Discovered less than two decades ago, RNAi has made its presence felt in all spheres of the pharmaceutical industry. RNAi is a natural post-transcriptional process of gene silencing involving short strands of nucleic acids. It is a regulatory process that cells utilise to silence and/or inhibit gene expression through the destruction of specific mRNA molecules. One of the major advantages of RNAi is that it enables sequence specific knockdown of a target gene. Indications, such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), hepatitis C and various forms of cancer,which are hard to address with the available therapies, are being considered as potential areas that can benefit from RNAi based therapeutics.
After years of research tracing back to the 1990s, a number of novel RNAi therapeutics have finally reached a point of maturity. These promising therapeutic approaches are set to be made commercially available in the near future. Innovative research, encouraging clinical trial results and growing pipelines directed towards a variety of molecular targets across different therapeutic areas have emerged as essential growth drivers of the market. The promise has been backed by several venture capitalists and strategic investors. It is also important to highlight that partnerships amongst various stakeholders in this market have been common. Such collaborations have actively fuelled growth in the market by providing a common platform for both industry and academic research.
Several start-ups / university spin-offs have been notable flagbearers and are expected to sustain the research momentum in the coming years. The commercial success, to a certain extent, is hinged upon uncovering effective delivery routes and developing sophisticated delivery carriers for the molecules. Despite this and other associated challenges, we expect the market to make a huge leap over the coming decade.
The ‘RNAi Therapeutics Market, 2015-2030' report provides a comprehensive analysis of the current market landscape and future outlook of the growing pipeline of RNAi therapeutics. Overall, the RNAi therapeutics market has been one of the more actively evolving markets in the past few years. However, with no marketed products till date, the market is still in its infancy.
RNAi therapeutics is characterised by a robust and opportunistic pipeline of products targeting several therapeutic areas such as oncology, genetic disorders and infectious diseases. The market has seen several collaborations between industry players aimed at the clinical and commercial development of promising candidates. Some late stage products that have emerged out of such collaborations include Patisiran/ALN-TTR02 (Alnylam Pharmaceuticals and Genzyme; based on LNP delivery platform developed by Arbutus Biopharma), Revusiran/ALN-TTRsc (Alnylam Pharmaceuticals and Genzyme; based on Alnylam's proprietary GalNAc siRNA conjugate platform), QPI-1002 (Quark Pharmaceuticals and Novartis; based on AtuRNAi platform developed by Silence Therapeutics) and PF-655 (Quark Pharmaceuticals and Pfizer; based on AtuRNAi platform developed by Silence Therapeutics). Encouraging clinical results have accelerated the progress and these therapies have emerged as one of the most effective ways of developing treatments for undruggable targets.
One of the key objectives of this study is to review and quantify the opportunities laid by the innovative programs of both small and big pharma firms. The unexploited and promising nature of this market supports the hopes pinned on multiple start-ups by several strategic investors and venture capital firms. We have presented our opinions in this report by analysing:
The study provides an estimate of the short-midterm and long term market forecast for the period 2015 - 2030. The research, analysis and insights presented in this report include potential sales of several molecules in late (phase III, II/III) and intermediate (phase II) phases of development.
With most products still in the early stage of development, we have provided three market forecast scenarios to add robustness to our model. The conservative, base and optimistic scenarios represent three different tracks of industry evolution. All actual figures have been sourced and analysed from publicly available information. The figures mentioned in this report are in USD, unless otherwise specified.
Most of the data presented in this report has been gathered via secondary research. For all our projects, we also conduct interviews with experts in the area (academia, industry, medical practice and other associations) to solicit their opinions on emerging trends in the market. This is primarily useful for us to draw out our own opinion on how the market will evolve across different regions and technology segments. Where possible, the available data has been checked for accuracy from multiple sources of information.
