Epidermal cell sheet finds extensive applications in regenerative medicine for treating patients with skin disorders, and does possess the potential to threat limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD), as per demonstration in varying animal models. Rising demand for epidermal care, driven by sensitive skin ailments, is a key factor spurring revenue of epidermal cell sheet market. Rising need to safeguard skin from infectious agents is also providing fillip to sales of epidermal cell sheet by a notable margin. Consumers, with a rapid transition toward healthy lifestyles, are showing marked preferences for a wide range of epidermal cell sheets facilitating protection, exfoliation, and nourishment, which remain highly-valued among the customers.
Recent years of incessant research and development in epidermal cell sheet technologies have paved ways for efficient variants invading in the market space. Competency of epidermal care products in terms of offering oxygen content, which is instrumental to augment skin sustainability, is another prominent aspect enhancing visibility of epidermal cell sheets. However, major issues associated with epidermal cell sheet, such as limited lifespan, high cost, and potential risk factors, are some of the key deterrents having adverse impact on growth of epidermal cell sheet market over the forecast timespan.
Epidermal care is essential throughout the lifespan of an individual. Skin is the outermost layer of the body which perspires, breathes, stretches, and acts as the first line of defense against infectious agents. However, with increasing age and body maturation, the potency of skin degrades and requires external care. Variety of epidermal cell sheets are introduced into the market offering protection, nourishment, and exfoliation. An elective way to deal with address the disadvantages by skin autografts is to graft in vitro-expanded epithelial keratinocytes, utilizing a solid technique for refined human epidermal keratinocytes in the coherent layers of skin. These autologous epidermal cell sheets have been effectively utilized in treating real skin burns and chronic wounds of the animal body. Epidermal care products are also used to deliver oxygen in order to enhance skin sustainability. However, across the board utilization of these refined epithelial autografts (CEAs) has been hampered by the long in vitro extension period, affectability to contamination, mechanical delicacy of the sheets, and work escalated procedure of skin grafts processes, related with the prerequisite of the significant research center ability. In the recent years, inordinate strides have been produced in the identification, separation, and classification of epidermal stem cells.
The growth of the epidermal cell sheets market is primarily driven by changing lifestyle pattern in most of developing countries, growing demand for aesthetic procedures, increasing trend towards tissue engineering procedures, growing elderly population. New advances have been made toward emerging skin substitutes made up of artificial and natural materials. Engineered skin substitutes are developed from cellular materials or can be synthesized from autologous, allograft, xenogenic, or synthetic sources. In addition to that, factors such as growing awareness towards epidermal care, rising use of Autologous epidermal sheets in research laboratories and skin care or surgical centers, increasing prevalence and incidence rate of skin-related disorders, and increasing work-related stress results in distress of skin are impelling the growth of epidermal (autologous) cell sheets market. Rising standard procedures for autologous keratinocyte transplantation is gaining traction in the global market. However, limited lifespan of the products, high cost of the procedure and the product, and risk associated with the epidermal cell sheets are the major obstacle to the market growth of epidermal cell sheets.
