Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR-T) Cell Therapy – Market Opportunity, Pipeline & Competitive Intelligence 2020


Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy has generated a great amount of interest and have encouraged investors to support development in the field of adoptive cellular immunotherapy. Over the past couple of years, there has been rapid progress in the field. Researchers are refining the safety and efficacy profiles of CAR T cells with new concepts and technologies. These will be therapies that will address current challenges through mechanisms of superior efficacy, safety and delivery.

Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR-T) Cell Therapy has the potential to be a driver of growth through the introduction of new technologies and  mechanisms that solve current clinical and commercial  challenges, which ultimately can expand FDA approved  cell therapies. With cell and gene therapies emerging as innovative treatment options for many cancers and other rare diseases, there are currently thousands of cell and gene therapies in the development and commercialization pipeline. As a result, the FDA is preparing for the wave of experimental therapies, and by 2025, the FDA may approve 10 to 20 new cell and gene therapy products a year.
CAR-T Marketed Therapies Approval
CAR-T Marketed Therapies

“In the big picture, I think that this technology is a game changer. For the first time, we are seeing a powerful immune technology dramatically impact myeloma, even in [patients with] relapsed or refractory disease. This could lead at some point to a cure or give us clues to lead us in that direction.”

CAR-T Therapy Key Summary

  • Currently, there are five approved CAR-T cell therapies, namely KYMRIAH® (Novartis), YESCARTA® (Gilead Sciences), TECARTUS ™ (Gilead Sciences) and BREYANZI® (Bristol Myers Squibb / Juno Therapeutics) and ABECMA (Bristol Myers Squibb).
  • Haematological Malignancy market in 2019 was ~ based on the Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (<25 y.o.) was 0.7 billion and with the new indications in liquid tumors are currently under clinical development and could expand the market to an estimated $6.2 bn by 2030.
  • CD19 holds 100% market share in haematological malignancies in 2020. As BCMA-based CAR-T therapies enter the market beginning from 2021, the market share is expected to split to 72% (CD19)/ 28% (BCMA) by 2030
  • Currently, in 2021, Gilead holds the major market share of around 60% with its two products Yescarta and Tecartus. In 2030, BMS with its therapies, namely Breyanzi and Abecma, is expected to surpass Gilead’s sales and become the leader in the CAR-T therapy space.
Kymriah Forecast 2030
Kymriah Forecast 2030
  • Solid Tumors to Drive Market Expansion for Cellular Therapies
  • Around 76 Companies Collaborations in CAR-T Space have been observed in the past 8 years. CAR-T companies are on the rise, supported by growing investment flowing into CAR-T research, landmark approvals of CAR-T cell therapies by the U.S. FDA (Kymriah, Yescarta, Breyanzi, Tecartus and Abecma), and major collaborations within the CAR-T space.
  • There has been a total of $ 10 billion investment deals that have been seen in the CAR-T space for the past 8 years. The year 2018 saw the highest investment compared to other years of approximately USD 2.8 billion.

CAR-T Collaborations & Investments 2030

  • ~52 University & Companies Collaborations in CAR-T Space have been observed in the past 11 year
  • ~78 Acquisition Deals were observed in CAR-T Space have been observed from 2013 to 2020
  • Manufacturing Facilities for the Development of CAR-T cells have increased with approval of new CAR-T therapies as well as the expansion of the sites for the existing ones. For instance
    • Commercial manufacturing for Kymriah takes place at five sites globally including at the Morris Plains, New Jersey facility, where the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has also approved a further increase in manufacturing capacity in Dec, 2020. In 2020, Novartis made significant progress in expanding our global manufacturing capacity with a 70% increase compared to 2019 year.
    • Gilead purchased a new building in Santa Monica, California that were formerly owned by the Japanese pharma Astellas
    • BMS plans to manufacture Breyanzi for each individual patient at its state-of-the-art cellular immunotherapy manufacturing facilities, initially in Bothell, Washington and then also expanding to later manufacture it in Summit, New Jersey to support clinical and commercial capacity and accommodate patient geographic spread.
  • Allogeneic approaches could provide a workaround for lengthy manufacturing times. The pre-dominant leaders in allogeneic CAR-T space are Cellectis, Servier, Allogene, Autolus and Precision Therapeutics which have entered into the clinical stages. Allogene, Servier, and Cellectistechnology uses a healthy donor’s T-cells and engineers them to target the CD19 antigen and delivers those cells to the patient.
  • There are ~444 products in the Pre-clinical stage of development, representing 64% of the total share of the developing CAR-T landscape

CAR-T Competitive landscape 2030

  • The clinical staged CAR-Ts are dominated by biotech companies headquartered in China with the Chinese companies holding the top ten positions. They represent ~40% of all the pipeline CAR-Ts in clinical stages.
  • There are ~166 Companies presently developing CAR-T with CD19 & BCMA, together forming 43.8% share in the field of CAR T-cells therapy.
  • There are ~28 key next generation technologies based CAR-T therapies in the Clinical Stage of development in addition to the conventional CAR T-cell technologies
  • Bellicum Pharmaceuticals is a leading company with two interesting Safety Switch technologies –An emergency “kill” switch and Default state to off switch.
