In-Vitro Toxicology Testing Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The size of the global in-vitro toxicology testing market is expected to reach USD 40768 Million by 2027 from USD 21025 Million in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 14.16% from 2022 to 2027.

In-vitro toxicology testing is the scientific analysis of toxic effects produced by chemical substances on cultured mammalian cells or bacteria. Toxicity testing is essential in drug discovery as it identifies the poisonous effects of the new compound in the early stages of drug discovery. This early detection of toxicity reduces the development cost and time.


The growing number of technological advancements, rising research & development in cell culture, growing demand for in-vitro toxicology tests over the conventional in-vivo tests are majorly promoting the global in-vitro toxicology testing market growth.

In recent times, regulatory agencies' validation and acceptance of in vitro toxicology testing methods are increasing at a lucrative rate, which is boosting the market. In several countries, government regulations mandate that geno-toxicology testing be performed on animals as a prerequisite before marketing the products for certain consumer items, genetically modified foods, vaccines, devices, drugs, industrial chemicals, and pesticides. Furthermore, technological advancements to replace animals for toxicological testing purposes have spurred in vitro testing models. In addition, increasing awareness of toxicity testing studies, expanding health-consciousness amongst individuals, and improving economic status in emerging nations, the existence of favorable regulatory authorities for toxicology testing using in-vitro tests drives the market's growth during the forecast period.

There has been an increase in government funding for life science research as part of research and development activities in the pharmaceutical industry and an emphasis on integrated studies. This has resulted in the establishment of various ethics review boards, institutional animal care and use committees, and animal care committees in vitro toxicology testing. As a result, increased outsourcing of services to CROs is anticipated to favor the market over the analysis period.

Other factors driving the market include research on early detection of toxicity, opposition to animal testing, growing focus on personalized medicine and drug discovery, and increasing product research activities by pharmaceutical companies.

Synergetic relationships between different stakeholders and an increase in toxicology databases facilitating in-vitro test methods offer essential growth opportunities for the global in-vitro toxicology testing market. In addition, developing condition-specific makers, tests, and increasing demand for IVD products in existing countries provide significant opportunities for the various stakeholders. GEM, which is Growth Engagement Model, aims to create or control working with the clients to establish new opportunities.


However, scarcity of in-vitro models to detect immunostimulants & autoimmunity, lack of predictive ability of in vitro testing over in vivo testing, technological advancements limiting the use & decreasing adoption rate are the significant factors restraining the growth of the in-vitro toxicology testing market. In addition, strict government regulations for the in vitro toxicology testing market are anticipated to limit the market growth. Furthermore, the inability of in vitro models to regulate immune-stimulation and autoimmunity is also expected to be a significant constraint for the global in-vitro toxicology testing market. Furthermore, there is a requirement for skilled professionals, such as researchers and technicians, to perform experiments. Therefore, a lack of knowledge about these technologies and inadequate staff is expected to slow the market down.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global in-vitro toxicology testing market:

The widespread novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is an infectious disease that originated in December 2019 in Wuhan, China. The virus has spread to every corner of the world, affecting all business sectors and numerous deaths. With the rise in demand for quick testing and research being organized, the need for in vitro toxicology technologies has accelerated. The FDA's approval for different in-vitro diagnostic kits like in-vitro diagnostic assays and PCR testing teams and medication for the emergency use in COVID-19 tests and diagnostics. The increasing COVID cases have led to a decrease in the number of patients visiting the hospitals and clinics, which diminished the market growth to some extent. The need for molecular testing is considered the gold standard for infectious disease diagnosis. The demand was a fight to address the RT-PCR testing, leading to a lack of reagents. Immunoassays are used to observe individuals by determining the antibodies against COVID-19. China and the United States authorities have approved a few NGS-based COVID-19 diagnostics for emergency usage. The US FDA has permitted emergency approval for two CRISPR-based diagnostic tests for COVID-19 from the initial stages. The global in-vitro toxicology testing market is forecasted to grow faster during the forecast period with the support received from the COVID-19.
