Early toxicity testing is used during clinical trials, where the toxicity of the compounds present in the test product is evaluated. Different tests are conducted to check the adverse effects of the compound on different aspects of human health. Some tests are also useful to check if the entity has toxic potentials such as genotoxicity, carcinogenicity, neurotoxicity, and systemic toxicity. These toxicity tests are important for the welfare of human health and environment.

The increase in awareness among the regulatory authorities concerning environment and human health welfare is the major factor that fuels the growth of this market. The early toxicity testing market experienced moderate growth in the recent years due to the replacement of in vivo models by in vitro models and technological advancement in in vitro and in silico techniques. However, certain limitations of preclinical trials and limited awareness about the benefits of using early toxicity tests are estimated to hamper the market growth.

In vivo segment dominated the market with maximum share in 2015 and is anticipated to continue being the dominant segment in 2022 in terms of revenue. As the physiological properties of humans and animals are similar, the responses of the animals when exposed to test compounds are similar to the responses of humans. This aspect makes this technique a more reliable method for toxicity testing. In addition, this technique is a cost-effective way to test the toxicity of test entities.

Pharmaceutical industry is expected to be the fastest growing segment throughout the analysis period and accounts for almost two-thirds of the total share of the market in 2022. This is due to the increase in number of clinical trials for drug development. During this process, early toxicity testing can help reduce the risk of later stage failure for drug development, which predominantly fuel the growth of the pharmaceutical industry market.

In 2015, Europe displayed maximum contribution in the early toxicity testing market in total revenue generated that year. Asia-Pacific region observes fast paced growth in the early toxicity testing market registering a CAGR of 8.1%. Rise in disposable income, improvement in healthcare expenditure, and increase in adoption rate of in vitro and in silico techniques are the major reasons for the growth of early toxicity testing market in the Asia-Pacific region.
