RNAi Drug Delivery Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The size of the Global RNAi Drug Delivery Market is estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 27.2% from 2022 to 2027. The size of the market is estimated to be worth USD 166.8 billion by 2027 from USD 50.12 billion in 2022.

RNAi is a defense mechanism employed by Eukaryotes to degrade exogenous genes such as viruses. It is exclusively called gene silencing. We can initiate this by injecting RNAi-based drugs into the human body called RNAi Drug Delivery. RNAi Drug Delivery is an emerging therapeutic method. This method is specific to the point and has fewer side effects. It is possible to cure cancer with this method by controlling gene mutation. From 2006 onwards, various clinical trials are being held, and people are investing billions in this market to approve and research different types of RNAi-based Drugs.


Factors such as the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases like cancer and heart diseases and innovative drug delivery applications drive the global RNAi drug delivery market.

The rise in account of chronic diseases such as cancer and cardiac malfunctioning leads to a constant increase in demand for the RNAi drug delivery market across the world. Government authorities in developing countries are taking measures for providing advanced drug delivery options to all sections of people to enhance healthcare services, which are fuelling the growth of the Global RNAi drug delivery market. Also, medical research organizations are continually putting efforts into developing effective RNA therapeutics. An increasing number of academic research and activities are also catalyzing the growth of the global RNAi drug delivery market. Other factors boosting the development of the market are increased adoptions of innovative drug delivery technologies, enhancement of drugs by improving stability. Also, it reduces the risk of side effects and other complications in patients. Also, Research carried out in the RNA Therapeutic field has also amplified the growth in the Global RNA Drug Delivery Market.


High investment and strict regulations are some of the major restraints of this market. The delivery of RNAi Drugs to specific tissues is the key challenge faced by the market. High costs associated with research are restraining the market and are expected to challenge the growth of the global RNAi drug delivery market. Other factors that challenge the market's development are inappropriate regulations, high risk of failure, shortage of skilled professionals in drug control laboratories, and lack of proper distribution networks of RNAi drug delivery due to the inadequate infrastructure of healthcare in developing countries. Accurate delivery of RNA molecules is a critical challenge to the companies involved in the Global RNAi drug delivery market.


Increased focus of research and development activities from the private and public organizations on nanotechnology to meet the continually rising demand of the RNAi drug delivery method is expected to be creating more growth opportunities for the market over the forecast period. Increasing economies of the countries such as the UK, Canada, and highly populated countries such as China and India, where healthcare is booming rapidly, is creating a wide range of opportunities for the stakeholders and others involved in the global RNAi drug delivery market.

COVID-19 impact on the global RNAi drug delivery market:

The Corona Virus is a quickly emerging disease across the globe with destructive conclusions. The impact of COVID-19 is affecting significant markets worldwide. Due to the pandemic time, the pharmaceutical industries, supply chain operations are being prominently restricted. The RNAi drug delivery market key players concentrate on developing vaccines taking the help of gene silencing technology, which is anticipated to propel the RNAi drug delivery market growth. The natural RNAi process may be engaged in developing superior quality therapies to overcome the virus. Moreover, this procedure enables specific binding and silencing of therapeutic targets using Short interfering RNA (siRNA). Moreover, as the COVID-19 is expected to continue worldwide, fundamental growth is seen in the demand for RNAi drug delivery technologies, which impels the market growth during the assessment period.
