The growing prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer coupled with growth in government initiatives to improve domestic biotechnology industry are the major factors driving the global cell separation market. Furthermore, increasing cell therapy oriented research and development globally and increasing incidences of neurodegenerative diseases are driving the demand for cell therapy to treat the root cause of these diseases. The technological developments in cell based technology such as cell isolations, higher purity yield, time and cost effectiveness are the major factors expected to fuel the global cell separation market over the forecast period.
The global cell separation market is segmented on the basis of technology and application areas of cell separation technologies. The technology segment is bifurcated into gradient centrifugation and separation based on surface markers. Separation based on surface marker technology includes two different technologies which are fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS) and magnetic activated cell sorting (MACS). As of 2013, The magnetic activated cell sorting segment dominates the market owing to the accuracy level and faster results provided. Technologies such as FACS and gradient centrifugation techniques, sieving, panning, chromatography and lab on a chip are currently under development. On the basis of application, the cell separation technology market is segmented into immunology, stem cell research, cancer research and neuroscience research. The cancer research on cell based technology dominates the market during the forecast period owing to the increasing incidences of cancer and other cell based diseases worldwide.
North America dominates the market with the largest share owing to the technological advances such as high versatile cell isolation technologies. Asia Pacific witnesses the fastest growth during the forecast period due to increasing awareness towards chronic diseases and growth in government initiatives to improve cell based technology in this region.
Considering the vast development in cell therapy research, several companies operating in the cell separation technology market are shifting focus from research laboratories to clinical research and transational laboratories to pitch their products such as instruments and reagents. The healthcare institutes and bioscience companies are initiating various strategies such as collaborations, acquisitions and expansions to maintain a competitive environment in the cell separation technology market. Some of the major players in the market include PluriSelect GmbH, Life Technologies (Thermo Fischer Scientific, Inc.) STEMCELL Technologies, Mitenyi Biotec, EMD Millipore and BD Bioscience.
