Natural killer (NK) cells are type of white blood cells (lymphocyte) which are important part of innate immune system. NK cells are also called as killer cells or K cells. NK cells are important in host rejection of virally infected cells and tumors. NK cells contain special proteins like perforin, proteases in their cytoplasm and are cytotoxic in nature. Perforin forms pore in cell membrane of target cells and proteases enter through these pores to induce apoptosis. NK cells get activated in response to macrophage-derived cytokines or interferons. NK deficient patients are highly vulnerable to primary phases of herpes virus infection. Natural killer cells can be used as therapeutics as they generate immune response against viral infections and malignancies.
The demand for natural killer cells therapeutics market is driven by increasing use of NK cells for treating viral infections, cancer, liver diseases etc. NK cells play crucial role in immune surveillance of tumor cells which has boosted its use in cancer therapy applications. Increasing R&D investments, increasing awareness about immunotherapies are other factors that propel the market growth across the globe. However poor in-vivo survival rate of NK cells, high cost and lack of specificity may act as restraint for the market growth of natural killer cells therapeutics. Emerging markets are expected to bring new growth opportunities for major market players operating in the global natural killer cells therapeutics.
Based on therapeutics, global natural killer cells therapeutics market is bifurcated into NK cell directed antibodies and NK cell therapies. NK cell directed antibodies therapeutics segment accounted for largest market share in 2018 and is expected to witness rapid CAGR over the forecast period. Increasing awareness for immunotherapies and increasing R&D investments has led to increasing use and thus has accounted for largest market share.
Based on application market is segmented into immunoproliferative disorders, gastrointestinal diseases, cancer and other applications. Among applications segment cancer dominated the market in 2018 and is projected to retain its dominance over the forecast period. Increasing cancer prevalence across globe, growing investments for novel therapy development for treating cancer are factors that attribute to largest market share of cancer application segment.
The end user segment is divided hospitals, research centers & institutes and other end users. Hospitals end user segment held largest market share due to increasing use of NK cell therapies for various therapeutic application across the globe. Research centers & institutes will witness rapid growth over the forecast period.
North America dominated the global natural killer cells therapeutics market in 2018. Increasing prevalence of cancer, preference for immunotherapies with lesser side effects, increasing R&D investments and growing awareness are factors driving the market in this region. Europe was second largest regional market. Presence of developed infrastructure, high unmet medical needs for treating cancer and increasing prevalence of cancer and awareness are some of factors that boost market growth in this region. Latin America is expected to witness moderate growth over the forecast period. Asia Pacific region will experience rapid growth for natural killer cells therapeutics market in the coming years. Increasing geriatric population base, growing prevalence of cancer, increasing awareness, increasing R&D investments are factors promoting natural killer cells therapeutics market growth in Asia Pacific. Middle East and Africa will see considerable growth in coming years.
