Serum-free Media Market to Reach Valuation of US$ 660.4 Mn by 2031: Transparency Market Research

Serum-free Media Market: Introduction

According to the report, the global serum-free media market was valued at US$ 320 Mn in 2020 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 7% from 2021 to 2031. Serum-free media contains all the essential nutrients such as amino acids, carbohydrates, and lipids as in normal cell culture media, except serum. This type of media lacks various growth factors such as vascular epidermal growth factors (VEGF) and bone growth factors (BGF) that are essential for the normal growth of cells. Hence, serum-free media is called selectively optimized media, as it is selective for a particular type of cell culture.

Serum-free media is used in various applications, major application being the production of recombinant therapeutic proteins. These are also used in suspension & adherent cultures for culturing hybridoma and various white blood cells. In terms of media type, the global serum-free media market has been classified into CHO cell media, protein expression media, immunology media, insect cell media, hybridoma media, stem cell media, and chemically defined media. The CHO cell media segment accounted for a significant share of the global serum-free media market in 2020.

Based on end-user, the global serum-free media market has been divided into biopharma industry, clinical research organizations, research centers, and others. The biopharma industry segment held a major share of the global serum-free media market in 2020.
