US Cell Gene Therapy Market - Outlook and Forecast 2023-2028

Market Overview

The US cell and gene therapy market had a value of $3.22 billion in 2022, and it is projected to reach $25.58 billion by 2028, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 41.25% during the study period.

Cell and gene therapies are advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs) that are developed based on genes, tissues, and cells. The introduction of many new ATMPs in recent years, particularly cell and gene therapies, has significantly changed the treatment landscape for complex and challenging diseases such as cancer and genetic disorders. This growth in the cell and gene therapy market has led to several high-profile mergers and acquisitions, including bluebird bio/BioMarin, Bristol-Myers Squibb/Celgene/Juno Therapeutics, Gilead Sciences/Kite, Novartis/AveXis, CDMO CELLforCURE, Roche/Spark Therapeutics, and Smith & Nephew/Osiris Therapeutics. It is projected that over 20 cell therapy launches and up to 31 gene therapy launches, including more than 29 Adeno-associated viruses (AAV) therapies, will be approved by 2024.

Among all the commercial cell and gene therapies, Zolgensma is the first and only product to achieve blockbuster status. Zolgensma generated $1.37 billion in revenue in 2022 and is expected to reach approximately $5.00 billion by 2026.

Drug developers are focusing on the development and commercialization of CAR-T cell-based gene therapies. Globally, there are over 1,000 clinical trials underway for CAR T-cell therapies, with at least 500 trials focused on cancer alone. Currently available commercial CAR-T therapies in the market include Kymriah (Novartis), Yescarta (Gilead Sciences), Tecartus (Gilead Sciences), Breyanzi (Bristol Myers Squibb), Abecma (Bristol Myers Squibb), and Carvykti (Janssen Biotech / Legend Biotech).

In 2022, the US had the fastest-growing market share in North America. The growth of the market is driven by an increasing target patient population, support from regulatory bodies, and improved access to healthcare due to a well-established healthcare infrastructure.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved over twenty cell and gene therapy drugs. However, there is a pipeline of approximately 365 investigational therapies, with more than half of them in Phase 2 clinical trials. Gene therapies targeting oncology and rare diseases continue to be the top areas of focus from preclinical stages through pre-registration.

There are around 1,604 clinical trials investigating various cell and gene therapies in the US. This increase can be attributed to the rise in funding for cell and gene therapy. Industry-sponsored trials continue to dominate, accounting for 51.81% of the total.

In the United States, the gene therapy segment was valued at $2.48 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 46.22% between 2022 and 2028. During the forecast period, the gene therapy segment is expected to witness faster growth compared to the cell therapy segment among the product segmentation. Cell and gene therapy has emerged as a revolutionary form of medicine, showing promising results in the treatment of various cancers and rare genetic disorders. The market already boasts more than five major commercialized cell therapies. Furthermore, the recent approval by the FDA of Tecartus for patients with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), a rare cancer of white blood cells, further contributes to the advancements in this field.

In the United States, the hospital segment was valued at $1.61 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 42.96% between 2022 and 2028. Among the end-user segmentation, hospitals are expected to dominate the market. However, cancer care centers are anticipated to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. Given that hospitals are typically the first point of care for any medical condition, and considering the advanced equipment and skilled professionals required for cell and gene therapies, most patients prefer hospitals over other clinics or centers for these treatments.

In terms of application segmentation, the oncology segment was valued at $1.30 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 46.39% from 2022 to 2028. During the study period, oncology is expected to dominate the market. Vendors have introduced multiple cell and gene therapies for the treatment of cancer, including Kymriah, Yescarta, and Tecartus, which have played significant roles in the US market. The approval of these therapies has made a substantial impact on oncology treatments, leading patients to shift from traditional chemotherapy to more personalized targeted treatments in the country.
