Market Size & Trends

The global cell therapy human raw materials market size was estimated at USD 2.82 billion in 2023 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.32% from 2024 to 2030. The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, & autoimmune disorders, growing demand for regenerative medicines & personalized medicines, rising R&D activities, and growing investments are anticipated to boost the cell therapy human raw materials market over the forecast period.

U.S. Cell Therapy Human Raw Materials Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the market. One of the primary challenges stemmed from the widespread disruption of supply chains and manufacturing processes. The intricate network involved in the production of cell-based therapies relies heavily on the seamless flow of raw materials, and the pandemic-induced disruptions led to shortages and delays in manufacturing timelines. Lockdowns and travel restrictions hindered the transportation of raw materials, causing disruptions in the availability of critical components. In addition, the pandemic-induced disruptions had a ripple effect on research and clinical trials related to cell therapies. Many ongoing projects were temporarily halted or experienced significant slowdowns.

The increasing adoption of regenerative medicine has become a driving force behind the growing field of cell therapy, impelling the demand for specific human raw materials essential to the innovative medical approach. Regenerative medicine, which emphasizes harnessing the body's healing capabilities and using cell-based therapies to address various diseases, has garnered widespread attention & support. This heightened interest stems from the potential to revolutionize treatment methodologies and provide novel solutions for conditions with limited therapeutic options.

In October 2023, the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) granted USD 2 million to the Keck School of Medicine of USC to enhance its recently established cGMP Laboratory. This state-of-the-art facility is designed to advance early-stage research into clinically viable cell & gene therapies. The funds from the CIRM grant are expected to support the development of advanced technological capabilities, streamlined operations, and rigorous protocols necessary for the efficient translation of these therapies from the laboratory to clinical applications. Similarly, in August 2023, the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) granted USD 32.3 million to researchers at City of Hope to fund three groundbreaking phase 1 clinical trials. These trials aim to assess novel cell and gene therapy treatments for patients dealing with HIV, acute myeloid leukemia, and severe aplastic anemia.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market growth stage is high, and pace of the market growth is accelerating. The market is characterized by a high degree of innovation owing to the rapid technological advancements driven by factors such as the use of CRISPR/Cas9* genome editing and the generation of genetically modified mouse.

The market is also characterized by a high level of merger and acquisition (M&A) activity undertaken by the leading players. This is due to several factors, the rising focus on increasing the company’s products & services portfolio, the need to consolidate in a rapidly growing market, and the increasing strategic importance of cell therapy. Several companies are undertaking this strategy to strengthen their portfolio. For instance, in January 2022, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc., acquired PeproTech, Inc., a major recombinant protein manufacturer. This acquisition strengthened the stem cells portfolio of Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc.

Cell Therapy Human Raw Materials Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market is also subject to increasing regulatory scrutiny. Several regulatory and government authorities are focusing on establishing stringent guidelines for contamination control, biosafety, cell line authentication, and other factors. The growing focus towards cell therapy is projected to boost over the period of time.

Several companies are expanding their cell therapy -based products. Thus, the product expansion in this industry is significant. Companies are including product launches specifically targeting MSCs that are anticipated to drive market growth. For instance, in July 2023, PromoCell GmbH the company introduced a new product, PromoExQ MSC Growth Medium XF, for cell therapy manufacturing.

Product Insights

The cell culture supplements segment held the largest market share of 27.84% in 2023. The segment is divided into proteins, growth factors, nucleotides, and other supplements. Due to the rising demand for animal-free cell-based therapies, the segment is anticipated to grow during the forecast period. Numerous market participants are actively exploring untapped opportunities in the market through initiatives such as the development of new products & business expansion. Furthermore, growth factors hold the largest market share among cell culture supplements. Cell culture supplements provide a means to achieve serum-free conditions while maintaining the necessary growth factors and nutrients for robust cell growth. For instance, a study published in 2020 reported on the sequential delivery of cryogel-released growth factors & cytokines, which accelerated wound healing and improved tissue regeneration.

The cell culture media segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Cell culture media provides a controlled and optimized environment with essential nutrients, growth factors, and other critical components necessary for the survival & proliferation of cells. This controlled environment allows researchers and manufacturers to optimize conditions, ensuring the reproducibility & scalability of cell cultures for therapeutic applications. In addition, numerous companies are making substantial investments in the development of cell culture media to enhance the effectiveness of the cell therapy process. For instance, in May 2023, Lonza introduced TheraPEAK T-VIVO Cell Culture Medium to expedite the development of cell therapy.

End Use Insights

Based on end use, the market is segmented into biotechnology & pharmaceutical companies, CROs & CMOs, and others. The biopharmaceutical & pharmaceutical companies segment dominated the market with a share in 2023. This can be attributed to the increasing investments in R&D activities, rising demand for cell-based therapies, and the presence of advanced healthcare infrastructure. Owing to this, companies invest heavily in R&D, leveraging their expertise in biotechnology to discover & produce novel cell therapies. For instance, in May 2023, NewBiologix secured USD 50 million in funding to propel the development of its innovative technology platform dedicated to advancing the manufacturing processes of gene and cell therapies.

Global Cell Therapy Human Raw Materials Market share and size, 2023

The CROs & CMOs segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Contract Research Organizations (CROs) offer valuable services in preclinical & clinical research, facilitating the development of cell therapies by providing expertise in trial design, patient recruitment, and regulatory compliance. On the other hand, Contract Manufacturing Organizations (CMOs) offer better and cost-effective manufacturing solutions to biopharmaceutical companies lacking the expertise. Thus, due to the provision of highly specialized services, CROs and CMOs have emerged as key players in the end use segment.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market and accounted for 46.05 % share in 2023. The region's dominance can be attributed to supportive government regulations, growing demand for innovative therapeutics, and increasing efforts by key market players to advance cell-based therapy products for treating a range of chronic disorders. In addition, many leading companies involved in producing and commercializing cell-based products are based in North America, which is projected to boost the demand for cell therapy human raw materials, contributing to market growth. Moreover, collaborations between key players and smaller biotechnology firms intensify competition, as companies aim to strengthen their positions in the rapidly evolving cell therapy market.
