Organ On Chip Overview

The global organ-on-a-chip market is anticipated to grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21% during the forecast period, mainly driven by the rise in research activity within the pharmaceutical industry. It is a well-known fact that almost 90% of the therapeutic interventions fail in clinical trials, resulting in significant economic losses to the pharmaceutical industry. The lack of effective preclinical prediction of drug responses in humans is one of the various reasons for drug’s failure to get approved. Animal testing for preclinical evaluation of drugs sometimes fails to identify toxicity signs caused by a drug in humans. Moreover, these clinical trials are quite expensive, time-consuming and are associated with several ethical concerns. In order to reform the drug approval process and use non-animal testing models for preclinical evaluations, the US democrats and republicans introduced the FDA Modernization Act in 2021. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has also declared the termination of the funds granted for the studies on mammals by 2035. As a result, several pharmaceutical companies have opted to modernize their conventional testing methods in order to cope up with the increasing limitations associated with animal models. One such innovative technology, 'organ-on-chip’ has the potential to transform the drug discovery process by simulating the human physiological and functional environment on a microfluidic system. The use of such novel testing models in drug discovery and genotoxicity testing has been steadily increasing and the global organ-on-a-chip market is anticipated to witness significant market growth during the forecast period.
