Discover how your business can use primary market research to develop a deeper understanding of cell and gene therapies and unlock their full potential for different use cases.
Cell and gene therapy (CGT) is an innovative, exciting segment in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry. It has the potential to transform how we cure serious diseases, such as cancer and genetic disorders, by targeting illness at a molecular level, looking to replace damaged or dysfunctional molecules.
The speed at which scientific breakthroughs are happening in the field are spurred not only by CGT’s potential to save lives but also their economic potential. This Roland Berger study reports that the market is projected to grow rapidly, reaching sales forecasts of EUR 27.9 billion by 2026.
With accelerated movement in the space, companies are eager to unlock the potential of CGTs. We explore how you can leverage primary market research to tap into this market by discussing four use cases we’ve supported customers with:
Given its newness and promise, businesses interested in entering the CGT market need to develop a better understanding of the field to identify opportunities for growth.
A management consultancy conducting a market opportunity assessment on behalf of their pharmaceutical client needed to understand the current landscape of genome editing technology, including understanding current unmet needs as well as the CGT value chain.
They needed to engage with senior CMC (chemistry, manufacturing, and controls) Directors and BD&L (business development and licensing) Managers.
To gain this knowledge, we connected the customer with experts including:
The customer used the insights gained via the experts our AI sourced for them to develop a market opportunity assessment including fresh perspectives and strategic recommendations on what’s in research and development today, upcoming technologies, how genome editing technologies are licensed, and how partnership deals are structured and valued.
This enabled their pharma client to develop an in-depth understanding of the genome editing technology landscape to support their strategic decision-making for this project.
With scientific breakthroughs occurring rapidly, competition is fierce when it comes to CGT product development. Engaging experts with on the ground knowledge is an effective way of staying ahead.
A professional services firm conducting a study on a potential new cell therapy product for their end client asked us to connect them with nurses, lab directors, and pharmacy directors to help inform their findings and recommendations.

Manufacturing CGTs is one of the biggest challenges in the field, with companies having to make multiple decisions, such as deciding if they should keep manufacturing in-house or outsource.
A life sciences consultancy was conducting a study on supply and demand for cell therapy manufacturing on behalf of their client and needed to gain insights from industry experts to understand how businesses choose outsourcing partners for cell therapy manufacturing.
The experts needed to:
We connected the customer with relevant subject matter experts, enabling them to provide their end client with actionable recommendations.
The customer engaged with experts such as:
The unique development challenges for CGTs require companies to explore and create new approaches to the drug-development process to get an edge on their competitors. By engaging with experts on the front line, companies can get relevant, up-to-date insights to inform their strategic decision-making.
A strategy consulting firm supporting a pharmaceutical client on a market research project needed to understand how viral vectors and non-viral vectors are used in certain cell or gene therapies. As such, they asked us to find and facilitate qualitative interviews with CMC and R&D experts.
Following the expert engagements, the customer gained the insights they needed to develop the recommendations included in the R&D strategy they prepared for the end client.
The specialists they conducted qualitative interviews with included:
