The global Cell and Gene Therapy Market

Cell and Gene Therapy Market Propelled by Rising Disease Burden

Cell and gene therapy refers to a medical approach that employs cells or genes as drugs to treat diseases. It involves modifying cells or genes to treat disease or restore function. Some key applications of cell and gene therapy include cancer, cardiovascular diseases, neurological disorders, and genetic disorders. The global cell and gene therapy market is driven by the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and rising R&D investments fornovel treatment approaches.

The global Cell And Gene Therapy Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 15 billion in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.4% over the forecast period 2023-2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:
Growing disease burden of cancer and other chronic conditions worldwide has fueled clinical development of cell and gene therapy products over the past few years. According to WHO, chronic diseases now account for approximately 60% of all deaths globally. Moreover, cancer alone claims over 9 million lives annually worldwide. Various cell and gene therapy products targeting cancer and other chronic diseases are currently under clinical trials. For instance, chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CAR-T) therapy has shown promising results for treating blood cancers. With continuous technological advancements, cell and gene therapy is gaining prominence as a viable treatment approach for different disease conditions with high unmet needs. This growing acceptance and application of cell and gene therapy across various therapeutic areas is expected to propel the market growth over the forecast period.
