According to a recent market study published by Growth Market Reports, titled, “Global Patient Derived Xenograft (PDX) Models Market by Type, by Tumor Type, by Application, by End-user, and by Region: Size, Share, Trends and Opportunity Analysis, 2017-2027”, the market was valued at US$ 113.5 Million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a healthy growth rate of 14.5% by the year 2027.

Patient-derived xenografts (PDX) are models of cancer in which the cells from a patient’s tumor are inserted into an immune deficient or humanized mouse. PDX models simulate that human tumor biology is allowing for natural cancer progression and offers translational research for calculating the desired result. Patient-derived xenograft (PDX) mouse models includes the insertion of fresh human tumor samples directly into the immune-deficient mice by surgery. Xenograft animal models are required for testing the effectiveness of medicines and are mostly required in drug advancement for cancer, diabetes, infections, etc.

The global patient derived xenograft (PDX) models market is fragmented based on types, tumor types, applications, end-user, and region. Based on the types, the market is bifurcated into mice models and rat models. In terms of tumor types, the market is categorized as gastrointestinal tumor models, gynecological tumor models, respiratory tumor models, urological tumor models, hematological tumor models, and others.

On the basis of applications, the market is segmented into preclinical drug development, biomarker analysis, and basic cancer research. In terms of end-user, the market is segregated into pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies, contract research organizations (CROs), and academic & research institutions. Based on region the global patient derived xenograft (PDX) models market has been fragmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.

The patient derived xenograft (PDX) models market is expected to witness a decrease its in year-on-year growth for 2020 as compared to for previous year 2019. Interruption in the supply chain of patient derived xenograft (PDX) models across the globe due to the spread of COVID-19 has a moderate negative impact on the product sales. Thus, the import and export of patient derived xenograft (PDX) models has witnessed a small decline in sales across the world in 2020.

Low availability of resources towards COVID-19 related testing, treatment, and clinical research affected the stalling of clinical trials for different therapeutic areas. Almost 61% of clinical trials were stalled, due to suspension of patient enrolment. Moreover, inadequate raw material supply and lack of available workforce for production of patient derived xenograft (PDX) models in the first and second quadrant of 2020 had hampered the market growth in 2020.

As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Akshata Ahire, “The global patient derived xenograft (PDX) models market is anticipated to witness significant growth during forecast period 2020-2027. Gene expression in tumors is maintained by sequential path of tumors from mouse to mouse. These models support research for tumor pharmacology & biology deprived of manual influence of cell cultures and are usually used in modified cancer therapy, drug enlargement and clinical tests. PDX models show advanced predictive values for clinical results than cell linederived xenograft models and hereditarily engineered mouse models. This, in turn, is projected to create ample of opportunities for this market in coming years.”
