Increasing Production of Antibodies for Disease Treatment Aiding Market Growth

Cell culture technology using various culture media has been proven to be a reliable and robust technology. Cell culture technology can help in the development of monoclonal antibodies. These antibodies can be produced synthetically using cell culture media in laboratories.

Monoclonal antibodies have been used as therapeutics against various autoimmune diseases, as the body lacks the function of producing monoclonal antibodies.

Hence, increasing demand for monoclonal antibodies as a therapeutic agent using various cell culture media will fuel the growth of the cell culture media market.

North America and Europe to Lead Cell Culture Media Market

North America and Europe hold a large revenue share of the global cell culture media market, owing to the rising diagnosis and treatment of chronic diseases in these regions. According to WHO, chronic diseases will increase from 3.78 million in 1990 to an expected 7.63 million by the end of 2020.

Increased R&D investments, government initiatives for imparting awareness about cell-culture based vaccines, and rise in healthcare spending are some of the factors that are driving the growth of the cell culture media market in these regions.

However, the significantly large patient pool in the Asia Pacific regions will offer potential growth opportunities for players in the cell culture media market.

Competitive Landscape of Cell Culture Media Market

The cell culture media market is consolidated in nature, with the top players holding over 65% of the market share in 2018. Collaborations with pharmaceutical product manufacturers remains the main focus of players that only offer cell culture media.

However, many players are focused on developing in-house cell culture media platforms to offer unique and cost-effective cell culture media products. Other players are focused on geographical expansion through distribution agreements.

For instance, in May 2017, Lonza acquired cell and gene contract manufacturer - Pharma Cell - to enhance its production capability and reach.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

A majority of companies are expanding their business by increasing collaborations between contract manufacturing organizations and key players. Other players are focusing on increasing their product portfolios.  Based on this trend, North America and Europe will hold substantial share of the global cell culture media market through 2029. Cost-effective and enhanced cell culture media will favor market growth. Increased funding for research & development toward drug development will help the cell culture media market grow at a substantial rate. However, at the same time, the high cost of R&D and concerns about sterility will hamper market growth to some extent. There will also be some failure of drugs in pipeline analysis.
