Organ transplantation is crucial to people suffering from end-stage organ failure. Organ transplantation is not always advisable and faces numerous challenges such as the limited availability of donor organs, the risk of rejection, and the need for lifelong immunosuppressive therapy. Due to this, the demand for alternative approaches to treating organ failures, such as cell-based therapies and tissue engineering has been growing continuously. As per the data published by the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 400,000 organ transplants are being performed worldwide each year and the shortage of organ donors has become a challenge to the healthcare system. An estimated 110,000 people were on the waiting list for organs in 2020 in the United States.

In addition, the growing number of research activities by numerous pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies fuels the need for cell culture technologies for drug discovery and development and resulting in market growth. The rising usage of cell therapy technologies in the cosmetics and personal care industries for the development of new products and testing the effectiveness and safety of existing products boost the growth rate of the cell culture market. The growing importance of cell-based assays in drug discovery and development, the increasing number of advancements in stem cell research, the rising need for in-vitro testing for the safety assessment of drugs and chemicals, and increasing demand for animal-free testing methods are fuelling the growth of the cell culture market.

Furthermore, increasing usage of cell culture technologies in the F&B industry to develop plant-based proteins and the production of meat alternatives, increasing emphasis on the development of advanced biomanufacturing technologies, such as perfusion bioreactors, rising demand for CAR-T cell therapies and growing adoption of regenerative medicine are predicted to favor the cell culture market growth.

MARKET RESTRAINTS:

On the other hand, the high cost of equipment and reagents used for cell culture is one of the major factors hampering the market growth. Due to these high costs, the adoption of cell culture technologies among the smaller laboratories and research facilities is being limited. The lack of infrastructure for cell-based research in some countries and the scarcity of skilled professionals that can perform cell culture research activities are limiting the market’s growth rate. The complexities associated with cell culture research and lack of funding are further hindering market growth.
