Market Overview:

The global cell culture market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2018 to 2030. The classical media and salts segment is expected to dominate the market in terms of revenue share during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the increasing demand for classical media and salts for biopharmaceutical manufacturing, tissue culture & engineering, gene therapy, and other applications. The serum-free media segment is projected to grow at a higher CAGR than other segments during the forecast period owing to its growing demand in stem cell research and regenerative medicine applications. North America accounted for the largest share of the global cell culture market in 2017, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific.

Global Cell Culture Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Cell culture is the process of growing cells in a controlled environment. Cells can be grown in a variety of environments, including liquid or solid cultures, and can be used for research purposes, drug development, or regenerative medicine.

Classical Media & Salts:

Classical media and salts are the basic ingredients used in cell culture. They consist of nutrients, antibiotics, pH control agents and other components. The most commonly used nutrient is MEM (MEMbrane Extender), which is a mixture of amino acids, glucose and lipids.

Serum-free Media:

Serum-free media is a chemically defined culture medium that contains no animal or human serum. It has been widely used in the production of recombinant proteins, antibiotics, and monoclonal antibodies. The advantages of using this product are it reduces the chances of contamination by eliminating the use of animal products and provides consistent results every time which makes it ideal for research purposes.

Application Insights:

The biopharmaceutical manufacturing segment dominated the global market in 2017. This is attributed to factors such as increasing government support for promoting innovation in this sector and a growing number of research activities pertaining to cell culture techniques. For instance, according to an article published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in 2015, it was observed that around 90% of all biopharmaceutical products are developed using mammalian cell cultures.

Cell-based research has led to major advancements not only in therapeutics but also in other fields such as cancer biology and infectious disease studies. The advent of new technologies such as 3D printing has further accelerated this progress by providing researchers with detailed information about cellular structures and functions from multiple angles at one go.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. This can be attributed to the presence of a large number of biopharmaceutical manufacturers, which are major contributors to this industry. The U.S.

Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a lucrative rate over the forecast period owing to increasing government funding for stem cell research and development as well as gene therapy studies in countries such as China and India.

The European market also contributed significantly towards revenue generation through collaborations between pharmaceutical companies & universities/research institutes with regard high-quality standards required by regulatory agencies like EMEA1st (European Medicines Agency) or FDA (Food and Drug Administration).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for biopharmaceuticals: The global market for biopharmaceuticals is expected to reach 2.8 billion by 2020, according to a MarketsandMarkets research study. This growth is being driven by the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, such as cancer and diabetes, and the need for better treatments. Cell culture technology is essential in the production of biopharmaceuticals, so this growing demand is benefiting the cell culture market as well.
  • Advances in cell culturing techniques: The development of new culturing techniques has been a key driver of growth for the cell culture market in recent years. These advances have made it possible to cultivate cells more efficiently and at lower costs, which has led to increased use of cell culture technology across a variety of industries.
  • Growing focus on regenerative medicine: Regenerative medicine is an emerging field that focuses on repairing or replacing damaged tissues and organs using stem cells and other cellular therapies. The potential applications of regenerative medicine are vast, and this area of research is receiving increasing attention from both private investors and government funding agencies worldwide. This growing interest in regenerative medicine will likely spur further growth for the cell culture market in coming years .
