Cell-based Assay Market Overview:
Cell-based Assay Market was valued at $3,625 million in 2016, and is expected to reach $10,618 million in 2023, registering a CAGR of 16.5% from 2017 to 2023. Cell-based assays encompass a variety of assays that measure cellular parameters such as cell toxicity, proliferation, production of markers, activation of specific signaling pathways, motility, and changes in morphology.
These assays rely on reporter gene assays, which have high sensitivity owing to signal amplification of cell-signaling cascades, and thus are ideal for miniaturization. Cell-based assays are widely applied in high-throughput screening (HTS) formats.
The demand for cell-based assay has increased significantly over the past few years, owing to surge in cell-based applications in drug discovery and rise in technological advancements in cell-based assays methodologies. In addition, adoption of high-throughput screening methods and increase in R&D investment further drive the market growth. However, high costs associated with these assays and lack of skilled professionals hamper this growth. Furthermore, surge in adoption of label-free cell-based assays and untapped potential in developing countries offer significant opportunities to the market players.
