DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Viral Vectors and Plasmid DNA Manufacturing Market, 2016-2026" report to their offering.
The "Viral Vectors and Plasmid DNA Manufacturing Market, 2016-2026" report provides an extensive study of the rapidly growing market of gene therapy vectors, with a special focus on lentivirus, AAV, adenovirus, retrovirus and plasmid DNA. Gene therapies require a viral or non-viral vector to efficiently transfer the therapeutic gene into targets cells. It is well known that the gene therapy market is characterized by a robust pipeline of drugs targeting several therapeutic indications. The pipeline is witnessing continuous progression that has further led to an upward surge in demand for gene delivery tools, including both viral and non-viral vectors.
Eight gene therapies have been approved so far; these are (in the order of their approval) Gendicine®, Oncorine®, Rexin-G®, Glybera®, Neovasculagen®, Imlygic®, Strimvelis and Zalmoxis®. Strimvelis, one of the most recently approved gene therapy, received a market authorization from the European Commission in May 2016. In addition, over 500 gene therapy candidates are in different stages of clinical development; for these, approximately 1,700 clinical studies are currently being conducted in various regions across the globe.
Looking at the evolutionary trends, we believe that the market will continue to be steadily driven in the mid to long term by expansions of existing and establishment of new dedicated manufacturing facilities. Technological advancements to mitigate challenges posed by conventional methods of vector production will act as a key enabler to this growth.
Several players, including pharmaceutical companies, research institutes, contract manufacturing organizations and non-profit organizations, are playing a critical role in the development and production of these vectors. Led by technological advancements, these organizations have developed and introduced proprietary platforms to overcome the challenges posed by conventional production technologies and have also made heavy investments in the expansion of their existing capabilities for vector production.
During the course of our study, we identified over 140 organizations that are actively involved in the production of viral vectors and plasmid DNA
