Mesenchymal stem cells are the adult stem cells. Mesenchymal stem cells are of various types such as monocytes, adipocytes, osteocytes and chondrocytes. Mesenchymal stem cells main function is to replace or repair damage tissue. In addition, mesenchymal stem cells have high potential for tissue repair. Mesenchymal stem cells are isolated from other tissues such as fallopian tube, cord blood, fetal liver, peripheral blood and fetal lung. Mesenchymal stem cells are renewable source to substitute tissue and cells to treat disabilities and diseases.
North America dominates the global market for mesenchymal stem cell due to large number of aging population and increasing incidence of cancers. Asia is expected to show high growth rates in the next five years in the global mesenchymal stem cell market. China and India are expected to be the fastest growing mesenchymal stem cell markets in Asia-Pacific region. Some of the key driving forces for mesenchymal stem cell market in emerging countries are large pool of patients and rising government funding and support.
In recent times there is increased use of mesenchymal stem cell due to increasing aging population. Rising incidence of chronic diseases, regulatory and government support and increasing investment in stem cell biology are some of the key factors driving the growth for the global mesenchymal stem cell market. In addition, increasing use of mesenchymal stem cell as a substitute to knee replacement surgeries and other operative procedures is also fuelling the growth of the global mesenchymal stem cell market. However, lack of therapeutic advancement related to vitro properties of stem cell is the major factor restraining the growth for the global mesenchymal stem cell market.
Numerous ethical, political and religious controversies on mesenchymal stem cell could lead a challenge for the global mesenchymal stem cell market. Some of the trends for the global mesenchymal stem cell market are increasing collaborations and partnerships and rising innovation of mesenchymal stem cell products. Some of the major companies operating in the global mesenchymal stem cell market are EMD Millipore Corporation, Cell Applications, Inc., Cyagen Biosciences, Inc., Genlantis, Inc., Advanced Cell Technology Incorporated, Stemcell Technologies Inc., Celprogen, Inc., Stemedica Cell Technologies, Aastrom Biosciences and ScienCell Research Laboratories.
