The technique of growing cells under controlled conditions, outside the natural environment is known as cell culture. Cells of interest are first isolated from living tissues, and then maintained in laboratory controlled conditions. The conditions for culturing varies; however, in most cases, a suitable vessel consisting of a medium or substrate, supplying gases, hormones, growth factors, essential nutrients such as minerals, carbohydrates, amino acids, and vitamins in a regulated physio-chemical environment is used. Cell culture provides essential insights regarding biochemistry and physiology of cells, which otherwise is difficult to understand in in vivo conditions. Moreover, these techniques assist in studying the effect of drugs on crucial factors such as population density, culture conditions, and growth rate. Media supplements or cell culture supplements play a vital role in assisting mammalian cells to produce proteins, which are the essential constituents of biologic drugs. Media supplements aid in regulating and customizing growth conditions for the cells, maintaining healthy cells for a longer duration, and improving growth and vitality of cells. Various factors are taken into consideration while adding culture supplements including state of addition (emulsion, solution, or powder), components of the supplement, and amount. Recombinant proteins have been extensively used in cell culture as supplements to boost consistency, productivity, and growth. The development of serum-free cell lines and culture media has been driven by the use of these recombinants. 

Rise in demand in cell culture projects for obtaining increased productivity drives the global recombinant cell culture supplements market. Moreover, increase in usage of animal-free supplements in the manufacture of vaccines, biopharmaceuticals, and stem cells contributes to the growth of the market. Added advantages of these supplements compared to conventional counterparts i.e., animal derived supplements, is projected to drive adoption of recombinant media in cell culture. Other factors fueling the growth of the global recombinant cell culture supplements market are rise in investment in life science R&D and increase in demand in the biotherapeutics industry. However, high cost associated with research in cell biology and consideration of several technicalities which are necessary for cell culture are expected to hamper the growth of the global market.
