Global Cell-Based Assays Market Is Set to Increase About $26.5 Billion By 2030

03-May-2023 | Zion Market Research

The global cell-based assays industry size was nearly $16.3 Billion in 2022 and is set to increase to about $26.5 Billion by 2030 along with securing the highest gains of 12.4% from 2023 to 2030.

Global Cell-Based Assays Market Size

Cell-based assays assist in monitoring the effectiveness of compounds in a cellular environment. This, in turn, is key in understanding compound behaviors in a biological ecosystem and bringing into line data with a translatable biomarker. Cellular assays are finding a plethora of applications in biomedical and drug-discovery testing activities.

This will help in effectively determining toxicity, biological activities, biochemical equipment, and off-target interactions. The advantage of making utilization of cell-based assays are the generation of complicated and biologically relevant data. Unlike conventional biochemical assays, cell-based assays are physiologically relevant and can determine complicated properties simultaneously.

Pharma & biotech companies and CROs are making utility of cell-based assays for detecting and optimizing methods in drug discovery methods. This, in turn, will help in carving a favorable growth curve for the cell-based assays market across the globe. The manufacturing price of biopharmaceuticals has increased to a major extent and hence healthcare professional including hospitals & clinics are likely to adopt the use of cell-based assays. This will prompt the expansion of the global market trends.

Nevertheless, huge device costs and low usage of reagents can hinder the global cell-based assays industry expansion in the forecasting years. In addition to this, massive costs of maintaining equipment used in biotech research and an increase in indirect spending as well as a surge in the overall costs of ownership of devices can further decimate the industry growth across the globe. Increase in the investments for research & development activities related to biotech & pharma sectors will open new facets of growth for the global industry.

Global Cell-Based Assays Market Size

The global cell-based assays market is divided into application, product, end-use, and region.                

The application segment of the cell-based assays market is segmented into reagents, cell lines, instrument & software, assay kits, microplate, and services segments. Moreover, the assay kits segment, which led the application space in 2022, is set to maintain its segmental dominance even in the foreseeable future. The segmental expansion in the coming years can be owing to its large-scale use in the biopharmaceutical industry.

On the basis of product, the cell-based assays industry across the globe is bifurcated into basic research and drug discovery segments. The drug discovery segment, which led the application landscape in 2022, is projected to contribute to a major industry share in the forecasting years. The upsurge of the segment in the next couple of years can be subject to the strong demand for new therapeutic drugs including generic ones for effective treatment of a spectrum of ailments across the globe. The scaling up of the drug discovery segment can be due to a prominent increment in the number of FDA approvals of newly launched drugs which also include generic drugs.

Based on the end-use, cell-based assays across the globe is sectored into academic & research institutes, pharmaceutical & biotech companies, and CROs segments. Moreover, the academic & research institutes segment, which contributed lucratively towards the global market share in 2022, is anticipated to register the highest CAGR over the next eight years. The expansion of the segment in the next couple of years can be ascribed to an increase in the acceptance of these cell-based assays in biotech research & development ventures as well as the devising of new assay-based diagnostics. Apart from this, Moreover, cell-based assays assist in research in the oncology, stem cells, and immunology domains.

In addition to this, North America, which contributed to more than two-fifths of the global cell-based assays market share in 2022, is expected to establish a number one position in the global market over the estimated timeline. The regional market upsurge from 2023 to 2030 can be owing to extensive research on medical products in the U.S. and Canada. Apparently, the presence of well-known academic research organizations as well as pharmaceutical industries in North America will account sizably for the regional market size.
