In Vitro Toxicity Testing: Technologies and Global Markets, 2019-2023 - Opportunities Presented by the Paradigm Shift in Toxicity Testing in the 21st Century - ResearchAndMarkets.com

March 12, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 12, 2019--The “In Vitro Toxicity Testing: Technologies and Global Markets” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The increasing need for non-animal tests in toxicity testing is driving demand in the in vitro toxicity market.

The growing demand for in vitro toxicity testing during the drug discovery process and increasing number of contract research organizations (CRO) are major drivers of the global in vitro toxicity market.

The increasing demand for animal-free toxicity tests driving the growth of the global in vitro toxicity market. In vitro toxicity tests are reliable, cost-effective and do not use animals, unlike in vivo tests.

The rising global prevalence of chronic diseases has significantly increased demand for the discovery of novel drugs. The toxicity study of drugs and compounds is performed by the regulatory bodies, in order to facilitate the approval of drugs and devices.

The high cost of toxicology equipment, inadequate infrastructure and funding for R&D in emerging countries are expected to hinder the growth of the global in vitro toxicity market. High-throughput screening (HTS) equipment is expensive, particularly for small and emerging countries that wish to purchase multiple instruments. Their high cost may hinder market growth in these countries.

However, governments, companies and research institutes are extensively funding for toxicology research, which should overcome the cost challenges and drive market growth during the forecast period. Also, regulatory programs such as TOX21, ToxCast program and NTP (National Toxicology Program) are creating enormous opportunities for companies in the in vitro toxicity global market.

Charles River, GVK Biosciences Private Ltd., Sekisui XenoTech LLC and Merck KGaA are among a large number of CROs that offer in vitro toxicity services.
