Market Insights

According to Market Research Future, the global Gene Therapy Market is estimated to reach the highest market share with a growth rate of 40.7% during the forecast period, at a market size of USD 524 million.


Gene therapy is a method in which a slice of DNA is introduced into the cell through a vector. The most important players invest in the production of cell and gene therapy treatments due to their specific target. Gene therapy consists mainly of two types, somatic gene therapy, and germline gene therapy, depending on the target cell type. The progress of the global gene therapy market is ascribed to several factors, such as the robustness of the product portfolio, the growing investments of the main players, the high prevalence of target diseases, and the demand for innovative medicines. However, the high costs of product development and stringent regulatory policies should slow the development of the global gene therapy market. The global gene therapy market is currently influenced by several market participants. Key players are engaged in strategic partnerships and product launches to strengthen their market positions.
