Cancer cells are abnormal cells that grow uncontrollably and can spread to other parts of the body. These cancerous cells are removed from a patient’s body or cultured in a laboratory and utilized for various purposes like cancer research, drug discovery, personalized medicine development and toxicity testing. Growing prevalence of different types of cancers across the globe is augmenting the demand for cancer cell lines for development of novel diagnostic methods and targeted therapies. Furthermore, rising awareness regarding benefits of cancer research and availability of government and private funding is boosting investments in R&D activities.
The global cancer cell market is estimated to be valued at US$ 12440.97 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 11% over the forecast period from 2024 to 2030.
Growing geriatric population coupled with increasing risk of cancer with age is propelling the market growth. Cancer cell lines find various applications in research including cancer biology, genomic instability, and tumorigenesis studies. They serve as cost-effective and easily accessible models for initial drug screening and toxicity studies.
Key players operating in the cancer cell market are Honeywell International Inc., Siemens AG, General Electric Company, and Schneider Electric SE.
The availability of government grants and private funding presents lucrative opportunities for market players. Increased R&D investments by pharmaceutical companies for development of personalized medicines using cancer cell lines will further contribute to market revenue.
North America dominates the Global Cancer Cell Market Share and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. However, Asia Pacific market is anticipated to exhibit fastest growth attributed to increasing healthcare expenditure, rising awareness, and favorable government initiatives.
Increasing investments in R&D activities from government and private entities is a key growth driver for the cancer cell market.
