Increasing Prevalence of Rare Genetic Disorders to Drive Growth

The National Organization for Rare Diseases (NORD) estimated that annually, the cases of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) are 1 in 10,000 live births in the U.S. It proves that the increasing prevalence of rare genetic disorders among the masses is a major contributor to the gene therapy market growth. Apart from that, the rising technological advancements to develop new gene therapies for treating such diseases would propel growth. As per Globocan and the World Health Organization (WHO), the total prevalence of cancer worldwide is 43 million in five years. Such therapies are very beneficial for treating different cancer types. However, the expensive nature of this therapy may obstruct the market growth in the forthcoming years.
