Mice Model Market by Type (Inbred, Knockout, Hybrid), Technology (Microinjection, Embryonic stem Cell), Disease (Oncology, Diabetes), Service (Breeding, Quarantine, Genetic testing) & Care Products (Bedding, Feed) - Analysis & Global Forecast to 2020
Mice models are indispensable tools in research activities with their capability to elucidate human disease processes, due to striking similarities between the anatomy, physiology, and genetics of humans and mice. These advantages promote scientific discovery, understanding of the functions of individual genes, mechanisms of different diseases, and the effectiveness and toxicities of various drug molecules. Mice models are the most popularly used animal models due to their small size, short generation time, accelerated lifespan, low cost, and requirement of less space. These factors help in accelerating the research and development of drug therapies.
Ongoing innovations in mice models, personalized medicine fuelling the demand for personalized humanized mice models, continuous support in the form of investments and grants, and increase in R&D activities of pharmaceutical industries are some of the factors that are expected to drive the growth of the global mice model market in the coming years.
Market players are continuously focusing on innovations in mice models for research on various human diseases. Growing innovations and advances in mice models are providing increased options to researchers to conduct research activities in particular diseases, which is a major factor driving market growth.
On the other hand, factors like advancements in genetic techniques for the development of genetically modified rats have led to the increased usage of rat models, thereby restraining the mice model market to some extent. In addition, advances in zebrafish model development, increased benefits from cryopreservation, regulations & laws for the ethical use of animals, and alternative methods to animal testing are some factors expected to restrain the growth of the market. Moreover, the continuous need for improved mice models is posing as a major challenge for the global mice model market.
In 2015, the inbred mice are estimated to account for the largest share of the global mice model market, by type while genetically engineered mice models are expected to be the fastest-growing market segment, owing to high investments in the development of new and innovative knockout models that also increases the application areas for the models.
In 2015, North America is expected to account for the largest share of the global mice model market, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW). North America’s large share is attributed to the revised funding plans by NIH to enhance the reproducibility of results, rising demands for monoclonal antibody production, continued and responsible use of animals ensured by animal care organizations, rising preclinical activities by CROs and pharmaceutical companies, and growing stem cell research in Canada.
The major players in the market are focusing on various strategies (agreements, partnerships, joint ventures, collaborations, geographic expansion, new product launches, funds/grants, licensing, patents, and acquisitions) to increase their market shares and establish a strong foothold in the global market.
