Regional Market Summary

Geographically, the Americas is expected to dominate the global live cell encapsulation market due to the increasing per capita healthcare expenditure, and the heavy adoption of new technology.

Furthermore, rising expenses in research and development by healthcare bodies and the government is anticipated to drive the growth of the market in this region. Apart from this, increasing applications of regenerative medicine in the US is expecting to push the growth of live cell encapsulation market. For instance, According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), approximately 5,00,000 Americans benefit from a transplant each year.

Europe showed a considerable amount of growth in the global live cell encapsulation market. The market growth in this region is because of the presence of a well-established healthcare system and increase in chronic diseases. For instance, according to cancer research UK, there were approximately 9, 921 cases of cancer diagnosed in 2015. Such high rates of cancer are likely to increase demand for the use of next-generation sequencing as well as increase the market demands for monoclonal bodies and cellular research. These factors are expected to have a positive impact on the live cell encapsulation market.

Asia-Pacific is expected to have a sturdy growth rate during the forecast period owing to the huge patient pool of chronic diseases and government initiatives of healthcare reforms. However, less capital investment is restricting the market growth of this region.

On the other hand, the Middle East & Africa has the least share of the market due to the low disposable income. Moreover, the limited adoption of advanced healthcare facilities and limited access to treatment facilities is also expected to drive the growth of the market in the near future
