Primary Cells Market : Rapid Growth in the Biotechnology and Biopharmaceutical Industries

Primary cells are cells isolated from human or animal tissues. These cells are ideal models for cancer biomarker discovery and drug screening. They are also used to understand the biochemical pathways of cellular interactions.

[114 Pages Report] The primary cells market is expected to reach USD 1,107.3 million by 2023 from USD 666.0 million in 2017 at a CAGR of 8.5% from 2018–2023. The base year for this study is 2017 and the forecast period is 2018–2023.

In cancer research, primary cells are often exposed to heavy radiation doses, chemicals, and viruses, which transforms these cells into cancer cells through genetic mutations and the introduction of oncogenes. In this way, the molecular-level mechanism and cause of cancer, as well as the altered signaling pathways of cancerous cells, can be studied.

Primary human cells have a wide range of advantages over in vitro cell lines; they provide reliable tissue-specific responses in a biologically relevant microenvironment. Drug responses in cell lines may not provide false responses in a cellular context. Moreover, primary human cells are cost-effective and help in reducing expenditure on animal models required for in vivo studies. Pre-screened primary cells help in representing signaling in vivo very closely.

Based on type, the market is segmented into human and animal primary cells. The human primary cells segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to the high adoption of human primary cells in the development of novel cancer therapies. Human primary cells are also extensively used for studying human cancerous cell models, in toxicology studies, and in the cosmetic industry.

On the basis of end user, the market is segmented into life science research companies and research institutes. The life science research companies segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The high growth rate can be attributed to the high adoption of primary cells in cell-based experiments and cancer research in life science research companies as well as the increasing number of R&D facilities globally.
