The Global Viral and Non-Viral Vector Manufacturing Market is estimated to reach over USD 23.49 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 19.04 % during the forecast period.
Viral vectors are used to convey genetic material into cells and have become a popular method for gene transfer due to their high transfection effectiveness, sustained gene expression, and efficient gene delivery. Plasmid DNA is essential in the healthcare industry, as it is used as a therapeutic agent in gene therapy and the production of vaccine antigens. The growing usage of gene therapy to treat viral infections such as adeno-associated viruses, poxviruses, herpes simplex viruses, and retroviruses is expected to boost gene therapy acceptance, which will help to push viral vector and plasmid DNA manufacturing market expansion. Furthermore, demand for viral vectors and plasmid DNA production is expected to rise in the next years due to the rising need for DNA treatments and cancer research R&D. The partnership focused on increasing the chromatographic separation of AAV-based vectors using several AAV types. As a result, such collaborations are expected to improve the manufacturing efficiency and scalability of gene therapies, allowing for the global availability of viral vectors and creating lucrative market opportunities. Gene treatments are being developed via viral vectors and plasmid DNA, which is one of the fastest expanding areas in advanced medicines. Healthcare companies are developing DNA vectors for vaccine manufacturing. Many challenges affect the manufacturers of viral vectors and plasmid DNA whose products are in phase III clinical trials and commercial production of viral vectors. Many existing vector production technologies are inadequate in terms of productivity, efficiency, stability, and other factors.
The Viral and Non-Viral Vector Manufacturing market is segmented based on vector type, diseases, and application. Based on vector type, the market is segmented as Viral Vector (Adenoviral Vector, Retroviral Vector, Adeno-Associated Viral Vector, Lentiviral Vector, Vaccinia Viral Vector, Other Viral Vector), Non-Viral Vectors, (Plasmid DNA, Lipid-Based Non-Viral Vector, Polymer-Based Non-Viral Vector, Other Non-Viral Vector (Peptide-Based and Hybrid/Combination)). Based on application, the market is categorized into gene therapy, vaccinology, cell therapy and other applications. The market is segmented based on diseases includes Cancer, Genetic Disorder, and Infectious diseases.
Based on Viral vectors, the non-Viral vectors segment is accounted as a major contributor in the Viral and Non-Viral Vector Manufacturing market
The Non-Viral vectors category is expected to hold a significant share in the global Viral and Non-Viral Vector Manufacturing market in 2021. The COVID-19 viral vector vaccines use non-replicating viral vectors. The market will continue to increase as more non-viral vectors are used in vaccine development in the occurrence of a pandemic. According to a PubMed paper published in 2017, the development of non-viral DNA vectors has progressed substantially, particularly in the reduction of plasmid vector length. This factor is also playing a vital role in the segment's growth.
Vaccinology segment witnessed growth at a rapid rate.
The vaccinology segment is projected to proliferate in the global Viral and Non-Viral Vector Manufacturing market. This is because viral vectors are regularly used in vaccine development due to their efficiency benefits. Positives include the ability to encourage a comprehensive immunological response, as well as the safety profiles and convenience of manufacture. Furthermore, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has approved the use of AAV in clinical trials since it may express epitomal genes without integrating into the host genome. In addition, attempts to design and enhance immunization schedules will drive the development of novel vaccines, especially in countries such as the US, Germany, the UK, China, and India.
In the region, the North America Viral and Non-Viral Vector Manufacturing market holds a significant revenue share.
The North America Viral and Non-Viral Vector Manufacturing market is expected to register the highest market share in terms of revenue soon due to the presence of a significant number of research centres engaged in advanced therapy research and development. Furthermore, the construction of manufacturing units by competitors from other countries in North America is a driving force behind the region's market expansion. In addition, Asia Pacific is projected to grow at a rapid rate in the global Viral and Non-Viral Vector Manufacturing market. This is due to the creation of accelerated approval processes, the growing pool of patient population, growing private and government investments, and rising healthcare requirements. Furthermore, the unmet demands in the field of personalized medicine are driving the growing demand for viral vectors.
The key players in the Viral and Non-Viral Vector Manufacturing market have shifted their focus towards bio-based components for product manufacturing and are initiating effective strategies such as mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures of major and domestic players to enhance product portfolio and strengthen their market footprint across the globe.
