Cell Viability Assays Market Trends



  • Growing adoption for drug discovery is driving the market growth


The growing use of cell viability assays for the discovery of drugs is driving Market CAGR for Cell Viability Assays. The existence of living or viable cells is referred to as cell viability, and it is thought to be a sign of good cell health. Viability levels are frequently altered in studies as a result of the action of chemical or physical agents, as in toxicity experiments. Cell viability assays (CVAs) are widely utilized in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors because they can be used to assess how cells would react to any pathogenic agent or medication.


Cell viability assays are becoming more often used in drug discovery and treatment programs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, Calidi Biotherapeutics Inc. declared in August 2020 that Personalized Stem Cells, Inc.'s IND (investigational new drug) application had been approved by the US FDA. The IND that was submitted was for the use of stem cells in the treatment of individuals with COVID-19 and pneumonia. Therefore, the usage of cell viability assay for understanding the reaction of living cells and viability for any line of treatment has been greatly ignited by the rise in cellular-based therapies for the treatment of Covid-19 infection.


The development of cell-based medicines is receiving more attention, which is propelling market expansion. Industry development is being aided by rising FDA approvals, scientific trials, and strategic activities like partnerships between important market participants. For instance, the FDA approved Abecma (idecabtagene vicleucel), in March 2021. In addition, CRISPR Therapeutics and ViaCyte, Inc. reported in February 2022 that the Phase 1 trial for a new gene-edited treatment for Type 1 Diabetes had dosed its first patient. These activities are anticipated to fuel industry expansion during the anticipated years


Additionally, increasing financing for stem cell research from various governments and industry participants is projected to create new market expansion prospects. For instance, the Federal Minister for Health and Aged Care, Hon. Greg Hunt, provided money totaling USD 18 million to the 2020 Stem Cell Mission in June 2021. The motive is to enhance health outcomes through the development and delivery of new, safe, and efficient stem cell treatments. Additionally, Curi Bio obtained investment in the amount of USD 10 million in January 2022 for a drug discovery platform that focuses on stem cells. Therefore, it is anticipated that the market will be driven during the study period by the growing emphasis on stem cell research. Thus, driving the Cell Viability Assays market revenue.
