Global Cell Surface Markers Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global cell surface markers market size is predicted to expand at a CAGR of 8.12% from 2023 to 2028 and be worth USD 1052.9 million by 2028 from USD 712.61 million in 2023.

Protein or antigenic determinants located on the surface of various types of cells are known as cell surface markers. They also serve as a marker for determining the cell type. In addition, cell surface marker analysis is used to determine ligands or drug responses in research activities. End-use verticals and companies concentrate on CD markers, t cell surface markers, the cluster of differentiation in immunology, t cell markers flow cytometry, T cell marker immunohistochemistry, T cell immunophenotyping, cell membrane, lymphocyte markers, a cluster of differentiation, and others. The percentage of lymphocytes and the absolute number of lymphocytes are examples of constant innovation.


The growing demand for precision medicine is one of the major factors propelling the growth of the cell surface markers market.

The adoption of precision medicine is growing rapidly worldwide. Precision medicine differs from traditional medicine and is more effective in treating diseases. Cell surface markers play a vital role in the development of precision medicine as it allows researchers to identify specific target cells or biomarkers associated with diseases. For example, cell surface markers are used to identify specific types of cancer cells and later researchers use this information to develop target therapies that can show a significant impact on the cancer cells. In the coming years, the demand for precision medicine is predicted to grow significantly due to factors such as the increasing patient population suffering from chronic diseases and the rapid adoption of technological developments in precision medicine, which is expected to boost the demand for cell surface markers and contribute to the market’s growth rate.

In addition, increasing usage of advanced diagnostics and technological advancements of throughput and automation fuel the global cell surface markers market growth.  As a result of continued efforts to reduce disease and healthcare burdens, the global market is expected to grow due to the increased usage of advanced analytical technologies and in-vitro diagnostic instruments. The growing use of stem cell technology and initiatives to lower the cost of disease diagnostics is another key factor supporting the market's growth rate. New therapeutics that target liver cancer stem cells are likely to increase the overall efficacy of standard radiation and chemotherapy treatments for liver cancer.

Furthermore, the growing funding for life sciences research, a high global prevalence of cancer, and expansion in stem cell and neurobiology research are favoring the growth rate of the cell surface marker market. Advanced laboratory equipment such as flow cytometers can easily aid in rapidly detecting severe medical diseases. The availability of high-end and faster cell sorting and cell analysis solutions in flow cytometers for research and clinical development makes point-of-care diagnosis more accessible by automating sample processing and allowing high throughput screening, which is expected to support the cell surface marker market growth during the forecast period.


However, high costs associated with cell surface marker services are one of the major factors hampering the growth of the market. Small pharmaceutical companies are increasingly hesitant to invest in highly complex flow cytometers and hematological analyzers due to the unclear cost-benefit relationship. Furthermore, because drug development is expensive, smaller pharmaceutical companies cannot afford to invest in pricey equipment and consumables, which is expected to limit the market’s growth rate during the forecast period. Furthermore, the complicated products, expensive instruments, and reagents utilized in cell marker analysis hinder market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the cell surface markers market:

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the cell surface markers market. Cell surface markers are carbohydrates and proteins linked to the cell membrane, allowing them to play an essential role in intercellular signaling. The interaction of COVID-19 antibodies with cell surface indicators is the subject of numerous research initiatives. Due to their decreased immunity, many COVID-19 patients see an upsurge in secondary fungal infections. As a result, those cell surface markers are expected to research fungal infection to improve growth. In addition, such activities help enhance understanding of the disease and develop new methods to find a cure. More research initiatives using cell surface markers to examine the effect of COVID-19 are being undertaken worldwide. As a result, such innovations are projected to support market growth.
