Market Overview

The In Vitro Lung Model market is projected to grow with a CAGR of nearly 17.3% over the forecast period. The major factor attributing to the growth of the market is the increase in the awareness and focus on developing alternatives for animal testing models. The shift in focus is due to two reasons, firstly, despite large similarities, there are differences between a given animal species and humans, a second issue regarding the use of animals for scientific purposes is animal protection and welfare. According to Animal Welfare Institute, Russell and Burch’s ‘3Rs’ should be followed which states, replacement of animals in research with alternatives; reduction in the number of animals used in experiments, and refinement of the care and treatment of the animals who continue to be used in research, testing and education. Furthermore, the funding and investments for product development and research are boosting the market growth. However, the lack of skilled labor is the major drawback of the growth of the market.

Scope of the Report

As per the scope of the report in vitro lung models are defined as cell models that represent normal or diseased lung physiology. These cells when constructed in a monolayer on a Petri plate are called 2D in vitro models. 3D models have a 3-dimensional architecture and use supports and scaffolds to maintain their structure. This report is segmented by Type, by Application, and by Geography.

Key Market Trends

2D Cell Models Segment is Expected to Witness Rapid Growth

2D cell culture systems grow cells on flat dishes, typically made of plastic. The cells are put onto coated surfaces where they adhere and spread. The 2D cell cultures are mostly used as they are less expensive, well established, easier cell observation and measurement and lots of literature are available in them. The 2D cell culture models are used in drug discovery and toxicology, 3D model development and basic research.

The other factors driving the segment growth are, increasing awareness and focus on developing alternatives for animal testing models and increasing investments and fundings for product development and research.
