Global Cell Line Development Industry Expected to Reach US$4.67 Billion by 2033, Driven by Rising Demand in Pharma and Biotech

Global Cell Line Development Industry

Global Cell Line Development Industry

The Global Cell Line Development Industry is poised for steady growth, fueled by increasing demand in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. According to market analysis, the market size is expected to reach US$4.67 billion by 2033, reflecting a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.1% during the forecast period. In 2022, the market was valued at US$3.01 billion, and it is projected to exhibit a year-over-year (y-o-y) growth of 3.9% in 2023.

The substantial growth of the Global Cell Line Development Industry is predominantly attributed to the increasing adoption of bio-therapeutics for treating chronic diseases like arthritis, diabetes, and cancer. This surge in demand is driving the need for automated cell line development and cell line development services.

The rapid increase in the prevalence of cancer and neurology disorders and the lack of efficient treatment solutions for these diseases have created the need for more advanced and efficient treatment pathways. Companies and government organizations are investing in research and development activities and are also focusing more on cell line development in search of new cellular pathways to develop novel drugs. The increased spending on biosimilar R&D from exiting biopharmaceutical companies would provide a boost to the Global Cell Line Development Industry.

In recent times contract research organizations have focused on cell line development and cell line research activities. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the estimated total federal spending on all types of stem cell line research for 2017 is US$ 1.58 Bn. In developing countries like India, the government is supporting cell line development through national funding agencies like the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), and the Department of Science and Technology (DST).

Regenerative medicines are the next-generation treatment solution and Cell Line Development or Cell Culture is a vital part of regenerative medicine. Increasing demand for regenerative medicines in cancer treatment would positively impact the growth of the Global Cell Line Development Industry over the forecast period.

The biopharmaceutical companies operating in the development of novel drug lines are expected to hold promising revenue opportunities in the Global Cell Line Development Industry.

Future Market Insights (FMI) has segmented the Global Cell Line Development Industry based on product type, cell line source type, end user, type of cell line, and region.

Product type segment in the Global Cell Line Development Industry is segmented into media and reagents, equipment, and accessories. Reagents and Media are required from incubation to preservation of cell lines. These products are expensive and have repetitive use in cell culture or bio-production. The reagent and media segment in the cell line development market is expected to witness noteworthy growth in terms of revenue owing to a rapid increase in demand for cell culture and cell-based assays.

Global Cell Line Development Industry by cell line source is categorized into mammalian cells and non-mammalian cells. Mammalian cell line development is anticipated to witness significant growth in the overall Global Cell Line Development Industry. This growth of the mammalian cells segment in the cell line development market is driven by increased production of biologics drugs that require mammalian cells. Increasing antibody production is the major driving factor behind the growth of the mammalian cell lines segment in the Global Cell Line Development Industry.

Mammalian cell lines are used to create therapeutic proteins through genetic building and antibodies through viral infection. For example, Gaucher’s disease is a genetic disorder characterized by a lack of β-glucocerebrosidase enzyme and can be treated by Cerezyme which is a recombinant enzyme produced in mammalian cell lines. Mammalian cell lines are also useful in the production of antibodies and other therapeutic agents such as specific binding proteins that can neutralize disease-causing agents in the body. For example Under the cell line type segment in the Global Cell Line Development Industry, recombinant cell line development is the most demanding type of cell line due to its large application in biologics production, protein interaction, gene activation, toxicity testing, and drug screening.
