Recently, the therapeutic application of stem cells has been attracting attention worldwide. It’s seen from a growing number of clinical trials and research in this field together with the increase of companies providing medical services, products, devices in the field of stem cells. There is also a significant rise in the number of clinical application of stem cells and the advent of new treatments for chronic diseases are estimated to enhance the growth of the global stem cells market in the next few years.

The research showed that estimations of the global stem cell market size and growth range dramatically, mainly because of lack of a unified approach for the market scope assessment.

Segmented by-product, the stem cells market presently constitutes mainly adult stem cells as they help in repairing damaged tissues via cell division and offer advantages like ease of harvesting, high acceptance in the human body and effectiveness in tissue generation, minimal ethical issues, and long-term renewal property associated with stem cells utility. At the same time the use of embryonic stem cells for research and therapeutic purposes, though being with higher totipotency and indefinite lifespan, as compared to the adult stem, is restricted and prohibited in many countries throughout the world, due to some ethical constraints. As a result, 98% of clinical trials are conducted with adult stem cells.

Autologous stem cell therapy holds a slightly larger market in comparison with allogenic. The trend to move to allogeneic is strongly driven by the pharma industry which prefers one source for manufacturing multiple doses.

The drug discovery application dominates the market, in terms of revenue. North America generates the highest revenue and is expected to be the leading region globally, whereas the Asia Pacific market is also expected to witness significant market growth in the coming years.

The global mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) market share is dramatically smaller than the hematopoietic stem cell (HSC). While market shares of both grow with comparable pace, MSC, in particular, is experiencing a significant surge in clinical trials in the last years and in 2019 especially. This trend is even clearer considering the number of trials in the recruitment stage throughout the phases – in recent years, more trials are being conducted in MSC.

According to our analysis, the more mature HSC market will keep the growing trend until 2025 due to a significantly large number of started clinical trials. However, the analysis of the clinical trials shows that a majority of MSC involved trials are currently on recruitment stages and conducted mostly for Phase I, which suggests a potential for a higher growth rate of MSC market in the upcoming years.

In 2019 there seems to be a consolidation of both HSC and MSC to a similar number of clinical trials, due to significant growth of the MSC market. This suggests that the number of MSC clinical trials in the coming years will be higher than those in HSC.

MSC is a “younger” technology, full of potential and in the future can be used to treat more indications than HSC. MSC will be trialed for a broader number of indications, as the technology matures and the number of trials increases.

Asia is the region with the largest number of started MSC trials taking over 40% and showing permanent growth, while the USA share in the world MSC trials is growing within last 5 years demonstrating a leap in 2016 from 10% to 30% of worldwide trials. As for the HSC clinical trials arena, more than a half (almost 60%) of the clinical trials nowadays are started in the USA, around 17% – in Europe, and around 17% in Asia (mostly in China).

Comparing the data on market value forecast and clinical trials, we can suggest that the more mature HSC market will keep the growing trend until 2025. However, the analysis of the clinical trials shows that a majority of trials involving MSC are currently on recruitment stages and conducted mostly for Phase I, which suggests more growth potential in the years after 2025.

In the current technological and business environment, we expect that investment in MSC and related products can potentially boost growth, revenues, and profits even more than equivalent investments in HSC.
