Market Analysis

Importance and Scope

Stem Cell Research and Regenerative Medicine” is an important field since human development takes place through stem cells. The complete understanding of their unique properties and control mechanisms can give an insight into early human development. Metabolic or physiological diseases such as cancer are thought to result from the abnormal behavior of cells. This means that a clear understanding of where things go 'wrong' in stem cell division can give a clear picture about cancer and can aid in realizing the ways to prevent the dysfunctional changes in the body or to introduce effective ways to treat them with targeted drugs. Stem cell application in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering is an alternative therapy for various diseases and the on-going extensive research in this field is assumed to further steer the medical applications of stem cells in upcoming years.

Why Osaka?

Osaka is one of the largest cities in Japan packed with a number of amusing places and a massive economy with a GDP of 96.31 trillion yen. Osaka Prefecture is a myriad of 410,000 business places, out of which 190,000 are in Osaka itself. 425 stock exchange companies are headquartered in the city. Shinsaibashi district, present in the midst of the city, is a perfect place for shopping and culinary. While in Osaka, one should not miss the capturing view from floating garden observatory at Umeda sky building, which is one of the highest buildings in the world. The city is a host of various parks, stadiums, temple and historical places.

Market Value

Stem cell applications have currently emerged as a rapidly diversifying field with the potential to address the global organ shortage issue and comprises of tissue regeneration and organ replacement. The global tissue engineering and regeneration market are expected to grow to nearly $56.9 billion in 2019, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.3%.

Global Regenerative medicines market is projected to reach $ 30,237 million by 2022. North America led the global market in 2015 and is expected to remain dominant during 2015-2022. Global stem cell therapy market is growing at a CAGR of 39.5% from 2015 to 2020, to reach $330 million by 2020.

The major factors boosting the market growth include technological advancements in tissue and organ regeneration, increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and trauma emergencies, a prominent potential of nanotechnology, and the emergence of stem cell technology. In addition, increasing incidence of degenerative diseases and the shortage of organs for transplantation are expected to boost the growth of the market. The prominent potential of regenerative medicine to replace, repair, and regenerate damaged tissues and organs has boosted the market growth. Moreover, utilization of nano-materials in wound care, drug delivery, and immunomodulation has opened growth avenues for the regenerative medicines market. However, stringent regulatory barriers and a high cost of the treatment are likely to hinder the market growth.

What are some of the Major Drivers for the Stem Cells Market?

The key driver for the global stem cells market is the increasing government support across the world. As widespread incorporation of stem cell therapy allows a nation to significantly improve the overall healthcare scenario, countries in North America and Western Europe have provided solid support to stem cell research. The acceptance of stem cell therapy in emerging regions is still lagging behind due to the lack of advanced medical infrastructure to adopt stem cell therapy, but the steady improvement of the healthcare sector in countries such as India and China is likely to be a major growth driver for the global stem cells market. The increasing prevalence of neurodegenerative disorders is another major driver for the global demand for stem cells. Neural tissue can’t be regenerated or replaced as easily as structural tissues, and the ability of stem cells to develop into human cells provides the perfect avenue for treatment of neurodegenerative conditions.

Stem cell Market Segmentation and Industry Structure

Stem cells are widely used in drug discovery and medicine and in regenerative medicine. In 2016, approximately 90% of the revenue was generated from regenerative medicine owing to the large unmet medical needs, regenerative medicines used in the chronic disease treatment of Parkinson’s and Huntington’s.
