Global Cell-Based Assay Market to Reach US$ 42.9 Billion by 2032, Impelled by Growing Prevalence of Chronic Diseases

May 19, 2022 | Healthcare

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Cell-based Assay Market Report by Product and Services (Consumables, Instruments, Services, Software), Technology (Automated Handling, Flow Cytometry, Label-Free Detection, High-Throughput Screening, and Others), Application (Drug Discovery, Basic Research, ADME Studies, Predictive Toxicology, and Others), End-User (Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Companies, Academic and Government Institutions, Contract Research Organizations, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” finds that the global cell-based assay market size reached US$ 22.5 Billion in 2023. Cell-based assay or cellular assay is an analytical method to determine the concentration of a substance by observing its effects on living organisms (in vivo) or tissues (in vitro). It provides a closer representation of the real-life model, which helps to verify the biological activity of drugs and determine whether the antibodies produced by the patient are neutralizing the drug. Owing to these properties, cell-based assays are widely adopted in biomedical research and drug-discovery screening for gene activation, cell signaling, cell proliferation, antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC), complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC), apoptosis, and necrosis.

Global Cell-Based Assay Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the growing prevalence of chronic disorders such as cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. Nowadays, cell-based assays are widely used for screening mutagenesis in chronic myeloid leukemia. In addition, the rising adoption of cell-based assays in drug discovery represents another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, with various technological advancements, researchers are using this technique for high throughput screening methods like toxicity studies, drug screening, and in vitro testing. This, coupled with extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by the leading players to formulate safer drugs, is propelling the market growth. Moreover, the introduction of 3D and label-free cell-based assays, the rising number of drug discovery companies, and huge investments in cell-based research activities are some of the other factors creating a favorable market outlook across the globe. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 42.9 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
