Report Description

Single-cell analysis is being extensively used by the biopharmaceutical and biotechnology industries to discover new drugs and technologies to treat rare and infectious diseases. For instance, in March 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Pfizer Inc.’s supplemental new drug application for “LORBRENA”, expanding the indication to include first-line treatment of people with anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). LORBRENA is now indicated for adults with metastatic NSCLC whose tumors are ALK-positive as detected by an FDA-approved test. Moreover, the collaborations and partnerships among the key players for developing new products are also boosting the single-cell analysis market. Biogen Inc. and Capsigen Inc. on May 10, 2021, announced their strategic research collaboration to engineer novel adeno-associated virus (AAV) capsids that have the potential to deliver transformative gene therapies to address the underlying genetic causes of various CNS and neuromuscular disorders.

Moreover, the increasing cases of cancer and other chronic diseases are adding pace to the growth of the single-cell analysis market. According to the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, more than 25 million people in the United States have asthma. And almost 14.8 million adults are diagnosed with COPD, and nearly 12 million people are not yet been diagnosed with respiratory diseases in 2020. Also, as per the American Cancer Society, in 2020, there were approximately 89,500 cancer cases diagnosed and about 9,270 cancer deaths in adolescents and young adults aged between 15 to 39 years in the US.

The covid-19 pandemic has impacted the single-cell analysis market positively. As the increasing cases of Covid-19 have increased the demand for research to develop a cure for the Covid-19 virus or a vaccine to protect the people from this deadly virus. According to the Wiley Online Library’s report on clinical and translational medicine in May 2021, the scientists were using the combined single-cell and bulk TCR sequencing methods to decode the matching of T cell phenotype and antigenic epitopes for the identification of potential vaccine targets for COVID-19. The growing research in this field to encounter the novel coronavirus will boost the single-cell analysis market in the forecast period.
