BCC Research (http://www.bccresearch.com) reveals in its new report, CELL-BASED ASSAYS: TECHNOLOGIES AND GLOBAL MARKETS, the global cell-based assays market is expected to grow to nearly $21.6 billion by 2018, with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.4%. The ADME (absorption, degradation, metabolism, excretion) segment is the fastest moving subsegment with a CAGR of 15%
Cell-based assays have emerged as a more relevant alternative to biochemical assays involving the use of purified proteins especially in the field of drug discovery.
Drug discovery for validating drug targets/lead profiling assays is the largest segment in this market in terms of revenue and is expected to grow to $15 billion by 2018. However, ADME and toxicology testing, a critical component to drug development, is the fastest moving segment, growing at a tremendous CAGR of 15%. This segment is expected to reach a global value of nearly $4.6 billion in 2018.
"This market is being driven by new technology innovations and high-throughput screening (HTS) systems," says BCC Research biotechnology analyst Ushu Nagavarapu. "In addition, a need exists to discover the functions of different proteins which can further help in potent drug development. By using bioassays in automated systems, characterization of a large number of drug targets and candidates is possible and the drug-discovery process can be made more efficient."
CELL-BASED ASSAYS: TECHNOLOGIES AND GLOBAL MARKETS provides a detailed overview and thorough analysis of the present and future global market for cell-based techniques.
