Vector Purification Market Overview

The vector purification market is estimated to be worth $155 million in 2020 and is expected to grow at compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21% during the forecast period. Since the approval and launch of cell and gene therapy products, such as Zolgensma® (2019), ZYNTEGLO™ (2019), Luxturna® (2017), KYMRIAH® (2017) and YESCARTA® (2017), there has been a significant increase in demand for viral vectors. Experts believe that the number of such therapies is likely to double over the next couple of years. It is also worth mentioning that this particular field of medical research received close to USD 10 billion in funding in 2019. Currently, over 1,000 cell and gene therapy-related clinical trials are being conducted, worldwide. Genetic manipulation is a basic requirement of cell and gene therapy development, and, as a result, gene delivery vectors are considered to be of utmost importance in viral vector purification market. So far, viral vectors (such as those based on adeno-associated viruses (AAV), adenoviruses, lentivirus, retroviruses and other viruses) have been shown to be the most versatile gene delivery tools available, having demonstrated high transfection efficiencies in both preclinical and clinical settings. Further, taking into account the therapeutic efficacy and low side effects profiles of cell and gene therapies, the demand for such interventions is anticipated to grow at a rapid pace, resulting in a proportional increase in need for appropriate vector systems, as well. However, viral vector development and manufacturing is a complex and cost intensive process. One of the primary concerns associated with viral vector production is related to yield; in fact, a singular batch run is estimated to incur losses of up to 70% during the purification step alone.  

This image highlights the context of Virus Purification Products Market report. The field of viral vectors is driven by the surge in demand for various genetically modified therapies; owing to the complexities associated with their production, several players seek innovative products for effective downstream purification process This image provides list of Viral Vector Purification Products. Over 100 viral vector purification products, involving the use of a variety of downstream processing techniques, have been developed to improve virus recovery and facilitate effective removal of contaminants / impurities This image presents current market landscape of Viral Vector Purification Products. Most of the available virus purification products have been designed for small / clinical scale use, catering to specific requirements of different types of vectors; North America is a hub of development of such solutions

A number of techniques are presently used for viral vector purification. Over the years, size-based viral purification strategies, such as density-gradient ultracentrifugation, ultrafiltration, precipitation and size-exclusion chromatography (SEC), have become part of the accepted industry standard. However, recently, stakeholders have begun relying more on affinity chromatography-based purification regimens, given its robustness and high selectivity. Presently, several companies claim to offer a diverse range of virus purification solutions, including, filter plates, prepacked chromatography columns and resins, and consolidated kits, for viral vector (virus) purification. As indicated earlier, downstream processing of viral vector products is challenging. Existing separation and purification techniques are not efficient when it comes to purifying viral vectors at large scales. Moreover, these techniques are often unable to separate complete viruses from empty capsids, thereby, compromising product recovery. Therefore, it has become essential for stakeholders to develop innovative ways to optimize the purification process, in order to further improve virus recovery and facilitate effective removal of contaminants / impurities. Currently, the viral vector purification products market is driven by abovementioned surge in demand for viral vectors. In this context, it is worth mentioning that there are several virus based vaccines under development against the novel SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus strain. In fact, according to the WHO, there are over 20 viral vaccines currently being investigated against the novel coronavirus. Developing the means to better purify viruses is, therefore, likely to significantly impact viable vaccine yield. The current crisis is definitely going to have a strong impact on the vector purification market and the market is likely to witness substantial market growth during the forecast period.
