Cell Culture Media Market – Summary


The significant impact of the advancing technologies on life science has developed methods through which cells can now be cultured in artificial mediums. Cells, tissues or organs are obtained generally from plants or animals and are given conducive environment in which they can grow and deliver desired results. Usually, the medium consists amino acids, vitamins, inorganic salts, glucose, and serum that act as a spring of growth factors, hormones, and attachment factors and the aim is to maintain the pH level and osmolality. Its widespread use in laboratories for research purposes, in pharmaceutical to develop new medicines and significant impact on the cost-cutting measures of several sectors have made this a market favorite. The global cell culture media market can now envision a leap from USD 703.1 million to USD 1290.1 million during the forecast period (2017-2023).


The stellar CAGR of 9.1% can be attributed to mainly biotechnology sector where increasing investment by the government and private players are assisting in research and development activities. Researches are primarily aimed at producing vaccines to curb the effects of various diseases. In India, as per the India Brand Equity Foundation, the said industry is accounted for USD 11 billion in 2016. On the other hand, new bio firms are mushrooming all across the globe who can generate the demand for cell culture media market considerably.


However, the research process incurs a high cost, and the chance of medium getting contaminated due to serum and a poor source of animal components can adversely impact the market. On the flip side, manufacturing base in emerging countries such as India and China costs surprisingly less than other regions in the world which can steer the market away from such deterrents.
