Pluripotent stem cells are embryonic stem cells that have the potential to form all adult cell types and help in repairing of damaged tissues in the human body. An induced pluripotent stem cells, or iPSCs, are taken from any tissue (usually skin or blood) from a child or an adult and is genetically modified to behave like pluripotent stem cells or embryonic stem cells.
iPSCs market is in emerging state mainly due to its ability to make any cell or tissue the body might need to encounter wide range of diseases like diabetes, spinal cord injury, leukaemia or heart disease, these cells can potentially be customized to provide a perfect genetic match for any patient. Furthermore, these cells are very useful in understanding the earliest stage of human development and offer the opportunity to create customized, rejection-proof cells and tissues for transplantation. Also, government and private sectors are increasing funding and growing industry that focuses on different research work related to iPSCs and people are getting more aware about the stem cells through different organisations. However, factors such as high cost associated with the reprograming of cells, ethical issues and lengthy processes are impeding the market growth. Low efficiency, potential tumor risk and incomplete programming are added factors limiting iPSCs market growth.
