Live Cell Encapsulation Market Overview

The live cell encapsulation market is estimated to be worth $81 million in 2019 and is expected to grow at CAGR of 21% during the forecast period. Chronic disorders, such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease, obesity, and certain types of mental health problems, are considered among the leading causes of death and disability across the globe.

According to a report published by the Center for Managing Chronic Disease at the University of Michigan in 2018, more than 50% of the global population lives with some form of chronic illness. In 2018, the global prevalence of diabetes (considered to be one of the fastest-growing clinical conditions) was estimated to be around 425 million; likewise, around 450 million people worldwide are suffering from some form of mental health problem and / or neurological disorder. In addition, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported that different forms of cancers account for about 0.6 million deaths annually in the US alone.

Over the years, advances in cell biology and regenerative medicine have led to the development of various cell-based therapies, which claim to possess the potential to address several unmet needs related to the treatment of different chronic clinical conditions. In fact, experts believe that mesenchymal stem cells may have the potential to improve patients' resistance to the ongoing novel COVID-19 infections. However, there are certain evident challenges, such as scarcity of viable donors, inherent immunogenicity, complications related to supply of oxygen / essential nutrients to grafted cells, drug delivery limitations, and the need for frequent re-administration of cells, which have so far restricted the use of cell-based interventions.

Extensive research on cell encapsulation strategies have enabled the development of a variety of technologies capable of confining therapeutic entities within biocompatible matrices / carriers. Encapsulated therapy products offer a myriad of advantages, and have been shown to be capable of addressing existing concerns related to cell sourcing, obviating the need for complex surgical procedures, and enabling targeted drug delivery without the need for immunosuppressive follow-on regimens. In fact, since 2013, over 3,000 patents have been published related to the aforementioned type of therapy, indicating the rapid pace of R&D activities in live cell encapsulation market. Stakeholders have also received significant support from both private and public investors. However, the commercial success of such products is still dependent on ongoing clinical studies, as no such therapy has yet been approved.
