MARKET DRIVERS:

The growing prevalence of genetic diseases, cancer and infectious diseases primarily drives the growth of the viral vector manufacturing market. Viral vectors have become a promising tool in gene therapy, immunotherapy, and vaccine development and these are being used to deliver genetic material into target cells. The growing understanding of genetic disorders and advancements in gene therapy research contributes to the growing demand for viral vector manufacturing. The growing patient population suffering from cancer and the continuous pursuit of more effective treatment strategies fuels the demand for viral vector manufacturing in this field. The ongoing efforts to combat infectious diseases and the need for effective preventive measures also boost the demand for viral vector manufacturing and drive market growth.

The growing number of clinical trials of viral vectors and the availability of financing for gene therapy development is primarily driving the expansion of the global viral vector manufacturing market. Due to an increase in the number of gene therapy-based products, the global viral vector manufacturing market is rapidly expanding. In addition, the rise of molecular biology hastened genomic sequencing, which is projected to strengthen precision medicine even further. The advancements in molecular biology and medical research bring gene therapy closer to a progressive threshold, allowing viral vector manufacturing to expand and revolutionize patient care. The high demand for effective cancer therapeutics, a fast-track approval process, and the potential for novel drugs to become blockbuster products further drive notable R&D investments in viral vector-based cancer therapeutics and support market growth.

The competition in this field is expected to heat up in the near future due to a rise in gene therapy approvals and, as a result, an increase in manufacturing capabilities. As a result, the companies collaborate for advanced gene therapy as an effective strategy to establish worldwide leadership. While some viral vector manufacturing market players engage in partnership programs, others expand their current viral vector manufacturing capabilities, boosting their position as viral vector manufacturing market drivers.

MARKET RESTRAINTS:

Virus vectors have the limitation of having a short lifespan. Furthermore, the expensive cost of gene-based medical interventions may restrict viral vector demand. Some other vital restraints to the market for viral vectors and plasmid DNA manufacture are time-consuming and highly regulated vector production methods and insufficient capacity for vector production. Stringent regulations and complex approval processes associated with viral vector manufacturing is one of the major factors hampering the market growth. Safety issues related to viral vectors, such as immune response, toxicity, and potential adverse effects and the complex manufacturing processes involved in viral vector production, including scalability, purification, and quality control hinder the market growth. The cost-intensive nature of viral vector manufacturing, limited vector efficiency in delivering genetic material to target cells and immunogenicity issues further impede the market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global viral vector manufacturing market:

The COVID-19 pandemic has opened significant opportunities for market participants. For example, in December 2020 and February 2021, multinational pharmaceutical companies such as AstraZeneca and Janssen Pharmaceuticals developed COVID-19 viral vector-based vaccines, respectively. Aside from these firms, several viral vector-based vaccines are now in development. As a result, demand for viral vectors has increased, resulting in increased revenue for viral vector manufacturers. Thus, the global importance of vaccine development has been highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), preclinical investigations have been conducted on 151 vaccine candidates, with 42 vaccines advancing to clinical trials. The fact that at least two adenovirus-based vaccine candidates are now in phase III development, and another has been approved in Russia highlights the relevance of viral vector manufacture. In addition, the recent COVID-19 virus outbreak has prompted the use of viral vectors in vaccine research. Although viral vectors were widely employed for vaccine production before the introduction of COVID-19, the scientific community has had to repurpose existing approaches due to the necessity of developing a vaccine against this virus. In the COVID-19 viral vector vaccines, non-replicating viral vectors are used.
