Adeno-Associated Viral Vector market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of more than 10% by 2035

Given their low immunogenicity, diversified targets and ability to offer higher biosafety, the adeno-associated viral vectors are actively being evaluated for the development of various therapies for the treatment of chronic diseases and infections

Roots Analysis has announced the addition of “Adeno-Associated Viral Vector Market, 2022-2035” report to its list of offerings.  

Owing to their unique biology, simple structure and lack of disease correlation, the adeno-associated viral vectors have garnered significant interest within the medical community. In fact, various adeno viral vector based therapies have been developed for the treatment of multiple indications, including retinitis pigmentosa, cystic fibrosis and Duchenne muscular dystrophy. As a result, the demand for such vectors have increased tremendously, thereby creating lucrative opportunities for the players engaged in the adeno-associated viral vector market.

Considering the prevalent trends and projected opportunity associated with the overall adeno-associated viral vector / AAV vector domain, we believe that the market is anticipated to witness substantial growth in the foreseen future.
