The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented public health concern and has led to an increase in research & development of vaccines as well as antiviral drugs. Therefore, animals are needed in large numbers to verify the efficacy and safety before the conducting human trials of the vaccines and antiviral drugs. The demand for humanized ACE2 mouse models, that develops a lethal SARS-CoV infection is increasing owing to the need to conduct research experiments. Government and scientific research institutions are bound to increase research investments to develop vaccines and treatments against COVID-19.

Several companies are also working on various animal to develop a vaccine or drug against COVID-19. However, several research institutions are unable to operate normally and some of the market players are unable to meet the surging demand due to the ongoing pandemic that has adversely affected the animal model market value.

Growing demand for personalized medicine will enhance the animal model market demand

Increasing consumption of personalized medicine has augmented the demand for humanized mouse models for treatment of certain disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. According to a recently published study by the National Institute of Aging, humanized mouse model allows precision medicine research for psychological disorders including Alzheimer’s disease. The study revealed that most of the molecular features of Alzheimer’s disease can be replicated in a humanized mouse model that further increases the research for precision medicine with respect to Alzheimer’s disease.

Rising preference for mice models

The mice model market valued more than USD 7.6 billion in 2019 propelled by the factors such as physiological similarities and phylogenetic relatedness of mice to the humans coupled with their ease of maintenance and breeding in the laboratory. The genome of mice can be manipulated and analysed easily, making them an ideal choice for genetic research studies such as immunology and inflammation studies, oncology studies, central nervous system studies, and diabetes studies. This led to an increased adoption and demand for mice models by the researchers.

Increasing adoption of CRISPR technology will foster the market size

The CRISPR segment in the animal model market is expected to witness around 8% growth rate through 2026 led by the reduction in cost and time needed for genome editing and enabling the production of animal models with genetic modifications. CRISPR technology is also used to produce animal to study human disease progression in a controlled manner and to evaluate potential therapies.

Growing need for production and quality control for therapeutic purpose

The animal model market for production and quality control application valued at USD 2.2 billion in 2019 impelled by the increased demand for animal to test the safety of vaccines such as tuberculosis and malaria vaccine. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), approximately 15% of the total animal models are used for the vaccine production and quality control. The high demand for targeted therapy and personalized medicine to treat cancer patients has also led to higher production and quality control check.

Rise in demand for disease treatment in humans will spur the animal model market share

Human segment revenue crossed USD 12 billion in 2019 driven by the factors such as increasing focus towards studying human-specific infections, immune responses and therapies along with identification of the actual effect of drugs on humans. Animal models are fundamental in clinical research for determining the pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetics of the drugs used in the treatment of human diseases.

The demand for animal models is significantly increasing in human-related disease conditions. Furthermore, the rising prevalence of cancer, infectious diseases, HIV/AIDS and hepatitis has augmented the adoption of animal models for biomedical research of these diseases.

UK animal model market accounted for USD 648 million in 2019. Animals in UK are being used on a large scale for research and development of novel vaccines. The European Association for Cancer Research is organizing workshops in the country to discuss the technologies developed in the field of innovative mouse models. This initiative has the potential to expand the market in the country.

In the UK, the search for better animals for treatment of Alzheimer’s disease has influenced the demand for animal models. The European Union is also engaged in sponsoring research organization consortiums for R&D on mouse models for Alzheimer’s disease.

Japan dominated the in Asia Pacific market size with around USD 1.19 billion revenue in 2019 on account of the increase in research on biomedical, regenerative medicine, and rising medical research in the country. Large geriatric patient population pool suffering from chronic diseases requiring extensive prevention and treatment has led to increased demand for animal models. Government funding in Japan has also led to advancements in biological research, thereby augmenting the adoption and demand for animals. Moreover, presence of well-established research laboratories and healthcare institutes is one of the major driving factors propelling the demand for animal in the country.
