Toxicity, also called as 'the science of poisons' is a method of testing the opposing effect of any drug, chemical or other agent administered in the body. It thus analyses the adverse effects of various toxins on all living organisms. Owing to its ethical and scientific advantages, in vitro toxicity testing has acquired regulatory acceptance worldwide and thus holds huge growth potential in future. The advancements in toxicity testing procedures, strict regulations in different countries and increasing awareness towards animal welfare are the main factors driving this market. Moreover, several animal welfare organizations worldwide are supporting in vitro toxicity testing as it has minimum suffering and pain to animals.
The global in vitro toxicity testing market is expected to reach USD 4,114.1 million in 2018, growing at a CAGR of 15.3% from 2013 to 2018. Animal testing has been in effect for a long time but the implementation of in vitro toxicity testing is an alternative to animal testing and is relatively more effective and harmless. Moreover, in vitro toxicity is cost-effective to animal testing and the growing ethical concerns worldwide are expected to drive the in vitro toxicity market in the forecasted period. The pharmaceutical companies are thus increasingly shifting their focus from animal testing to in vitro toxicity testing.
