Posted on: 05 Oct 16

Zion Research has published a new report titled “Rat Model Market By Type (Outbred, Conditioned, Knockout and Others) By Technology (Embryonic Stem Cells, Microinjection and Others) By Service (Breeding, Quarantine, Cryopreservation and Others) By Application (Toxicology, Oncology, CNS, Immunology and Inflammation, Diabetes and Other Diseases): Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis and Forecast, 2015 – 2021.” According to the report, the global rat model market accounted for USD 391.7 Million in 2015 and is expected to reach USD 684.4 Million by 2021, growing at a CAGR of around 9.7% between 2016 and 2021.

A rat model has been used  frequently in drug development, toxicology and various biomedical fields, including carcinogenicity testing. Ongoing research for the development of treatment on neurology disorder and cancer coupled with the emergence of transgenic rat models is expected to fuel the demand of rat models in coming years. In addition, advancement in bioinformatics that leads the development of tools and software for analysis of data generated after pre-clinical research using rat models is anticipated to boost the growth of this market in coming years. However, rising concern about animal cruelty, ethical concerns as well as the threat from the advancement of zebra fish models is expected to hinder the growth of the market in the forecast period.
