Immune Cell Engineering Market

The Immune Cell Engineering Market Is Estimated To Witness High Growth Owing To Adoption Of Advanced Therapies

The Immune Cell Engineering Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.82 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 22. % over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:

Immune cell engineering includes techniques to modify the immune cells for enhanced activities to fight diseases. The techniques like genetic engineering, cell surface engineering and metabolic engineering are used to enhance the functions of immune cells like T cells, NK cells, dendritic cells etc. Immune cell engineering has wide applications in development of CAR T-cell therapy, cancer vaccines and other advanced immunotherapies.

Market key trends:

One of the key trends fueling the growth of immune cell engineering market is increasing adoption of CAR T-cell therapy and other advanced cell therapies. CAR T-cell therapy involves genetically engineering T cells taken from patients to express antigen-specific receptors called chimeric antigen receptors (CARs). CAR T-cell therapy has shown promising results in treatment of cancers like leukemia and lymphoma. Growing success of CAR T-cell therapy is driving considerable research to develop next generation CAR T-cells with enhanced efficacy and safety. Metabolic engineering of immune cells is another emerging trend to optimize immune cell therapies. Techniques like glycolytic reprogramming are being explored to improve effector functions and persistence of immune cells like CAR T-cells in host tissues.
