Cell Banking Outsourcing Market Dynamics  

Cell Banking Outsourcing Market growth is driven by the increase in biopharmaceutical production, rise in research on cell and gene therapies, rise in chronic disease, intense need to develop novel therapies, rise in awareness of cell banking, among others. Rise in applications of stem cell is expected to drive the growth in the forecast period

Stem cell technology is a speedily developing technology that plays a major role in regenerative medicine, as it also serves the disciplines of tissue engineering, cellular therapeutics, developmental cell biology, gene therapy, chemical biology, and nanotechnology. Additionally, in September 2021, LifeCell International, a stem cell bank and provider of reproductive genetic testing services, revealed that it had raised Rs 225 crore from OrbiMed Asia Partners IV, one of the leading healthcare investment group. The existing LifeCell founders will also participate in this round by investing Rs 30 crore. Such fund raisings will lead to adoption of cell banking outsourcing services, driving the market growth.

In addition, in August 2021, REPROCELL have signed a strategic collaboration agreement with TEXCELL JAPAN, a TEXCELL Group Company for GMP iPSC (Good Manufacturing Practices - induced pluripotent stem cells) - Master Cell Banks (MCB) Manufacturing. With this agreement REPROCELL can outsource a portion of the MCB manufacturing process to TEXCELL's GMP facility, which has been approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), allowing for the establishment of GMP iPSC MCB. Such partnerships will therefore lead to drive the growth of this market due to adoption of services.

Furthermore, according to the news published in April 2022, titled 'Utilizing stem cells to support and aid cancer therapy', stem cells have demonstrated their ability to improve cancer treatment by repairing cells after heavy therapy, creating immune cells, and acting as therapeutic carriers. Such rise in applications of stem cell will boost the growth of cell banking outsourcing services, driving the market growth.

High cost of cell therapies, legal and challenging issues during cell collection is likely to hamper the market growth

The cost of stem cell therapy varies depending on the number of injections and the complexity of the treatment. Stem cell therapy can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $6,000 for a single injection. Some patients may require multiple injections which may increase the cost of the treatment to $25,000 or more.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Covid-19 has significantly impacted the cell banking outsourcing market due to the pause of different stem cell transplant practices across the world. For instance, according to the study published in Bone Marrow Transplantation, titled 'Impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the use and release of cord blood units facilitated by the French Cord Blood Banks Network: on behalf of the Agency of Biomedicine, Eurocord and the French Society of Bone Marrow Transplant and Cell Therapy (SFGM-TC)' in October 2021, to curb COVID-19 spread, national lockdowns, international border closures, airplane and rail circulation restrictions were implemented both internationally and within France, making stem cell procurement from foreign and national donors more difficult. In addition, transplant teams had to deal with unexpected events involving virus exposure in donors and harvest workers, which were likely to affect stem cell clearance for donation.

Cell Banking Outsourcing Market Segment Analysis

The induced pluripotent stem cell banking segment is expected to hold the largest share in this market segment

The pluripotent stem cell banking segment is expected to have a major share is the cell banking outsourcing services market and is expected to do the same over the forecast period. Human pluripotent stem cells, such as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), provide unprecedented opportunities for cell therapies to treat intractable diseases and injuries. iPSC is created from skin or blood cells that have been reprogrammed into an embryonic-like pluripotent state, allowing for the generation of an infinite supply of any type of human cell required for therapeutic applications. According to the study published in Current Protocols, titled 'Autologous Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell-Based Cell Therapies: Promise, Progress, and Challenges' in March 2021, human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have promised, they can be used as a starting material for autologous or patient-specific stem cell-based therapy. The positive results confirm the claimed benefit of an autologous approach, a cell therapy product that can engraft without risk of immunological rejection, obviating the requirement for medication and its side effects. Such promising results of iPSCs will therefore lead to drive the market growth due to the adoption of cell banking outsourcing services for iPSCs, driving the segment growth.

In addition, in September 2021, I Peace, Inc., a Palo Alto-based biotech company specialising on induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technology, has expanded its personalised iPSC banking service. In Japan, I Peace debuted its clinical-grade individualised iPSC banking service in 2020 and has already banked the iPSCs of numerous people. Such expansion of iPSC banking services will lead to rise in adoption of iPSC banking, driving this segment growth.

Moreover, rise in research funding for iPSC research in the United States is also expected to propel the market growth. For instance, according to the report published by the National Institute of Health in June 2021, the estimated funding for induced pluripotent stem cells in the United States for the year 2019 and 2020 was USD 607 million and USD 657 million respectively. Such a huge investment on iPSC will lead to rise in adoption of pluripotent stem cell services, driving the market growth.
