Given the potential of gene therapies in targeting the underlying cause of a disease at cellular level, the demand for such therapies has increased considerably over the past few years. Currently, more than 285 gene therapies are being evaluated in different phases of clinical development. Further, various gene therapy developers have raised more than USD 10 billion capital during the year 2021. With the growing interest in such therapies, the demand for novel delivery vectors has also increased. Among various gene delivery vectors available, adeno-associated viral vectors have emerged as one of the most efficient viral vectors. Till now, the USFDA has approved two adeno-associated viral vectors based drugs, LUXTURNA® and ZOLGENSMA®.
In order to cater to the demand, close to 100 players, across the globe, have emerged for the development and manufacturing of adeno-associated viral vectors. In fact, a number of these companies also offer advanced technology platforms, enabling the processing of adeno-associated viral (AAV) vectors and related therapies across different scales of operation. Various industry and non-industry players are actively engaged in research and development of novel gene delivery technologies, which are safe and effective.
