Featuring excellent mechanical, thermal, electrical and magnetic properties, graphene enjoys broad prospect of its application in such fields as high-performance electronic devices, composite materials, sensors and energy storage.

Thus far, the development of graphenes has been still at a R&D stage, yet worldwide mass production has not been realized. In 2012, the global graphene market size hit USD9 million, with the most robust demand for graphene from semiconductor electronics, energy (mainly referring to batteries) and composite material industries which stood at 27%, 20% and 13%, respectively.

In spite of the small market scale presently, the global demand for graphene after commercial production will be enormous. Take semiconductor silicon for example, the worldwide demand approximates 2,500 tons per annum. Provided that one tenth of crystalline silicon will be substituted by graphenes to make high-end integrated circuit, the market capacity of graphenes will be at least RMB500 billion. In addition, graphenes can be also used to make lithium ion battery anode materials, which can significantly improve the battery performance. Worldwide, the annual demand for anode materials surpasses 30,000 tons and keeps a growth rate of 20% or more. Provided graphenes are used to make anode materials that were used for one tenth of lithium ion batteries, the demand will grow to over 3,000 tons.

China, with the largest graphite reserves in the world, is joining the ranks to actively conduct graphene R&D and industrialized layout. At present, China focuses more on the R&D of supercapacitor and graphene electrode. In particular, Chongqing Research Institute Chinese Academy of Sciences has succeeded in the preparation of 7-inch graphene flexible touch screens by making use of graphene electrode; Sichuan Jinlu Group, in collaboration with Institute of Metal Research Chinese Academy of Sciences, has finished the pilot test of 1.5-ton graphene production line.

Nanjing XFNano Material Tech produces several kilograms of graphenes daily, and its output of multilayer graphene hits 50kg/day; Morsh, taking advantage of the patent technologies possessed by Ningbo Institute of Materials Technology & Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences, is expected to conduct trial production of its 300-ton graphene production line project as of late 2013. But its products will be actually graphene nanoplatelets rather than real graphenes.

Opportunities in Human Embryonic Stem Cell (hESC) Products Market Trends and Forecasts to 2017

The report “Opportunities in Human Embryonic Stem Cell (hESC) Products – Trends and Forecasts to 2017” by BioInformant Worldwide, L.L.C is now available at RnRMarketResearch.com.com. Contact sales@rnrmarketresearch.com with report name in subject line and your contact details to purchase this report or get your questions answered.

Stem cells are primitive cells found in all multi-cellular organisms that are characterized by self-renewal and the capacity to differentiate into any mature cell type. Categorized by stage of life, several broad categories of stem cells exist, including: Embryonic stem cells, derived from blastocysts; Post-natal stem cells, derived from newborn tissues; Adult stem cells, found in adult tissues – including hematopoietic stem cells, mesenchymal stem cells, neural stem cells, and more; Induced pluripotent stem cells, reprogrammed from adult cells; Cancer stem cells, which give rise to clonal populations of cells that form tumors or disperse in the body.

Embryonic stem cells are stem cells derived from the inner cell mass of a blastocyst, which is a stage reached four to five days post-fertilization. They are the most pluripotent of all stem cell types and can develop into over 200 different cell types of the human body. Human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) were first derived from mouse embryos in 1981 by Martin Evans and Matthew Kaufman, and independently by Gail R. Martin. In 1995, the first successful culturing of embryonic stem cells from non-human primates occurred at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Another breakthrough followed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in November 1998 when a group led by Dr. James Thomson developed a technique to isolate and grow hESCs derived from human blastocysts.

As such, embryonic stem cells are still a relatively new discovery, as the first mouse embryonic stem cells (ESCs) were derived from embryos in 1981, but it was not until 1995 that the first successful culturing of embryonic stem cells from non-human primates occurred and not until November 1998 that a technique was developed to isolate and grow embryonic stem cells from human blastocysts.

Market Segments
To facilitate research resulting from these advances, a large and diverse market has emerged for human embryonic stem cell products, platforms, and technologies. In total, the global sales of these items compose the hESC product marketplace. One thriving component of this marketplace is the segment of companies that sell hESC research products to scientists.

Termed “research supply companies” or “research product vendors,” large companies selling human embryonic stem cell research products include Life Technologies, BD Biosciences, Thermo Fisher Scientific, EMD Millipore, Sigma Aldrich, Lonza, R&D Systems, and STEMCELL Technologies, as well as more than 60 other suppliers that range in size from multinational corporations to small specialty companies. Together, these research supply companies represent a substantial annual percentage of hESC product sales.

As of 2013, the following product categories accounted for more than 85% of all global hESC research product sales: Embryonic stem cell culture products; Embryonic stem cell lines; Antibodies to embryonic stem cell antigens; Bead-based embryonic stem cell separation systems; Embryonic stem cell protein purification and analysis tools; Tools for DNA and RNA-based characterization of embryonic stem cells; Embryonic stem cell specific growth factors and cytokines; Tools for embryonic stem cell gene regulation; Embryonic stem cell services and mechanisms for in vivo and in vitro stem cell tracking.

In addition, pharmaceutical companies also have intense interest in human embryonic stem cell product development. Because of their plasticity and unlimited capacity for self-renewal, hESCs have been proposed for use in a wide range of pharmaceutical applications, including: Drug target validation and testing; Toxicology testing; Tissue engineering; Cellular therapies; Personalized medicine; And more

For this reason, development of hESC products by the pharmaceutical sector also represents a thriving segment of the global hESC product marketplace. Of particular interest to this community is the potential for use of hESCs to heal tissues that have a naturally limited capacity for renewal, such as the human heart, liver and brain.

Furthermore, within the pharmaceutical sector, development of new drugs is extremely costly and the success rate of bringing new compounds to the market is unpredictable. Therefore, it is crucial that pharmaceutical companies minimize late-stage product failures, such as suboptimal pharmacokinetic properties or unexpected toxicity, that can arise when candidate drugs enter the clinical testing stages.
To achieve this, it would be highly desirable to test candidate drugs using in vitro assays of high human relevance as early as possible. Because hESCs have the potential to differentiate into all of the mature cell types of the human body, they represent an ideal cell type from which to design such drug screening assays.

In summary, the unifying factor within the hESC product marketplace is that all companies involved need to understand market forces, trends, metrics, and financials, in order out-compete the competition and make more profitable decisions. Producing hESC products can involve complicated and confusing decisions, but it doesn’t have to. Claim this report to reveal the current and future needs of the hESC marketplace, so you can focus your marketing efforts on the most profitable products, in the most promising research areas, and within the most lucrative domestic and international markets.

Market Characterization
It is also crucial for companies involved in the hESC product marketplace to understand the funding environment which supports hESC research. Within the United States, the federal government is currently an important, although not dominant, source of funding for stem cell research. The reason is that U.S. states are spending almost as much as the federal government on stem cell research and are actually spending more than the federal government on human embryonic stem cell (hESC) research. Private sources also contribute a huge amount of funding to stem cell research, with analysis of recent large gifts summing to over $1.7 billion.

Worldwide, hESC funding also varies widely, with countries varying from “very permissive” to “very limited” in how each elects to fund hESC product and technology development within the federal, private, and not-for-profit sectors.

While there is conclusive evidence that entering the hESC marketplace is financially worthwhile, there are complicating factors for companies that hope to enter the market. Specifically, human embryonic stem cell research is heavily encumbered by patents held by the University of Wisconsin’s Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF), which creates significant challenges for companies seeking to develop new products.

As such, this market research report explores the complex intellectual property (IP) landscape affecting development of human embryonic stem cell products, providing clear guidance for companies entering or already within the market, from collaborating with WARF to less costly alternatives – such as circumventing the claims, conducting research off-shore, and developing embryonic stem cell products for other species.
