Stem Cell Research Products Market Development, Types and Applications Forecasts to 2020

Stem Cell Research Products - Opportunities, Tools, and Technologies report explores unique market opportunities by stem cell type, including mesenchymal stem cells, hematopoietic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, embryonic stem cells, neural stem cells, and more.

The Market for Stem Cell Research Products

Stem cells are primitive cells found in all multi-cellular organisms that are characterized by self-renewal and the capacity to differentiate into any mature cell type. Several broad categories of stem cells exist, including:

  • Embryonic stem cells, derived from blastocysts
  • Perinatal stem cells, obtained during the period immediately before and after birth
  • Adult stem cells, found in adult tissues
  • Induced pluripotent stem cells, produced by genetically reprogramming adults cells
  • Cancer stem cells, which give rise to clonal populations of cells that form tumors or disperse in the body

Stem cell research and experimentation have been in process for well over five decades, as stem cells have the unique ability to divide and replicate repeatedly. In addition, their “unspecialized” nature allows them to differentiate into a wide variety of specialized cell types.

In a developing embryo, stem cells can differentiate into all of the specialized embryonic tissues. In adult organisms, stem and progenitor cells act as a repair system for the body, replenishing specialized cells.

Traditionally, scientists have worked with both embryonic and adult stem cells as research tools. While the appeal of embryonic cells has been their ability to differentiate into any type of cell, there has been significant ethical, moral and spiritual controversy surrounding their use for research purposes. Although some adult stem cells do have differentiation capacity, it is often limited in nature, which results in fewer options for use.

At this time, the following account for the majority of stem cell research:

  • Basic Research – Understanding stem cell mechanisms and behavior
  • Regenerative Medicine – Reversal of injury or disease
  • Drug Target Validation and Drug Delivery – Treatment of disease
  • Toxicology Screening – Drug safety and efficacy assessment

To facilitate research resulting from interest in these potential far-ranging applications, a large and growing stem cells research products market has emerged.

Large companies selling stem cell research products include:

  • Thermo Fisher Scientific
  • BD Biosciences, a Division of Becton Dickinson
  • Merck KGaA
  • Miltenyi Biotec
  • STEMCELL Technologies
  • Lonza Group
  • Clontech (a Takara Bio Company)
  • GE Healthcare Life Sciences.

While several of these dominant market players have utilized acquisition strategies to grow and capture market share, Merck KGaA has had a particularly strong commitment to this approach, acquiring several other massive major players within the stem cell research products marketplace, including Milllipore on February 26, 2010, for $7.2 billion, and Sigma-Aldrich on September 22, 2014, for $17 billion. Dozens of mid-sized suppliers of stem cell research products also exist, as well as over 100 small specialty providers.
