The contract manufacturing services market for stem cells is expected to be worth over USD 2.5 billion by 2030, claims Roots Analysis

Published: August 2019

Driven by a robust and growing pipeline of stem cell therapies, the demand for development and manufacturing services for such advanced product candidates is anticipated to increase beyond the capabilities of innovator companies alone

Roots Analysis has announced the addition of the Stem Cell Manufacturing Market report to its list of offerings. 

Owing to a highly regulated production environment and the need for state-of-the-art technologies and equipment, it is difficult for innovators to establish in-house expertise for the large-scale manufacturing of stem cell therapies. As a result, stem cell therapy developers are increasingly relying on contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs) for their product development and manufacturing needs.

Key Market Insights 

Over 80 CMOs presently claim to provide manufacturing services for stem cells therapies
The market landscape is fragmented, featuring a mix of companies of all sizes; however, small and mid-sized companies represent 70% of the overall number of industry stakeholders. It is worth highlighting that over 50% of the CMOs claim to be capable of accommodating both clinical and commercial scales of operation.

100+ strategic alliances have been inked since 2015
In fact, nearly 60% of the abovementioned deals were established post 2016. Majority of these agreements were observed to be focused on the manufacturing of various types of stem cells. It is worth highlighting that the maximum number of partnerships related to stem cell therapies were reported in 2018.

More than 80,000+ patients were reported to have been enrolled in stem cell therapy related trials, since 2010
As a result, the manufacturing demand for such therapies can be anticipated to grow significantly over the next decade. The report features detailed projections of the future clinical and commercial demand for stem cell manufacturing, based on parameters, such as target patient population, dosing frequency, dose strength, source of stem cells, type of stem cells and key geographies.

Currently, there are more than 100 facilities dedicated to stem cell manufacturing 
The maximum share of the installed capacity belongs to large (more than 1,000 employees) and very large (more than 5,000 employees) companies. The report provides a detailed capacity analysis, taking into consideration the reported manufacturing capacities of industry stakeholders, and offering estimates on the distribution of the global contract manufacturing capacity for stem cell therapies, by company size, scale of operation and geography. 

By 2030, North America and Europe are anticipated to capture over 70% of the market share
Overall, the market is anticipated to witness an annualized growth rate of more than 20% over the next decade. In the long-term, the opportunity is expected to be well distributed across key stakeholder companies, which offer services for a diverse range of allogenic and autologous stem cell therapies.
