Rising incidences of chronic diseases worldwide have accelerated the demand for cell-based therapies. Diagnosis and treatment of chronic diseases require an understanding of complex cell behavior. This can be achieved through cell separation technologies, which involve the separation of cells based on specific properties. Governments of emerging economies are actively contributing to the growth of the biotechnology industry. Technological advances and a growing elderly population are other factors, which could add to the growth of this market. Complex cell behaviour characteristics and patent protected magnetic activated cell technology are some of the restraints of the cell separation technologies market. Development of advanced techniques and simple cost effective methods could greatly benefit this market.
Global Cell Separation Technologies Market by Technology
The global cell separation technologies market is segmented into two categories according to technology: Gradient Centrifugation and Surface Markers Separation. Surface Markers Separation is further segmented into Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting and Magnetic Cell Sorting. Surface Markers Separation technology is based on flow cytometry and it enables the separation of cells from a heterogeneous mixture in a quick and quantitative manner. It holds the largest market share in the technology segment.
Global Cell Separation Technologies Market by Application
The global cell separation technologies market is segmented based on its application into different categories such as Oncology research, Neuroscience research, Stem Cell research and Microbiology and Immunology research. The application market is expanding due to rapid advances in technology. Oncology and Stem Cell research are the important application areas for this market and most of the companies focus on these fields.
Global Cell Separation Technologies Market by Geography
Geographically, global cell separation technologies are segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and LAMEA. North America dominates the global cell separation technologies market due to significant research funding, advanced techniques of research and better research infrastructure. Europe, which is close behind America, is another leading market for global cell separation technologies. Asia-Pacific is the fastest emerging market for global cell separation technologies due to the governments’ initiative to promote the biotechnology industry and a rise in medical tourism.
Key players within the global cell separation technologies market include Mitenyi Biotec GmbH, , BD Bioscience, STEMCELL Technologies Terumo BCT, pluriSelect GmbH, EMD Millipore and Life Technologies. There are very few players in cell separation technologies protecting major technologies with patents and thus, limitingthe entry of others.
