COVID-19 Impact on the Global Mice Model Market

Mice Model Market

[263 Pages Report] The global mice model market size is projected to reach USD 1.9 billion by 2025 from USD 1.4 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 6.4% during the forecast period. Growing R&D expenditure in the pharmaceutical & biopharmaceutical industry, increasing implications of mouse clinical trials (MCTs) for more predictive outcomes, and ongoing innovations in mice models are driving the growth of the global mice model industry.

COVID-19 Impact on the Global Mice Model Market

The COVID-19 outbreak is an unprecedented global public health challenge and is expected to have a significant impact on the mice model market for the research & development of vaccines and antiviral drugs. A large number of animal models are required to verify the safety and efficacy of new entities before conducting human trials.

According to the WHO, more than 20 vaccines are being developed across the globe for COVID-19. These vaccines are in the preclinical phase, and some of them have already entered the animal trials phase. Several mice models have supported the replication of SARS-CoV-2, including C57BL/6, BALB/c, 129SvEv, hACE2 transgenic, and STA1 gene knockout (KO), out of which some mice models, like humans, develop symptoms of pneumonia.

The market demand for COVID-19 mouse models is increasing, especially for humanized ACE2 (hACE2) mice, which express human ACE2 in the airway and other epithelia and develop a lethal SARS-CoV infection. However, current supply is limited, as mice model providers do not have readymade populations to meet surging demand. Additionally, due to the pandemic, many research institutions are bound to shut down and are unable to operate normally, which has adversely affected the mice model market.

Considering the situation as described above, in the short term, the pandemic is anticipated to have a negative impact on the mice model market. However, in the long term, governments and scientific research institutions in various countries are bound to increase research investments in treatments and vaccines against infectious diseases like COVID-19. The surging demand for therapeutics and vaccines against COVID-19 is expected to boost the mice model market during the forecast period.
