The global cell isolation/cell separation market is expected to reach a value of USD 16.4 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing demand for biopharmaceuticals including antibodies, proteins, vaccines, and drugs is the most important factor that drives the market growth during the forecast period. Biopharmaceuticals development involves the application of various life science products such as centrifuges, cell separator systems, flow cytometers, filtration systems, and consumables. Thus, the demand for advanced cell isolation products by biotechnology and biopharmaceutical companies is increasing, which is expected to boost the market growth.

Rising funding by biotechnology companies and government for cell-based research is another major factor driving the growth of the cell isolation/cell separation market. For instance, National Institutes of Health invested around USD 1,429 million for stem cells research in 2015. Stem cell therapy is the most promising technique to treat severe medical conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, brain disease, and blood disease. Thus, the biotechnology companies are adopting advanced cell separation products for the research and development of stem cells.
