Market Overview

The cell-based assay market will show rapid growth due to the rising prevalence of chronic diseases and lifestyle disorders, increasing investments in R&D for drug discovery and the rise in technological advancements in cell-based methodologies.

The rising prevalence of chronic diseases and lifestyle disorders, such as cancer, cardiovascular, diabetes, and neurological disorders is one of the primary factors fueling the market growth. According to the WHO, chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. It has been calculated that, in 2001, chronic diseases contributed approximately 60% of the 56.5 million total reported deaths in the world and approximately 46% of the global burden of disease. The proportion of the burden of NCDs is expected to increase to 57% by 2020.

Almost half of the total chronic disease deaths are attributable to cardiovascular diseases, obesity and diabetes are also showing increasing trends. Thus, the rise in chronic diseases leads to demand growth for cell-based assays for new drug discoveries, making it a vital factor for market growth. In addition, the demand for cell-based assay has increased significantly owing to a surge in cell-based applications in drug discovery and the rise in technological advancements in cell-based assays methodologies.
