Gene Therapy Market

Gene Therapy Market Propelled by Rapid Adoption of New Gene Therapies


Gene therapy involves modifying genes to treat or cure disease. It has the potential to treat a variety of both rare and common diseases by delivering genetic material into a patient’s cells for therapeutic effect. Recently, several new gene therapies have received regulatory approval to treat various genetic disorders, raising hopes for many people suffering from debilitating conditions with no cure until now.

The global Gene Therapy Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 9 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.7% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

Rapid adoption of new gene therapies: Over the past few years, multiple new gene therapies have received regulatory approvals to treat various rare genetic diseases like spinal muscular atrophy, haemophilia, and retinal dystrophy. This has driven rapid uptake of these novel therapies amongst patients. However, high cost of treatment remains a challenge for wider adoption. With continued research and development in this space, more such therapies are expected to be approved which will further propel the gene therapy market growth over the forecast period.

SWOT Analysis

Strength: Gene therapy allows direct manipulation of genes which provides potential treatment for currently incurable genetic disorders. It enables permanent cure and avoids lifetime therapy.

Weakness: High costs associated with research and development in gene therapy. Regulations for approval of new gene therapy products are complex and time consuming.

Opportunity: Increasing approval and adoption of gene therapies presents significant opportunities. Growing prevalence of cancers and genetic disorders offers scope for development of new gene therapies.

Threats: Safety issues associated with gene therapy delivery methods can negatively impact patient acceptance. Intellectual property disputes between companies can delay the availability of new therapies.
