Traditional methods of drug discovery are inadequate and less relevant to the pace of the growing life science research and development. Organoids are, therefore, expected to generate a major revenue share in the market for drug discovery applications in the near future. Increasing failure rate in human preclinical trails is luring academicians and researchers to explore more possible organoid models for toxicology research and potential regenerative mediation research, thereby propelling the demand for organoids. Use of animals for research and testing has led to the creation of numerous initiatives and campaigns regarding the debatable issue. According to Humane Society International, more than 115 million animals are used for research in laboratories worldwide every year. Organoids are anticipated to substitute animals for testing in laboratories. Organoids are proving to be an appropriate alternate for animal testing models. The organoids market is growing with increasing support and initiatives to limit the use of animals for testing through regulatory guidelines. Thus, the rising focus on substituting animal model for research, along with development of commercially available organoids, is likely to boost the growth of the global organoids market.
According to the latest report published by FMI, the global organoids market is expected to reach ~ US$ 134 Mn by the forecast year 2029. The report further projects that the organoids market will grow at a CAGR of ~ 15% during the forecast period 2019-2029.
Organoids and 3D cell cultures are growing rapidly in popularity, replacing 2D cell culture in traditional methods of research in human developmental biology. With an alarming rise in the prevalence of cancer, the need for novel drugs has grown significantly, and this is expanding the scope of applications for organoids in oncology research. In the past few years, a mounting number of pharma companies have been focusing on introducing personalised oncology drugs, and leading stakeholders are joining the bandwagon by adopting strategies of creating cancer organoids for individual patients, in order to leverage the new avenues of growth in oncology research.
Organoids Market: Dynamics
Over the last few years, organoids have gained significant popularity among the research groups working on advanced 3D cell culture. The primary driver for the organoids market is considered to be the attainment of greater degree of resemblance to the cell specific structure of the specific organ, in vivo environmental conditions. Organoids are used for cell toxicity screening, cell-based assays, and organ specific cell functions. Cell cultures in 2D environment limit or restrict their ability to depict traits exhibited by in vivo systems, because of the morphological and locomotion limitations imposed by the 2D atmosphere. The ability of organoids to meticulously mimic the specific cells of the organs from which they are derived, leads to accurate models of tissues. This factor is considered to be a strong driver for the organoids market growth. Presently, advancements in 3D cell culture technology have developed a potential scope for development of cancer specific organoids with research of potential applications. This factor is expected to play an instrumental role in driving the growth of the organoids market.
Europe Takes the Centre Stage in the Organoids Market
Lack of skilled professionals engaged in research and developmental activities is expected to hamper the growth of the organoids market. A study presented by Tufts University in Boston, showed that it costs around US$ 2.6 million to develop a new drug and a standard prescription for the commercial market approval, due to high failure rates in human drug testing. Organoids offer viable model for the human disease models specific to organ tissue for drug screening in preclinical trials.
Europe organoids markets are expected to witness significant growth, in the view of increasing research activities in organoids field and growing number of sponsor for the study in these regions, as well as growing trend in academic research to work with organoid models, to explore more viable applications. Additionally, increasing bio-banking activity in the region is anticipated to propel the organoid market growth. Furthermore, rising research and development in 3D cell culture technology, prominent presence of manufacturers, and initiatives for replacing animal models in research studies with organoids are some of the factors propelling the growth of the organoid market. The Europe organoids market is estimated to create an estimated incremental $ opportunity worth approximately US$ 38 Mn between 2019 and 2029.
