Market Segmentation:

The market is segmented by type (autologous and allogenic), application (malignancies, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, and others), and geography (North America, Europe, Asia, and Rest of World (ROW)).

  • By type, the market growth in the autologous segment will be significant over the forecast period. The growth of the segment will be driven by factors such as increasing government funding for R&D, the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, and the increasing focus of vendors on developing effective cell therapy products. The growing focus of vendors on developing novel treatments for emerging applications such as cardiology and ophthalmology will further drive the growth of the segment.

Market Dynamics:

Market Driver:

  • Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases
  • Limitations in traditional organ transplantations fueling demand for cell therapies
  • Increasing funding in cell-based research

The market is driven by the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases. The prevalence of chronic diseases, such as heart diseases, diabetes, stroke, cancer, obesity, and arthritis, is on the rise globally. This can be attributed to the adoption of unhealthy lifestyle habits such as lack of exercise, poor nutrition intake, and substance abuse such as addiction to alcohol and tobacco. Most treatment options available for these conditions only focus on relieving symptoms without dealing with the cause of the condition. Regenerative medicines overcome the challenges of untreatable diseases by using new treatment methods such as processed cells for reconstructing tissues. These methods also reduce healthcare costs by eliminating the need for long-term hospitalization. Such benefits are increasing the adoption of cell therapies for the treatment of chronic diseases, which is driving the growth of the market.

Major Trends:

  • Increasing focus on cell therapy products
  • Strategic alliances
  • Increasing focus on the development of drugs for emerging applications

There is a high unmet need for the treatment of oncology and musculoskeletal disorders. This has encouraged vendors to focus on developing cell therapies for emerging applications. For instance, Amgen is currently developing Blinatumomab, a Phase III candidate, for the treatment of B-cell Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Also, Bristol-Myers Squibb reported positive results from its Phase II clinical trial of lenalidomide for the treatment of multiple myeloma. The drug is currently in its Phase III development stage. Similarly, many vendors are extensively conducting clinical trials on autologous cell therapy products for the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. Such developments are expected to fuel the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Key Challenges:

  • High cost and failure rate in clinical trials
  • Strict regulatory approval for product launch
  • Ethical concerns in stem cell research

The estimated cost between the preclinical developmental stage of a cell therapy product to its approval can go up to USD 1.5 billion. Hence, most small vendors or start-ups seek government or private funding. Besides, most of the therapies fail clinical trials due to safety and efficacy issues. In addition, the development of a robust proof-of-concept preclinical model can be expensive, as it involves immunomodulation to match the human immune system. Moreover, the difficulty in finding a sufficient number of patients results in delays and indirectly increases clinical trial costs. All these challenges will hinder the growth of the market during the forecast period.
