The opposition to animal testing, technological advancements, and increasing R&D expenditure to detect toxicity at an early stage during drug development are the primary growth factors for this market. Also, the increasing focus of the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries on using in-vitro methods for product testing along with the improvement in silico methods for predictive toxicology studies are expected to offer significant opportunities for market growth in the coming years.

Opportunity: Increasing focus on drug discovery and personalized medicine using in vitro methods

Over the years, there has been a certain decline in the pharmaceutical industry’s productivity due to growing development costs and the decreasing profitability of new medical entities launched. One of the highest challenges faced by the pharmaceutical industry today is the failure of promising new drug candidates due to adverse effects revealed during preclinical animal safety studies and clinical trials. The development of methods to show or predict efficacy and toxicity in humans, before drugs move to clinical trials, could greatly help lower the failure rate of new medications.

Challenge; Derth of skilled professionals

IVT comprises sophisticated methods to study biological entities within a laboratory setup. It involves labor-intensive methods to perform experiments and requires skilled professionals such as researchers and technicians to set up and run tests and trials, make observations, obtain results, and analyze data. A lack of knowledge about the underlying scientific principles and the right choice of technique may result in numerous direct and indirect expenses and, thereby, increase the workload and time pressure on researchers and service providers. Thus, there is a need for highly skilled personnel for method development, validation, operation, and troubleshooting activities
