Cell culture is the process by which cells are grown under appropriate conditions. It involves cultivation of plant or animal cells under favorable lab conditions. Cell tissue culture requires a suitable cell or tissue which is grown in a suitable medium under aseptic conditions along with various regulators that maintain the growth of cells. In addition, the availability of various nutrients has to be checked regularly so that subculturing can be performed as and when the need arises. Cell and tissue culture has its applications in various fields, such as treatment of diseases, production of vaccines and antibodies, drug discovery, and others. Cell and tissue culture supplies refer to the equipment that is required for culturing. Globally, factors such as increasing R&D in the field of cell and tissue engineering and rising number  of cell and tissue culture applications have helped in the growth of cell and tissue culture supplies market. 

North America dominates the global cell and tissue culture supplies market. The U.S. represents the largest market for cell and tissue culture supplies, followed by Canada, in North America. This is due to technological advancement and increasing R&D in the field of cell and tissue culture in the region. Asia is expected to experience high growth rates in the next five years in the global cell and tissue culture supplies market. This is due to increasing outsourcing of biopharmaceutical in the region.
