Insights, By Therapy Type: Advanced immunotherapies boosts T-cell segment growth

Therapy Type segment is sub-segmented into stem cells, T-cells, dendritic cells, and NK-cells. T-cells segment is expected to hold 73.4% of the market share in 2024 owing to strong clinical research outcomes and considerable investments made in T-cell therapies by biotech companies. T-cells or T lymphocytes form an essential part of the adaptive immune system, and are capable of recognizing infected or cancerous cells. Research in recent years has shown the potential of engineered T-cells, known as CAR T-cell therapy, to identify and destroy cancer cells that traditional drugs are unable to eliminate. Pioneering drugs such as Kymriah and Yescarta achieved impressive complete remission rates in late-stage clinical trials for blood cancers. Their subsequent approval by regulatory bodies has validated CAR T-cell therapy as a mainstream treatment option. Key factors powering the T-cell segment include improved understanding of T-cell biology and immunology, development of novel technologies for T-cell engineering and expansion, refinement of lymphodepletion regimens to improve T-cell engraftment, and identification of novel tumor-associated antigens. Major biopharma companies are funneling billions towards advancing the next generation of personalized T-cell therapies with enhanced safety profiles and expanded capabilities against solid tumors. Academia-industry partnerships are collaborating to decipher the complex interplay between cancer and immunity which could uncover novel targets and strategies.

Insights, By Indication: Increasing Prevalence of Cancer Drives Oncology Segment

Indication segment is sub-segmented into oncology, cardiology, neurology, and others. Oncology segment is expected to hold 69.7% of the market share in 2024 due to increasing prevalence of cancer. For instance, according to the National Cancer Institute, in 2022, the estimated new cases of multiple myeloma were approximately 34,470 in the U.S. Conventional therapies such as chemotherapy, radiation and targeted drugs have significant limitations including toxicity, development of drug resistance and failure to cure metastatic cancers. This has created a pressing clinical need for novel modalities that can boost anti-tumor immunity through cell-based interventions. Cell therapies leveraging the immune system's intrinsic ability to recognize and eliminate rogue cells have emerged as one of the most promising new anti-cancer strategies. Pioneering approaches such as CAR T-cell therapy and TIL (Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocyte) therapy have illustrated the potential for durable remissions even in heavily pretreated patients. Continued clinical validation of these therapies coupled with expansion into additional cancer types will consolidate oncology as the predominant indication segment. Other factors supporting growth include greater accessibility of approved cell therapies compared to other applications, significant investments from pharma companies, and heightened focus on combination strategies with other immunotherapies.

Insights, End User: Increasing Grant Approvals

End User segment is sub-segmented into hospitals, clinics, and research institutes. Hospitals segment is expected to hold 41.2% of the market share in 2024 owing to increasing grant approvals by non-government organizations for research and development activities. For instance, in May 2022, The Ottawa Hospital, Ontario, Canada received a total of US$ 1.85 million in funding to use stem cells and regenerative medicine to develop new therapies for septic shock, bone and joint conditions, and newborn lung damage, as well as to advance patient engagement in research. The new peer-reviewed grants are funded by the Stem Cell Network as part of its US$ 19.5 million investment in research projects across the Canada. Researchers from the University of Ottawa, Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO), and many other institutions are partnering on the project.
