Strategic industry consolidations and increase in demand for Ready-to-Use (RTU) Bioassay Banks is trending the global GMP cell banking services market
One of the key objectives of the report is to identify the key trends governing the global GMP cell banking services market and present a clear picture of the various forces impacting the market at a micro and macro level. A sustained growth of the market can be attributed to macro-economic drivers such as increased public and private sector funding for disease research, which is expected to bring newer therapies to the market; high costs of clinical development; and various collaborative initiatives to identify therapies for difficult-to-treat illnesses.
On the supply side, an expansion of production facilities by key players to meet growing customer demand besides offering customized solutions based on specific customer needs (this involves strategic tie-ups between biopharmaceutical companies and cell banking service providers) are some of the factors likely to push the global GMP cell banking services market ahead in the coming years. The report also identifies certain demand side drivers boosting the market such as a growing number of biologics in development currently, limited in-house storage and testing capabilities and a rise in the demand for outsourcing and contract manufacturing.
While the above growth factors are indicative of a mature market, Persistence Market Research identifies certain pull factors likely to restrain the market to a certain extent in the coming years. First off, the global GMP cell banking services market is highly fragmented with multiple vendors offering a variety of services – resulting in limited global reach. Besides, complexities in the production and manufacturing processes, a constantly evolving technology landscape, and inconsistent demand for services are likely to restrain revenue growth of the global GMP cell banking services market during the forecast period.
Persistence Market Research predicts a large opportunity for key players in the fast growing Asia Pacific region. It must be noted that there has been a shift of R&D and technology investments in the healthcare industry from North America and Europe to Asia Pacific with developing APAC economies such as India offering increased scope for outsourcing of biotech projects owing to ample skilled and qualified manpower at optimal costs.
Mammalian cell type segment to retain its pole position throughout the forecast period
Among the cell type segments, the Mammalian segment was the dominant segment in 2016 and is expected to retain its dominance through 2025. From an estimated US$ 216 Mn in 2017 to a market valuation in excess of US$ 680 Mn by the end of the forecast period, the Mammalian segment will register the highest CAGR of 15.6% among the other cell type segments. The Microbial segment is the second most attractive cell type segment in the global GMP cell banking services market in terms of revenue. Registering a value CAGR of 12.9% between 2017 and 2025, the Microbial segment will hold the second position among the cell type segments of the global GMP cell banking services market.
Biopharmaceutical Companies will be the largest end users of GMP cell banking services
Among the end user segment of the global GMP cell banking services market, the Biopharmaceutical Companies segment will emerge the undisputed leader both in terms of market share (estimated to hold almost 69% share by 2017 end) and CAGR (an impressive 15.4% during 2017 – 2025). In comparison, the Contract Manufacturing Organizations segment will come a pale second, recording a market attractiveness index of 0.5 during the forecast period.
