacturing market is growing rapidly mainly due to the growing prevalence of devastating neurodegenerative diseases including Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and ALS.

Viruses that are often used as vectors include retroviruses that integrate their genetic material including the new gene in the human cell, and adenoviruses, that introduce their DNA into the nucleus of the cell without letting the DNA to integrate into a chromosome. These viruses are modified so they can’t cause disease when used in people.

The increasing number of clinical trials and the growing necessity for an effective mode of disease treatment are some of the factors fostering the growth of the market. Additional factors having a synergistic effect on the growth of the viral vector manufacturing market include the increasing number of technological advancements, a growing number of ambulatory services, and government initiatives.

Inc.


The global viral vector manufacturing market is segmented based on type, disease, application, end use, and region.

  • By Type, the global viral vector manufacturing market is segmented into retroviral vectors, adenoviral vectors, adeno-associated viral vectors, and other viral vectors. The retroviral vectors segment is further sub-segmented into lentiviral vectors and gamma-retroviral vectors. The retroviral vectors segment holds the largest share in the global viral vector manufacturing market. Retroviruses contain the enzyme reverse transcriptase, which enables easy assimilation into the host DNA. This has driven the demand for retroviral vectors. The adenoviral vectors segment is also expected to exhibit rapid growth over the forecast period.
  • By Disease, the global viral vector manufacturing market is segmented into cancer, genetic disorders, infectious diseases, and others.
  • By Application, the market is segmented into gene therapy and vaccinology.
  • By End use, the global viral vector manufacturing market is segmented into pharma and biotech companies, research institutes, and others.
