Cell Signaling Market 2020, Trend, Geographical Segmentation, Forecast
According MarketsandMarkets Research – The is expected to reach $3.51 billion, at a CAGR of 6.8%
The term “cell signaling” is used to define the complex interactive system of signals that regulates and mediate various cellular responses in the human body.
Cell signaling is used to study signaling pathways of cells in drug discovery and therapeutic development, to distinguish drug resistance patterns in cancerous cells. It also identifies the major signaling pathways impacted by specific drug treatments. Cell signaling pathways—also called signal transduction pathways—act as connecting links between environmental stimuli and the corresponding cellular response. These signaling pathways mainly consist of proteins that can interact, move to specific locations, or be modified.
Major Market Drivers:
- Rising Incidence of Chronic Diseases
- Availability of Funding for Cell-Based Research
- Technological Advancements in Cell-Based Research Instruments
- Growth of End-Use Industries
Availability of funding cell based research is key driver for the global cell signaling market
Governments of various countries are promoting and supporting cell-based research activities such as cell signalling, single-cell analysis, and stem cell research. A large portion of the funding from governments is provided to academic research societies to promote cell-based research, which helps in the evaluation of diagnostic and therapeutic applications of various types of cells in the management of chronic and infectious diseases. By driving research into the application and end-user industries for cell analysis, the availability of support plays a significant role in aiding market growth.
