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
[http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/in-vitro-toxicity-testing-market.html ] 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.

North America accounted for the largest share, i.e. 40% of the overall in vitro
toxicity testing market in 2010 at USD 526.9 million; however, Europe is expected to hold
the largest share in 2018 surpassing North America. The primary reason for this has been
the ban on animal testing in Europe for the assessment of genotoxic effects of chemicals
ingredients intended for cosmetic products. So, it is expected to boost the in vitro
toxicity testing market in Europe in the coming future. Among the several segments of the
in vitro toxicity testing market, cosmetics and personal care represent the largest market
sector followed by the pharmaceuticals segment.

Some of the major players in the in vitro testing market are Bio-Rad Laboratories, In
Vitro Technologies, Gene Logic Inc., HTG Inc., Accelrys Software Inc., Mattek Corporation,
Covance Inc., Charles River Laboratories International Inc., Xenobiotic Detection Systems,
Xenometrix, among others.
