U.S. personal automated & closed cell therapy processing systems market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The global pharmaceutical business has benefited greatly from automation in cell therapy processing or manufacturing systems. The cells are chosen, isolated, modified, and expanded as part of the manufacturing process for cell therapies. In this intricate process, even a small mistake might result in incorrect cell infusion. The automated and closed cell therapy processing methods reduce the danger of the finished product. Automation in cell therapy processing lowers the risk of contamination brought on by manual labor. The size of cell operations is improved by the automated and closed cell treatment processing system by lowering the possibility of mistakes during bioprocessing.

The increasing prevalence of cancer globally has increased the demand for automated and closed-cell therapeutic processing systems. According to the Global Cancer Observatory study, 4.39 million new cases of cancer were estimated in Europe in 2020. The fully automated cell treatment processing systems are created to provide powerful processing with improved therapies for largely incurable diseases. The leading firms in the global market are contributing to the expansion by offering cutting-edge platforms for the cell therapy manufacturing process.In recent years, there has been massive growth in clinical trials associated with advanced therapies.

This growth has led to an increase in demand for advanced and automated technologies to achieve high throughput and yield. This can be attributed to the fact that automated and closed systems offer better cell handling capabilities and reduce the possibility of errors during bioprocessing.The availability of a range of systems to offer both automated integrated workflow solutions and partial automation is expected to spur the adoption rate in the space. Furthermore, the system also enables continuous monitoring of controlled therapy processing, which is being conducted for the development of new therapeutic platforms.

In addition, integrated intelligent algorithms facilitate high precision. Market players are actively engaged in the development of infrastructure to leverage the production of automated systems.For instance, in June 2021, the collaboration of Lonza and Cell Point announced its plan to utilize the Cocoon platform for the development of T-cell-based therapies. The project is being conducted to provide a proof of concept for Point-of-Care (POC) production to optimize the supply chain operations. Also, as automated systems can enhance analytical testing and facilitate quality control, the systems are expected to gain acceptance during the forecast period.

Workflow Insights

Based on workflow, the market is segmented into separation, expansion, apheresis, fill-finish, cryopreservation, and others. The expansion segment accounted for the largest revenue share of around 35.0% in 2022. The growth is majorly attributed to the presence of a substantial number of products offered under this segment. Moreover, increasing partnerships among market players for the adoption and application of systems offered under this segment are driving its growth. For instance, Angiocrine Bioscience has implemented Terumo BCT’s quantum cell expansion system to accelerate its cell therapy research.

The separation segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. The cell separation process is carried out across various cellular experiments, such as molecular analysis, cellular genetic modification, production of hybridomas, and other cell research & analysis-related applications.A growing number of research activities for these applications in academic universities and other research settings is anticipated to accelerate segment growth. Apart from expansion and separation, the workflow segment comprises apheresis, fill-finish, cryopreservation, and others.

Cryopreservation and apheresis workflows are also projected to register considerable growth owing to the increasing awareness and acceptance of regenerative medicines.In February 2023, Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult, a UK-based company, announced its involvement in the development of a sizable new life science campus in Stevenage. The company has set aside over USD 900 million to build the new facility. The new campus is created to meet the high demand from the life sciences industry.

Type Insights

Based on type, the market is segmented into stem cell therapy and non-stem cell therapy. The non-stem cell therapy segment accounted for the largest revenue sharein 2022 and is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. An increasing number of product launches for non-stem cell therapy applications is expected to drive segment growth. Furthermore, the success of CAR-T therapies has directed investment toward non-stem cell therapy development, thereby driving segment revenue.In February, IASO Biotherapeutics, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company that develops cutting-edge cell therapies, declared that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had granted Fast Track (FT) Designation and Regenerative Medicine Advanced Therapy (RMAT) Designation to its new BCMA CAR-T CT103A (Equecabtagene Autoleucel) drug. Medication can be used to treat Relapsed/RefractoryMultiple Myeloma (RRMM), a severe kind of blood cancer that has ceased responding to cell treatment.

Companies are extensively engaging in partnerships and collaborations to develop new regenerative medicines for the treatment of chronic conditions. Such research projects majorly focus on applications of non-stem cells, consequently driving the non-stem cell therapy segment growth. Moreover, the growing emphasis on cell and tissue-based engineering due to massive clinical potential is also expected to accelerate the segment growth during the forecast period.The stem cell therapy segment is anticipated to witness a significant growth rate during the forecast period. Increasing awareness about therapeutic benefits offered by stem cell therapies and rising research activities associated with drug efficacy and disease understanding is expected to have a constructive impact on the growth of the stem cell therapy segment.

Scale Insights

Based on scales, the market is segmented into pre-commercial/R&D scale and commercial scale. The pre-commercial/R&D scale segment held the largest revenue share of 72.3% in 2022.At present, the market is relatively niche due to a limited number of products. Moreover, most companies are introducing their products only for research purposes. For instance, Cellares Inc., a cell therapy manufacturing company, is planning to introduce its automated cell therapy machine in 2023. Such factors are expected to drive the pre-commercial/R&D scale segment growth over the forecast period.In addition, the adoption of automated systems by research institutes due to the growing number of clinical trials for cell therapies is also projected to accelerate segment growth.
