The global mesenchymal stem cells market is valued at USD 1,335.1 Million in 2017 and is expected to grow at CAGR of 7.0% during the forecast period 2018 to 2026. Mesenchymal Stem Cells are considered as adult stem cells, that belong to humans’ skeletal tissues, such as fate, bone, and cartilage. These stem cells are multipotent which can produce specialized cells but not all types of cells and these cells are isolated from humans and animal sources. As these cells are multipotent, they have high capacity to regenerate or self-renew while maintaining enormous therapeutic potential for tissue repair.
New opportunities in the mesenchymal stem cells market are expected in the form of mesenchymal stem cells usage in treatment of liver and cardiovascular diseases, cancer as per initial pre-clinical studies. The industry is primarily driven by increasing elderly population and increasing incidences of cancer, and other chronic diseases globally. Additionally, supportive government regulations that promote the use of mesenchymal stem cells as an effective treatment option, and mesenchymal cells to be better alternative for knee replacement are factors which have stimulated the market growth. However, the higher costs associated and lack of therapeutic applications of these stem cells, and dependency on various political scenarios are factors which might create challenges for the mesenchymal stem cell market.
Global Mesenchymal Stem Cells Market (USD Million) & Y-o-Y Growth (%)
The global Mesenchymal Stem Cells industry is segmented on the basis of source, application, and geography.
