[Research Report] The gene editing market size is projected to grow from US$ 6,542.95 million in 2022 to US$ 23,902.34 million by 2030; it is estimated to record a CAGR of 17.6% during 2022–2030.

Market Insights and Analyst View:

Gene editing, also called genome editing, is a technique for modifying an organism's DNA using a variety of methods. Conditions such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell disease, cancer, and others can be treated and prevented through gene editing. The growth of the gene editing market is anticipated to be fueled by rising government funding, an increase in the number of genomics projects, and growing implementation of genome editing technology.

Growth Drivers:

The increasing prevalence of cancer has created a burden on healthcare systems across the world. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cancer is one of the biggest causes of death worldwide, with ~10 million deaths in 2020. According to the American Cancer Society, ~1,898,160 new cancer cases and 608,570 cancer deaths occurred in the US in 2021. Nearly 10% to 20% of all cancers are related to gene mutations that are inherited or passed down through the family. Approximately 5–10% of cancers diagnosed in the US are associated with hereditary cancer syndromes. In the US, ~1,958,310 new cancer cases and 609,820 cancer deaths are anticipated to occur in 2023. Additionally, as per the International Agency for Research on Cancer, new cancer incidences were projected to reach 30.2 million by 2040. According to the study titled "Spotlight on Gene Therapy in China," published in July 2020, over 57 million people suffer from genetic diseases in the country, and ~4 million new cancer cases are recorded per year.

The prevalence of genetic diseases is rising across the world and impacting the health of people at a severe level. Most genetic diseases are rare and are developed due to mutations in people's genetic makeup. According to the University of Sheffield research, ~300 million people are living with genetic diseases around the world. In 2022, a report by MJH Life Sciences (US) estimated that 300,000 newborns worldwide are born with sickle cell disease (SCD) every year, accounting for ∼5% of the global population. According to a study on sickle cell disease published in the National Library of Medicine, 400,000 newborns are expected to have sickle cell disease by 2050.

As per the study titled "Sickle Cell Disease," published in August 2023, 1 in 500 African Americans is affected by SCD. In June 2020, as per Novartis AG (Switzerland) report, ∼15,000 individuals were suffering from SCD in the UK, and 270 newborns are diagnosed with the condition every year. In addition, the disease is most prevalent in emerging nations such as India. Among India's tribal communities, ∼18 million people are affected by sickle cell trait (SCT), and 1.4 million people are suffering from SCD.

Many cancer biology investigations are now using clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) as a standard approach. This technology has also been utilized to enhance the effectiveness and safety profiles of cancer immunotherapy, such as CAR-T cell therapies.

The CRISPR/Cas9 system has been demonstrated to be efficient in treating metastatic tumors, which is a major step toward discovering a cancer cure. The CRISPR-LNP system contains a messenger RNA that encodes for the Cas9 CRISPR enzyme, which is a molecular scissor that cuts the DNA of cells.

Cutting-edge gene editing techniques hold immense promise for tackling dreadful diseases such as SCD. Advancements in technologies such as CRISPR-Cas9 have paved the way for precise and efficient gene editing, allowing the possibility of correcting genetic mutations and modifying disease-causing genes. Thus, the increasing prevalence of cancer and other genetic disorders is expected to boost the gene editing market growth during the forecast period.
