Global Lentiviral Vectors Market, By Product Type (1st-generation, 2nd-generation, and 3rd-generation), By Indication (HIV, β-thalassemia, X-linked Adrenoleukodystrophy, Metachromatic Leukodystrophy, and Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome), By End User (Hospitals, Clinics, and Research Institutes), and By Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa), is estimated to be valued at US$ 176.9 million in 2020 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 18.3% over the forecast period (2020-2027), as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Increasing technological advancements by market players is expected to boost the global lentiviral vectors market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in April 2018, Takara Bio USA, Inc. developed a rapid test for the measurement of recombinant lentivirus titers using a smartphone.
Similarly, in October 2018, Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) announced that the researchers of the university developed a method to increase the released lentiviral particles produced by host cells, to facilitate the use of the lentiviral vectors for introducing foreign genes into cells.
Global Lentiviral Vectors Market – Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically affected clinical trials. Many trials have paused enrollment and researchers are facing multiple challenges associated with setting up remote visits, performing laboratory, and other study assessments.
According to a survey conducted by Medidata Solutions, Inc. (an American technology company, which develops and markets software as a service for clinical trials), on April 23, 2020, 63% of survey respondents reported that they stopped recruiting new patients for ongoing clinical trials and 43% of the respondents postponed their studies. Moreover, on March 25, 2020, Reuters, an international news organization, reported that major market players such as Pfizer Inc, Eli Lilly and Company, and Bristol Myers Squibb have delayed patient recruitment in new and ongoing global trials due to the coronavirus outbreak.
However, many research institutes are focusing on development of vaccine for COVID-19 using various gene therapies, which include lentiviral vectors. For instance, Shenzhen Geno-Immune Medical Institute initiated a phase 1 clinical trial on February 15, 2020, to assess the safety and immunity of a Covid-19 coronavirus artificial antigen presenting cell vaccine using efficient lentiviral vectors system.
