The source segment includes mammalian and non-mammalian cell lines. The non-mammalian source is further divided into insects and amphibians. Mammalian source segment accounted for more than 70% cell line development market share in 2019 and will show similar growth in the forthcoming years. The enhanced expression system and cell line engineering for mammalian cell line is expected to foster the industry growth.

The mammalian cell line is formed by studying developmental biology as well as gene and protein interaction. These cell lines have ability to express complex protein units in monoclonal antibodies that are similar to humans and are widely used in cell culture. Additionally, adoption of mammalian cell lines due to easy adaptability with the human tissues & biological components and reduced risk of infection, will thus, drive market growth over the forecast timeframe.

Rising cases of viral and bacterial infections will increase the demand of recombinant cell lines

The cell line segment covers recombinant, hybridomas, continuous cell line and primary cell line. Recombinant cell lines segment held substantial revenue in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at 12.7% over 2020-2026. The recombinant cell lines consist of recombinant DNA that ensure stability. These cell lines are used in treatment of autoimmune, hematologic diseases, hormonal dysregulations and other such diseases.

The recombinant cell lines function by protein folding, post-translational modifications and glycosylation that ensure active protein production. Additionally, huge investments in R&D will further surge the demand for recombinant cell lines, leading to cell line development market growth.

Monoclonal antibodies and vaccines are the most commonly synthesized bioproducts that will accelerate the market progress

Bioproduction application accounted for USD 2 billion in 2019 and is estimated to show lucrative growth through 2026. Increasing demand for biological products in the treatment of various chronic and infectious diseases will foster segment growth during the coming years.

Moreover, the technological advancements resulting in the development of superior techniques for bioproduction will prove beneficial for the market growth. The cell lines required for bioproduction have the ability to produce complex & large proteins for ideal growth characteristics. The most common human cell lines used for bioproduction includes Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell line that results into production of stable recombinant biopharmaceutical proteins essential for biologics production. Such advancements will thus further augment the market demand.

Adoption of advanced technologies and growing investments in R&D activities will prove beneficial for the North American market expansion

North America cell line development market demand accounted for more than USD 1.4 billion revenue in 2019. Rising adoption of sedentary lifestyle along with surge in alcohol and tobacco consumption will increase the regional disease burden over the upcoming years. Availability of advanced technologies, necessary for large scale breeding of productive cell lines will favor the industry growth. Moreover, the increasing demand of biologics in cancer treatment and rising healthcare expenditure will further spur the regional market demand.
