Rising Demand for Primary Hepatocytes in Drug Development, Drug Testing, and New Cancer Treatment: Persistence Market Research

Published On : Apr 15, 2022

Recent developments in stem cell therapy and the advantages of primary hepatocytes over cell lines have been contributing to the growth of the global primary hepatocytes market. The market was valued at US$ 213.8 Mn in 2021, and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 6.6% over the forecast period (2022-2032).

Rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, speedy growth in biopharmaceutical industries, and developing focus on R&D are some of the key factors propelling the growth of the primary hepatocytes market. Advancements in cancer research and increase in healthcare infrastructure are further driving market expansion.

Use of primary hepatocytes for drug delivery and toxicity tests is projected to increase significantly owing to rising prevalence of cancer worldwide. Increasing incidence of several cancers, such as liver, lung, and breast cancer, are anticipated to fuel revenue growth of the global primary hepatocytes market over the forecast period.

In recent years, demand for drugs therapy for cancer patients has increased owing to increasing awareness among physicians. Thus, research involving primary hepatocytes is increasing, and thereby has a positive impact on the market.
