A detailed analysis of the cell culture industry structure has been conducted. This includes the biotechnology reagents, media and the sera used. Revenues are broken down by global region. Sales figures are estimated for the five-year period from 2011 through 2016.
Applications for the cell culture industry—media, sera and reagents used in biotechnology—are also discussed in the report, with an emphasis on the usage in the research, production and contract segments. The report also covers significant patents in each segment.
REASONS FOR DOING THIS STUDY
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.
This study contributes to the areas of market growth in the cell culture industry from the point of view of manufacturers and users. Biotechnological companies, physicians, the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries, hospitals and research institutes will find this study to be of interest.
SCOPE OF THE STUDY
The scope of this study encompasses the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical markets. BCC analyzes each market and its applications by its need for development of new medications through cell culture techniques, the regulatory environment, technology involved, market projections and market share. Technological issues include the latest trends and developments.
BCC conducted a comprehensive literature search, which included technical newsletters and journals, and many other sources. Data was collected through interviews and correspondence with various analytical, chemical, pharmaceutical and biotechnical experts. Projections were based on estimates such as the current number of end users, potential end users, mergers and acquisitions, and market trends.
Many companies within the industry were surveyed to obtain data for this study. Included were manufacturers and end users of biopharmaceuticals, and pharmaceutical companies through their production, research and contract manufacturing/research lines. Data were gathered from various industry sources. BCC spoke with officials and physicians within the industry, consulted newsletters, company literature, product literature and a host of technical articles, journals, indexes and abstracts. Exhaustive investigations of databases by key terminology were completed. In addition, data were compiled from current financial, trade and government sources.
