Cell-based assays refer to use of live cells in experiments, to analyze or understand various accepts of response by organism against an external therapeutic or toxic agent.

The demand for cost-effective and relevant research tool in drug discovery, development and manufacturing, toxicity testing, ecotoxicology, biosafety and biocompatibility of cosmetics and chemicals is increasing interest in cell-based assays. The rise in research and the approvals of biologics and biosimilars are increasing utilization of cell-based assay as a tool for ensuring safety and potency of the product. The factors driving the market are rising use of the cell-based assay in drug discovery and development, increasing focus on biologics, technological advancements favoring the adoption of cell-based assays, the growing availability of funds for research. Whereas, factors such as lack of skilled professionals, ethical concerns over the use of raw materials from animal sources, high cost of instruments, lack of standardization, consistency and reproducibility issues are restraining the market growth.

According to IQ4I analysis, the Cell-based assays global market is is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.0% to reach 20,053.4 million by 2025. Cell-based assays or bioassays are often an integral part of drug development in the pharma and biotech industry, which are a key component of preclinical, clinical and drug manufacturing processes. Other areas of application include, basic research, diagnostics and medical device testing, agro product and environmental testing, cosmetic testing, food and beverages testing and chemical and material testing. The Cell-based assays global market is segmented based on the products, applications, and geography. The Cell-based assays market by Products is segmented into Consumables, Instruments, and Software & Services. Among which, Consumables market commanded the largest share in 2018 growing at high single digit CAGR from 2018 to 2025.

The consumables market is further sub-segmented into assay kits, cells, microplates, reagents and others, among which reagents commanded the largest market share and is expected to grow at high CAGR from 2018 to 2025.
