Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Stem Cell Treatment Market size is poised to surpass USD 596 million by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 14% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of stem cell treatment was over USD 263 million. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing prevalence of chronic diseases such as, cancer, sickle cell disease, lymphoproliferative disorders, tumors, and others. According to WHO, cancer accounted for nearly ten million deaths worldwide in 2020. A study conducted by the International Agency for Research on Cancer 2020 found that approximately 1 in 5 people develops cancer during their lifetime, and about 1 in 8 men and 1 in 11 women die from it. Early diagnosis allows for a more targeted cancer treatment, such as stem cell therapy, which can be more effective than traditional chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Stem cell treatments involve using stem cells to stimulate the body's own immune system to attack cancer cells. The stem cells can also be used to replace damaged cells and restore function to organs that have been damaged by cancer.

In addition to these, other factors that are believed to fuel the market growth of stem cell treatment include the growing demand for regenerative and personalized medicines, and the rise in government funding for stem cell research. Stem cells can be used to create personalized medicines tailored to the individual needs of a patient. Moreover, the ongoing research activities being conducted for the treatment of COVID-19 is expected to further drive market growth in the coming years. For instance, a grant of USD 5 million was awarded to Lineage Cell Therapeutics in May 2020 by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) to develop a vaccine against SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, using VAC, Lineage's allogeneic dendritic cell therapy.

Stem Cell Treatment Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Prevalence of Musculoskeletal Disorders Such as Osteoarthritis- According to the World Health Organization (WHO), nearly 1.71 billion people are affected by musculoskeletal conditions worldwide. According to the CDC, one in four US adults (or 54.4 million) suffer from some form of arthritis, with the number projected to rise to 78 million by 2040. The most common form of arthritis, osteoarthritis (OA), affects 32.5 million adults in the US. Stem cell treatment can help to reduce pain, improve mobility and reduce inflammation associated with musculoskeletal disorders. This has led to an increased interest in stem cell treatments as an alternative to traditional treatments such as surgery.

  • Establishment of New Research and Therapy Center for Stem Cells and Cancer - For instance, a new stem cell and cancer research and therapy center was inaugurated by the Global Institute of Stem Cell Therapy and Research (GIOSTAR) in Chandigarh, India, in February 2020. As part of GIOSTAR's global expansion efforts in India, Mexico, the United States, and other countries, this facility marks the latest milestone. Development of a new center can help drive innovation in the field of stem cell therapy, contributing to more effective treatments and better outcomes.

  • Increasing Number of Stem Cell-Based Clinical Trials - A preliminary review of 112 stem cell-based clinical trials has been conducted by May 2020. The best results were obtained using hematopoietic stem cells (37%), mesenchymal stem cells (35%), umbilical cord blood (UCB) (23%) and bone marrow (BM)-derived cells (21%).

  • Availability of Enormous Amounts of Funds for Stem Cell Research and Development- Research funding for stem cells has increased in recent years. Stem cell research is seen as a promising area of medicine, as it could lead to treatments for incurable diseases and injuries. For instance, a funding award of USD 31 million was granted to Stanford Research in September 2021 by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine for launching first-in-human trials of stem cells for heart failure, strokes, and spinal cord tumours. Also, a Stem Cell SpaceShot Grant in the field of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine has been announced by TreeFrog Therapeutics in April 2022. The grant amounts to USD 100,000 in research funding.

  • Rise in Approval for Stem Cell Treatments for Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) - For instance, a clinical trial of VX-880 was initiated by Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated in April 2021 after receiving FDA Fast Track Designation in April 2021. The company is testing it on patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D) who suffer from severe hypoglycemia and are unaware of their hypoglycemia. For the treatment of type 1 diabetes, VX-880 uses fully differentiated, insulin-producing pancreatic islet cells derived from stem cells.


  • Ethical concerns related to the use of stem cells in treatments- The use of stem cells is highly regulated and can be a source of controversy due to potential ethical issues such as the potential for human embryos to be used in treatments. This has caused many countries to impose regulations on the use of stem cells and has limited the growth of the stem cell treatment market.
  • High costs of treatment
  • Lack of availability of stem cell sources and the lack of standardization of stem cell treatments

Stem Cell Treatment Segmentation

Treatment Type (Allogeneic, Autologous, Syngeneic)

The global stem cell treatment market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by treatment type into allogeneic, autologous and syngeneic. Out of these, the allogeneic segment is estimated to gain the largest market share of about ~43% in the year 2035. The allogeneic segment is gaining popularity owing to its ability to provide long-term benefits for patients, cost effectiveness, and the potential for personalized treatments. Additionally, advancements in stem cell technology and the increasing demand for stem cell therapies are further driving the growth of the allogeneic segment. Moreover, the increasing incidence of blood cancer and genetic disorders are also expected to fuel the segment growth. It is estimated that someone in the US die of a blood cancer every nine minutes. An estimated 57,750 people died from leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma in the US in 2021. The number of Australians suffering from blood cancer or blood disorders today is around 135,000. Allogeneic stem cell transplant involves harvesting healthy stem cells from a donor and transplanting them into the patient. The healthy stem cells can then proliferate and replace the cancerous cells, allowing the patient to recover from the disease.

Application (Regenerative Medicine, Drug Discovery, Development)

The global stem cell treatment market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application to regenerative medicine and drug discovery and development. Out of these, the regenerative medicine segment is estimated to gain significant market share of about ~57% in the year 2035.
