Route of Administration Insights

Based on the route of administration, the report is segmented into oral, inhalation, transdermal, injectable, ocular, nasal, and topical. The oral segment captured the largest share in 2015. Pharmaceutical companies are focusing on reducing the amount of API per dose and increase the bioavailability at the site of action.

The potency and safety of biotechnology agents are attracting the biopharmaceutical companies to invest largely in research and development of these drugs. These biological drugs are rapidly replacing their traditional counterparts and most of them are prone to deterioration by oral route; thus injectable drug delivery is a preferred route of administration. Additionally, the advancements in injectable devices which enable the convenient self-injection by the patients are some of the factors expected to fuel the growth of the injectable segment during the forecast period.

Methods Insights

Based on the method used, gene delivery system is segmented as in situ and ex vivo. Most of the currently approved drugs act by in situ methods. Thus, the in situ segment is currently dominating the industry with the largest share.

High focus on the in situ methods owing to its ease of performance is expected to make it the fastest growing segment in the space. However, the segment growth is expected to impede the low efficiency of transduction procedures.

Vector Insights

Viral vectors currently dominate the gene delivery systems market with 4 approved drugs. More than 60% of the ongoing clinical trials on gene therapies are based on the viral vectors for transfection. Thus, the viral segment is expected to remain dominant throughout the forecast period.
