Global Natural Killer Cells Therapeutics Market to Reach US$ 5.1 Billion by 2027, Impelled by Growing Prevalence of Chronic Diseases

Published on May 30, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Natural Killer Cells Therapeutics Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global natural killer cells therapeutics market size reached US$ 2.1 Billion in 2021.  Natural killer (NK) cells therapeutics are large granular lymphocytes that target multiple pathogenic antigens and reduce the risk of cytokine storms. They contain special proteins, such as proteases and perforin known as granzymes, that act as an essential component of the innate immune system and generate an immune response against malignancies and viral infections. At present, these therapies are gaining traction across the globe as professionals are developing several strategies such as ex vivo pre-conditioning with cytokines or small molecular drugs to improve the efficacy of NK cells therapeutics.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Natural Killer Cells Therapeutics Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the growing prevalence of chronic diseases, such as cancer, infectious diseases, and liver disorders. This can be attributed to unhealthy dietary patterns, lack of physical activities, and the increasing number of individuals consuming alcohol and tobacco products. In addition, the rising geriatric population that is more susceptible to cancer is contributing to the market growth. Besides this, professionals are conducting clinical studies that focus on tumor-targeted antibody strategies to enhance the therapeutic benefit of NK-cell-based therapy while minimizing risks and toxicities. This, coupled with the introduction of novel methods and technologies that boost the immune response through allogeneic, off-the-shelf NK cell-based therapies, represents another major growth-inducing factor. Moreover, the rising product adoption to treat gastrointestinal diseases is further propelling the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 5.1 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 15.65% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
