Plant Stem Cells are undifferentiated cells that are located at the meristems of the vegetation. They have the capability of self-renewing themselves and thus replacing a specific part of plant cell that needs repair. All plant cells irrespective of their origin, carry with them certain epigenetic factors that enable them the self-renewal capacity. The Plant Stem Cell market focusses on this ability of plant cells and thus processed extracts from the buds, shoots, roots are in great demand and are widely used for topical uses.

The advancement in technology utilizes either the regenerated plants developed by the plant stem cells or the secondary metabolite generated by the single cells during culturing. They have been proven beneficial for skin care, hair growth and other needs of cosmetic industries. The Plant cell extracts have been obtained through complex processes of cultivation and extraction of required extract. The mostly used plant sources are alpine rose, grape, swiss apple, edelweiss, gardenia, lilac etc. Of these the swiss apple and grape dominate the field of plant stem cell usage in industry.
The plant stem cells are much more versatile and powerful than the whole plant. Hence, they have been used in a wide range of applications. The Plant stem cells based on their location can be categorized as root apical meristems, shoot apical meristems and vascular meristems. The root and shoot meristems are the most explored segment than vascular meristems. Their totipotent nature makes them a vital compound for industry and thus, based on their applications industry can be classified as cosmetics, pharmaceutical and nutrition. The cosmetic industry makes the maximum use of plant stem cell technology and derives important products for skin, hair etc. Many research projects are being done to further strengthen the field and explore for more products.
The plant stem cell market is an emerging market and is continually upgraded with further researches on different plants for exploring their capacities to serve the market. It has been proven that naturally occurring botanicals containing antioxidant levels have the ability to protect human skin cells from UV-induced oxidative stress, neutralize free radicals and reverse the effects of photoaging. Consequently, there has been an increasing demand of natural compounds by rising population acts as a major driving force for this industry.
Plant stem cell cultures with its positive results for use in cosmetic industry have presented a wide array of opportunities for skin care and hair care treatments that are contaminant free and use biosustainable products. Hence, the growing demand for anti-aging, skin care, hair care and other related cosmetic products by the population acts as a stimuli for this market.
Though many plants are cultivated by industries, for research purposes, however due to limited knowledge for the extraction processes and improper cultivation methods, the whole setup becomes economically unsustainable. Over the past decades, the cosmetics and aesthetics were more women focused fields, however, the gaining popularity among males for cosmetic products acts as an untapped segment for the growth of plant stem cell market.
Geographically, Global Plant Stem Cell market can be classified as:
- North America
- Asia pacific
- Latin America
- Middle East and Africa
The North America and Europe have the highest market share globally, the main contributing factor is advanced technology that allows research on cultivation and extraction of components from plants relatively easy by using improved tools. Also, the demand for naturally obtained products among people contribute towards Plant Stem Cell market. The increasing plant stem cell industry relies upon the research work. However, the Asia pacific region can be the fastest growing if proper funding and international collaborative measures and research opportunities are provided.
