U.S. Microbiology Culture Market: Introduction
According to the report, the microbiology culture market in the U.S. was valued at US$ 2.3 Bn in 2020 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2021 to 2031. Microbiology cultures play a pivotal role, and are required for quality testing and production in several industries such as biopharmaceuticals, food, water, biotechnology, cosmetic, agriculture, and various other industries. Microbial culture promises a revolution in the agriculture and food industry. The microbiology culture market in the U.S. is likely to grow at rapid pace over the next few years, owing to advancement in microbial culture in various fields such as agriculture, bioenergy, and environmental monitoring.
Increase in clinical laboratories, rise in public-private partnership, surge in investments in life sciences activities, and growth in research & development activities are projected to drive the microbiology culture in the country in the near future. The emphasis on developing faster culture diagnostic tests to detect contamination is anticipated to propel the market in the U.S. in the next few years.
Technological Advancements to Drive U.S. Microbiology Culture Market
Advancements in technology is expected to augment the microbiology culture market in the U.S. during the forecast period. Culture collections have supported microbiology research in the past few years. Well-managed genetic resources and several databases of genes/genetic research are utilized to address the challenges in food, environmental, healthcare, education, and biodiversity industries. Microbial collection using culture techniques becomes very important, as it plays a vital role in highlighting the microbial diversity; for instance, as per World Data Center for microorganisms (WCDM), there is a collection of 790 microbes, which together hold more than 3 million strains. The CABI living resource collection has 28,000 strains of fungi in the microbiology research.
Microbial plastic production is another innovation driving the microbiology culture market in the U.S. Potential exploration of microorganisms such as bacteria in replacing the non-biodegradable plastics will be beneficial for the environment. Mixed pure microbial culture (bacteria, algae) drives the sustainable production of plastics. This will enhance the production capabilities of various strains.
Significant development in the co-cultivation method is likely to augment the microbial culture market. Co-cultivation of the engineered microbial strains lead to improvement in the product yield. Natural and artificial co-cultivation system improves the bioproduction and optimizes the strains to yield final product.
Key Strategies Adopted by Prominent Players to Drive U.S. Microbiology Culture Market
In September 2020, DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences announced launch of various culture media in dairy culture and probiotics formulations in China. The cultures including YO-MIX PRIME, YO-MIX FAST 1, DuPont Danisco LPC 800, and HOWARU Bifido offer significant opportunities in the market.
Moreover, in October 2021, Thermo Fisher Scientific entered into a five-year agreement with Clever Culture Systems (CCS) and became an exclusive distributor of APAS Independence in the U.S. APAS Independence is an automated culture system, which is likely to be placed in 1,500 laboratories in the U.S., and will strengthen the Thermo Fisher microbiology product portfolio.
In December 2021, Neogen Corporation entered into definitive agreement with 3M, which will separate its food safety business and combine with the Neogen Corporation. This step will make the company an innovative leader in the food industry. Chr. Hansen Holding A/S announced plans to extend the microbial platform and strengthen the cultures and probiotics, dairy enzymes, and fermentation through mergers & acquisitions. In November 2021, Chr. Hansen launched its SWEETY Culture, next generation product to cater the development of accurate products.
Food & Water Testing Segment to Lead U.S. Microbiology Culture Market
In terms of application, the microbiology culture market in the U.S. has been classified into food & water testing, bioenergy & agricultural research, cosmetics industry, pharmaceutical industry, and others. The food & water testing segment accounted for the largest market share in 2020, owing to the growing food industry in the U.S., which demands safety for consumption and microbial culture technique. The incidence and frequency of foodborne intoxication and spoilage caused by infectious agents need microbiology culture to diagnose the bacteria infection for food safety.
Cosmetics is a booming industry in the U.S. This is anticipated to increase the usage of microbiology culture in the industry. Cosmetic microbiology ensures the safety of cosmetic products and ensures compliance. This will encourage manufacturers to conduct microbial culture testing to ensure detection of pathogen affecting the product.
Southern U.S to Lead U.S. Microbiology Culture Market
The Southern U.S. dominated the microbiology culture market in the U.S. in 2020, accounting for the largest share. Rise in investments in research & development, growing life sciences industry, surge in need of drugs, vaccines, and antibiotics; and the booming food industry are projected to boost the growth of the market in the region during the forecast period. Moreover, the presence of prominent players offering microbiology culture media for diagnosis & identifying treatment of chronic diseases and rise in bacterial infections propel the market in Southern U.S.
The market in Midwestern U.S. is anticipated to grow at a moderate pace during the forecast period due to rise in prevalence of COVID-19, booming cosmetic industry, surge in baby boomers, and presence of prominent players. Moreover, faster adoption and awareness about microbial culture in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic diseases and its efficacy in bioenergy and water testing are expected to drive the microbiology culture market in Midwestern U.S. during the forecast period.
The microbiology culture market in the U.S. is fragmented due to presence of various large, mid-size, and small-size players in the market. Key players operating in the market are Becton, Dickinson and Company, Merck KGaA, bioMerieux SA, and Bio-Rad Laboratories, Chr. Hansen Holding A/S, DuPont, Kerry Group, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc., Neogen Corporation, and Scharlab S.L.
