Transparency Market Research (TMR) has published a new report titled, “Viral Vector & Plasmid DNA Manufacturing Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2019–2027”. According to the report, the global viral vector & plasmid DNA manufacturing market is expected to exceed a value of US$ 400 Mn by the end of 2019.
The global market is anticipated to surpass US$ 2 Bn by 2027 and expand at a high double digit CAGR from 2019 to 2027. Rise in prevalence of cancer, genetic disorders, and increase in number of clinical studies are expected to augment the global market from 2019 to 2027. The viral vector & plasmid DNA manufacturing market is projected to expand owing to an increase in the awareness regarding viral vector based treatments and technological advancements in developing countries.
Increasing prevalence of cancer, genetic diseases, and infectious diseases
According to Cancer Research UK, there were 17 million new cases of cancer in 2018 and four most common types of cancer worldwide were breast, lung, bowel, and prostate cancers, which account for approximately 43% of all new cases. According to WHO estimates, currently, 10,000 of human diseases are known to be monogenic, caused by modifications in a single gene in human DNA. The global prevalence of all single gene diseases at birth is approximately 10/1000. In Canada, it is estimated that monogenic diseases may account for approximately 40% of the work of hospital-based pediatric practice. Increased prevalence of such disorders demands improved treatments, which in turn is anticipated to propel the viral vector & plasmid DNA manufacturing market during the forecast period.
