Viral Vector Purification/Virus Purification Products Market 2020-2030 -

DUBLIN--()--The "Viral Vector Purification / Virus Purification Products Market (kit, prepacked column, resin, cassette, filter plate, capsule, reagent and others), 2020-2030" report has been added to's offering.

This report features an extensive study of various products available for viral vector purification, in addition to the current market landscape and future potential of product developers.

One of the key objectives of the report was to estimate the existing market size and identify potential growth opportunities for viral vector purification product developers, over the coming decade. Based on various parameters, such as the likely increase in number of clinical studies related to viral vector-based therapies, anticipated growth in target patient population, existing price variations across different purification techniques, and the success of cell and gene therapy products (considering both approved and late-stage clinical candidates), we have provided an informed estimate of the likely evolution of the market in the short to mid-term and long term, for the period 2020-2030.

In order to provide a detailed future outlook, the projections have been segmented on the basis of:

  • [A] type of viral vector (AAV, adenovirus, lentivirus, retrovirus and others)
  • [B] type of purification technique (chromatography, centrifugation and filtration)
  • [C] type of therapy (gene therapy, cell therapy and viral vaccines)
  • [D] therapeutic area (oncological disorders, cardiovascular disorders, ophthalmic disorders, metabolic disorders, inflammation & immunological diseases and others)
  • [E] scale of operation (preclinical/clinical and commercial)
  • [F] key geographical regions (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World)

Since the approval and launch of cell and gene therapy products, such as Zolgensma (2019), ZYNTEGLO (2019), Luxturna (2017), KYMRIAH (2017) and YESCARTA (2017), there has been a significant increase in demand for viral vectors. Experts believe that the number of such therapies is likely to double over the next couple of years. It is also worth mentioning that this particular field of medical research received close to USD 10 billion in funding in 2019.

Currently, over 1,000 cell and gene therapy-related clinical trials are being conducted, worldwide. Genetic manipulation is a basic requirement of cell and gene therapy development, and, as a result, gene delivery vectors are considered to be of utmost importance in this domain. So far, viral vectors (such as those based on adeno-associated viruses (AAV), adenoviruses, lentivirus, retroviruses and other viruses) have been shown to be the most versatile gene delivery tools available, having demonstrated high transfection efficiencies in both preclinical and clinical settings.

Further, taking into account the therapeutic efficacy and low side effects profiles of cell and gene therapies, the demand for such interventions is anticipated to grow at a rapid pace, resulting in a proportional increase in need for appropriate vector systems, as well. However, viral vector development and manufacturing is a complex and cost intensive process. One of the primary concerns associated with viral vector production is related to yield; in fact, a singular batch run is estimated to incur losses of up to 70% during the purification step alone.

A number of techniques are presently used for viral vector purification. Over the years, size-based viral purification strategies, such as density-gradient ultracentrifugation, ultrafiltration, precipitation and size-exclusion chromatography (SEC), have become part of the accepted industry standard. However, recently, stakeholders have begun relying more on affinity chromatography-based purification regimens, given its robustness and high selectivity. Presently, several companies claim to offer a diverse range of virus purification solutions, including, filter plates, prepacked chromatography columns and resins, and consolidated kits, for viral vector (virus) purification. As indicated earlier, downstream processing of viral vector products is challenging.

Existing separation and purification techniques are not efficient when it comes to purifying viral vectors at large scales. Moreover, these techniques are often unable to separate complete viruses from empty capsids, thereby, compromising product recovery. Therefore, it has become essential for stakeholders to develop innovative ways to optimize the purification process, in order to further improve virus recovery and facilitate effective removal of contaminants/impurities.

Currently, the viral vector purification products market is driven by the abovementioned surge in demand for viral vectors. In this context, it is worth mentioning that there are several virus based vaccines under development against the novel SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus strain. In fact, according to the WHO, there are over 20 viral vaccines currently being investigated against the novel coronavirus. Developing the means to better purify viruses is, therefore, likely to significantly impact viable vaccine yield. The current crisis is definitely going to have a strong impact on the virus purification products market.
