U.S. Antisense And RNAi Therapeutics Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The high dominance of cancer has become a significant cause of death in the United States, resulting in a potential healthcare burden. For example, as per data released by the American Cancer Society, there were 1,958,310 new cases of cancer and 609,820 cancer-related deaths in the U.S. in 2023. RNAi therapeutics play a significant role in controlling the number of cancer incidences. According to the article published by PubMed, RNAi therapies have been considered as an emerging alternative for treating cancer. RNAi-based therapeutics target cancer stem cells and thereby cease the normal to cancer cell transition, signifying its role in the cancer cure. This feature of RNAi therapeutics is likely to escalate its demand in the market.

Furthermore, numerous companies and research institutions are adopting collaboration and conducting clinical studies to enhance the development of innovative antisense and RNAi-based products to fulfill the unmet needs of the market and to reduce the burden of diseases thereby increasing patient. For instance, in August 2023, Sirnomics announced the successful results of RNAi therapeutics for multiple solid tumors through Phase I clinical study outcomes.
