Toxicology Services Global Market – Forecast To 2025
The study of adverse effects of chemicals and other biologic substances on living organisms is termed as toxicology. The term toxicology is broadly used in various industries such as agrochemical, pharmaceutical, medical devices, cosmetics, and others. Toxicologists are responsible for the development, implementation, and interpretation of toxicological tests to meet regulatory requirements and data quality standards (e.g., GLPs). According to IQ4I analysis, the toxicology services global market is expected to grow at high single digit CAGR to reach $14,343.0 million by 2025. Mandatory toxicology testing in various industries such as pharmaceutical, agriculture, environmental and chemical, rapid technology advancements, increased demand for crop protection are some of the driving factors for this industry. Increasing trend in outsourcing the toxicology services and increasing end stage drug failures are creating newer opportunities for the market to grow. However, opposition to animal testing in case of in vivo tests and increased funding towards drug repurposing are hindering the market to grow.
Toxicology services global market is classified based on methods, industries, endpoint tests, and geography. Based on methods the toxicology services market can be divided into two segments i.e., in vivo, and in vitro. In silico methods have been included in the in vitro segment along with ex vivo methods. Based on industries the segment is further classified as pharmaceutical industry (discovery and preclinical), medical device industry, cosmetics, chemical industry (industrial chemicals, agrochemicals, environmental) and others (consumer goods and food). The endpoints segment can be classified as systemic toxicology, organ toxicology, dermal toxicology, neurotoxicology, ocular toxicology, genotoxicology, developmental and reproductive toxicology, carcinogenicity and ecotoxicology.
Based on geography toxicology services global market is classified as North America, Europe, APAC and Rest of the world. North America accounts for the highest market share followed by Europe. The region is backed by huge government funding, mandatory toxicology testing regulations and streamlined toxicology guidelines which makes the volume of tests higher. Particularly in the case of pharmaceutical industry, the research for new drug candidates in on a rise taking a look at the pipeline drugs which makes these regions grow in terms of revenue and market size. However, Asian countries especially China and India are the fastest growing regions with its growing demand for toxicology services products.
