The viral and non-viral vector manufacturing market is anticipated to grow at an annualized rate of over 20%, claims Roots Analysis

Published: October 2019

The recent surge in interest in genetically-modified therapies has resulted in a steep rise in demand for different vectors for fundamental and pharmacological research, opening up opportunities for companies with expertise in targeted gene delivery

Roots Analysis has announced the addition of Viral Vector Manufacturing Market report to its list of offerings. 

Currently, biopharmaceutical developers are plagued by high development costs, complex production protocols and the need for specialized equipment, in order to ensure the safety and quality of complex biological interventions, such as cell and gene therapies. Consequently, a number of innovator companies have demonstrated a preference for outsourcing vector manufacturing, a key aspect of advanced, genetically-modified product development, to contract service providers.

Key Market Insights

The market is fragmented, with over 180 industry players and non-industry players
Over 50% of industry players are large or mid-sized firms. In recent years, the growing demand for vectors has spurred the establishment of several start-ups, as well. Further, more than 80 non-industry players, including universities, research institutes and hospitals, are also currently involved in producing viral vectors or plasmid DNA for use in genetically modified therapies 

The demand for vectors for research / clinical use is presently more than that for commercial applications
Approximately 80% of industry stakeholders presently claim to manufacture vectors at the laboratory and / or clinical scale. However, some firms (around 40, as per our research) have developed / are developing commercial scale capacity for the production of viral vectors or plasmid DNA. 

The US and EU have emerged as major vector manufacturing hubs
High volume of active clinical studies, requiring vectors, being conducted in these regions makes the US and EU the major vector manufacturing hubs. Approximately 50% of the vector manufacturing facilities are located in North America. This is followed by the EU, where approximately 45% of the world’s vector manufacturing facilities are located.

The current installed vector manufacturing capacity in the world is estimated to be over 60,000 L 
The major share (70%) of the global vector manufacturing capacity belongs to companies that are manufacturing vectors at both clinical and commercial scales. Across the major global regions, 50% of the total installed vector manufacturing capacity is in the US. This can be attributed to the large number of small-sized and mid-sized companies that are presently situated in this region.

Around 140 partnerships were inked during the last three years
The maximum number of deals (37) were reported in 2016, followed by 27 partnerships established in 2018. Around 30% of the deals were related to the manufacturing of vectors across different scales of operation; this was followed by technology licensing agreements (23%).

90% of the market share is captured by viral vectors intended for use in oncological disorders 
Driven by the rapidly evolving pipeline of genetically modified therapies, including T-cell therapies and vector-based vaccines, and the increasing adoption of advanced production technologies, the vector manufacturing market is projected to grow at an accelerated pace. Specifically, revenues generated from the sales of lentiviral vectors currently represent the largest share of the market, followed by retroviral vectors.
