Global Immortalized Cell Line Market Overview

The Immortalized Cell Line Market Size was valued at USD 4.23 Billion in 2023. The Global Immortalized Cell Line industry is projected to grow from USD 4.51 Billion in 2024 to USD 7.56 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.67% during the forecast period (2024 - 2032). Immortalized cell lines are either tumorous cells that do not stop dividing or cells that have been artificially manipulated to proliferate indefinitely and can, thus, be cultured over several generations. These cell lines are expected to grow due to the rise in vaccine production and innovative technologies. Besides, the ability of cell line culture to provide more physiologically relevant information and more accurate data in-vitro tests has led cell line culture systems to become acceptable in comparison to media culture.

Immortalized Cell Line Market


The increasing application in biotech and pharmaceutical companies and hospitals, a growing number of patients in need of organ transplantation, and the rise in the patient population affected by cancer are the major drivers propelling market growth. However, the high cost of equipment and developing a stable strain of cell line and maintaining and preventing it from contamination may hinder the growth of the market.

February 2024

For the first time ever, the revolutionary spontaneously immortalized bovine myoblast cell line known as PROFUSE-B8 has been formally introduced, and it is now available for licensing. In announcing its official debut, ProFuse Technology is glad to share the news. This recent achievement, which marks a significant milestone in the field of farmed meat, has resulted in the introduction of a paradigm shift in the efficient growth of muscle tissue that is rich in protein.

The PROFUSE-B8 cell line, which has been the subject of significant study and testing over the course of a full two-year period, provides cultured meat manufacturers with a solid and robust foundation for the establishment of scalable, repeatable, and cost-competitive production processes. This has been accomplished by testing and researching the cell line over the course of two years. It is important to note that B8 is able to do this without using any method that includes genetic alteration. This ensures that it is in complete accordance with the preferences and consent of customers.

Its revolutionary features are complimented by the fact that, when taken with the PROFUSE-S1 muscle differentiation media supplement, the synthesis of muscle tissue is speed up, which results in increased productivity in a shorter length of time. This is a significant advantage.

ProFuse Technology is 100% committed to advancing the cultured meat business by providing cutting-edge solutions for the production of muscle-related goods. This commitment is steadfast. At the same time, the company is making significant progress toward the development of other muscle production-optimized cell lines that are tailored to the unique requirements of chicken, hog, lamb, and fish for specialized purposes.

According to Dr. Tamar Eigler-Hirsh, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder of ProFuse Technology, in a statement, "We are thrilled to introduce PROFUSE-B8 as a transformative solution for the cultivated meat industry." "Our dedication to innovation and productivity is evident in the development of this breakthrough cell line, and we are confident it will shape the future of cell based protein production."

Immortalized Cell Line Market Trends

The increasing demand for organ donation due to scarcity in the availability of organs is driving the need for artificially created biological cells. For instance, according to the US Department of Health & Human Services Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN), as of November 2016, 121,678 patients were waiting for a life-saving organ transplant. This rising demand for an organ transplant is expected to drive the growth of the market during the forecast period. Additionally, increasing application in biotech and pharmaceutical companies and hospitals and rise in the patient population affected by cancer are likely to support market growth. On the other hand, the high cost of equipment and developing a stable strain of cell line and maintaining and preventing it from contamination is anticipated to hamper the market growth.
