The Middle East and Africa cell therapy instruments market was valued at US$ 398.23 Million in 2019 and is projected to reach US$ 899.62 Million by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.0% during the forecast period.
The surge in the number of cell therapy transplantation procedures, growing research and development activities, and rising investments in building production facilities for cell and gene therapy products drive the growth of the Middle East and Africa cell therapy instruments market. However, the low success rate of cell therapies and the high cost of cell-based research is expected to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.
Cell therapy typically involves the administration of somatic cell preparations by injecting or grafting it into the patient's body for the treatment of diseases or traumatic damages. The procedure is used to cure diabetes, neurological disorders, related injuries, several cancer types, bones and joints, and genetic disorders. Continuous research and development activities have led to unique cell therapeutic instruments for the improvement of immune system and efficient treatment of genetic disorders. Various market players provide several consumables such as reagent kits and enzymes as well as devices, equipment, and software to perform various cell therapy processes. The cell therapy products are derived from animals or human cells and thus need to be protected from contamination. The instruments used in cell therapies help provide protection against contamination and allow scaling up of transplantation. Companies such as Hitachi Chemical Advanced Therapeutics Solutions; Corning Incorporated; Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc.; MiltenyiBiotec, LLC; Invetech; and Cytiva (General Electric Company) have introduced various equipment and consumables for the cell therapy procedures.
Various US-based companies have their manufacturing units in the Middle East and African countries; the lockdown imposed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in multiple countries has affected the supply of instruments in this region. Therefore, many organizations are collaborating with other companies to overcome the adverse effects of the pandemic by using cell therapies for the treatment of COVID 19.
