Treg Therapy Market Overview
The Treg therapy market size is estimated to be worth $5 million in 2023 and is expected to grow at CAGR of 44% during the forecast period. Given the various benefits offered, including high target specificity, customization potential and ability to generate immunological memory, regulatory T cells (Treg) therapies have garnered significant attention among key industry stakeholders for the treatment of various oncological and non-oncological disease indications. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has estimated that, by 2030, over 22 million individuals are likely to be diagnosed with some form of cancer in the US alone. As a result of the growing patient population affected by this disease, there is a rise in the demand for effective treatment modalities. The conventional approaches, such as chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy, employed for the treatment of oncological indication(s) are considered to be inadequate, specifically for late-stage cancers. Therefore, in recent years, the focus of the research community has shifted towards the development of novel treatment modalities, such as Treg cell therapies, that exhibit high efficacy. The Tregs are a mature subpopulation of regulatory T cells that play a critical role in mediating immunological tolerance to self-antigens and suppress immune responses that are harmful to the host, thereby, enabling a balance to homeostasis. In recent years, Treg based therapies have become a research hotspot in the field of immunotherapy due to their ability to prevent / delay graft rejection and control autoimmune responses generated post adoptive transfer in vivo.
Over time, more than 90 pharmaceutical companies and academic / research institutes have undertaken various initiatives to develop effective Treg cell therapies against multiple target indications. At present, the pipeline features close to 95 product candidates, and this number is anticipated to grow further in the foreseen future. Of the total candidates, more than 15 Treg therapies, including ALS001 (Coya Therapeutics), CLBS03 (Caladrius Biosciences), ILT-101 (ILTOO Pharma), NKTR-358 (Eli Lilly) and RGI-2001 (REGiMMUNE), are currently being evaluated in advanced stages of development. The growing interest of pharmaceutical stakeholders in Treg therapy market is also reflected from the recent rise in clinical trials being registered for such candidates. 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. It is also worth highlighting that, in the last five years, capital investments worth around USD 3 billion have been made by strategic investors in Treg therapy market. We believe that this niche, but upcoming market, is poised to witness a healthy pace market growth during the forecast period, with pioneers in the field likely to benefit from the first-to-market advantage.
