Read Report Overview:

High Cost of Gene Delivery Systems is a Key Inhibitor for the Global Gene Delivery System Market

The cost of gene delivery system is significantly high, hence it is not affordable to all income groups. Additionally, lack of reimbursement in developing and under developed countries is likely to restrain the market. For instance, the cost of Spinraza, marketed by Biogen and used for the treatment of spinal muscular atrophy, is around US$ 750,000 per patient in the first year and US$ 375,000 annually thereafter. The cost of Cinryze, marketed by Viropharma used for the treatment of hereditary angioedema, is more than US$ 417,000 per patient per year. Moreover, rise in incidence of rare diseases increases the demand for treatment options. This, in turn, increases the cost of treatment due to less availability. Gene delivery targets only the affected region. Hence, stringent regulations lead to drug recalls. Therefore, gene delivery drugs are not sold over-the-counter.

Combined Hybrid Delivery System Segment to Lose Market Share

The report offers detailed segmentation of the global gene delivery system market based on delivery system, application, and route of administration. The delivery system is segmented into viral gene delivery system, non-viral gene delivery system, and combined hybrid delivery system. The combined hybrid delivery system segment is expected to lose market share during the forecast period primarily due to increase in demand for viral gene delivery system. Rise in incidence of genetic disorders with a different pattern of inheritance increases demand for gene delivery systems worldwide. Increase in application of viral gene delivery for the treatment of several chronic diseases such as cancer fuels the segment. The non-viral gene delivery system segment is likely to maintain market share during the forecast period. Several advantages of non-viral vectors over viral vectors such as lack of immunogenicity, low toxicity, and potential for tissue specificity drive the segment.

Behavioral therapy is an umbrella term for the various types of therapies aimed at treating mental disorders. Behavioral therapy lays emphasis on creating consciousness in the mind of an individual about how changes in his/her behavior can bring about changes in feelings. The therapy focuses on the eradication of maladaptive and unwanted behavior via engagement in positive reinforcing activities.

Obtain Report Details:

As the incidence of behavioral issues and mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, phobias, addictions, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) augments across the world, the global market for behavioral therapy is gaining significant impetus. Depression has surfaced as a key culprit necessitating the adoption of behavioral therapy. The changing work culture over the world has been triggering stress, anxiety, and depression. According to the findings of the U.S. National Institute of Mental Health, anxiety disorders form the most common type of mental illness in the U.S., affecting around 18% of the population or 40 million adults aged 18 and older.

These disorders not only affect the mental health of an individual, but also lead to physical health conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), chronic pain, eating disorders, sleep disorders, fibromyalgia, bipolar disorder, headaches, and substance abuse, to name a few. Therefore, the co-occurrence of these conditions will promote more demand for behavioral therapy over the globe.
