According to Future Market Insights (FMI), the sales of high-end cellomics have grown at a CAGR of 6.4% during 2021- 2031. Due to the rising prevalence of several genetic disorders and neurological diseases, the demand for effective screening methods and techniques has increased in the last decade. This had a positive impact on the high-end cellomics market.

Initiatives undertaken by governments to promote advanced research in biotechnology will increase installation of high-end cellomics instruments for drug discovery applications. Cities of India such as Bangalore, Pune, Hyderabad, and Tamil Nadu have well-established biotechnology research infrastructure recognized globally, which will drive the demand for high-end research instruments. 

Apart from India, China, and the U.S., governments of Japan, Brazil, the U.K., and Australia are supporting their domestic biotechnology and bioscience industry through similar initiatives. Factors such as these are expected to create lucrative growth opportunities for manufacturers operating in the global high-end cellomics market

How will Development of Advanced Imaging Systems Augment High-end Cellomics Market Growth?

High-end cellomics has recently acquired substantial traction due to its capacity to investigate features across numerous parts of cell biology and drug discovery and development process. Because of their increased application in life sciences research, these systems have seen technological breakthroughs in automated microscope hardware, sCMOS cameras, confocal optics, oil immersion objective lenses, and throughput capabilities.

Furthermore, these systems have increased software data analysis and data management capabilities. Considering these advancements, the industry players are focusing on introducing new products with these features. Some of the recent launches in this regard include:

In January 2021, Molecular Devices LLC introduced a new high content screening system – ImageXpress Confocal HT.ai High Content HT.ai. This device enables researchers to accelerate their study on phenotypic screening of organoid models. Quick Image acquisition and multiplexing flexibility with high performing lasers are some of the benefits offered by this next-generation high content screening system.

Molecular Devices LLC, in December 2020, introduce water imaging technology for the ImageXpress Micro Confocal High-Content Imaging System. This latest system is developed on existing 3D imaging technology which enables acquisition and analysis of both 3D cell model assays such as spheroids, organoids, and organ-on-chip biology

Availability of such innovative products with associated benefits will lead to an increase adoption, thus fueling the growth of the global high-end cellomics market.

What are the Key Opportunities for High-end Cellomics Market Players?

High-end cellomics systems are used across a wide range of applications in drug discovery including primary and secondary screening, target identification and validation, toxicity testing, and compound profiling.

For pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, which is one of the major end-users of these systems, having high-end high content screening equipment increases the total R&D cost of drug development. Also, budgetary constraints among the academic and research institutes lowers the adoption rate of the high-end cellomics systems.

These end-users prefer to outsource HCS services to independent contract research organizations (CROs), due to which the number of CROs offering these services is rising. Charles River Laboratories, Eurofins international are some of the CROs offering high-end cellomics services. Thus, the growing interest in outsourcing services is anticipated to positively drive the sales of the high-end cellomics systems, which in turn provides a lucrative opportunity for market growth.

Will the High Cost of High-end Cellomics Instruments Lower their Adoption?

A high-end cellomics instrument is a set of various analytical methods including automated microscopy, image processing, and visualization tools in one single system. Also, these systems have improved features such as high throughput capacity, confocal optics, sCMOS cameras, water, and oil immersion lens. Hence they are priced on the higher-end.

Apart from the instrumentation cost, installation, maintenance and services costs also add up to the total cost of ownership, thus leading to an increase in the total spending. Academic research institutes, CROS, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies who are the primary end-users of these systems, are sometimes reluctant for adoption owing to budgetary constraints.

This has made them shift towards other cell imaging analysis equipment such as cell imaging instruments and flow cytometry. This trend is particularly seen in the price-sensitive markets such as India. Thus, the high cost of these instruments coupled with the availability of alternative instruments is expected to create a negative impact on the market growth.

What is the Impact of the COVID-19 Crisis on the Market?

With this unprecedented crisis, the healthcare industry has found itself on the frontline to deal with the medical emergency which has not only ruined the economies across the globe but has also put huge pressure on the healthcare facilities.

The unexpected level of request for the testing kits has pushed the industry players into unexplored regions where their assets are confronted on regular basis. In addition to this, the supplies and demands were jolted by the massive infection spread, which staggered the supplies for manufacturing the high-end cellomics market.

As high-end cellomics instruments are used only for research purposes, the temporary halt in research and development activities has created a sharp reduction in demand for these products. Thus, the high-end cellomics market is expected to witness a short-term negative impact on market growth.

With the lifting of lockdown, reopening of the companies and industries, resuming research and development activities in cell-based research and drug discovery, government initiatives and reviewed market approaches, the high-end cellomics market will register increasing growth 2021 onwards.
