The report points out that the growing demand for food and limited availability of nonrenewable natural resources will augment the growth of the global biotechnology market. The favorable regulatory scenario governing biotechnology R&D and applications will also boost the market. However, the report mentions that ethical issues associated with clinical trials, coupled with the long research and development lead time, might restrain the growth of the market during the forecast horizon. The global biotechnology market has a huge opportunity to grow with the emergence of biosimilars and increasing application of biotechnology in medical sciences. Cloning, stem cell technology, and nanotechnology are expected to define the future outlook of the market.

In terms of technology, the report segments the global biotechnology market into polymerase chain reaction technology, fermentation technology, tissue engineering and regeneration technology, nanobiotechnology, chromatography, cell-based assay, DNA sequencing technology, and others including fingerprinting and enzyme technology. The demand for nanobiotechnology is projected to rapidly increase in the near future.

On the basis of application, the global biotechnology market is broadly categorized into bioagriculture, biopharmacy, bioindustrial, and bioservices. In 2011, the biopharmaceuticals segment accounted for a 60% share in the market owing to an increase in government funding, widespread technological advancements, and availability of cheap labor in developing economies such as India, China, and Thailand. Increasing demand for food in developing countries is expected to boost the market. Bioseeds offer greater advantages compared to conventional seeds and hence will register exponential growth in demand during the forecast period. This will propel the growth of the bioagriculture segment. By 2018, the segment is projected to reach a valuation of US$27.46 bn.

The report studies the global biotechnology market by segmenting it into four key regions: North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Rest of the World. North America leads the overall market thanks to the growing focus on renewable chemicals of countries in the region. In 2011, the region accounted for a 42% share in the market. 

The report profiles some of the key players in the global biotechnology market such as Amgen Inc., Abbott Laboratories Inc., AstraZeneca plc, Celgene Corporation, Biogen Idec Inc., F. Hoffman La Roche Ltd, Genzyme Corporation, Genentech Inc., Gilead Sciences, Johnson & Johnson, GlaxoSmithKline plc, Pfizer Inc., Lonza Group Ltd., Novartis International AG, Merck & Co. Inc., Novo Nordisk A/S, and Sanofi. Insightful details about the key players, including their financial overview, business strategy, and recent developments, have been included in the report.
