Gene Therapy Market Overview 

The Gene Therapy Market Analysis size is anticipated to grow at a 40.7% CAGR between 2019-2024, as per the recent Market Research Future (MRFR) report. Gene therapy, simply put, is an experimental method that uses genes for treating or preventing a disease. It is likely to allow doctors in the future to treat a disorder by inserting genes into the cells of a patient rather than using medications or surgery. Gene therapy is widely used for eliminating cancerous cells, preventing cardiovascular diseases, eliminating infectious pathogens, and blocking neurological disorders.

Gene therapy uses parts of the DNA, generally the gene, to prevent or treat a disease. The DNA is chosen carefully for correcting the effects of mutated genes, which is causing the disease. It is a promising treatment for genetic diseases such as cystic fibrosis and muscular dystrophy. It is of two types- germline gene therapy and somatic gene therapy.

Numerous factors are adding to the global gene therapy market growth. These factors, according to the recent MRFR report, include the demand for innovative medicines, rising prevalence of target
disease, increasing investments by key players, and robust product pipeline. High prevalence of cancer, availability of reimbursement, and increasing government initiatives are also adding to the global gene therapy market growth.

On the contrary, stringent regulatory policies, side effects, and the high price of product development are factors that may limit the global gene therapy market growth over the forecast period.
