Global Markets for Media, Sera and Reagents in Biotechnology

  • The global market for media, sera and reagents used in biotechnology was valued at $2.3 billion in 2009, $2.5 billion in 2010 and is estimated to have reached nearly $2.8 billion at the end of 2011. The market is expected to reach $4.2 billion by 2016, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.8%.
  • The reagents market reached $1 billion in 2010 and nearly $1.2 billion in 2011. It is expected to grow to $2 billion by 2016, a CAGR of 11.3%.
  • The media segment reached $820.7 million in 2010 and $897.4 million in 2011. It is expected to grow to $1.4 billion by 2016, a CAGR of 9.4%.
Demand for cell culture products, namely media, sera and reagents, is increasing, with the increasing demand for biopharmaceuticals.  Cell culture, a crucial component of the life sciences industry, has witnessed major development during the past three decades.  R&D spending, along with increasing competition, patent expiries, new technologies and an international marketplace are moving the cell culture process in a new direction.  As cell culture technologies evolved, a number of disciplines such as cell biology, genetic engineering, protein chemistry, genomics and chemical engineering have been successfully incorporated into the cell culture field.

Acquisition strategies and collaborations by companies are also covered in this report.  This study also discusses the strength and weaknesses of the different types of media used in light of the new technologies, growing competition and changing customer needs.
