Global Cell Culture Market: Snapshot
The global market for cell culture is experiencing a massive overhaul. A prominent transition is evident in the market in terms of product differentiation and new consumable and instrument launches. The market has been gaining substantially from the rising application of cell culture technology in drug discovery, cancer diagnosis, and the production of biologics.
Over the coming years, the increasing usage of cell culture in a number of applications, such as creating model systems for research, stem cell research, genetic engineering, and the study of cellular structures and functions are likely to boost this market substantially over the next few years. Apart from this, the rising investment by life sciences companies for research, development, and innovation in stem cells and the extensive industry and academic collaborations are also expected to drive the market’s growth in the near future.
The opportunity in the global market for cell culture, which stood at US$6.09 bn in 2013, is anticipated to proliferate at a CAGR of 7.10% over the period from 2014 to 2022 and attain a value of US$11.31 bn by the end of the forecast period.
North America to Remain Dominant
Geographically, the global cell culture market boasts its presence across Asia Pacific, Latin America, Europe, North America, and the Rest of the World. With the presence of a large pool of biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and food and beverages companies, North America has been leading this market. The continual research activities for the development of biologics and drugs are likely to ensure the dominance of the North America market for cell culture over the period of the forecast.
The Europe market for cell culture, which held the second position in 2013, is also anticipated to witness a significant rise over the next few years. It is, however, the Asia Pacific market, which is projected to experience the growth at a higher pace than other regional markets in the years to come. Thanks to the improvement in the economic condition in various Asian countries, such as India and China, and the rising number of the contract research and contract manufacturing organizations in this region. China, Japan, Australia, and India have emerged as the prime cell culture domestic market in Asia Pacific and are expected to offer highly lucrative opportunities to the market players in the near future.
Demand for Cell Culture Media and Culture Systems to Report High Growth
Media, sera, and reagents are the main cell culture consumables available across the world. Among these, the demand for cell culture media is rising a higher pace than other consumables. Researchers anticipate the scenario to continue like this over the forthcoming years, thanks to the growing emphasis on animal derived component free (ADCF) media on the grounds of ethical and quality concerns.
In terms of instruments, culture systems, pipetting instruments, incubators, roller bottle equipment, cryostorage equipment, and biosafety cabinets have surfaced as the key segments of the global cell culture market. Culture systems witness the most prominent demand amongst these, thanks to the increasing uptake of automated culture systems and the technological innovations in designs and operations of cell culture instruments.
Becton, Dickinson and Co., Corning Life Sciences B.V., Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., GE Healthcare, EMD Millipore, Lonza Group Ltd., PromoCell GmbH, Sigma-Aldrich Co. LLC, VWR International LLC, Wheaton Industries Inc. are some of the prominent players operating in the global cell culture market.
The global cell culture market has grown significantly in the last ten years. The demand for artificial organs and biopharmaceuticals has boosted this market extensively in past and is likely to fuel its growth further in the coming years. Additionally, the rising usage of cell culture models in drug discoveries is expected to present an opportunity-rich market for major cell culture market players.
The global market for cell culture is mainly divided into the markets for cell culture consumables and cell culture instruments. Media, reagents, and sera are the key products of the global cell culture consumables market. Incubators, culture systems, pipetting instruments, biosafety cabinets, roller bottle equipment, and cryostorage equipment are the key segments of the global cell culture instruments market.
The media segment is further classified into chemically-defined media, lysogeny broth, classical media, protein-free media, specialty media, and serum-free media. The sera segment includes fetal bovine serum and other animal sera. Albumin, attachment factors, amino acids, cytokines and growth factors, thrombin, and protease inhibitors are the key products of the reagents segment.
Apart from this, the global cell culture market is also categorized on the basis of its regional distribution into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Rest of the World.
This research report aims at providing a clear picture of the global market for cell culture. It also assists the market participants in making crucial strategies rewarding decisions to gain a competitive edge over peers.
Overview of the Global Cell Culture market
The global cell culture market stood at US$6.1 bn in 2013. Analysts project this market to report a healthy rise between 2014 and 2022 at a CAGR of 7.10% and reach US$11.3 bn by the end of 2022.
The market for cell culture instruments is driven by technical advancement in designs and operations of various instruments available in this market. On the other hand, the rising application of cell culture media in developing research model systems and to study cellular structures and operations, genetic engineering, and stem cell research is stimulating the cell culture consumables market. The media segment has been leading the cell culture consumables market and is expected to maintain its dominance, posting the fastest growth over the forecast period.
The cell culture market in North America led the global market in 2013. However, the Asia Pacific market for cell culture is likely to report the fastest growth during the forecast period, primarily due to the improvement in the economic condition of developing nations in this region.
On the whole, the global cell culture market is poised to experience a healthy rise between 2014 and 2022. However, the ethical concerns over the usage of animal sources, coupled with the need for advanced production capabilities in order to meet the standards set by regulatory bodies, are anticipated to hamper the growth of this market in the coming years.
