Novel T-Cell Therapy Market Overview
The novel T-cell therapy market is estimated to be worth $25 million in 2021 and is expected to grow at CAGR of 76% during the forecast period. In recent years, adoptive T-cell therapy (ACT) has emerged as a potent and viable type of therapeutic intervention, which is applicable to a variety of oncological and non-oncological indications. Owing to its obvious benefits, which include high target specificity, customization potential and the ability to generate immunological memory, this form of therapy has garnered significant attention among drug developers, investors and consumers, alike. In fact, several of the initial variants of T-cell based pharmacological interventions, namely those based on chimeric antigen receptors (CARs), and antigen sensitized T-cell receptors (TCRs), are already approved and available in the market. Lately, several novel types of T-cell therapies, such as γδ T-cells, Tregs, activated T-cells, virus-driven T-cells and T-cell vaccines, have demonstrated therapeutic proof-of-concept and shown promise in the early stages of clinical research, as well. Much like their predecessors, these experimental treatment paradigms are also capable of selectively eradicating diseased cells from the body and are characterized by favorable side effect profiles. At present, the novel T-cell immunotherapies pipeline features over 200 product candidates and is anticipated to grow in the foreseen future. Further, more than 35 such therapies, including Tab-cel® (Atara Biotherapeutics), CLBS03 (Caladrius Biosciences), TVI-Brain-1 (TVAX Biomedical), Viralym-M (AlloVir) and ALS001 (Coya Therapeutics), are already being evaluated in the advanced stages of development.
So far, more than 105 academic / research institutes, as well as over 50 industry players, across the world, have made notable contributions to this upcoming segment of the T-cell therapy market. Moreover, multiple collaborations have been inked between both industry and non-industry players in order to advance the development of various pipeline candidates, over the past decade alone. It is also worth highlighting that, in the last five years, capital investments worth over USD 4 billion were made by VC firms / other strategic investors with interest in the healthcare domain. Driven by promising clinical trial data and lucrative funding, this niche, but emerging market, is poised to witness healthy market growth during the forecast period.
