The global stem cell market is estimated to be worth USD 32633 million by 2028 and USD 18173 million in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 12.42% during the forecast period. The market is to increase because of the extensive research and development, which is gaining significant importance.
In multicellular organisms, stem cells have a unique ability to regenerate into a specific cell to form different tissues in the body. These cells can work as a replacement in place of damaged tissue cells and have full applications in healthcare and as a result, stem cells have been accepted throughout the world. Regenerative medicine is possibly the most important use of stem cells and other essential areas comprise cardiology, neurology, orthopedics, hematology and oncology. Drug discovery is another application where stem cells have been increasingly used. Stem cells are used as a research tool by researchers in vitro studies to deeply understand the role of various organs and the development of diseases. Stem cell therapy has shown significant potential to treat cancer successfully.
Impact of COVID-19 on the global stem cell market:
The COVID-19 pandemic has given both setbacks and opportunities to the global stem cell market. On one side, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused severe disruption in the R&D and clinical trials that involve stem cell therapies and slowed down the pace of research and development in the field. The disruptions in the global supply chains caused by the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the shortage of materials and equipment required for R&D and manufacturing that have a connection with stem cells and impacted the market growth negatively. On the other hand, the COVID-19 pandemic has boosted the demand for stem cell therapies. During the COVID-19 pandemic, stem cell therapies have been increasingly used for the treatment of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) caused by COVID-19. Several governments worldwide have come forward and supported the R&D of stem cells to address the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and favored the market growth during the COVID-19 pandemic term. The usage of telemedicine skyrocketed during the COVID-19 pandemic and several patients worldwide have used the telemedicine platforms to avail healthcare services and get stem cell therapies remotely. Such factors have offered opportunities to the market participants of the stem cell market during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The growing usage of stem cells in cancer treatment primarily drives the global stem cell market growth. The cancer patient population is on the rise worldwide and is expected to fuel in the coming years. WHO says cancer is the second leading cause of death globally and caused an estimated 9.6 million deaths in 2018. The American Cancer Society predicts that there were an estimated 1.9 million new cancer cases in the U.S. were recorded in 2022. The usage of stem cells in cancer treatments has seen a tremendous spike in recent years and this trend is expected to continue in the coming years as stem cells hold great promise to treat cancer. Considering the potential of stem cells such as regenerating damaged tissues and replacing cancerous cells, the demand for stem cells has been increasing steadily over the last few years.
The growing number of R&D activities related to stem cells further fuels the market’s growth rate. The potential that stem cells hold in treating various diseases has been recognized in recent years and several pharmaceutical companies have been conducting numerous R&D activities to explore the possibilities of stem cells and this trend is likely to continue during the forecast period and contribute to the market growth. For Instance, somatic stem cell therapy or bone marrow transplant is a procedure used to treat leukemia (blood cancer) as bone marrow has many stem cells.
The growing aging population worldwide is another major factor boosting the growth rate of the stem cell market. The aging population is on the rise worldwide and as per the estimates of the United Nations (UN), 1 in every 6 people is predicted to be aged above 65 years by 2050 and the total population above 65 years will reach 1.5 billion by 2050. People are much more likely to experience age-related diseases and conditions such as arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, and neurodegenerative disorders with growing age. Stem cell therapies have the ability to treat these conditions by regenerating damaged tissues and organs and this awareness among the healthcare professionals and patient population has increased notably in recent years and boosted the demand levels for stem cells. The regenerative capacity of a human body gradually decreases with growing age and in such situations, stem cell therapies can be used to address age-related health issues such as age-related macular degeneration, osteoporosis and Alzheimer's disease. People who are aged have higher chances of organ failure and require organ transplantation. The world is currently facing a severe shortage of organ donors and some healthcare organizations have been using stem cell-based therapies for organ regeneration as stem cells hold the ability to generate new tissues and organs that can eliminate the need for organ transplantation.
The growing investments by the governments and market participants for the R&D of stem cells, increasing technological advancements, rising awareness regarding the potential benefits of stem cells among healthcare professionals and increasing number of collaborations between the market participants and academic institutions to explore the possibilities of stem cells contribute to the market’s growth rate. The favorable regulations and initiatives by the governments for stem cells, rising demand for regenerative medicine, growing patient population suffering from orthopedic diseases, rising adoption of personalized medicine and growing use of stem cells in drug discovery and development further support the stem cell market growth. The rising demand for stem cell banking services, growing adoption of stem cell therapies in developing countries, increasing number of stem cell clinical trials, technological advancements in stem cell processing and preservation, rising use of stem cells in tissue engineering and growing demand for stem cell-based therapies in veterinary medicine are anticipated to fuel the growth rate of the stem cell market during the forecast period.
Ethical and legal concerns especially with embryonic stem cells associated with stem cell research and therapies and high costs associated with stem cell therapies majorly hamper the market growth. Lack of standardization in stem cell research and therapy and limited availability of stem cells further hinder market growth. Unfavorable reimbursement policies for stem cell therapies in some countries, stringent regulatory environment for stem cell research and therapy in some countries, safety and efficacy issues of stem cell therapy and the competition from alternative therapies such as gene therapy and immunotherapy further impede the market growth.
