Global Market for Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells to Reach $2.9 Billion in 2018; Technology Offers New Hope for Regenerating Human Tissue
Date:7/17/2014

(PRWEB) July 17, 2014

BCC Research (http://www.bccresearch.com) reveals in its new report, INDUCED PLURIPOTENT STEM CELLS: GLOBAL MARKETS, the global market for induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) is expected to grow to $2.9 billion by 2018, with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.7%. The Asia-Pacific market, the fastest performing regional segment, is projected to move at a significant CAGR of 22%.

iPSCs are a breakthrough technology recognized by the 2012 Nobel Physiology and Medicine Prize. They are expected to bring revolutionary changes to modern medicine and new hope for reprogramming cells to repair damaged tissues in the human body. They are already useful for drug development and modeling of diseases; scientists hope to use them as powerful tools in tissue transplants since they can be developed from a patient's own cells, avoiding the risk of rejection that is often encountered. The technologies of differentiating iPSCs into various tissue cells are also developing rapidly.

Markets and applications for this technology include academic research, drug development and toxicity testing, regenerative medicine, molecular and cellular engineering, cellular reprogramming, and cell culture.

"The clinical research and service iPSCs market is expected to experience rapid growth in the next few years," says BCC Research biotechnology analyst Mike Fan. "Indeed, iPSCs technology is speeding up and improving the drug discovery process, particularly in promoting personal medicine and the development of personalized drugs and diagnostic tests."

iPSCs are artificially derived from non-pluripotent somatic cells by inducing expression of specific genes. Similar to embryonic stem cells, iPSCs possess pluripotency but reduce associated ethical issues by eliminating the use of embryos. Pluripotency refers to the ability to become any tissue in the body, excluding a placenta.

INDUCED PLURIPOTENT STEM CELLS: GLOBAL MARKETS provides an overview of the global market for iPSCs. It includes analyses of global market trends, with data from 2012 and 2013, and projections of CAGRs through 2018, as well as profiles of companies important in the industry.
