Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs) Consulting Market Report 2027

Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs) Consulting Market Report 2027

The global ATMPs Consulting Market is expected to witness a healthy and a double-digit growth rate by 2027. The key factors driving the growth of the global advanced therapy medicinal products market are high regulatory requirements, development costs, complex manufacturing processes, and favorable government support for ATMPs in key markets.

Advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs) are medicines for human use that are based on genes, tissues, or cells. They offer revolutionary novel opportunities for the treatment of diseases and injuries. ATMPs mainly target diseases with high unmet medical needs. It has extensive therapeutic potential for treating various types of diseases such as cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, and cardiovascular diseases.

ATMPs are broadly classified into the following three main types:

  • Gene Therapy Medicines: These work by inserting 'recombinant' genes into the body, which in turn is used to treat a variety of diseases such as genetic disorders, cancer and long-term diseases.
  • Somatic-cell Therapy Medicines: These contain cells or tissues that have been manipulated to change their biological characteristics or cells or tissues not intended to be used for the same essential functions in the body.
  • Tissue-engineered Medicines: These contain living cells, or tissues intended for implantation in the human body in order to replace an impaired function of tissue or organ or to maintain same function in case it is present already.

Development Complexities and Regulatory Adaptations Triggers the ATMPs Consulting Market Growth

The development of ATMPs is a complex manufacturing process resulting from handling living tissues or generating GMOs. The broad variety of ATMPs and their inherent complexity offers different analytical development challenges. Specific characterization, potency, purity, and identity assays are required for each product. Evolving regulatory requirements for ATMPs in key market regions such as the EU and U.S. and the need to meet increasingly demanding regulatory expectations pose significant regulatory hurdles. There is elaborate regulatory, non-clinical, clinical, clinical, and chemistry, manufacturing, and control (CMC) documentation required during the development, registration, and lifecycle of ATMPs. To overcome the challenging environment involving ATMPs, pharma, biotech, and CROs are increasingly seeking services of ATMP consulting companies.

“Due to development challenges and regulatory requirements involving ATMPs, the demand for specific ATMP consulting services such as CMC consultancy, preclinical and clinical regulatory advice, GMO submissions, support in clinical trial applications to regulatory bodies, and analytical services have grown manifolds in recent years."-Business Development Director, ATMP Consulting Provider, U.S.A

Government Support in Key Market Regions Drives the Development of Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products Consulting Market 

In key markets such as Europe, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) provides a broad range of advisory services (scientific advice and protocol assistance) and incentives to support the development of ATMPs. The European legislation provides scientific and financial incentives to encourage R&D in the area of advanced therapies. Developers of ATMPs can obtain reductions in the fees payable to EMA.

For instance, developers can get a 65% fee reduction for a request for scientific advice for ATMPs (90% for SMEs) and a 90% fee reduction for the certification procedure. EMA's Innovation Task Force (ITF) provides a forum for the informal exchange of information and guidance in the development process of ATMPs and their planned regulatory strategies between EMA and developers.

The UK is at the forefront of realizing the potential of advanced therapies. Over the years, there have been significant investments in the UK (£3.8bn since 2012) to support ATMP development. The number of ATMP clinical trials in the UK increases every year (20% increase in 2020) and approximately 12% of all ongoing global ATMP trials are conducted in the UK.
