Cancer cells are different from normal cells, as normal cells can result in generation of cancerous cells, when a series of mutations leads the normal cell to continue to grow and divide out of control. Cancer cells have the ability to travel or invade nearby tissues and thus spread to different regions of body, unlike normal cells that remain in the region, where they began. Cancer cells are generated in the human body through a series of genetic and epigenetic changes. Some of these changes may be either inherited or more often, caused by carcinogens (cancer causing substances) such as tobacco and others.
The global cancer cell market is estimated to be valued at US$ 8,525.5 million in 2020 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.20 % during the forecast period (2020-2027).

Increasing prevalence of cancers such as lung cancer, breast cancer, and others is expected to propel growth of the global cancer cell market during the forecast period. For instance, according to the World Health Organization report published in 2018, stated that cancer is the second leading cause of death in people globally and caused around 9.6 million deaths, globally in the year 2018.
Furthermore, key companies focusing on inorganic strategies such as mergers and acquisitions to launch new targeted cell therapies for the treatment of people suffering from cancer, are expected to drive growth of the market. For instance, in 2018, Pfizer, Inc. announced its merger with Allogene to develop an investigational CAR-T cell therapy for the treatment of cancer.

Global Cancer Cell Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Following the outbreak of COVID-19 in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe and the World Health Organization declared it a public health emergency. According to the World Health Organization’s report, manifestation of coronavirus (COVID-19) has resulted in over 67 million infected individuals worldwide as of December 07, 2020.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and resulting lockdown in various countries across the globe have impacted the financial status of major companies in cancer cell market. The private healthcare sector is one of the sectors, which has been majorly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has negatively impacted the global cancer cell market in various aspects such as research and development, production, and supply of medicines and also affected growth of the pharmaceutical businesses of various companies across the globe due to lockdowns implemented by governments of several countries. The nationwide lockdowns have led to closure of industrial establishments, except manufacturing of essential commodities and disruption in supply chain of the raw materials and drugs for therapeutic use.
