The COVID-19 pandemic has imposed a great burden on the healthcare sector as most chronic therapies were postponed and all outpatient treatments were delayed or restricted during the COVID-19 pandemic to lower the risk of viral transmission. Several studies on cell therapies have demonstrated tstrated their potential to modulate the immune response by controlling cell function and downregulating inflammatory cytokines, which aids in lowering COVID-19 patients' mortality and morbidity rates. For instance, according to an article published in Molecular Biomedical, in February 2022, stem cells have demonstrated promising results in clinical studies for treating COVID-19 disease by altering the immune system. In addition, as per an article published in Frontiers in Cell and Development Biology, in September 2021, it has been observed that human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived cellular and organoid models provide useful platforms for in vitro simulation of viral life cycles and drug screening to prevent coronavirus reemergence. Also, these iPSC-derived models can recapitulate the functions and physiology of various human cell types and assemble complex microenvironments, hence increasing the study efficiency of viral infection mechanisms, and mimicking the actual host-virus interaction. Thus, with the increased use of stem cells, the market has witnessed significant growth during the pandemic.

Factors such as the increase in R&D activities in stem cell therapies and the surge in the adoption of personalized medicines are expected to boost market growth over the forecast period.

The rise in the prevalence of personalized medicines for various disease treatments is expected to increase the company's focus to accelerate the adoption of induced pluripotent stem cells in developing therapies. For instance, as per an article published in the Journal of Personalized Medicine, in August 2022, it has been observed that iPSCs generated from individuals with a variety of monogenic and polygenic disorders, provide a valuable resource for developing individualized models of psychiatric diseases that help researchers to better understand the underlying molecular and cellular pathways. The same source also stated that the researchers discovered biomarkers, including synaptic connectivity and morphology changes as well as specific gene expression, for the bupropion response in lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCLs) from major depressive disorder (MDD) that had been reprogrammed to iPSC and differentiated into cortical neurons. Thus, the utilization of LCLs in obtaining several biomarkers is expected to promote personalized treatment options for patients suffering from MDD, thereby bolstering market growth.

Moreover, the growing company's focus on adopting various business strategies such as agreements, collaborations, and other initiatives is expected to increase the utilization and production of iPSCs in clinical research, thereby contributing to market growth. For instance, in January 2022, Century Therapeutics signed a research collaboration and license agreement with Bristol Myers Squibb to develop and commercialize up to four induced pluripotent stem cell-derived, engineered natural killer cell ('iNK') and/or T cell ('iT') programs for hematologic malignancies and solid tumors. Also, in November 2021, Ncardia, a human-induced pluripotent stem cell company, signed a USD 60 million funding deal with Kiniciti to expand discovery and commercial production services for stem cells.

Therefore, owing to the aforementioned factors, such as increasing company focus on utilizing induced pluripotent stem cells in the R&D of drugs and other therapies as well as growing demand for personalized medicines, the studied market is anticipated to grow over the forecast period. However, the lack of awareness regarding stem cell therapies and the high cost of treatment is likely to hinder the growth of the induced pluripotent stem cells market over the forecast period.

Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs) Market Trends

Regenerative Medicine Segment is Expected to Witness Significant Growth Over the Forecast Period

iPSCs are the cells that are reprogrammed from somatic cells using different transcription factors and these cells possess unique properties of self-renewal and can differentiate into a variety of cell lineages. In regenerative medicine, damaged or degenerating tissues are restored by being produced in labs with the aid of iPSCs and then transplanted to the location of the damage or degeneration. Additionally, iPSC offers several advantages over other stem cell types in models of regenerative medicine and wound healing as they are produced from adult somatic cells rather than embryos. Thus, iPSCs are not associated with the ethical concerns that surround the use of embryonic stem cells.

The regenerative medicines segment is expected to witness significant growth in the induced pluripotent stem cells market over the forecast period owing to the factors such as the rising adoption of iPSCs in regenerative medicine research and increasing company activities.

The increasing number of research studies related to induced pluripotent stem cells is the key factor driving the market growth. For instance, according to a study published by Indiana University, in May 2022, the researchers at Indiana University School of Medicine in collaboration with the University of Alabama at Birmingham and five other institutions investigated novel regenerative medicine techniques to better manage vascular health complications, especially in a retinal vessel, caused by type 2 diabetes. The results show that a specific mesoderm subgroup formed from hiPSCs can be safely, effectively, and persistently derived for use as a new therapeutic to rescue ischemic tissues and repair blood vessels in people with vascular disorders. Additionally, the same source stated that the researchers genetically transformed diabetic and non-diabetic peripheral blood cells into hiPSCs, maturing the cells into unique blood vessel reparative cells, for the multi-site early phase study. With the restoration of vascular perfusion, the effects of injection into animal models of type 2 diabetic mice (T2D) retinal dysfunction demonstrated a considerable improvement in visual acuity and electroretinograms. Thus, the iPSCs' results in treating diabetic patients' retinal impairment have increased their use in study design and cell therapy for human disorders, hence propelling market growth.

Furthermore, the increasing government funding to promote the production of stem cell-based therapies for treating various diseases as well as establishing stem cell research centers are expected to increase its adoption, hence propelling the market growth. For instance, as per the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care, in March 2022, the Stem Cell Therapies (SCT) Mission invested USD 150 million in the development of novel, secure, and efficient stem cell therapies to increase health outcomes. The mission provides funding for initiatives that develop innovative, safe, and efficient medical therapies that enhance patient well-being, workforce productivity, and the development of commercial stem cell products.

Moreover, the rising company activities in developing regenerative medicines using iPSC are also contributing to segment growth. For instance, in June 2022, SQZ Biotechnology Company generated dopaminergic (DA) neurons from human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), using the company's proprietary Cell Squeeze technology, through the single-step delivery of six RNA that encodes for specific fate-determining transcription factors. The new findings contribute to the company's recent presentations on regenerative medicine research and support its NIH-funded initiative to develop cell replacement therapeutics for neurological diseases including Parkinson's disease.

Therefore, owing to the aforementioned factors such as growing government funding for stem cell research and the rising number of research studies, the studied segment is expected to grow over the forecast period.
