The APAC gene therapy market was moderately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic because of the lockdowns, movement restrictions, and halt of clinical trials. But, as the clinical trials were halted briefly, the market recovered quickly.

Ex-vivo and in-vivo are the bifurcations within the type segment of the APAC gene therapy market. Of these, in-vivo was the larger category in 2020 because this type of gene therapy is more effective and easier to administer.

The categories of the APAC gene therapy market on the basis of vector type are adenovirus, herpes simplex virus (HSV), non-viral, and lentivirus. The higher efficacy of adenoviral vectors will propel the adenovirus category at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The APAC gene therapy market, based on end user, is categorized into academic institutes and research centers and pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. Among these, in 2020, the market was dominated by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, as they are receiving heavy funding, conducting numerous clinical trials, and bringing about advancements in their products.
