Market Synopsis of Cell Culture Media Market
A cell culture medium is a growth medium designed to support the growth of cells. A cell culture medium is composed of appropriate composition of amino acids, vitamins, inorganic salts, glucose, serum, etc. It may contain additional supplementary factors such as growth factors, hormones, etc., depending on the need of different types of cells.
Cell culture medium are classified into natural media and synthetic media. Natural media consist of naturally occurring biological fluids, while synthetic media have additional components such as serum proteins, carbohydrates, cofactors, vitamins, salts etc. The Natural media has poor reproducibility due to lack of knowledge about exact composition in this media.
Artificial media are further sub-segmented into various types such as serum containing media, serum-free media, chemically defined media, and protein-free media. To overcome the drawbacks of serum in the media, a number of serum-free media have been developed. Chemically defined media contains inorganic and organic ingredients. Protein-free media only contains non-protein constituents to promote superior cell growth and protein expression.
The market for cell culture media is growing at an impressive rate due to various factors such as growing number of biotech firms, growing demand for biotechnology products, high returns on investments, technological advancements, etc. However, contamination of cell culture media, presence of heavy trace elements, high cost of final products, lack of scientific understanding of natural media, issues of reproducibility, quality and specificity, especially, of natural media, scarcity of serum and animal components, ethical issues regarding use of animal components, etc may hamper the growth of the market.
The global cell culture media market is growing exponentially and is expected to grow at the same pace during the forecast period at a CAGR of ~ 9.1%
