Regenerative medicine is a process to restore human cells, tissues, and organs. It is referred to as a group of biomedical approaches to clinical therapies involving stem cells. Furthermore, regenerative medicine includes therapy such as, cell therapy, which is the injection of stem cells or progenitor cells, and tissue engineering, which is the transplantation of laboratory-grown organs and tissues.
According to Ken Research estimates, the Global Regenerative Medicine Market – which grew from approximately US$ 15 billion in 2017 to approximately US$ 30 billion in 2022 – is forecasted to grow further into approximately US$ 70 billion opportunities by 2028, owing to the growing severe diseases, infections, and cancers. Rising clinical trials and research & development spending on new advanced healthcare processes and facilities by players and governments are also driving the growth of the market.
- Regenerative medicine market is driven by surging trauma cases, genetic disorders, chronic diseases, and other infectious viruses. According to World Health Organization, a specialized international public health organization, stated that nearly 10 million deaths in 2020 are caused by cancer worldwide, the most common cases of cancer were lung, prostate, skin, stomach, colon, and rectum. Cancer immunotherapy activates, replaces, and regenerates the immune system in order to fight cancer. Cancer immunotherapy is a form of regenerative medicine. The rising number of cancer patients worldwide is driving the growth of the regenerative medicine market.
- Patients suffering from wound injuries, serious disorders, and others require cell and gene therapies, representing advanced technology. The high cost of cell and gene therapies is hampering the growth of the market. In 2017, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a federal agency of the department of health and human services, approved Luxturna to treat a rare form of inherited blindness that affects 100 to 2000 people in the USA. This treatment cost US$ 425,000 per eye.
- COVID-19 has accelerated the growth of the regenerative medicine market. In May 2020, the Global Institute of Stem Cell Therapy and Research (GIOSTAR), received FDA approval for COVID-19 clinical trials with stem cells to treat the COVID-19 patients. In May 2020, According to United Arab Emirates Ministry of Foreign Affairs & International Corporation, stated that a patent has been granted by the Ministry of Economics for the development of an innovative and promising treatment for Covid19 infection using stem cells.
