- Opportunity and Forecast, 2016 - 2025
Stem cell therapy is the use of stem cells for treatment or prevention of diseases. Research activities are conducted worldwide for development of stem cell treatments for heart diseases, diabetes, and others. It is majorly used for the treatment of cancer, to study effects on neuronal degeneration, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, and others. Ongoing R&D activities and novel techniques are expected to foster the growth of the market in the coming years.
Rise in funding, development of advanced genomic methods, increase in focus on human embryonic stem cells, and surge in approvals of clinical trials for stem cells therapy drive the growth of the global stem cell therapy market. However, lack of required infrastructure, difficulties related with the preservation of stem cells, ethical issues, immunorejection after stem cell transplantation, complexity involved in identification of stem cells in adult tissues limit the market growth. Lack of effective treatments to cure diseases, evolution of new stem cell therapies, and emergence of induced pluripotent stem (IPS) cells as an alternative to ESCS are anticipated to create opportunities in the industry.
The global stem cell therapy market is segmented based on mode of therapy, therapeutic applications, and geography. Mode of therapy is subsegmented into allogeneic and autologous stem cell therapy. On the basis of therapeutic applications, the market is divided into eye diseases, GIT diseases, metabolic diseases, immune system diseases, musculoskeletal disorders, CNS diseases, wounds & injuries, and others. Geographically, the market is segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and LAMEA.
