Over the past few years, the healthcare industry has witnessed an improved ratio of clinical success to the number of clinical trials of cellular & gene-modified therapy products. This can be attributed to a better scientific and clinical understanding of safety risks related to the application of these products. As of May 2022, 329 cell and gene therapies are under clinical trial and are expected to increase significantly in the coming years.

Significant investments by government authorities and key market players are other factors fueling growth for cell and gene therapy manufacturing. Around USD 2.3 billion was invested in gene therapy companies over the last decade. This significantly high amount indicates that global pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are investing in leading gene therapy companies. Major service providers, including CDMOs/CMOs, and in-house manufacturers consider gene & cell therapy as an active area of investment.  

Therapy Type Insights

The cell therapy manufacturing segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 59.9% in 2022. The higher market share is attributed to the increasing number of products entering the marketplace and the high number of ongoing clinical trials. More than 360 clinical trials focusing on CAR-T cell therapies and other cell-based therapies are being studied to decipher the potential of these therapies for the treatment of various disease indications. Thus, the demand for advanced therapy manufacturing services is expected to increase in the coming years.

The gene therapy segment is expected to expand by a significant CAGR during the forecast period. With a large number of products currently in clinical trials, production process improvement has become a major need for the gene therapy manufacturing market. With an increase in investments from players and the clinical success of more products, several gene therapy companies are focusing on manufacturing and commercialization. Evaluating the existing process and its scalability, as well as for deciding on in-house or outsourced manufacturing, are some of the major factors to be considered while designing the manufacturing process for gene therapy products. Some of the key global companies are undertaking various strategic initiatives to boost their presence in the gene therapy manufacturing market. For instance, in September 2020, Pfizer collaborated with Vivet Therapeutics to manufacture Wilson's disease candidate.

Scale Insights

The pre-commercial/R&D scale manufacturing segment captured a significant revenue share of 72.34% in 2022. Certain factors such as the robust and constantly growing pipeline of gene and cell therapies along with the rise in investments are expected to have a positive impact on the segment growth. Till 2021, more than 2,073 clinical trials were ongoing for various cell therapies. Furthermore, according to an article published in September 2021, over 200 gene therapies are under clinical trials, which could translate to up to 40 new products being approved for clinical use in the next decade.

The commercial-scale manufacturing segment is projected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period. With the increasing number of regulatory approvals for gene and cell therapy products, the demand for commercial production of these therapies is increasing rapidly. The major market players such as Thermo Fisher Scientific and AGC Biologics are undertaking various strategic initiatives to fulfill the changing market demands. For instance, in February 2022, Thermo Fisher Scientific launched new Patheon Commercial Packaging Services for cell and gene therapy across the U.S. and Europe. This integrated solution combines logistics, serialization compliance, and distribution globally. Such factors are expected to offer a favorable environment for segment growth by 2030.

Mode Insights

The contract manufacturing mode segment held the highest revenue share of 66.3% in 2022. With the growing demand for cell and gene therapies, the shortage of manufacturing capacity is creating growth opportunities for contract manufacturing service providers. As the market for cell and gene therapies is non-standardized and rapidly changing, outsourcing to a contract manufacturing service provider is expected to provide a competitive advantage in terms of experience and expertise. According to an article published in March 2020, approximately 35% of the process is outsourced with traditional biologics and more than 65% of the manufacturing process for cell and gene therapies is outsourced. This can be attributed to the fact that around two-thirds of the innovation in this space is achieved by small firms that lack the capacity, expertise, and resources for the commercialization of these products. The constantly growing clinical pipeline is another contributing factor expected to accelerate segment growth.

The in-house manufacturing segment is likely to register a considerable CAGR during the forecast period. The academic institutes with personalized patient treatment programs, as well as the presence of a substantial number of entities with large capital, are the largest contributors to this segment. Moreover, advantages over contract manufacturing are also expected to boost segment growth. Small biotechnology companies developing cell and gene therapies lack resources, capacity, and infrastructure, leading to strategic partnerships with contract manufacturers. This factor is expected to boost segment growth in the coming years. Moreover, the investments in this area are expanding by 30-35% per year, further propelling the market growth.

Workflow Insights

On the basis of workflow, the process development segment accounted for a significant revenue share of 16.97% in 2022. With an increasing number of therapies advancing from clinical trials to regulatory approval, the development of well-characterized and robust methods for cell therapy production has become increasingly important. Process development strategies provide efficiency while improving the quality and safety profiles of candidate programs. Process development can be applied to all process elements, such as cell characterization, cell isolation, optimization of cell culture media, removal of impurities, and scale-up.
