This has had a positive impact on the globalmarket. Moreover, an increasing number of emerging players, the robust pipeline for gene therapies & vaccines, and technological advancements in gene therapies & vaccines drive the market. The industry is expected to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period. Technological advancement in the workflow by the players is likely to support applications with the process of AAV vector development and gene therapy operations. Many key players and emerging players are engaged in enhancing the R&D for the novel, safe, and effective gene delivery techniques. The AAV vectors are used to treat diseases, such as cystic fibrosis, DMD, retinitis pigmentosa, and various chronic diseases like cancer. The global industry has experienced an economic boost due to a rise in the demand for these vectors.

Researchers are working to develop gene-based therapies for various diseases. Although the number of patients receiving gene therapies is less, the future of gene therapy holds great promise as it is expected to revolutionize the treatment regime by targeting the genes responsible for disease pathogenesis. Various universities and institutes have a broad portfolio of gene therapy products in the pipeline, which is expected to boost the gene therapy market in the coming years. For example, the University of Massachusetts Medical School and the University of Utah are conducting a number of clinical trials that are aimed at developing and introducing new gene therapies in the market. A number of companies in the U.S. are adopting various strategic initiatives to broaden their product portfolio.

For instance, in October 2021, Merck KGaA opened its California-based viral vector manufacturing facility to expand its global footprint. This expansion would support industrial manufacturing and large-scale commercialization of viral gene therapy products.Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic is estimated to have a positive impact on the market. This is attributed to the rising demand for the manufacturing and production of therapeutics by pharmaceutical and biotech companies. This creates opportunities to enhance R&D in therapeutic areas to develop new products for the development of viral vector-based vaccines and treatments. For instance, in September 2021, the University of Oxford and Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research manufactured a vaccine to cure cancer depending upon the successful creation of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine used for the treatment of the SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19 virus.

The newly developed cancer vaccine, when used with immunotherapy, resulted in decreased tumor size by showing an anti-tumor immune response in In Vivo. This offered a greatopportunityfor adeno associated virus vector CDMO business expansion globally. On the other hand, there is a huge demand for AAV vectors under GMP conditions by the biomanufacturing facilities. The cost of AAV vector manufacturing at the laboratory scale is relatively high due to the costly downstream process, which is also time-consuming. This can be a restraining factor for the global market. However, AAV vector manufacturing is the safest and most effective method applied for emerging therapies. This will provide a lucrative growth opportunity for the market in the coming years.

The commercial segment accounted for the major share of the overall industry in 2022 with a share of 57.50% of the overall revenue. The largest market share is attributed to high R&D investments by prominent industry players to cater to the growing demand for cell and gene therapy applications. In addition, the increasing risk of lifestyle-related chronic diseases is anticipated to drive the global industry, thus propelling the industry's growth over the forecast period. Moreover, the high demand for gene therapeutics in the healthcare industry leads to more demand for clinical trials. For instance, in April 2022, 4D Molecular Therapeutics announced 4D-710 for the treatment of cystic fibrosis, which is AAV-based genetic medicine. The first patient was given the dose of genetic medicine in its phase 1 and 2 clinical trials.

A consistent supply of funds and grants has led to the proliferation of advanced therapy clinical trials in the past years. In addition, noncommercial entities are offering sponsorships to accelerate clinical trials, which is one of the key industry drivers. Universities are some of the major noncommercial sponsors for ongoing advanced therapy clinical trials. The commercial segments are estimated to register the fastest CAGR between 2023 and 2030. The development in the manufacturing infrastructure for the production of commercial-scale AAV vectors by key players spurs industry growth. For instance, Applied Genetic Technologies Corp. has developed a manufacturing facility for commercial adeno associated virus vector-based gene therapy production. It involves phase 1 and 2 preclinical research facilities. Development in the R&D for clinical research drives the commercial scale of operation at the fastest growth rate.

Therapeutic Area Insights

The neurological disorders segmentdominated the industry in 2022 and accounted for the largest share of more than 28.00% of the total revenue. It is expected to grow further at a steady CAGR retaining its leading position over the forecast years. AAV vector has a wide range of applications in clinical research for neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, spinal muscular atrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and temporal lobe epilepsy. The genetic disorders segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR between 2023 and 2030. Poor immunity, unhealthy lifestyle & eating habits, and heredity factors have increased the occurrence of genetic disorders. AAV vector-based therapies are used to treat these disorders.

Many research institutes are developing therapies and treatments for genetic disorders using adeno associated virus vectors. Moreover, key players are focusing on strategic collaborations to find novel solutions for genetic deformities treatment using adeno associated virus vectors. This has a positive impact on segment growth. For instance, in April 2020, Vertex Pharmaceuticals and Affinia Therapeutics entered into a strategic collaboration to develop AAV capsids to treat genetic therapies. AAV vector technology was used in an application with gene therapy to treat DMD, myotonic dystrophy type 1, and cystic fibrosis. AAV SmartLibrary helps the capsids with improved immunity, manufacturing capability, and tissue tropism.
